The Vivitar Vivicam T027 is OK, but nothing special. I purchased 2 for Christmas, 1 for my teen, 1 for my tween. The batteries die quickly in it. The picture is grainy and of horrible quality. I downloaded the software that came with it, but cann't open the manual for the camera. I tried to find info on their website to see if I can improve the quality some how. I couldn't get any info. I tried to find out if rechargable batteries could be used, but couldn't get an answer.
