Great Action Cam for the Money

Bough this camera before a trip to capture some pictures of the family in the water. If you are running the screen a lot it east into the battery life, but you can tweak the settings to reduce the time the screen stays on and that helps. Works with standard GoPro accessories so it mated up with accessories purchased at another retailer with no problem. Video and picture quality is very good.I would recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Good camera, battery not so much.
Good camera, battery not so much.Posted .
Bought the camera and I am happy with it except the battery has NO LIFE. Battery is dated 09-2017 so it's OLD and probably no good. I bought the camera two months ago. I would have just bought a new battery for it but can't find one that matches it anywhere on the web. VIVITAR if you are reading this and want a better rating and keep a customer you need to make this right. Two new replacement batteries that are not out of date would be nice.No, I would not recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

You get what you pay for. Get a GoPro instead.

I tried to give this one a chance, the 4K was appealing, so was the phone control. It has so many issues, though -- it won't keep a connection to your phone for more than a few minutes, I couldn't record videos for more than 6 seconds for whatever reason, the battery life was terrible, the list goes on. I exchanged for a GoPro HERO Black and I am not looking back. The quality difference is DRAMATIC.No, I would not recommend this to a friendSorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Don't buy into the people saying the battery doesn't last on this thing, or the picture quality is horrible, or its hard to use. All that is nonsense. For the $40 I paid for this I did not expect $500 GoPro quality and neither should you. Having said that this is still a great camera for someone like me just getting into using action cameras. It has a few different modes including dash cam mode which may just push me to buy another one of these. Also it has wifi(which will drain your battery FAST if you have it on in BFE) which is nice to use at home if need be. I honestly don't use the 4k on this as it eats up too much memory, but the 1080 is just fine and is quite nice for the price I paid($40). FYI recording at 1080 with wifi off got over 2hrs of recording in, and still had battery to spare. Only reason it got 4 stars is that it does seem a little cheaply made, so not sure it would handle being dropped from any height, but once again for the price expectations need to be tempered. Overall this is a good little action camera that you wont break the bank on. Last thing it doesn't say anywhere on the outside packaging, but this camera only supports up to a 32gb micro sd card. Hope this helps someone.Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

Bad Battery or Bad Camera or both?

This is my second review as my first review that was approved wasn't posted. Followed instructions to the T. especially for battery charging. The camera only recorded one loop in the auto mode. Second use, after recharging again after only 3 minutes recorded in auto mode, the camera froze. I removed the battery and started recording using the wireless control and recorded approximately 5 minutes of 1080P video as the battery discharged quickly. Recharged the battery and set it to record in 4k and after several minutes of recording using the android app the app stopped working after getting a dead battery notification in the app and the connection was lost. The camera LCD was on but froze again. The battery indicator reflected half battery life remaining thus I left the camera in the frozen state with LCD on and it remained on for another 35 -45 minutes or so. The camera was very hot to touch. At this point, I had written my first review and continued with attempts to get the best out of the camera and recharged the battery again. Upon powering on the LCD welcome screen letters were not complete. I used the wristband remote until the camera or the remote experienced problems. I removed and replaced the battery again and was able to record approximately 15 minutes of 4k video using the app to control the camera settings. I could not determine which component was the problem or are they both defective. Video quality - 4K is horrible but then it's not really 4K it's upscaled to 4K. 1080P is subpar even compared to cable tv's 1080i playing on my Samsung KS8000 4K TV. I recorded similar video with my Samsung Note 4 in HD and if was far superior to the camera's 4k video. Wifi - Wifi connected easily and quickly however when my app froze and lost the wifi connection after getting a dead battery notification on the phone app although the camera's LCD remained on and the battery indicator showed half battery life remaining. I couldn't determine what the issue was as mentioned above the camera froze again. Apps and software- The camera didn't work long enough to determine the apps capability. The software is very basic and was unable to transfer files after the camera froze 3 times. So what is the problem Camera or software? My thought is the camera as the first videos downloaded/transferred smoothly and efficiently. I should have trusted the reviews about the battery and I should have given more consideration to the knowledgeable Best Buy representative who stated he didn't know anything about the camera as they were just received shortly before Christmas and the store didn't have them on display. My closing comments on my first review is more than likely the reason it was not posted after being approved. Thus I will refrain from giving details about Best Buy only products which are in general made to good quality standards.Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.

I think I have figured out the battery problem.

When I got this camera, the battery was totally dead. I had to charge it up over night, and by the next morning the camera was functioning normally. However there were some problems. The camera would get into a strange state sometimes where the orange light would come on very faint, and nothing else. If I removed the battery for about a minute, then put it back, the camera would return to normal function. Sometimes when you attach, or disconnect the USB cable, the camera would get into the strange state where the orange light is faintly lite. I noticed that the date set into the camera was 2016. The remote battery was also totally dead too. My theory is that these cameras were made way back in 2016, and sat in a where house for some time before being delivered to Best Buy. I'm thinking I'll get a new battery, and a new battery for the remote, and things will be OK. The video is fairly good, and I like the many features. The video get's a bit noisy in dark light levels. But then I remember this is a 4K camera for $40.00. It's a good camera for a kid. The waterproof case is definitely a plus. For doing simple recording, thisw camera works well. Don't expect great performance in dim light levels. Again $40.00 camera. For the price, this camera works. A message to Vivitar. Don't put the batteries in these products until they are ready to ship. The self discharge will drain the batteries down, and render them useless if you leave them sitting in a where House for any length of time.Sorry, there was a problem. Please try again later.
