    With my rewards and coupon I got this for $24 which is a great price. This is not a high end GoPro but it does take decent hd video and decent pictures out of the box. I decided to modify this to work with my IR light for ghost hunts. Once the ir filter was removed(Warning this will void the warranty) the videos and picture shot in total darkness were great. I find this to be useful tool for this purpose. I just wish the battery life was longer on full charge shooting constant hd video I got about 1 1/2 hour of use before it shut down. I would recommend this for those on a budget looking for a decent action cam.

    Memory card is NOT INCLUDED!!!

    Sorry, I can't tell you how well it works, or even if it works, or if it will hold up -- BECAUSE I DIDN'T GET A MICRO SD CARD!

    Okay, fair enough of Vivitar ... although the absence of a card is noted in only fine print on the side of the box, many serious cameras do not come with cards, for various sound reasons.

    But Staples' product description doesn't mention this need at all!!!! Luckily, they're also out of it, even as it went on an even deeper discount this week.

    Online PDF Manual states that it accepts cards up to 32GB, but nowhere does anything state what capacity to expect, nor speed/class of card required for reliable video performance.

    (For product information, try these:)

    I expect more from a retailer. For now, I can't recommend it, because who knows what other sad surprises await.

    Comments about Vivitar Pro Action Waterproof Camcorder, Blue DVR785HD:

    Works fairly well, the battery life isn't as long I'd like. Also, it would be good if it were possible to plug in an alternate battery and record at the same time. I use the camera to record my bike ride and only get about one hour of recording from the device.
    The image is OK for the price, particularly since I'm only using it to have a record should I be involved in an accident. I wouldn't be inclined to use it if I wanted a quality image, say for a Youtube video. When I want a better image I put my regular camera, but I don't like to put my better camera at risk of being damaged on my bicycle.

    The video on this DVR isn't bad, however, the microphone does not work. We get no sound except static. I have sent two emails to the company with no response. I spent twenty minutes on the phone with the customer service rep and then got disconnected. When I tried to call back, they couldn't hear me. I will be exchanging them tomorrow.

    Good product for the price.

    Comments about Vivitar Pro Action Waterproof Camcorder, Blue DVR785HD:

    I bought this camera to use on vacation since it was rather inexpensive and simple to use. On the positive side it's very easy to use and transfer video Most of the video come out pretty good. The main downside is it has a very small screen and it's hard to determine if the subject is in focus. However, it appears to be pretty forgiving and the majority of the video are acceptable or better. The other problem is that the camera seems to eat batteries. I have to keep a spare set in the case at all times since it often needs new batteries after a day of taking video
