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. She loves it. Perfect for a kid's starter camera.
Summary: Batteries don't last very long, but my biggest complaint is that 9 out of 10 pics are blurry. At first I thought it was just my 5 year old daughter's fault, but after playing with it, changing settings etc...I found it hard to take a clear picture. Another gripe is that every time you turn it on, it defaults to flash off...which makes no sense. Why not flash auto? It must be to preserve the already lame battery life?
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. Though it does seem, even with the previous version, that the anti-shake actually makes the photos more blurred!
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. The one thing I have to say though is that the pictures it takes are of very poor quality. They are kind of blurry and I highly doubt that the pix elation is around 10.
