Pros: The software that is included is easy to use and upload pics to facebook and youtube BUT WITH NO SOUND. So if you love pixilated fuzzy pics and videos with no sound this is your camera.
Cons: The pic quality is terrible. The thing that really pisses me off is the fake microphone on top of the camera. This is very misleading because it doesn't record any sound when you are making a video.
Summary: Worst camera I've ever owned. My sister is photographer so I know a little bit about a good photo. This camera is INCAPABLE of taking even one good photo. Sorry I ever purchased it. Getting rid of it reguardless if I can return it at the store. The only nice part about this camera is the color. It's a pretty blue. A.
Summary: Is it worse to have spent a bunch of cash on this camera, or to have picked it from a catalog of items as an award for 20 years of service at my company? For 10.1MP, this future landfill resident was my gift for two decades of hard work, and I'm mad as hell. The heartbreaker of it all, it has all the basic necessary features -- simple photo editing/deleting, optical zoom, loads of customizable functions for various photo conditions, video capture, antishake, red-eye...
Summary: Evidently some genius at Vivitar thought that "quality" was an optional component in a camera. Every aspect of this gizmo is sub-par, from the materials used to create it to the interface. Thankfully I was given this as a gift. I only tried it out because my 2 main cameras broke (tough month) and I thought it could serve as a back-up while I got one of them repaired. I will have no remorse what-so-ever trying to sell it at a pawn shop.
Summary: 4 months later, it's no longer a camera; it's a paperweight that lights up and makes noises every now and then. The battery life, even with new batteries, is now about 10 shots. It also randomly decides to rapidly palette-swap the LCD screen to make it look like you're high on LSD once in a while. Sure, the image quality was decent, but only while the thing lasted.
