Summary: I've owned several smaller digital cameras, this one is by far the most difficult to operate. The other issue which was something I didn't consider "before" ordering, is the battery. It uses ddd batteries, and I have typically gotten 2 or so hours use from them. So..
Summary: I bought this for my niece for her birthday. I put the card in it and had it ready for her when she opened it. It is NOT anything fancy, but she has taken some good pictures. Some come out a little blurry, but she must have that special touch because she's gotten a lot of non blurry images.
Summary: People on this site hating their various Vivicam cameras never adjusted the picture resolution----ADJUST PICTURE RESOLUTION! Blurred photos come from having a low picture resolution----so the company has to put up with dummies who don't know how to adjust the camera.
Not as bad as the other reviews would lead you to think

Summary: I knew this camera would not be amazing obviously because it was only $30 dollars. But I was buying it for a kid I babysit for and I knew that it wouldnt be used like an actual camera but more like a toy. The color is cute, the buttons are functional and overall the camera wasnt that bad.
Summary: THIS CAMERA DOES NOT TAKE GOOD PICTURE'S, THEY ARE BLURRY EVEN WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING THROUGH THE LENSE TO TAKE PICTURE. I AM VERY DISSATISFIED WITH IT. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA TO ANYONE . SORRY
Summary: First off I didn't purchase this camera from Amazon since I picked it up on sale and needed it really fast. Now I can't get a manual by going to Vivitar's website. Boy these guys are working hard at going out of business.
