Summary: This little camcorder is one of the best I have ever used. The sound quality is unbelievable. I have tried the insignia 720 and 1080,as well as DXG and other's. but for over all performance, this one is the best.
Summary: This was a gift for my sister-in-law who teaches special ed. They do a lot of fun and creative things in her class and she wanted something to capture memories. Since I am not using it all I can say is it arrived promptly and looks great!
Summary: This little guy has more than met my expectation. Honestly, I didn't think it would be very good, but I only wanted it for personal use, so I didn't want to splurge. But it's been working suprisingly well for me. I don't use it a ton, but every time I need it, it does its job. The battery life is pretty impressive, too. I think it's more than what I paid for, but I'm not complaining.
Summary: Graphics and picture quality is dreadful. Broke software cd when opening package awaiting cd since wk received camera still No cd. The customer service for vivitar wasawful too. Call 3 times still no replacement cd. Do yourself a favor dont but this crap camera!
Summary: I like the camera so far. I received it today in the mail and so far so good. The only bad thing is the lighting in the dark but thats not too much of a problem. I only paid $30 for it off ebay and I think it is perfect for recording things :) I say its a go if you can't afford a flip video like I cant!
Summary: I owned a Vivitar camera many years ago. This before the digital explosion of current days. This Vivitar camera was so simple, useful and inexpensive. This prompted me to purchase the Vivitar DVR-865HD Camcorder. This Camcorder is certainly cost effective selling for under $125. The camcorder is user friendly with simple and precise control buttons. The 8X Digital Zoom was a nice suprise. This product really zooms in quite well.
Summary: Vivitar DVR865HD 8.1MP Camcorder with 8x Digital Zoom (Black) This little camera takes terrible quality videos so that the playback on a computer is pixalized (And it really does not look good if you want to add a video to youtube). The zoom is bad. The layout is really bad- I found it very hard to navigate around the menu's, Not only was it slow but it was confusing. You have to buy a big memory card too or it can't store much video.
Summary: If I were to compare and rate it accordingly, this camera would get only 2 stars. Just based on my experience with this camera alone it rates good which is surprising considering the other cameras I have. The 8MP and HD video look pretty decent. The battery life is excellent. Holding this style of camera takes a little getting used to & is awkward when taking stills.
Summary: I bought this camera at radio shack on black Friday for $79 so I wasn't expecting a whole lot and that is what I got. It takes pretty crappy video especially indoors. very grainy and bad quality. I would rather spend twice as much which is still not very much cash and get a flip. My wife just bought a flip ultra hd and it is much much better but doesn't really have much of a zoom function but the video quality is very very good compared to the Vivitar POS.
