Not 720p!

rdaveh, Amazon
30 November 2010
  • Summary: I guess the old saying is true, you get what you pay for. Amazon's description (as well as many other site's) says this camera has "720p HD Video Recording". This is not true. The highest resolution this has is 640X480 interlaced. Neither the packaging nor Vivitar's site ever claims it's 720p HD, so I guess it's partly my fault for not doing my homework before buying. That being said, I've seen plenty of 480i recorders that shoot very good video.

Save Your Money And Look For Something Better

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought one of these digital camcorders and at first I was fairly impressed by how easy it was to use and the better than average video quality. Then I heard the audio... Or lack of it. Actually all I heard from the audio was a static hiss. Thinking I had gotten a bad camcorder somehow, I exchanged it for another. The second camera had the same problem. These camcorders either have a serious defect in the audio or Vivitar is using really low quality microphones in them.

LiveSpan / you're A-OK! - & Amazon.con connected relationship

Edward J. Smith, Amazon
15 March 2010
  • Summary: I got my Vivitar DVR518 Digital Video Camcorder via - LiveSpan. I first had questions on shipping timelines. But, upon contact seeking that knowledge I was very impressed. Not only did I get (an) answer, I got (THE) answer. For a product of this quality, to sell for this price, is truly amazing & prompted me to enter (their domain) to see what else was their? Da' it's ON! This camcorder is everything that I want a camcorder to be.

Vivitar DVR518 Digital

e-bit, Bondfaro
4 July 2011
  • Summary: Para quem deseja produzir filmes caseiros ela serve bem.
  • Pros: Baixo custo e uso de cartão de memória tornam bem fácil o uso da filmadora.
  • Cons: Pela necessidade de ser ágil e compacta, complica algumas funções básicas, como record/pause, mas nada que torne impossível o manuseio.
