This review is from: Vivitar Vivicam X035 ( 10 MP,2.2 -inch LCD ) (Camera)
This is my third Vivitar camera and, alas, like the other two, it consumes batteries in an unacceptable way. Well under 100 pictures did for a set of alcalines. This happened three times and with different makes of battery.
Very few products take loose batteries. I tried rechargibles and less than 50 pictures were produced. I am tempted to think that it's the power-up and power-down which exhausts the power.
Finally, as noted by another reviewer some pictures come out blurred and those taken with poorish light don't get "rescued" in the way of most other cameras.
I once took a camera to the Vivitar head office - they were unable / unwilling to help me nor to note my observations.
