Strengths:    None.

Weaknesses:    Every picture I take comes out blurry.

Bottom Line:   
I thought it was just me until I read these other reviews. No matter what I do, I've tried every setting and the pictures still look blurry. Picture quality is extremely poor for this camera. I've taken better pictures with my phone.

Weaknesses:    Photos: Blurry
Videos: Blurry
What else is there to say


Bottom Line:   
13 yr old daughter got this "paperweight" as a Christmas gift from her aunt. It never took good pics. Always blurry, video blurry. I had done photograph for college publications and tried my hand at it and I got the same useless pics. Absolutely disappointment for my daughter. Finally bought her a Nikon Coolpix S4300 for her birthday this month. Based on the price mentioned above (about $70) it was well worth spending about $35 more for a quality camera. Now she is ecstatic with her new Coolpix and those photos are focused, if not amazing. Yes it's 14 MP but my 5 MP camera took better pics than the Vivitar 10 MP.
Don't disappoint a loved one by purchasing this camera. But if you want a good "paperweight" for yourself, as one photo repair shop mentioned, then this Vivitar is for you. Sad to see them put out such a poor quality product.

Strengths:    lightweight, nice model color (her favorite--teal)

Weaknesses:    poor quality, sucks battery life very quickly, picture quality was lousy

Bottom Line:   
I bought this camera for my daughter's 11th birthday. She used it for 6 weeks and then it stopped functioning. The display panel got garbled and made the camera useless! Before that, the picture quality, while appearing good on the display, was inferior upon upload. The pictures are terrible, blurry, washed out with flash, off color and just lousy! I was expecting a lot more for 10.1 MP and a regular retail price of $69.99. Don't even think about buying this camera!

Strengths:    Leight weight. Nice color.

Weaknesses:    Picture quality (worst ive seen)
No sound in videos (veyr little use for that feature w/o the sound)
Very hard to navigate.


Bottom Line:   
I recieved this camera as a gift for a christmas. Im still in school, so the point of this camera was to take pictures of my friends and me during our final year together. Unfortunately, I cant do that with this camera. The picture quality is horrible. Its no longer fun to take a picture a 10th time because the first 9 times didnt come out well, even when the camera was sitting flat. Also, it was very hard to navigate, the controls were very messy/confusing.
I also planned to use this camera for taking videos, but without the ability to record sound, theres really no point. A useless feature...
Do not buy this camera and do not be tempted to purchase it for its low price. It was originally 130.00 dollars, but I got it for 40.00....hmmm, I wonder why?....Biggest waste of 40.00 dollars
