Vivitar DVR 850W Digital Camcorder Review

Recently I discovered a company called Vivitar. Vivitar was nice enough to send me over one of their Vivitar DVR 850 Digital Camcorder’s in exchange for my honest opinion. This digital camcorder is compact size and full of great features.  The DVR 850W is waterproof up to 5 meters, 8x Digital Zoom and a beautiful bright 2.4″ LCD making this DVR easy to use. And did I mention it’s available in 8  different color choices!

Best of all it has a rechargeable lithium ion battery and will not only take video but still pictures as well. This is also a budget-friendly camcorder that has underwater and webcam capabilities. Enjoy this camera on land or in the water thanks to the 16.4′ (5m) underwater depth rating. Even if you’re not planning a dive any time soon this camcorder is a good choice for use in the rain or snow. And if you’re looking to share live video online with friends and family the webcam mode has you covered.
