If you are interested in a low-cost, versatile sports camera to record video, look elsewhere.

As an avid cyclist, I thought it would be great to film some of my bike rides. However, I had no plan of spending big bucks on a GoPro or something similar.

At a first glance, the specs on this Vivitar camera seemed more than adequate. Not the greatest resolution and/or frame rate, but I'm not looking to make professional quality recordings. It comes with a waterproof case and versatile mounting hardware. It will take up to a 32GB SD card, which can hold a considerable amount of video footage. But it's what they don't tell you in the specs or manual that make this camera a big disappointment.

When you record video with the camera, it creates a new file every 5 minutes (?!?) rather than creating one continuous file for all your footage. The quality of the video footage meets my expectations, although it does not work well in low light. It'd definitely a 'daylight only' camera. Yet, the most disappointing thing about capturing video on this camera is the battery life. While recording video, the LCD display remains on the entire time. It never turns off or enters any kind of 'sleep' mode to save battery power. Bottom line.....you get a whopping 30 minutes of footage before the camera shuts down (Mfr. specs say nothing about expected battery life when recording video). It's hardly worth putting a 32GB SD card in a camera like this when the battery will be long dead before you even populate a few Gigs.

So once again, don't buy this camera as a low-cost alternative to any of the name brand sports cameras. Read the specs carefully on any similarly priced product, and if anything is too vague or conveniently missing, try contacting the manufacturer or just skip that produce altogether.

The first thing you notice is that this camera is a whole lot smaller than you thought it was going to be. Without the waterproof case it measures a diminutive 2.75 inches wide, and the 2 inch viewing screen covers almost the entire back of the camera.

The camera ships without a memory card, so when you buy one I highly recommend at least a Class 10 Micro SD card. Any HD video camera deserves it. A slower card may not record HD video quick enough to prevent problems such as having your recording stop before you're ready or, worst of all, a slow card might result in data corruption and a camera lock-up. This could be the source of some bad reviews that mention the camera freezing up. Also, you ought to respect the Busy light and do not ask the camera to do anything else while it's saving a file. Just to be safe, there is a tiny reset button on the bottom of the camera. Hope you never have to use it, but it's a better choice than waiting for the battery to expire. So far, I've recorded about 90 minutes of video and plenty of still pictures without a glitch.

Focus range is 120 cm (5 inches) to infinity, but in a pinch you can go in a whole lot closer, up to a half inch with useful results. The 4x zoom is digital, so it will always reduce detail if you use it. Get closer if you can, but if not, you can always crop the pictures when you get home. As for video, as soon as you zoom in you are no longer using 720 HD. My advice: Unless you have a compelling reason, I'd say to keep the camera set at highest resolution for both stills and video, and skip the zoom. For video you actually have two good choices: 720p HD at 30 frames per second, or in case you need to see sharper motion, there is also VGA at 60 fps.
