6 Reasons For

Waterproof

Unlike most of the other comparable spec video cameras that are a similar age to the DVR786 which are not waterproof, the Vivitar DVR786 is waterproof.

We compared this video camera to all the other waterproof camcorders and we think the ION S3000[plb_2962199_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you want a video camera that is waterproof then you might want to look at the ION The Game ActION[plb_2962224_price].

Lithium Battery Technology

This video camera has a Lithium-Ion battery technology, which is the most frequently found battery technology on camcorders that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Display

The Vivitar DVR786 has a built-in display. Most of the other camcorders that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in display.

There are a number of alternative video cameras which also have a built-in display which you might also want to look at including the ION The Game ActION[plb_2962224_price].

The Vivitar DVR786 supports a maximum still image resolution of 2592 x 1944. That's over two times the still image resolution of the most frequently found still image resolution(s) of 1920 x 1080.

A 2592 x 1944 still image resolution(s) is actually the best supported still image resolution amongst all camcorders that have been around for a similar time to the DVR786.

A 640 x 480 still image resolution(s) is the worst supported still image resolution across similar types of video camera.
