With a weight of 180 grams, the Vivitar V5119 has a fairly typical weight compared to most of the other comparable spec cameras that were launched around the same time as this digital camera.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 180g cameras and we think the Q + SMC PENTAX 5-15mm, and the Q7 (£345.39) both from Pentax which and both of have better reviews are also worth considering.
