Vivitar DVR 560
Released June, 2010
The Pros:Inexpensive - low cost of entry. Good for emergency purposes - can be stored in a vehicle's glove compartment.
The Cons:Poor construction - feels like a toy. Poor audio and video quality - too low for most. Records in 4:3 format - not widescreen like with most TVs and computer monitors.
The Vivitar DVR 560 is a low-cost video camera that captures images in a high resolution. This is similar to the DVR 518 in construction and features, with the only major difference being an Antishake function to reduce handheld motion.

Apart from that they are almost identical, with a 5 megapixel sensor that handles white balancing and can capture both still pictures and video, and a fixed focus lens that attempts to keep everything in focus all at once. The display is slightly smaller at 1.8 inches, but output is still sent to a TV out port and recorded onto SD media. A USB interface is used to copy files.
