Disadvantages Photos are bad quality, the amount of batteries used cost more than the camera.
My parents bought me this camera as a replacement for a Samsung camera which I had broken by getting sand stuck in the lense (clearly I didn't think that trip to the beach through!) But I have to say, the new camera wasn't much better than the broken one.First of all, the pictures came out really blurry and grainy even when I had turned on the flash, anti-shake and it was set on the highest resolution. Taking pictures in dim lighting is near impossible, and even in a well lit room I still did not think the pictures turned out well. Also, unlike most digital cameras, the Vivitar 5024 has no digital zoom, which mean that it was pretty much useless for taking photos at a concert I went to (the main reason why I got the camera).
The camera itself is nothing special; I wouldn't say the deign is particularly sleek but at the same time it's not too bad for a camera that costs £30. However, I was extremely disappointed at the quality of the pictures. Not only this, but because of the fact that you have to turn flash on for every photo (regardless of how good the lighting is), I found that three good quality batteries only lasted for about 20 photos.I know that with a camera this cheap you can't expect professional quality, but I would have hoped for the photos to be half decent at least.
