With a resolution of just 640×480 I don’t think Vivitar’s new DVR 510 has what it takes to dethrone the almighty Flip, but it does have a few unique features that will make it stand out in an already crowded market. It’s waterproof up to a depth of 5 meters thanks to what appears to be a sealed housing that they’re incorrectly using in that product shot (isn’t the DVR 510 inserted backwards?) and it’s got basic night vision too making it actually usable in the dark.
The 2GB of built-in storage isn’t much, though more than enough when you’re only capturing VGA resolution footage, but that’s expandable thanks to an SD card slot. It’s also got a 1.8-inch LCD screen, TV-out, a sliding USB connector and is available now for just $49.99.
