Vivitar DVR 810HD
Released March, 2009
The Pros:In sunlit conditions the color looks great. Works with standard AAA batteries that are easy to replace. Battery power lasts a long time.
The Cons:Software is cumbersome and slow, doesn't seem to work right. Controls are awkward and unresponsive, need to be patient with it. No external mic input and the mic picks up a lot of ambient noise.
The Vivitar DVR 810HD is a low cost compact video camera. This is similar to the Vivitar DVR 830XHD, but lacks an HDMI interface and doesn't use optical zooming. This unit has a higher resolution 1280x720 mode at 20fps, but they are both capable of 640x480 resolution at 30fps.
