Vivitar ViviCam X327
Released January, 2001
The Pros:Included software makes it easy to upload pics and videos directly to Facebook and/or YouTube.
The Cons:LCD display is very hard to see in pretty much any light. Auto mode tends to make things look washed out and overexposed. Very easy to accidentally switch to video mode.
Vivitar's ViviCam X327 is an entry-level digital camera that falls near the top of Vivitar's point-and-shoot lineup, mainly because of its higher resolution of 10.1 megapixels. This camera is compact and very similar to the X024 model, in that it has 3x optical zoom and 8x digital zoom, as well as point-and-shoot features such as digital image stabilization, red-eye reduction, and face and smile recognition.
The LCD screen is large, at 2.7", and unlike the X024 this camera also has a video capture mode at up to 30 frames per second. There are nine different shooting modes, including automatic, and there are also selectable or automatic white balance options. Internal memory capacity is 32MB, but this can be expanded up to 8GB with an SD card. The X327 uses 3 AAA batteries and is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. It comes with a photo organizing software program called PhoTags as well.

Auto mode tends to make things look washed out and overexposed.
Very easy to accidentally switch to video mode.
Pictures always tend to come out with a very blue-heavy colouration.
Battery life is absolutely terrible - 3 AAAs will last no longer than 50 photos.
Autofocus performance is slow with poor results.
