11 Reasons Against

Vivitar Digital Cameras Only Have Unexceptional Reviews

Based on 374 owner and expert reviews, Vivitar has unexceptional ratings for its digital cameras. However, Vivitar has ok ratings for its compact cameras compared to compact cameras made by other brands.

Quite Small Display Diagonal

The average display diagonal of compact cameras that are a comparable age to the V5119 is 2.8", and the display diagonals range from 1" to 4.8". At only 1.8 inches, the Vivitar V5119 has a very small display diagonal compared to most of the other compact cameras that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 1.8" screen digital cameras currently available including the Nikon Coolpix 8800[plb_1640989_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a larger display diagonal then you might also want to consider the Minox DCC 14.0[plb_2503314_price] (2"), or the Ingo VIC002O[plb_2322518_price] (2.4").

4 Other reasons to consider the Vivitar V5119

Released Over Three Years Ago

Average Digital Zoom

With a digital zoom of 4 times zoom factor, the Vivitar V5119 has a fairly standard digital zoom compared to most of the other cameras that are a similar age to the V5119.

We compared all the other 4x digital zoom digital cameras to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon IXUS 230 HS[plb_1504252_price], and the Panasonic DMC-TZ30[plb_1847857_price] is also worth considering.

If this camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to look at the Samsung WB350F[plb_2134241_price] (5x and higher rated), or the Kodak Pixpro FZ41[plb_3227932_price] (6x and higher rated).
