Nature is beautiful, without a doubt. Forests, mountains, valleys and desertsâ€”all of these boast a unique kind of beauty that captivates each one of us in a very visceral manner. This is exactly the reason why many people enjoy capturing natureâ€™s beauty through the lens of a camera.
However, there is one place that has eluded the cameras of vast majority: underwater. For many years now, underwater photography has been the sanctum for only a select group of photographers. But with the coming of excellent underwater-capable camera packages, one of the most remarkable of which is the Vivitar ViviCam 5188 with Waterproof Case, that is all about to change.
Boldly Go Where Most Digital Cameras Probably Shouldn’t
The Vivitar ViviCam 5188 comes from one of the worldâ€™s most popular camera manufacturers. And as such, you can come to expect nothing less than a top-caliber product. The Vivitar ViviCam 5188 delivers beautiful, picture-perfect images with ease. On top of everything else, this camera is incredibly easy to handle. After youâ€™ve taken your shots, reviewing them is simple, thanks to its bright 1.5-inch TFT LCD display. And when youâ€™re no longer using the camera, it can be easily stored in your pocket since it is quite light, compact and streamlined as well.
When youâ€™re ready to capture some more photos, youâ€™ll be able to do so instantly because the camera is fully operational a few quick moments after pressing the power button. Similarly, attaching the sturdy waterproof case is as easy as turning the unit on. Simply put the camera inside, and latch the locks: it is as easy as that. Plus, the waterproof case is as well-designed as the camera itself, which means handling and taking pictures inside the case remains effortless.
It has a 5.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, which enables the camera to take photos with resolutions of up to 2560 x 1920 pixels. Likewise, the cameraâ€™s powerful sensor allows for extremely beautiful colors and lifelike details in images. Furthermore, the camera is also capable of recording videos at a resolution of 640 x 480. Rest assured, pictures come out looking great whether theyâ€™re taken underwater or not.
The Vivitar ViviCam 5188 is equipped with an 8.5mm fixed-focus lens, which also means itâ€™s the right focal length for grab shots in a party or at the beach. And, if you need to bring things up closer to you, the 8X digital zoom does the job nicely. Last but not the least, the Vivitar ViviCam 5188 comes packaged with a 16 MB flash memory card, letting you store a lot of pictures. The camera is compatible with the SD card format, which is one of the most prevalent card formats in the market today.
The Vivitar ViviCam 5188 with Waterproof Case is the ideal choice for casual photographers who want to capture the beauty of nature, especially underwater scenery. This package proves that there is no need for other more expensive equipment; for less than a hundred dollars, you get a powerful camera for daily use.
