Won't even charge

jason smith, Amazon

  • 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.

Pleasantly Surprised

Justin, Amazon
1 March 2012
  • 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.

Blurry and can not edit photos

Kara Jorgensen, Amazon
6 February 2012
  • 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.

Vivitar Vivicam 7mp Digital Camera

giniaslim, REVIEW STREAM
1 August 2011
  • 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. So I took it upon myself to buy the Vivitar Vivicam 7mp Digital Camera. I don’t have any idea what made me buy this weak camera but did. I regret this purchase from the bottom of my heart.

Not as bad as I first thought

Sherri, Amazon
25 January 2011
  • 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!

  • Pros: Convenient, easy to use, and large LCD screen.
  • Cons: Doesn't hold silent mode setting and macro switch on side... could be a pro.

Huge MISTAKE

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 September 2010
  • 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.
