Vivitar ViviCam 8225
Released May, 2009
The Pros:Very easy to use, can just pick it up and go without instructions. LCD is large and can be viewed in sunlight. Batteries seem to last a long time.
The Cons:Low light photos just come out black. Auto-focus is a little slow, especially if you've zoomed at all. Image stabilization isn't very good, tends to just soften the image quite a bit.
Vivitar's ViviCam 8225 is an entry-level digital camera that falls somewhere in the middle of Vivitar's lineup. It has an 8.1 megapixel total resolution, 2x optical zoom and 8x digital zoom, and a 2.4" LCD screen for taking and viewing pictures.

It has other point-and-shoot features such as red-eye reduction, digital image stabilization and both face and smile detection. This camera has a video capture mode that supports up to 30 frames per second, and has automatic and other preset white balance modes. It has an internal memory capacity of 16MB, and this can be expanded up to 8 gigabytes using an SD card. One advantage over ViviCam's lower models is a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. Other features include automatic ISO selection and 2- or 10-second self-timer.
