4 Reasons For

Three Battery Slots

The Vivitar DVR426 has more battery slots than most of the video cameras of this type and age. This Vivitar video camera is a three battery slot camcorder compared to most of the video cameras of a similar type and age to the DVR426 which only have between one and two battery slots.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Display

Like most of the other small sensor size camcorders that were released more than two years ago, the Vivitar DVR426 has a built-in display.

Chart Edit

Has One White Balance Mode

The number of white balance modes found on the Vivitar DVR426 is more than most small sensor size camcorders that are a similar age to it. This camcorder has an Auto white balance mode, which is the most commonly found white balance mode found on similar spec camcorders that came out around the same time as the DVR426.

JPG Image Format

This camcorder has a JPG image format, which is typical of many video cameras that came out more than two years ago.

14 Reasons Against

Vivitar Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Camcorders

Vivitar is one of the less good camcorder manufacturers according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all video cameras.

Quite Small Screen Size

Video cameras of a similar type and age to the DVR426 have screen sizes of between 1.4" and 4.3". At only 1.77 inches, the Vivitar DVR426 has a fairly small screen size compared to most of the other camcorders that have been available for around the same time as the DVR426.

If this video camera screen size is not large enough for you then you might want to consider the Zoom Q4 (£199.99) (2") which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Vivitar DVR426 does not have an image stabiliser, unlike most of the other camcorders of this age and type which have an image stabiliser.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the Canon Vixia HF M40, or the Panasonic HDC-TM900 is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The Vivitar DVR426 is not Full HD, unlike most of the other video cameras of a similar spec and age to the DVR426.

If you would prefer a camcorder that is Full HD then you might also want to consider the Vixia HF M40, or the Legria HF R406 both from Canon.

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

Most of the other camcorders of this age and type have an HDMI port, however the Vivitar DVR426 does not have an HDMI port.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with an HDMI port and we think the Canon Vixia HF M40 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Very Small Maximum Memory Card Size

With a maximum memory card size of only 16 gigabytes, the Vivitar DVR426 has one of the smaller maximum memory card sizes amongst small sensor size camcorders of this age. Camcorders of this age and spec have maximum memory card sizes of between 8GB and 130GB.

If this video camera maximum memory card size is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Rollei S-30 (£78.99) (32GB) which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Small Digital Zoom

Camcorders of a comparable age and type to the DVR426 have digital zooms of between 1.5x and 3,500x. The Vivitar DVR426 has a quite small digital zoom (only 4 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other small sensor size camcorders that are a similar age to the DVR426.

If you are looking for a video camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to look at the Canon Legria HF R56 (£264.35) (57x) which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most small sensor size camcorders that were released more than two years ago do not have an interchangeable lens. The Vivitar DVR426 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the Sony HVR-Z7 which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Vivitar DVR426 does not have a night mode, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other small sensor size camcorders that were launched around the same time as the DVR426 also do not have a night mode.

We compared this video camera to all the other camcorders with a night mode and we think the Canon Legria HF M52 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The Vivitar DVR426 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other small sensor size camcorders that are a similar age to the DVR426 are also not 3D compatible.

Video cameras which are 3D compatible that might also be worth considering include the Canon XF105 (£1,799.00) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

Like most of the other small sensor size camcorders that were launched around the same time as the DVR426, the Vivitar DVR426 does not have a built-in projector.

We think you might also be interested in other video cameras which also have a built-in projector including the Sony HDR-PJ320 (£329.99).
