Has an Image Stabilizer

Unlike most of the other video cameras of a comparable age and spec to the DVR936 which do not have an image stabilizer, the Vivitar DVR936 has an image stabilizer.

We compared all the other video cameras with an image stabilizer to this video camera and we think the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price], and the DashCam[pl_2962215_price] both from ION or the Midland XTC-200[plb_1715689_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Display

The Vivitar DVR936 has a built-in display. Most of the other camcorders that are a similar age to the DVR936 also have a built-in display.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative camcorders with a built-in display currently available including the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price], the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], or the The Game ActION[pl_2962224_price] all from ION which has better reviews.

10 Reasons Against

Vivitar Only Has Poor Reviews for Its Camcorders

We calculated the average reviews for all Vivitar camcorders and also specifically for Vivitar camcorders and found that in both cases Vivitar had poor reviews compared to other manufacturers.

Poor Product Quality

One customer who bought the product reckoned that it was not good quality. This year Amazon Customer mentioned in their review of this camcorder on Amazon “Its not the best quality picture / playback in the world”.

Very Small Digital Zoom

The Vivitar DVR936 has one of the smaller digital zooms (only 3 times zoom factor) amongst camcorders of this age. Camcorders that have been on the market for more than two years have digital zooms of between 2x and 3,000x, and the average digital zoom is 320x.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Vivitar DVR936 does not have an HDMI, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec video cameras that have been available for around the same time as the DVR936 also do not have an HDMI.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have an HDMI to this video camera and we think the DashCam WiFi[pl_2962216_price], the DashCam[pl_2962215_price], or the The Game ActION[pl_2962224_price] all from ION which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

The Vivitar DVR936 is not waterproof. Most of the other comparable spec camcorders that were released around the same time as the DVR936 are also not waterproof.

Camcorders which are waterproof that might be worth looking at include the S3000[pl_2962199_price], or the The Game ActION[pl_2962224_price] both from ION.

Chart Edit
