    I bought these for my wife at christmas for her bird watching. Every pic she takes is blurry. Now you want me to pay to get them to work! If they even work at all! I think you are selling a piece of junk. I'm takeing them back ,and am going to write Vivitar and let them know they have some junk on the market.

    I have the same problem, every picture I take with this camera is blurry, even though the image in the binocular is very clear and crisp. I taken several pictures under several different conditions and light. It is always the same, blurry pictures.

    I have the same problem. All pictures are a total blur. I expected the product to do at least what the literature on the box says it will do. The original selling price was $80.00. What I have is not worth $8.00.

    Same problem with blurry pictures. Nothing seems to work. I would expect it to do as least what the information on the box says it will do. I purchased it for the camera capabilities so it is totally useless to me.

You have to take pictures maybe 20 feet away. You may want to test the scope by plugging the camera into your computer and take pictures so they're instantly downladed on your PC so you can get an idea of whatthe range is. Yes, this camera is cheap, but what can you expect for less tha $15

I bought the 10x25 camera binoculars and only one lens will focus using the center dial. Its almost like the other one needs to be focused at the eye piece itself. The pictures are not clear and are...

It is common for binoculars to have one independently focusable eyepiece.  If one eyepiece can be rotated, then that is the case.
If that is the case, focus through the one that DOES NOT rotate using the center control until you get a sharp image on that side.  Then rotate the eyepiece on the blurry side until the blurry side is sharp.  If you succeed at this, from henceforth the center control will focus both eyes adequately

Why are my pics so blurry?

Because of the magnification any unsteadiness in your hands is multiplied. Try to brace your elbows or put the camera on something steady. About 1/2 second after you click the button is when you hear a little beep. That's the moment you ahve to hold the camera very still.

Also, I wear glasses with a strong correction, I get better pictures when I take them off to focus the binoculars.

The binoculars are out of collimation (alignment). It is a problem that requires a repair center. In order to properly adjust them they need to be taken apart and aligned using a collimator. Not something one does at home. If they are under warranty send them back. If not a proper repair will cost more than a replacement.

No contents with binoculars

The best solution is to return to Kmart & get your money back as fast as you possibly can! I have a set of these that we just got & the binoculars are great but the pictures are HORRIBLE, 9 times out of 10 the picture isn't even what you're aiming at! I have yet to be able to get a picture to be non blurry let alone of what your aiming at!!!
Good Luck!

this is caused by the unit not being held still enough. try taking a picture with the unit on a solid surface of an object at least 50 feet away if still blury contact bushnell at 800-423-3537 and obtain information on how to send into their service department.

Program can't find pictures

If you take batteries out before you download them you loose the pictures. Catch 22

To take morre than 20 pictures, set the camera for low res (Lr).

To clear what you already have, you must push S button when
CA appears on the screen.

I hope this helps.

Not taking pictures

Please provide more information:
Have you loaded the software on the computer?
Is the software compatible with your computer operating system?
Does the computer recognize the binoculars when you connect them?
Lastly, an easy way to find out if it is the binoculars or a compatibility/connectivity issue with the computer is to use a memory card (rather than the binocular's internal memory) and then try to read the card independent of the binoculars.
