Having problems with your Vivitar Vivicam 8225 Digital Camera ?
My vivitar viviCam 8225 keeps taking blurry photos and when i point it a something it is blurry.
From the first day we bought the 8225 we always had to hit the Wide / Tele switch 2 times to tele to get it in focus. none of the other w/t settings would be in focus. i was getting the camera ready for use the other day and noticed the aperture to be out of axial alignment with the lens. Gave it a tap, it moved to the center, anouther tap it moved to the side, everything out of focus. just bought a jewelers screwdriver set and will try to tighten this up but it apparently was never tightened properly. I know this is a good looking camera on paper (8.1 meg and all that) but boy am i glad i got it on sale! And it is not all the fault of the poor Chinese 2nd graders who assembled the thing, this camera takes movie clips but by design has no microphone, no sound, absurd! I bought this in part because back in the 60"s when i needed a quality flash unit to set atop my SLR it was usually a Vivitar. They have apparently gone the route of most of the corporate world; sell outs!

The Vivitar ViviCam X014 keeps stating Memory Full, Insert a SD Memory Card to Transfer and Take More Than One Test Photos. It has a new memory card in it, but I am unable to figure out how to make this work. Can you help me?
You have one or more pictures on the camera's internal memory and it won't let you use the memory card. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. After that, your ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera
Bought a Vivitar Vivicam T027 and I keep getting 'card protected' on the screen when I try to take a photo. I have tried a 1GB and a 4GB SD card. I have them inserted correctly as they will not go in the other way. I have tried them with the lock on the card in both positions. I called the customer service- not helpful. Any suggestions?
Remove the card from its slot, try to clean the card slots terminal connector. a small cotton buds with alcohol would be enough. Make sure to set the lock of the card to open position. Insert the card to its slot and open the camera to see if the mes ... Vivitar ViviCam 3915 Digital Camera
Is there a way to download images from a ViviCam 25 cmaera without the Vivitar Experience Image Manager? I already have a photo managing program for my cameras. (I have over 6000 photos in it.)

Blurry photos I get one crisp clear photo out of about 15. I don't know the reason. I have sent it in twice and they repair it (ya right) and I get the same thing. The only thing I can figure out is that on the lense ring if I make sure it is pointed toward the pine trees (lanscape I assume) that it will take a decent photo. They have changed the lense supposedly on the second time I sent it in. I have an extended warrantee on it yet.. I went into settings and took it off of auto and put it on l

I have a Fuji S 5200 Digital camera and the SD card kept coming up ''write Error'' every time I took a photo. I have replaced the card with a new one which worked for about the first 20 photos, 2 weeks. It now keeps coming up ''Card not initialised'' each time I turn on the camera. The only thing I have done since taking the last photo is to download them onto my I Book G4. Am I doing something stupid?

Hi, I just bought a vivitar vivicam t27. the photos are all blurry. I have never been so surprised by such a bad photo. The camera is 1 day old. Is this a bad camera, or is there a fix for this disasterous looking set of photos. SIGNED/ hugely disappointed in this vivtar product. ):
Are you zooming to take the pictures. Because this camera does not have an optical zoom. image quality falls apart rapidly with a digital zoom. The lens is small, doesn't have good light gathering capabilities. most likely plastic lens. Unfortunately ... Vivitar ViviCam 3915 Digital Camera

Unfocused Pics I have a Nikon Coolpix L11 digital camera and am trying to take some pics of some of my older pics in my photo album. They keep turning out blurry. I just got this camera from someone and also need a free downloadable manual if at all possible. Thank you so very much for your time.

When using my d80 (no matter what lens is on it) it just keeps trying to focus and will not take the picture. It was fine on Sun and then Tue wham!! I can not think of doing anything to it and no one has touched it. You can hear the motor as the lens is trying to focus. If I focus manual no problem except a lot of the photos may still be blurry (that could be me)
Be sure the lens is firmly switched to M/A. For some reason the camera is not acquiring a subject to focus on. Have you tried a simple subject with lots of contrast, like a black something against a white background. Cameras have a tough time when ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
