A reader is looking for a review of the 3 megapixel Vivitar Vivicam 3713 – if you own this camera, please take some time out and email me or post a quick review of the camera in the comments. Vivitar’s website seems to lack any information about the camera, however there is some information on the Argos website, where the camera is available for £39.99. A guide to writing a reader review can be found here. If you would like to email me some pictures to share then please do that as well.
Updated 20/10/05: I received this email from Peter Tattersall: “I bought this camera three months ago for my daughter. The image quality is poor for 3mp, it uses standard AAA batteries that run down in no time so we had to buy rechargeable ones, and I’ve had great difficulty downloading the images onto an Apple imac. I’m taking it back to Argos, it may just be that this one is faulty. Although it looked great value I wouldn’t recommend it.”
Updated 09/07/07: Eddie emailed me this review: “Hi I bought this camera a while ago off ebay for £10, you get a mixture of good shots and blurred shots, lost my CD so can’t use the webcam, searching internet for software but no luck. I don’t use the flash because you can’t make out what you’ve just taken. Video is good. I like the LCD screen, helps to see what you’re taking, don’t like the old view finders. I am happy with this product, I don’t think I would have bought it for £39.99 though. “
