I clicked on Mark's Vivitar link above to see if there was any additional
information on this camera, like its dimensions, or CCD size, but there
was not. However, I did notice at the bottom of the screen a picture of
three gorgeous women. It seemed obvious that this picture was not a
sample photo from one of their cameras, but it was also unclear as to
whether these women were company executives, staff, or simply hired
models put there to attract your eye.
It looks nicely compact (the camera). :)

I found some additional specs at LetsGoDigital. It's an ultra-compact
with a 10 megapixel 1/1.8" CCD and 6x (37 - 222 mm) zoom.
How'd they do that?
GARY POGODA at 01:07pm on Tuesday, February 21, 2006
Ouch! sounds like maybe a fringe picture with a bit of sharpness somewhere, UNLESS they have some secret formula!
One step foward, two steps back?

Also, they sure did do alot of advertising on the front, all it needs are some "moon-eyes"

Does this camera have image stabilization??
Jon Drake at 05:37pm on Sunday, October 29, 2006
I bought this camera and I'm happy of that.
Yes, it has image stabilization but is not perfect, The image quality is good enough.
its optical zoom is very good!
I think it's a good choice.

Dear Sir or Madam,
I have a VivCam x60 which I have used on one occasion. Sometime, while left unattended, I suspect a child has broken it, diabling the LCD which is not functioning correctly.
It is still under warante, although I cannot find the document. This camera was bought on a shopping channel but the 28 Day replacement period has lapsed due to all the Christmass hullaballoo.
Can you tell me where I can get this repaired, obtain a new LCD screen, or give me a contact number for Vivitar United Kingdom

I am having problems finding a replacement battery for my vivicam x60. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Delrose West at 10:24pm on Sunday, February 22, 2009
Are you in Canada? The Battery Man - 204-775-8271 has many hard-to-find batteries here in Winnipeg. I can call if you like. Also, I am looking for Delrose West in London, England. Would that be you??
Dianne at 11:00pm on Monday, April 20, 2009
No I'm not in Canada. Yes I am Delrose West of London England. Are you Dianne Renwick of Canada?
How easy is it to get the batteries. Does batteryman have a website? Thanks for answering.
Delrose West at 07:56am on Friday, April 24, 2009
OMG! Yes I am Dianne Renick and I've been trying to find/call you. I've been calling a number I have for you, but no answer. This is a miracle.
Maybe I will deliver it in person!!
Dianne at 02:50pm on Friday, April 24, 2009
Sorry, I was so excited about finding you, I didn't answer your questions. The website is http://www.batteryman.ca I called, the man's name is Brett. He can get your battery for you, cost will be approx. $50 Cdn. Shipping costs are unknown. I told him I could deliver it instead and we had a laugh!
If you would contact me, that would just make my day!
