Summary: This camera has pretty good features for the price. I haven't had any problems with the audio or video formats. The video format is actually XVID, which is an open-source implementation of mpeg4 video, any system can play the video with the right codecs, and more and more hardware players can play...
Summary: I sent this product out on July 15th, they sold thier name on Aug 22nd. It was supposed to be back to me within 14 days, they kept it for 5 weeks, then said the name was sold, and they never even opened my package I sent to them.
Pros: Was a good camera for 2 weeks
Cons: This camera stopped being able to be recharged after only 2 weeks of ownership. I sent this camera to vivitar for repair and recieved a letter back from them 1 1/2 months after sending it to them along with my still broken camera. "Attention valued Vivitar customer: On August 22nd 2008, the Vivit...
Summary: The sound is very low, but it is there. I installed the XVID codec and then used VirtualDub(opensource) to amplify the sound by 20 decibels. Then I re-encoded the video with the XVID MPEG-4 video compression and the Mpeg layer 3 (MP3) audio compression.
Pros: Good quality video, small form factor. File sizes are very reasonable.
Cons: Night mode lags the display badly. Have not tried recording in this mode. The volume in the videos is extremely low. Flash is sketchy.
good brand name, bad sound, bad format, bad sound, no sound, bad

Summary: This looks like a nice video camera. Don't judge a book by the cover. I have made several movies with this camera and none of the sound came out even loud enough to hear when the movie is played back, to top it off, the movie format it produces movies in is AVI format, and microsoft media will not...
Summary: Wish it would be better in low light situations.
Pros: For the price I'm not complaining. Decent video quality. It lacks a little in low light situations, but if you'll be using it in the day, its perfect. Files are .avi, so easy to get vids on the net. I'm going to be using it to take to the drag racing track at night, so it might not work too well ...
Summary: I really like this camera/camcorder. Great resolution, Good Price, Easy to use. The only shortcoming of this camera is the LED flash. Its a little weak and only works well when in close proximity to the subject.
