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.Read more ›
Picture Quality: I'm happy with it. I'm not looking for super HD quality. I just want a good video of my ride. This camera delivers. At 720 resolution the frame rate is only 30, which is fine for many purposes, but when using the bar mount on an ATV the vibration is often too much for the slow frame rate and causes a ripple effect in the picture. Drop back to the 640 mode and it increases the frame rate to 60 and all is good. Still very happy with the image. The wide angle lens gets everything in the picture.
Battery: At 440mAh it's not a huge battery (actually, it's 2 x 220mAh batteries on each side of the lens), but I still get in about 2 hours of video. That works out fine because I ride for about 2 hours and return to camp to grab some food. Charge the camera on the ATV while eating and then back out for another 2 hours. Battery life actually improved after a few charge and full discharge cycles.
My only complaints are: 1) you cannot power it externally. When you plug a USB cable into it, the camera goes into PC camera mode. 2) As I expected, the microphone is inside a sealed case, so it picks up very little other than vibration and contact with the case.

I mounted it to my Motocycle helmet (mount included) and got movie quality riding video through the badlands, Mount Rushmore, Devils Tower etc... also I went on vacation in Cabo and got killer under water video of the local fish and coral reefs! (Waterproof housing also included) for around 50 bucks its worth every cent!
For the money, I couldn't have gotten a better camera! Shoots video in 1080p/30fps,720p/30fps,720p/60fps. Great quality video and audio. Both the camera and WP housing have tripod mount female threads so no more using that weird clip on adapter. After filming some video and comparing to go pro, I would say this camera in 720/60 shoots as well as the goPro. I also wear glasses for reading, so I can't tell that great a difference between 720 and 1080, anyway. You're not going to get Hollywood quality video from any camera under $800 so save your money and buy the Vivitar DVR786HD Action Camera! If you want a great camera at a good price, this is the one for you! Will try to post videos in a few days!

I got 2 of the 787HD camcorder kits in pink. For the price you get a decent action camera and a nice selection of mounting accessories. The waterproof case looks great. Read morePublished 19 days ago by SamFudge
