Summary: A totally acceptable camera for the price. I got two and they survived a hot, dusty environment (Burningman). The photos have a fun, grainy, almost Polaroid feel. I'd say it's way better than getting disposable film cameras.
I didn't expect great quality photos but there aren't even good quality
21 August 2014
Summary: We ordered the blue camera but received a black camera. Although it arrived in clamshell packaging it was scuffed on the front and back. I didn't expect great quality photos but there aren't even good quality. When saving the photos to my SD card the picture files were corrupted somehow. I'll be returing this and spending a bit more money on a better quality used camera for my 5 yo.
Summary: We got this for our nephew. He is 6 years old. Note: I am not giving this 5 stars because I had assumed that the 100 picture ability in the advertisement meant that it's internal memory was enough to hold some photos. Not the case. I found an old 1G SD card and then got 707 pictures at the highest resolution. So that was more then okay. The 4.1 mega pixels looks great on my computer, even when I zoom in. I have not tried printing but don't foresee any issues.
Summary: Considering the price, I was not expecting a whole lot. But this thing was worthless. Mine happened to be defective. And I purchased a new one, but it was scratched right out of the packaging. When I could get it to come on, it would cut off soon after that. And when I used the zoom features, it would make it malfunction too, and the camera would cut off. It reminded me of something with an electrical short in it.
Summary: Images were horrible. Blurry and Grainy. I cant believe they say it has 4MP. My old 2MP camera phone does better. I found great used cameras were less money, higher resolution and better options.
Summary: I bought this camera from a competitor a year ago and the picture quality is okay. However, the software that came with it so I could transfer the pictures to my computer now "quits unexpectedly" and I am no longer able to view, print or transfer any of the photos that are my computer. When I notified Vivitar support dept., they offered no solution to my problem. I will never get another vivitar camera again.
Summary: Purchased together with an sd card that amazon bundled with it, and the camera was not even working.it said card error, and it took one photo, that is it. I should have read the reviews before i bought it. I could not even return it, because we were on vacation when i opened it, and the packaging is lost.
