Average Weight

The Vivitar V5119 has a pretty standard weight (180 grams) compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable type and age to this camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 180g cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Q7 ($395.79), and the Q + SMC PENTAX 5-15mm both from Pentax is also worth considering.

Louise Hartgen mentioned “The instruction manual helpfully doesn't tell you, then when we did find out you practically have to be Sampson to slide the compartment open to insert the batteries” in her review.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with a built-in flash and we think the Samsung ZZBPWFR, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS10 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other cameras which also support Wi-Fi to this camera and we think the Canon S110 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Display

Very Small Display Diagonal

Across all the low megapixel digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as this digital camera the display diagonals range from 1" to 3.5". With a display diagonal of only 1.8 inches, the Vivitar V5119 has one of the smaller display diagonals amongst similar spec digital cameras of this age.

We compared all the other 1.8" screen digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the Nikon Coolpix 8800 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might want to consider the Praktica 5000WP (2.5") which is also higher rated.

Average Digital Zoom

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

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4x digital zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Canon Powershot ELPH 300 HS.
