Summary: Poor quality of everything. Poor video. Poor sound. Poor workmanship. Is *ONLY* powered by batteries. Doesn't provide a live feed to the HDMI port. Doesn't come with an adapter for the HDMI (who has a micro c lying around?). Doesn't come with any memory on the camera.
Summary: What good is a video camera that can only be powered by AAA batteries? No ability to power from an AC source. No ability to power from USB even though it has a USB connection. What fool would make something like this that will end up costing a lot of money to run?
Summary: Bought this camera at a local retail store in town...not on amazon. Tried to look up the reviews everywhere online before I bought this but couldn't find any so I went ahead and bought it. BAD CHOICE.
Summary: I was given this camera as a Christmas present. I have played with it and tried to get the quality of the video and the pictures to improve. Every setting looked the same. Grainy and unwatchable. The person that bought it for me also bought one for themselves.
Summary: Supposed to 12 MVPxl is more like 1. Just not the quality I'd expect from vivatar. Doesn't even feel comfortable in hand. Total waste. Not blaming amazon though. Will still b loyal shopper. Piss on eBay!
Summary: O.K., finally there are some poor reviews of this piece of monkey crap. Received as a gift from my amazing grandmother. How was she to know that this camera took worse video than an old VHS camcorder? When I got it originally, I was wondering why the picture looked so awful.
Summary: This is NOT, by a long shot, the best digital camcorder I have used. That said, I only paid $12 for it, and for what I paid, it was an amazing deal. The picture quality isn't great, but it's not terrible either, if you film under good light.
