My Two Cameras: A Comparison

Updated on October 12, 2012

My Two Cameras

In this lens I'll be comparing the two cameras that I own and use. I'll just give you the basics. They're both Vivitars, but one is a 4.0 Megapixel, and the other is a 5.0 Megapixel. I use the 4.0 Megapixel one as my back up. Obviously, the one with more Megapixels is going to take better pictures.

Vivitar 3815

This is the older one of the two. I was rather surprised at the quality of pictures it took for being only 4.0 megapixels. It came with Roxio Photo Suite 5 software, and you can make all the adjustments as far as White Balance, Scene, ISO, and Size of photos that you want. I'm not a professional photographer, so I just put the settings on Auto. The software is fairly simple to use, and you can take a lot of pictures without a memory card. The amount of pictures you can take, of course, varies depending on what size and quality of photos you are taking.

Here's how many photos you can take of each size, with the quality of the picture set at "Fine," with no memory card.

640 X 480 - 112

1280 X 960 - 31

1600 X 1200 - 20

2304 X 1728 - 9

You Can Probably Find It Here

Since this is an older camera, you should be able to find it here for not too much money.

Here Too

Someone here has probably upgraded their camera and has one here for sale.

Vivitar 5100

I got this camera as a Christmas gift tin 2009. It's only 1 Megapixel better than the old one I have, but it's amazing the difference between the clarity of the photos. This one, too, has all the adjustments you might need to make available, as well as, one more size option for your photos. It came with ULead photo software. The software is kind of complicated to use, so I haven't done much with it. In the photos you'll see below, you'll notice that the color seems washed out. That's because I didn't have the color set on High. I had it set on Medium. When set to the "High" setting, the pictures turn out very well.

My Camera Here

Since this isn't the latest version of a digital camera either, it shouldn't cost much to buy one.

Thanks for visiting my lens. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Leave your thoughts here.
