John Lewis, and other stores, are selling the Vivitar Vivicam X225, an updated version of the Vivitar Vivicam 8225, the only camera we’ve ever rated here as “Do Not Buy!” Our lowest rating ever, simply because we found that the camera had no optical zoom. After a brief look at the X225, it appears as though the same still applies to the new camera! (insert *for shame* here).
“Take pleasure in using this sleek, elegant, and feature rich camera. With its impressive 10.1 megapixel resolution, as well as anti-shake and red eye reduction tools, you’ll be astonished at just how easy it is taking crisp and smooth photos” Source: Vivitar.
The Vivitar Vivicam X225 features: 10 megapixels, “2x optical zoom”, 4x digital zoom, 2.4″ screen, face and smile detection, red eye reduction, image stabiliser (digital), self timer, auto focus, lithium ion batter, and xenon flash. Click below to see the store / camera details.
