A replacement to the disposable camera

AdvantagesSmall, light, easy to use, long battery life

DisadvantagesSmall 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 rest of the image with). It has many features which include, webcam and video as well as the standard expected options. This was a replacement for my old ..." Read review

Basic Features for a Basic Price Review with images

AdvantagesCompact, Robust, Easy to Use

DisadvantagesPoor 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 is very light, and small enough to fit in your jeans pocket, even in the case (which is included). Dimensions are 9 x 5.6 x 2.4, and quoted weight is ..." Read review

Poor camera, not worth the money

Advantages Small Lightweight with Long battery life

Disadvantages 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 the quality of the pictures which is simply AWFUL. Pictures are the main purpose of a camera, yet the screen was very very small, making it hard to view ..." Read review

Just about ok

AdvantagesSmall light and easy to use

DisadvantagesPitiful 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 worth taking out of the house on days out because of course you need to take many more pictures than that at say, a day out at the seaside, particularly if ..."

Quick review of Vivitar ViviCam 3105s

"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!

Quick review of Vivitar ViviCam 3105s

"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.

White-out problems and poor auto-focus

Advantagesprice, small and light

Disadvantagesflash white-out, poor auto-focus, non-flash white out.

"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 detail is replaced with white. Blanching was strangely also a problem with non-flash photos. We went to a park last week during a very dull day, and somehow ..." Read review
