Image: Vivitar Vivicam GiveawayToday's Giveaway is a Vivitar Vivicam 8025 digital camera - sponsored by Vivitar.com - We make it easy! - with digital cameras, DVR's and accessories.

We were excited to receive this camera to Image: Vivitar Vivicam 8025 preview screen test, as we really needed a new updated one. I was just saying to Rob, if I am going to be taking all these pictures for the blog, I am going to need a new camera. And thanks to Vivitar, my wish was granted!

Image: Family BBQI took the camera to a family BBQ, to snap some pics. Everyone commented on how much they liked my new little camera. One thing my sister-in-law pointed out when she saw it, was that she would be lost without the little viewfinder on older cameras.

She is so used to putting up the camera to her face to look through, and I have to admit I looked for the little viewfinder when I first opened the camera. However, we both admitted the large 2/4" preview screen made it much easier to frame a picture. We were all really impressed with the quality of the pics! (Click on the picture to see it larger)

Vivitar Vivicam 8025 frontThe best thing about this camera is just how simple it is to use. With all the controls on the touch screen, you can zoom in and out (8x digital) with ease, the face and smile detection help to set up your shot and I love that to charge the lithium battery, all you have to do is plug the camera into the wall. Simple is good!

USB cord and chargerThe rechargeable battery life seemed good, unlike my previous camera that was dying after 3-5 pictures! You do need to add your own memory card, up to 8GB.

Fortunately, we had some laying around, so we popped one in and were snapping pictures all over the place. The last few pictures I've taken for recent reviews and giveaways were taken with the Vivitar Vivicam 8025 digital camera.

Uploading the pictures and videos we took was a breeze, though the short USB cord, means you can't lay the camera down any further than the top of your hard drive while uploading.

I had to try out the movie mode for you, and so I present Buddy doing his 'Happy Dog' on the waterbed for your enjoyment! We are not experienced with video cams, so yes, this is pretty amateurish. LOL

The new Vivitar Vivicam 8025 is an 8.1 megapixel HD camera that retails for $99. It has a 2.4" preview screen, 8X digital zoom, resolution of 3264 x 2448 and a touch screen, making it easy to use and affordable to buy. Plus, it comes in a variety of vibrant colors to match any personality: Pink, red, teal, navy, yellow, gray and black.

Sorry this giveaway has ended

    I found this giveaway at online-sweepstakes.com. I would love to try vivitar. I have only used Kodak

  41. After visiting the Vivitar website the ViviCam T328 3.0 Inch Screen will make capturing candid shots of my 3 kids so much easier, because you can see so much more than some other cameras that only have a 2 inch screen. Also, the antishake feature will make picture taking so fun because I won't have to worry if I slightly move the camera when I hit the shutter button, it makes picture taking stress free which equals more fun!
