Vivitar DVR 550
Released December, 2007
The Pros:Compact design easy to keep in a pocket or purse. Included remote is handy and easy to work with. Display is large and bright, makes it easy to line up the shot.
The Cons:Zoom function just results in a blurry picture. Can't zoom during the recording process. Low light is very poor, doesn't pick up much detail.
The Vivitar DVR 550 is a basic video camera built to be portable and sturdy. This is similar to the low-cost Vivitar DVR 528 in general functionality, but has a more compact design with stainless steel body construction to allow it to be easier to fit in a pocket without excessive bulk or concern over breaking it.
