    Comments about ViviCam X028 Digital Camera (Graphite):

    I received this camera as a Christmas present 2 years ago. I attempted to take photos of our children opening their presents, instead I had orange blurry and grainy photos. I changed a few settings and the orange grainy part went away, but the camera cannot seem to focus. All of the photos come out blurry, too bright or just extremely poor quality. I now know not to trust megapixel alone. It was in a blister pack, which sent up a red flag when I opened it. After two years, it still sits in a drawer. It is one of the most worthless cameras I have ever seen. Any cellphone camera can take better photos. I would highly steer away from ANY Vivitar product or anything coming in a blister pack. I wish I could have kept my wife from buying it as it made her feel horrible when the camera was such a poor quality and she felt like she paid a lot for it. Shame on you Vivitar.

      I got this camera last year at christmas time and i will never buy this brand again. all the pictures come out blury, and the camera turns on and off all the time. it says it always has a low battery and the picturs dont come out bright and colorful. I was so diappointed that i wasted my money on it.i rated it one star cause it is required but honestly i would rate it a zero.

          Comments about ViviCam X028 Digital Camera (Graphite):

          I bought this camera for my wife last Christmas. It sports a 12.1 megapixel setting, which I figured to be pretty good...NOT! Even after I made adjustments to the camera, did we not get clear sharp pictures. Resolution was similar to those digital cameras back in the day that were 1.0 megapixel. The blister packaging should have been a red flag. Disappointment to the max!!!
