Super

Small, light, easy to use, long battery life

Small poor quality screen, Average image quality

The Vivitar Vivicam3105s is quite a small camera and easy to use out of the box for anyone who has had even the briefest of uses of a digital camera. It is small but yet offers a very nice 3.2mp resolution and offers up to 5mp via interpolation (the camera basically guesses what to make up the...

Compact, Robust, Easy to Use

Poor Zoom, Struggles in low light

This was a birthday present from my husband. Despite my initial doubts about the quality (of the camera and the pictures), I have subsequently been very pleased with some of the results I have achieved using this camera. ~~~~~~ Looks: The camera is a silver finish, and made of a tough plastic. It...

Small Lightweight with Long battery life

Poor quality pictures, toy-like, small screen

I got this camera when my other one was left on a bus. It was cheap at only £32 so i thought i had a bargain. I was soon disapointed. The camera is small and lightweight, thus making it ideal to take on a night out or in a small bag. The battery lasts a long time, but this doesn't compensate for...

i must have a different camera to some of the others on here.my only problem is that the battery life is short.i take the batteries out every time its not in use even on holiday so thats a pain.otherwise the quality of the pictures have been excellent.ive had them printed at boots,jessops,klick,etc and all been excellent quality.as i have tendency to leave cameras on buses and in taxis its priced so that you dont have a heart attack.

Got this camera from ebay - it's true what they say - you get what you pay for - Good Points: Nice, very small easy on the eye -Comes with everything you would need such as batteries, usb cable, pouch, strap, cd with photo express & photo explorer(for pc only) & Pc cam driver. - Very easy to use, not too many complicated buttons and instructions to follow. Decent for outdoor simple pictures. Very decent price for a digital/PC camera. Bad Points:Camera is very poor quality, everything from taking the picture to providing very poor lighting, you would need to live in a tv studio to provide enough lighting! Goes through batteries very very quickly, at first i thought there was a fault but soon became accustomed to it turning itself off, should come with a free charger even at the price.

Small light and easy to use

Pitiful amount of photos before memory is full

I bought this camera because I wanted to take some pictures to put some items up for auction on ebay. Its nice and light, and easy to use but the sad thing is the amount of pictures it takes! On top quality, which is five megapixels, you can only take two pictures. This means that it really isnt...

I bought this camera for my young daughter for her birthday and we were VERY disappointed with it. 1) it gets through AAA batteries very quickly AND it won't work properly unless they are almost new. (it never works when you need it). 2) I could not get the software to work with the camera. I gave up and bought a USB card reader instead. 3) I am not at all impressed with the picture quality. This is a 4 Mega pixel camera, but you would never know it (not even close to my Sony 3.3 Mega pixel). I am going to throw this camera away, spend more and buy a new compact camera for all of us to use. This was a bad buy and a waste of money and time!

“Just find a better camera”

Small & cute and SD card slot

The pictures!!!

SImply do not buy this camera. We had it a year and it fails on it's basic premise, that of taking pictures when you press the button. I bought it because my wife wanted a digital camera which when you press the button it simply takes a picture. With many cameras they faff around so much before...

I bought one of these cameras for my wife for Christmas and was very disappointed with the results. I have used many digital cameras and after testing this one out, would consider it one of the poorest. The flash is completely OTT and unless you stand about a mile away from the subject, all...

Without a doubt the worst camera I have ever used. 30 quid is a small price for a camera, but if you are buying a useless camera, then why bother? Maybe, just maybe, the one I have is a dud. Let me tell you about mine. The picture quality is awful. I mean AWFUL. Every picture is a blurred or distorted mess. Remember the first 1mp mobile phone cameras? Using the flash means that you have a white rectangle for a photo, maybe with a flicker of an outline. This is the standard for the Vivitar 3105s. It is a useless camera. Oh yes and the battery life is atrocious.
