Vivitar Vivicam 5015
Released January, 2010
The Pros:Easy enough for young kids to pick up and start using right away. Comes in bright colors that are eye-catching and cute. Works with standard SD/SDHC cards that are easy to find.
The Cons:Made a bit flimsy, won't last more than a year. Difficult to get support on the product from the manufacturer. Batteries get drained very quickly and just don't last.

It hosts a relatively weak 5.1MP sensor for capturing 2592x1944 JPEG images, and VGA clips at 15fps—which unfortunately is so low it may cause blurs and other unwanted side effects. Regardless, the device also hosts a 1.5” display, microSD expansion up to 8GB, and 8MB of internal memory, which is enough to support up to perhaps 20 or 30 images max. Most reviewers agree that the Vivitar Vivicam 5015 is only suitable for children, as its weak performance would likely infuriate an adult.
