The Pros:Compact enough to easily carry in a pocket or handbag. Decent manual adjustments (including white balance, exposure) for a budget point-and-shoot. Has a self timer.
The Cons:When you move the picture s blurry. Lacks any optical zoom. Very poor picture quality, inferior to other budget options, despite megapixels.

The antishake feature of this camera helps to reduce blur. This camera is a step up from the lower cost Vivicam X025 model in that it has a 2.7" display for framing and viewing photos (as opposed to a 2.4" screen). There are four similarly priced cameras at the upper end of this line, and they all have slightly different features: the Vivicam X029 lacks the Vivicam X026's 12.1 megapixel resolution (for more detailed color) and 32MB internal memory, the Vivicam X225's 3x optical zoom/8x digital zoom (for more detail far away, and the ability to make large prints with detail), and the Vivicam X324's Auto Focus Zoom 3x 36-108mm 1:2 8-4.8 lens. There are color options available for the Vivitar Vivicam X029 digital camera.
