This is by far the worst IR camera I have ever used. It's cheaply made, only 3 of 6 IR leds activate in video mode and then it washes out the image. If that isn't bad enough, sometimes the IR LEDS will cut off for no reason leaving a wonderful black screen to look at. The videos are grainy and leave much to be desired.
After using this on an investigation I can tell you that I will gladly take the compensation check now Vivitar.. a full refund would be great too!
This is my second DVR51ON camrecorder, I love them!! for the price they can't be beat. I read that some people say they eat batteries, I have not had this problem: I use rechargeable batteries and the memory chip runs out before the batteries. on average they stop working after an hour and a half. but there is still two stripes on the batteries. Also I think it's neat that you can take still photo's and if a movie or photo is taken in daylight it is in color the night vision is in black and white.
I bought the camcorder to use for paranormal investigations. I like that its easy to use and simple download. The sound is all right, but the picture is a little grainy. For the price it is a good deal. I just need to add a stronger infared light with it. I like it otherwise!
camera is great for kids! the night vision is pretty cool also when it kicks in, not something i would use to capture moments but my kids loveit and it works well for them and easy to us also!
I like it. You get what you pay for but it really comes down to your own expectations. If you are expecting this device to razzle and dazzle you, it won't do it. This camera is very basic and the only thing it has that makes it worth ANYTHING is the night vision. It's easy and simple. If you wanna have some fun with it, take shots in the dark of your friends at night or get a quick shot of the seen at the grocery store that day of that ***hole who bumped your car in the parking lot, and there you go...evidence! Ha Ha. Other than that, don't expect too much out of it. It's a simple fast shooter camera and camcorder, the picture quality isn't the best but it's perfectly good enough. Simple is better.....I think.
