Vivitar Digital Cameras Have OK Reviews

We assessed average ratings for each camera manufacturer and found that whilst Vivitar has only ok ratings across all cameras, Vivitar has good ratings specifically for its medium megapixel digital cameras.


Display

Average Display Diagonal

The ViviCam S1527 has a pretty standard display diagonal (3 inches) compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that are a comparable age to this camera.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3" screen digital cameras currently available including the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm which has better reviews.

If this digital camera display diagonal is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Nikon D4S ($4,489.00) (3.2" and higher rated), the Leica T ($1,115.77) (3.7" and higher rated), or the Samsung Camera ($30.00) (4.8" and higher rated).

Average Optical Zoom

At 18 times zoom factor, the ViviCam S1527 has a pretty typical optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that have been on the market for more than two years.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 18x optical zoom digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Samsung SAMSUNG WB150F, or the Fujifilm S2980.

If this Vivitar digital camera optical zoom is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Lumix DMC-TZ56 (20x), or the DMC-TZ55 (20x) both from Panasonic which is also higher rated.
