A piece of junk.


If you buy this camera, you will be sorry you bothered.

This camera makes a nice paperweight. Aside from that, don't expect a lot

There are so many things wrong with this camera. All the pictures come out fuzzy (even at 14 megapixels). The video is awful (and they lied and said it could do HD video, but it can't). My old Kodak is only 7 MP, and it beats this thing hands down

Vivitar ViviCam F529 review


The Vivitar ViviCam F529's price might be appealing, but there's nothing else attractive about either the compact camera itself or the photos it takes. Avoid it as you would a leper with head lice.

Cheap ; Small and light

Poor picture quality ; Tacky construction ; Low-res screen ; Useless anti-shake feature ; Numerous usability issues

It's almost impossible to say anything good about the Vivitar ViviCam F529's picture quality. Combine that fact with the usability and build-quality issues, and we just can't recommend this camera. It sucks.

Great little compact camera


Good little camera, easy to carry around for those once in a lifetime moments. The rechargable battery is a great idea saves a fortune on ordinary batteries.

Nice cheap camera


I bought this camera to replace my old one which stopped working 2 weeks before christmas, which is why I opted for a much cheaper camera than my last one. The camera is ok and the picture quality on computer is quite good how ever the delay on taking...
