Excerpt: The Vivitar brand is known for making affordable HD video cameras . However, the old adage of you get what you pay for holds true. The Vivitar DVR 790 is the top of the line for the DVR700 series of camcorders, and we are pleasantly surprised to find a budget-conscious camcorder that can shoot in HD and 3D. Aside from the 3D shooting feature on this camcorder, the rest of the specs and features are below average.
Pros: The 3D feature on the Vivitar DVR790 is a surprising bonus.
Cons: There is no optical zoom and only a 4x digital zoom.
