Summary: a nice camera for kids to learn on or young adults, who may damage it by not being careful. for the price, it takes decent pictures, and is pretty easy to use. for the price, if it gets broken....so what?
Summary: Can't even get the thing to charge up- bought an even cheaper model for our other daughter, and yes it took terrible picts and had a horrible display but it is all hers to drop and toss- of course the younger sister wanted one too ( 3 hrs old) shipping it back.
Summary: I was not expecting much with this camera, but for under $50 I am VERY pleased. It has a decent amount of features for a camera this inexpensive. It is a lightweight and small pocket size. Pics have been crisp in various light settings and with different action modes. Definately worth a shot. Better value than my previous overpriced Samsung.
Summary: I am not happy with this camera - Taking clear pictures seems impossible. I have set the anti shake setting on and also to take multiple pictures in the hopes that 1 is ok. Also I can not edit the photos even after selecting to unlock all the pictures in the cameras menu. If there is a way to do it is not intuitive. This camera seems simple and easy to use but it has been headaches and frustrations.
Excerpt: This was a hurry purchase because my daughter was having a party and we needed a quick camera that would allow us to take a few pictures. My regular camera was at my parents house and I didn’t have the time to go and pick it up.
Summary: I recently dropped my Kodak EasyShare V1253...and I LOVED that camera, which was a bit more expensive than this Vivitar. I was buying a new camera with angst that I even had to, so nothing looked good to me except an exact replica of the camera I just broke. But, I needed a camera pronto, and didn't have the money to buy a higher end camera again. I searched online and read reviews, and was not settled about this camera after reading what folks were saying... not at all!
Summary: I bought this after my kodak broke and I needed something small that would fit in my pocket. I was fooled by the 10.1 MP and anti shake feature. This camera is horrible and takes horrible pictures, most were blurred and the others came out with a red tint. I read the directions and went through the settings to make sure I had it set correctly. This did not help at all. I will be returning it in the morning.
