If you're looking for a camera around this price, forget about vivitar (****** camera's anyway) and see this post for the far superior Canon A460.

I dont appreciate you falsely advertising a 5megapixel camera as being better than an 8.2 megapixel on my thread.

the canon's a far better camera with a far better lense vivitar use mediocre lenses at best, you can have a 20 megapixel camera but if it has a bad lense you'll get bad pictures

"falsely advertising"; if you knew anything about camera's, then you would know that lens, sensor and processor quality are far more important for picture quality than measly MP.
So many brands are throwing MP's at consumers, and neglecting these other, far more important aspects of a decent camera. It's damned annoying.

Try finding a good review for the Vivitar, then try finding a bad review for the Canon A460.

The Canon A460 is a far superior camera, in every aspect.

Those Alkaline thingies are better than Li-ion! - damn I thought it was the other way round. I hate to think how much electricity I've wasted recharging my camera battery instead of just buying some more and thowing the old ones away. ;-)

A simple "Vivitar aren't the best - you might want to consider this alternative....."
would do, instead of people going off the deep end!

Oh and this is from Steve's Digicams on the A460 -

" The only negative I found with this camera was the incredibly slow flash recharge time, which is caused by the use of AA batteries."
and they were using " 2700 mAh rechargeables"

is rather over the top as well this site is for bargains and if some item is rubbish whoever cheap it is it's not a bargain!

The Li-ion vs AA is a whole different debate! Both have their pro's and con's.

For example: The battery in the Canon IXUS 70 (best selling compact camera in Europe for 2007) hold's a charge of 760mAh, the Canon A460 can hold two AA batteries. If using high-capacity rechargables, these can store 2700mAh+ each, giving 5400mAh. I'm guessing batteries holding 5400mAh would last longer than a batery holding 760mAh.

Also, every high street in the world will have a shop that sells AA batteries, try finding a new li-ion battery when you run out of charge and don't have your charger.

The main benefit of having a li-ion battery is size, and camera's that use these batteries can be made smaller.

Also, I'll bet that the Canon A460 will last longer on a set of standard alkaline batteries than the vivitar does on a fully charged battery. Due to having far more power efficient components.

Fair point, but does Steve review ANY Vivitar camera's?
No.
Why?
Because he'd be wasting his time and knowledge of camera's.

If he did, boy would they get a bashing!

The quote says the "only negative" (camera joke for you there) which is pretty positive in my view. I was just trying to illustrate a point, that not everything is black and white when choosing a camera.
Also it would be nicer to politely suggest an alternate without going over the top.

Now to prove a point that you can pick a hole in anyone's post. -

Those Leica cameras must be useless, as Steve's Digicams don't review any of those either (over-priced rubbish probably!)

There is a myth about magapixels? Do tell - are they bigger or smaller than Megapixels? ;-)

Edit - final bit of defence for this post. Comparing the Vivitar to the A460
It's smaller, lighter, bigger screen, rechargeable, more megapixels (if you do a lot of heavy cropping), anti-shake and pictbridge enabled. It falls down on optical zoom, not taking AA's(?) or SDHC cards and the fact it's not a Canon (optics/electronics etc.).
It's horses for courses - for some people just the physical size will swing it, others wouldn't consider the Vivitar just because of the name. Offer alternatives but please let people decide on what is important to them.
Personally - at the relative prices I'd go for the brick (A460) as I've already got a rapid charger (and you will need a rapid one) and some AA's knocking around. But if I had to buy them as well, I'd go for the Vivitar and pick up a spare np-40 generic battery for a fiver
