Vivitar� DVR785HD Pro Action 5.1-Megapixel Camcorder, Blue
Great for the price
I have just tested this camera with little time available. However after playing with all the controls and capabilities, I would have to say I am impressed with it. The camera stills are sharp. At 5MP, it suits my needs for miscellaneous pictures without having to drag out my big DSLR. The video is smooth and tracks well with a small amount of blur when moving horizontally. Forward movement is perfect and poses no image degradation at all. For a 720P resolution, it is better than I expected! The touchscreen and ability to see what your shooting is an awesome feature. More expensive models, like GoPro require an additional screen at a cost or $79 or more.
For $59 + tax, it's an absolute bargain! I wasn't able to report on the battery life or underwater shots as I am unable to test these at this time.
