The black ViviCam S1527 Digital Camera from Vivitar is a point-and-shoot camera designed to give you the tools you need for greater manual control over your images. It has a very large 18x zoom, which is the 35mm equivalent of a 28-504mm super-telephoto zoom lens. Its 16.1MP CMOS sensor gives you the high image quality and level of detail needed for editing and making enlarged prints to hang in your home. Its built-in flash and Anti-Shake technology allow you to capture images in low-light, or shooting handheld, so you never miss a shot simply because the light is too low.

With a 2.4" rear LCD display, taking photos and changing menu options is quick and easy. No matter what you're shooting, all of the photos are stored on optional SD and SDHC memory cards up to 32GB and the camera is easily powered by four AA batteries (sold separately). When it comes time to edit and share your photos, you can simply download them via USB 2.0 and use the included Vivitar Experience software CD to get them looking just right.

16.1MP Resolution CMOS Sensor
The camera's 16.1MP resolution sensor keeps your images detailed and clear, even out to the long end of the optical zoom. Having such high resolution images makes it easier for you to crop, edit and print them later on.

3.0" Rear LCD Display
With its 3.0" rear LCD display, you can quickly see and edit camera settings while you shoot - and show them off after shooting.
Anti-Shake Image Stabilization
To keep your high resolution images sharp, the camera's anti-shake technology reduces the blurring effects of camera shake.
Face & Smile Detection Technology

      Comments about Vivitar ViviCam S1527 Digital Camera (Black):

      I was so excited to receive this camera as a Valentine Gift from my boyfriend. But, could not function properly.The camera is really nice as built wise but the pictures come out blurry in low or no light. The camera takes good pictures in well lit light.The video camera functions freezes when you go to turn it off, even if you turn off the camera it still pops up.The zoom 18X does nothing for this camera. And, where you put in the memory card it not easy to pull out after you put in and the batteries cover should slide out with ease and it does not.
