4 out of 5 eggsNice Portable Camcorder

This review is from: Vivitar DVR 508HD Digital Video Recorder (Black)

Pros: Very Affordable little Camcorder that adapts to most conditions well. It has LED lighting to brighten darker conditions. It can auto adapt color balance for outside/inside conditions. USB cord allows for easy uploads to a computer, and MonoAudio/Video cable should allow it to play videos to a TV (untested as of review on this last bit). It uses an SD card to store its Videos and Pictures, though it does not come with one. So, overall on Pros, it follows standards that most people would find easily available, and easy to use/understand.

Cons: 20 fps at highest resolution (HD), 30 fps max on 640x480p and lower. Pictures and videos *darken* toward the edges of the frame, though digital zoom can help aleviate that somewhat. For picture mode, a lot of pictures come out distorted due to the act of "It's very light weight and you have to press a button." The ten second timer is HIGHLY recommended. Videos and pictures will have to be postprocessed due to its algorithm for brightness being on the dark side.

Other Thoughts: Overall: Definitely worth it

-Make sure to hold the Power Button for a while, then it will activate.
-Remaining Battery Meter doesn't seem to be accurate
-Uses 3 AAA batteries (not Included)
-Uses SD card (not Included)

Best for:
Exellent Toy for a Child interested in Movie Making.
Most of today's cell phones could outperform it on video capture/pictures. Though the cell phones could not play straight to a TV.
