Great Vivitar camera

Ian Iceman "Ian Iceman", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this on e-bay for £6! Postage was £4 more, but included were 4X Energiser batteries, which still had the price tag of £3.99 on them, so it was very cheap! The menus are very good, easy to find your way around, and the settings are good enough for anyone needing a point-and-shoot camera.

  • Summary: This is the first digital camera I've ever owned and am pleased at how simple it is to use. It's a neat size and easy to slip into a pocket without being too bulky. The picture quality is excellent for daytime photos. However, the only downside that I've discovered is when using the flash.

This is how budget cameras should be

  • Excerpt: Now as far as cheap digital cameras go this is a good one. Its 5 megapixel resolution may seem small these days but for a basic point and shoot camera its ideal. The picture quality is very good for a camera of this price.
  • Pros: Cheap, easy to use, great picture quality
  • Cons: Battery life could be better

Great Little Camera

  • Summary: Ok, firstly I have the experiance to review a digital camera to start with. The 5199 is fine for every day pictures as long as you adjust the settings to the maximum output, you then get great colour rendition, the pictures are not exactly pin sharp, but having used many other small digitals, you...

  • Excerpt: Short Review: When I brought it I was looking for at least a decent digital camera and that's what this is, decent. I brought it for about £30 (round about) inc. delivery off the internet.
  • Pros: High megapixel camera, large screen, seems pretty robust .
  • Cons: Not very well in the dark & the flash can be too powerful .

Good value for money

  • Summary: For such a cheap Camera, the quality really is quite good. Ideal for snapshots during a day out. And it fits in my normal handbag. However, there is just one problem. There is no viewfinder, and that poses difficulties for me.

  • Excerpt: Rubbish, the booklet is poor. The instructions are not written well. The quality is terrible AND the flashlight has just stopped working for no reason. It doesnt help that the batteries lose all their power as soon as it's inserted.
