This camera is a somewhat small camera with a 2.5 LCD screen. The Vivtar Vivicam 5386 is easy to figure out without having to use the user's manual. You can do many things like record videos (the built in microphone is great), change the color of the pictures to sepia or black and white, etc. There is a bit of a shutter lag at times. The camera takes AA batteries, and I reccomend using energizer lithiums or rechargable batteries. This camera has many different features. You can hide the date so it doesn't show up over the picture, you can change the exposure to darker or lighter, and it has an action option so you can even take pictures when objects in movement. I reccoment this camera, having using it for 3 years. It is very easy to use and takes little time to figure out.
