Awesome camera


I'd buy it again in hearbeat even at the regular price. It puts my sister's Kodak Easyshare to shame on pic quality and available features.

More features than I can possibly use. I have not found an environment that this camera doesn't have a setting for. The rechargeable battery took nearly 300 pics and I used the viewer for hours in the hotel the night after and still the battery was...

The manual is horrible. Admittedly, you could write a 300 page book on how to use all the features, but this pathetic manual has NO details about the setting at all

I'd Save Up for a Better Camera


My Kodak Easy Share camera is a 6+ megapixel and takes better photos, in my opinion. The color is much better and it does action photos without any issue. The Kodak also does much much better on videos. I have gone back to using my Kodak and only use...

Inexpensive is the big plus. I also haven't had any issues with any of my memory cards, high capacity or not. It also came with a thin fabric case, which is better than nothing. Daytime photos turn out fine if there's not much action

Not worth a penny if you need to take photos or videos at night, or if you need an "action" setting. Tried to use this to record video at night with lighting, and there is absolutely no setting, manual or not, that makes the video worth recording

Amazing picture quality. Takes amazing pictures. Sun light, indoor light, dim light, it's all perfect. I couldn't be happier. And I bought it for $89.00!! Newegg rocks. Battery life is amazing. It keeps going and going and going. I took maybe 10...

Um I had an issue taking pictures of fireworks. There isn't a setting for it in the "Scene" menu. I'm sure there is a way, but you'd have to manually do it

Superb Image Quality


I bought this camera when it was on sale for $99. This camera is worth every penny. The 12 mp gives you very detailed images. This camera takes just as good of a picture than my friend's $8oo Canon Rebel XTi, and weighs a tenth of that thing. So glad I...

A bit bulky but excellent quality


For the price you can't go wrong witht his camera. It has a decent amount of features, not nearly as many as it's major brand cometition but then their 12MP cameras are alot more expensive. If you are looking for a new ultra thin camera this isn't it,...

Excellent 12 MP quality, Many features, good price

A little thicker than many cameras, no viewfinder

GREAT PRICE! Works like a digicam should...what more do you need?


I bought this during the $99 sale but even at the current price it's nothing when you consider it's a 12 megapixel camera! My last digicam only took 4 MP photos but it was $150 bucks! I see other people have complained about the lag between photos, but...

The camera comes with accessories I actually use (case, computer connector, a/v) and it doesn't need batteries! The battery life is great as well. Did I mention great picture quality? I can see every dirty spot on my rug

it's no longer $99

Good for the price


Great resolution for the price if more megapixels (MP) is what you are after...I set it to low res just because I don't need to fill up my hard-drive with "every day" photos. However when snapping a high-res shot I know I want to keep I can do so...

Excellent battery life, and great resolution for the price ; I love the low-light photo quality (no flash) and the image stabilization feature works great too ; It recognized my 8GB SD card without any hastles

Flash photo quality is a bit sub-par in my opinion, and the camera takes a looooong time to snap a picture so I wouldn't recommend it for action photos at all. (e.g. Don't use it for "junior's" baseball games ;) ; It is also a bit bulier than other...

OK For The Price


It's not a Canon, but it's no pile of junk. It would make a great back up for vacations, trips, or keeping in your car just in case.

Good quality on pitchers. Holds a nice charge. Price was right when it was on the $99 sale

A little slow on the snap. Not a deal breaker by no means though

Vivitar ViviCam T25 Silver 12 MP 2.5" LCD 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera


The file size of the pictures is not as high as I thought it would be. Also after getting this camera, paying for the upgraded version of picasa/flikr is not a bad idea. You can store the full size images online, and not leave them taking up half your...

Great high quality pics with this camera

Takes a long time to take another picture after taking one. Takes a while to figure out all the settings
