Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5018 Digital Camera ?

Vivitar 5018 camera, awful or faulty?!

\015 I have just got my daughter a Vivitar 5018 for Christmas. The picture quality is awful on the screen on the back of the camera, really dark, or bleached out when using the flash. The images are also grainy. Have I got a faulty camera or is it just generally an awful product?! I know it is a cheap camera, but I still expect it to do an adequate job. Thanks\015

I was needing a new flash for my sony a230 camera and I ordered a sony flash from accessorycircuit.com. Anyway to make a long story short, they were out of the flash I wanted and said that they had got the new Vivitar Pro 648 series flash in and that it was really good and would work with my camera. I wanted to read up and find out more before I bought it. I can only find out the tech specs on the vivitar pro648 on the vivitar site and that is the only place I can find out any info at all.
