Digital cameras are taking over the world. Well they're certainly taking over our world, because this site is full of the ingenious little blighters. Digital photography makes 35mm and other soon-to-be-obsolete formats look positively prehistoric. And the fact that no film is required means the cameras themselves are getting smaller all the time. What's more, most digital cameras allow you to view your pics in an instant via built-in screens.
As you may have guessed, we're smitten by the digital revolution. But all of the above isn't sales spiel, it's fact. And be honest, do you really want to be the only snapper in town taking pics on a 35mm brick? (The technological equivalent of wearing stonewash jeans and a burgundy leather blouson). We thought not. That's why you're reading this.
The trouble is there are digital cameras and there are digital cameras. And in order to achieve maximum clarity you really need to up the megapixel count. Unfortunately, 5 megapixel machines don't come cheap. Or so we thought...
The amazing 5 megapixel Vivicam 5.0 packs an almighty punch in terms of technical prowess, yet it costs under a hundred quid. This chic, compact camera is jammed with features, including 2x digital zoom, colour 1.4" screen, 14MB built-in memory, movie-clip capability, self timer and four mode flash with red-eye reduction. Add to this 2560x1920 maximum resolution (stills) and 320x240 (video) and you're looking at a highly impressive camera that laughs in the lens of costly competitors and scoffs at the pitiful pixel power of inferior wannabes.
The sleek and robust Vivicam 5.0 comes bundled with a stack of powerful but idiot-proof software, so even a complete digi-dunce will be able to get snapping immediately. So come on; it's time to stop shovelling coal into your tired old camera and get hold of an up-to-the-minute Vivicam 5.0. Smile!
