Vivitar DVR 528
Released May, 2010
The Pros:Small and compact - easy to carry around. Great value - shoots 720p video for a very low price. Records at a full 30 frames per second - produces nice fluid video.
The Cons:Takes AAA batteries - users will have to swap out batteries on a regular basis. Zoom control is inconveniently located on the camera. Mono audio recording - not the best quality.

While the cost has been significantly reduced, the same 5 megapixel sensor is used and the same fixed focus lens gathers light without using a narrow focal range. The sensor is capable of white balancing to account for a variety of lighting conditions, and can record either still images in JPG format or video in AVI format. Video can be viewed by copying the files through a standard USB interface, or by taking advantage of the TV out function. The camera runs on basic AAA batteries.
