Vivitar 52mm Close Up + 10 Filter

I paid $10 for this filter so I wasn't expecting much. I got it because I wanted to try digitizing negatives on a light table. For that purpose it works, though not nearly as well as a nice film scanner (which costs hundreds more). It requires some...

Vivtar 7mm f/3.5 Series 1 Manual Focus Fisheye Lens for Nikon Digital SLR...

I bought this fisheye to use with an Nikon D300 . I've being using this lens for just a week now and the pictures show good quality so far. I didn't try it in a great variety of light situations but I'll update this review when I try it harder. The...

Telephoto 100mm f/3.5 Macro Manual Focus Lens for Nikon AI

This lens is very difficult to review. There is a very big difference between the optics and buildings. Of course its a cheap lens, but as a "real macro-freak" normally I am used to better lenses. I have 6 top-macros from Sigma, Tamron and Canon and...

Wide Angle & Telephoto lens for SANYO Xacti VPC-HD1000 VPC-HD2000 VPC-HD1010

These are good adapters to use on video cameras. Easy to put on and came with extra rings so that they could fit on a variety of video camera lenses.

Vivitar 28 - 210 / 3,5 - 5,6

I have used this lens on a Canon EOS film camera before using it on a 20D Canon system. It is a weighty lens but with a battery grip it turns out to be well balanced. The push/pull zoom is useful, easy and fast while minimal care has to be exercised...

Vivitar Metal Macro Automatic Extension Tube Set of 3 for Canon EOS (13mm...

I haven't had a chance to use these yet, but they fit well and snugly, and electronic info is transmitted through any combination of the tubes.

Vivitar 19 - 35 / 3,5-4,5 Series 1

I bought this after reading a recommendation and was pretty skeptical. However, after getting it I am amazed at how good the quality is. Zooming in to 100%, the image is surprisingly sharp and pretty well saturated, even at edges and in the corners. ...

Vivitar Macro Extension Tube Set for Sony Alpha SLR Cameras (13mm, 21mm & 31mm)

All three worked well with my Sony a200 with Sigma 150mm macro and Sony 30mm macro. No problems in fitting or af. But I have'nt tested them enough yet.

Already had some good result good lens for money bit tricky with getting your settings right with exposure practice and patience needed.

Vivitar 62" Tripod

Works great with my Camcorder. The tilt and pans are smooth without any slack. I also like the front and side levels witch I didn't see on others. With all the adjustment knobs snug it is sturdy enough. The only down side I find is the quick release is...

Vivitar 3-Pack Microfiber Cleaning Cloth

I purchased these because the price seemed right. Well, you get what you pay for. It is the roughest and thinnest microfiber cloth I have ever seen. Not really sure I trust then with my glasses or camera. Not worth sending back.

Vivitar 8 mm f / 3.5 IF MC Fisheye Lens for Canon - EOS 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D...

The lens is heavy,but looks good.One thing I was disappointed with was you can't focus any subject in or out,all you have is aperture movement.But overall price wise good value for money.

Vivitar 2X for Minolta MD & MC

This is an OK accessory; but, not a great one. It does extend the range on Canon lenses; however, it does not autofocus well. When shooting stationary targets I can manually focus well enough; but, cannot, rely on auto-focus when using it. It's a handy...

Vivitar Series-1 4-Element 2x Tele Converter, Pentax Autofocus Mount

Its a product just for fun. The auto focus is disable, therefore you will have to do a Manual Focus mode. A little bit of an inconveience.

Vivitar 100 - 400 / 4,5 - 6,7

I bought this to shoot airshows and kids' outdoor sports (soccer, baseball, football), originally on a film body but the last few years on a DX digital body. For those uses it is great, considering I paid so little for it. However the autofocus is...

Vivitar 650-1300mm f/8-16 SERIES 1 Telephoto Zoom Lens + Vivitar Tripod...

I could not get the remote to work. I found one with a wire that works. But the junky tripod was worth something.

Vivitar 500mm f/6.3 Series 1 Multi-Coated Mirror Lens for Canon EOS Rebel XSi...

Other reviews have pointed out the limits. My 2-cents is, once you get used to 'all manual' operation, the camera is great for long distance shots of closely grouped subjects. I'm an amateur, really only taking photos on vacations, wildlife trips,...
