Bought this as a backup for my Canon;
Frustrating to use: touch screen is difficult -- need to tap icons multiple times before they register; not easy to target selection, keep hitting the item above or below; sliding to scroll thru selections is iffy. Screen is useless in sunlight, difficult to see what you're aiming at.
Also - images seemed to have a blue cast to them, altho I have not yet looked at them on the computer.
Technology is intriguing but not there yet.
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND
Buyers be wary- the Vivitar ViviCam F-series may look and sound great, especially for the price, but you'd be better off just using your phone's built-in camera, even if it's only VGA, or saving up for something decent. These cameras are sleek, compact, and tiny, plus come in an array of neat colors, but looks are deceiving. The user interface is frustrating and the pictures are TERRIBLE. I have never been so disappointed with a camera, and I've been through a lot of them. The camera doesn't focus, has slow reaction speeds, and the pictures ALWAYS come out with terrible contrast & color and very, very grainy- even in bright sunlight. Don't bother wasting your time or money on these cameras.
I needed a good but relatively inexpensive point and shoot camera. I saw this advertised on sale at my local Target, so I purchased one. I hate to say it but this camera is awful. It looks and feels cheap and the picture quality is horrible. I played around with the ISO and pixel settings but every picture I took was grainy and of poor quality. I packaged it back up and am returning it asap for something better, even if I have to pay more.
