I bought 2 of the Vivitar NV cameras, I bought the 1st one for a gift, when she opened it the screen was badly scratched and it was made out of cheap plastic. We put batteries in it and went into a dark room to see if the cheap video cameras night vision worked. To our surprise it worked great, she kept the camera and I went back on Amazon to buy myself one. I am not joking - mine was scratched on the screen as well. Do we care... no. For under $40 it is a steal (scratches and all). I bought 2 night vision lights (that doubled the cost of the camera)and I can see forever. The picture quality is low but considering the price who would expect more.

I thought the video was sub par. Pay more and get higher resolution. Also, I think the video processor is margin as the video gets choppy when panning the camera. I'll put it on Ebay and get something higher in quality. Also, it touts that it's water proof. It's not-it depends on it being in a water proof bag that wasn't included in my order.

I bought this camara for my wifes birthday present. I had high hopes that this camara would function well, as we are involved in paranormal research. The first thing I dislike about this product is that the audio in any louder than normal situation is horrible. Sounds like there are fighter jets taking off when I was playing back the video. The night vision is substandard, even with an extra IR light. This camara would be great for a young child who is trying to record a sleep over, unless they get a little loud in there playing. The automatic night vision mode is kind of a pain in the butt. When you are trying to record say, a concert. It kicks into night mode and ruins the whole video. I would strictly say that you get what you pay for. If you are trying to use this for anything other than recording an active ant hill. Than I would not waste your money.

The recording certainly works. But there is one critical flaw: During night vision mode, the IR LEDs reflect and I got 2 nasty "ring effect" in the video, much like halos. Also I wish there was a manual option to turn the night vision on or off. It can activate at invonvenient times so your video suddenly becomes monochrome and back again. Of course the halos from the LEDs that bleed into the image is the most unacceptable part of the device.

nice ans small but does not come with a memory card that is required to use the item as a camera or as a camcorder. Dont be fooled by the cheap price once you add the memory card you could have gotten one with it probably nicer or cheaper too. I hate buying a product and then you have to uy something else for it to work!!! Sent it back!!!

Lousy picture and audio quality. Not a well made video recorder, ended up throwing it in the trash.
