On average, T135 owners rated this camera 73 out of 100.

Reasonably Priced

Several people wrote in their reviews that the product was good value for money. Bought One said in October last year “Right images then I think it could have been very good especially for the price” in their review of the Vivitar T135 although they gave the product a rating of 2 stars. Mr. Richard J. Myddleton said in his review of the Vivitar T135 on Amazon “The photographs are a reasonable quality given the price of the camera”.

Two people who purchased this digital camera considered that it was cheap. Paul-65 mentioned “On the plus side no expensive 3D monitor and you can view the photos on any Laptop/PC” in their Vivitar T135 review.

One Vivitar T135 owner who reviewed the Vivitar T135 mentioned that it was a bargain for the price. Two years ago Mr. J. Pacey said on Amazon “Cheap and cheerful 3D camera.” in their Vivitar T135 review and gave it a very good rating.

Good Quality Pictures

A few people reckoned that the product was able to produce good images.

Easy to Use

One person wrote in their reviews that this digital camera was easy to use. Mr. J. Pacey mentioned “It's easy to use in either 3D or mono use”.

Good Size

One Vivitar T135 reviewer who bought the Vivitar T135 thought it was compact. Mr. Richard J. Myddleton wrote in his review of the Vivitar T135 “3D Compact”.

Good Product Quality

A few Vivitar T135 owners who reviewed it considered that it was good quality. Paul-65 mentioned on Amazon “Reasonably good photo quality for the size of lens2”.

Good Screen / Viewfinder

One person who reviewed this digital camera reckoned that it had a good screen.

3D Compatible

Unlike most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were released around the same time as the T135 which are not 3D compatible, the Vivitar T135 is 3D compatible.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3D compatible cameras currently available including the Coolpix S5200[pl_1873851_price], or the Coolpix S9500[pl_1721861_price] both from Nikon or the Canon PowerShot A3300 IS[plb_66875_price] which has better reviews.

SD Memory Card

This digital camera supports an SD memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on cameras of a comparable type and age to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If you want a camera with a better memory card type then you might also want to consider the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC), the Sony DSC-WX350[plb_2163795_price] (MicroSD (TransFlash)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Canon PowerShot N100[plb_2118439_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC) which is also higher rated.

Quite Big Digital Zoom

The average digital zoom of cameras of this age and spec is 12x. At 5 times zoom factor, the Vivitar T135 has a quite big digital zoom compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were released more than two years ago.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 5x digital zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the MV900F[pl_1519008_price], or the WB30F[pl_1609452_price] both from Samsung.

If you want a camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might want to look at the G100[pl_1861772_price] (6x), or the J1458W[pl_1861982_price] (6x) both from GE or the Kodak Pixpro FZ151[plb_2596074_price] (6x) which also has a higher rating.

Supports Video Recording

supports video recording

The Vivitar T135 supports video recording, as do most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the T135.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras which support video recording and we think the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price], and the Canon PowerShot SX160 IS[plb_1549622_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other cameras that are a comparable age to the T135, the Vivitar T135 has an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other cameras with an image stabiliser to this camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price], and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ36[plb_1725803_price] is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Vivitar T135 does not support Full HD video, although it is worth noting that most of the other cameras of this age and spec also do not support Full HD video.

We think you might also be interested in alternative cameras which also support Full HD video including the Coolpix S9500[pl_1721861_price], or the Coolpix S6500[pl_1882940_price] both from Nikon or the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price] which also has a higher rating.

If you are looking for a camera with a larger screen size then you might want to consider the Lumix DMC-TZ30[pl_1847857_price] (3"), or the Lumix DMC-SZ8[pl_2232116_price] (3") both from Panasonic or the Fujifilm X100[plb_2173855_price] (2.8") which also has a higher rating.

3 Other reasons to consider the Vivitar T135

Released Over Four Years Ago

This camera was released over four years ago.

MOS Sensor Type

The Vivitar T135 has a better sensor type than most compact camera digital cameras that were launched more than two years ago. This camera has a MOS sensor type, whereas most digital cameras of a similar age and spec to it have a CCD sensor type.

It may also be worth considering one of the other cameras that have a CMOS sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Coolpix S6500[pl_1882940_price], or the Coolpix P510[pl_2071647_price] both from Nikon or the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price].

Digital cameras with a better sensor type that might also be worth considering include the Samsung ST90[plb_1216_price] (CCD), or the Nikon Coolpix L27[plb_1968351_price] (CCD) which also has a higher rating.

Average Megapixel Count

With a megapixel count of 12.1 megapixels, the Vivitar T135 has a relatively average megapixel count compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to the T135.

We compared this camera to all the other 12.1MP cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the IXUS 230 HS[pl_1504252_price], and the PowerShot ELPH 115 HS[pl_796910_price] both from Canon or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77[plb_1836487_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a digital camera with a higher megapixel count then you might also want to consider the Stylus SZ-12[pl_2384459_price] (14MP and higher rated), or the VH-520[pl_1902169_price] (14MP and higher rated) both from Olympus.
