Summary: Not even useful as a paper weight. I have seen better digital cameras as prizes in claw machines. Bought 2 for my boys for Christmas. The video and sound are SO BAD it seems like a video tape from the 1990s.
Summary: I purchased it because it had the features I wanted. It has an attractive shape and the included software is excellent. However, the camera itself is disappointing in almost every way. The body of the camera is made of a flimsy material and the viewing screen door lacks a real hinge or latch.
Summary: I bought this camera in hopes of recording my piano lessons and be able to practice at home....didnt happen. the sound quality is AWFUL! when i tranfered the files to my computer the sound didnt match the person talking. the image quality is also bad. it feels like a toy. i'm returning it today!
Summary: Paid even more for this at Target I think almost $60. Mic doesn't even work, video is like 1/5 the quality I get on my iPhone, of course--there's no audio, so you can't even compare. Too bad, it was a Christmas present for my daughter and it's going back tomorrow.
Summary: I bought this camera for 25.00 at Walmart on close out. My Cannon died and I needed a video camera to finish a job and I was really short on cash. I did not expect much out of a 25.00 digital camera.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder in hopes of catching my son's school play on video without spending a fortune. I didn't need all the bells & whisltes--just a good, dependable camera. I know the Vivitar name and have been happy with their products in the past. What a mistake!
