Summary: This was such a waste of money for me, I wanted a good quality camera for my prom, in the end i had to borrow someones phone as that took better quality photos. P.S to take good photos with this camera, only take pictures of close objects, and stay very still for 2-3 hours while the picture processes -really disappointing
Summary: If you want a camera that works first time and gives you no grief .......buy something else . I bought one for my daughters birthday in June which worked for about a day .i phoned the vivitar customer service line and spent about 20 mins on hold and 15 mins trying to give my address to some guy who could hardly speak English let alone understand it .After weeks without the promised replacement i phoned again ,only to be told they had no record of my correspondence...
Summary: You can take a decent photo if you use a stand and the light is excellent, otherwise you get a blurred dark image vaguely resembling the object you took a picture of. Worst of all the videos it takes have NO SOUND!!! Why? The technology for recording digital sound has been around for SO LONG. It isn't broken it's just not a feature!?!? I wonder whether anyone who works for the company actually owns or even tested the product...
Summary: The camera certainly LOOKS okay... but if, like me, you follow the suggestions about which memory card to buy with it (as recommended on this Amazon page) you'll get nowhere. Because, according to Vivitar, the camera won't recognise a 8GB card and will only work with a 2GB or 4GB one. All I got was the on-screen message "load an SD memory card" - even though I had done. So, buy a smaller memery card than the one recommended here. Also, don't have any other problems.
Summary: If you're looking for a good wee camera - don't buy this one. Bought this for a Christmas present for my sister and both her and I were very very disappointed with it. Terrible quality of pics, even with flash on pics where dark and grainy and very blurry. Tried all modes and settings, nothing worked, think she ended up giving it to her one-year-old kid to play with. Disapppointed!
Summary: bought this for son for christmas, very disapointed, nice look, but unclear pictures, unreliable flash and annoyingly, everytime camera is switched on / off / betweeen modes, flash reverts to 'off' was drawn in by 10m pix and li on battery - a mistake! wish we'd spent £20 quid more and got far better camera! will look into returning, but thats where the convenience of using amazon (or any internet shopping) runs out.
Vivitar Vivicam X225: Den sämsta tekniken jag någonsin stött på
20 July 2011
Excerpt: Vivitar Vivicam x225 Denna kamera fick jag som en "jag-har-saknat-dig-present" av min bästa kompis efter att hon kommit hem ifrån en längre resa till England. Självklart blev jag överlycklig över att få en kamera, och inte minst blev jag väldigt glad över att hon hade valt den kameran som butikspersonalen hade rekommenderat. Tyvärr visar det sig att denna kamera inte alls var så bra som personalen hade lovat, tyvärr är den helt oduglig.
Pros: Fin färg, snygg design, lätt att förstå
Cons: Det går inte att se vad bilderna föreställer, kvalitén, plastig, svår navigerad
