    I tried two different units and neither produced a picture that was remotely acceptable. All were blurred, as from motion, not just from defocussing. I returned both units. The binoculars are OK, but you can get binoculars that are just as good for a lot less money. Tne built-in camera is the novel part and it just doesn't work.

    Got this for my Dad for Christmas but cannot give it to him since the camera is so very bad. Everything is fuzzy and black or gray. Even when connected to the PC as a webcam the pictures are distorted and black/gray.

    When downloading pictures, they are fuzzy,blurry and unidentifiyable. This seems to be a common problem. Am ready to return camera unless you can offer a solution.

    All my pictures are fuzzy, blurred or unreconizeable too. I consider the digital camera portion JUNK as reported on other web sites. Call for technical help. There no TECH help avialable since Vivitar has sold out to SAKER till Feb 2009. Am going to return my camera to the store hopefully for a refund.

This is a cheap knockoff of a camera, the maximum quality is 640x480 I can find these for 20 dollars. Its just bad quality there noting you can do about it. you have to buy a better camera, or a better binocular camera.

I have a tasco trail camera, and i need to know what driver i need to install so i can upload the pictures from my trail camera to my laptop

Okay, I spent a lot of time refusing to accept that I couldn't get my tasco trail cam to work with my computer. I did figure it out though, to my relief. Tasco's directions are a little vague, but here it is: turn camera on, don't connect it to usb port, yet. After it turns on, push menu button, now connect it to your usb port. Disregard when it asks about installing driver software. If you follow these steps your computer will recognize it as another drive and ask open folder to view files,etc.

No pictures??

This sounds like the same problem I had. I could not find a solution without losing the photos that I had already taken. Try reseting the camera. In the menu clear all the photos out of memory. If the picture counter doesn't reset you may need to physically kill power to the camera (by pulling out the batteries) this will delete any photos in memory and reset the photo counter. Once you are sure that the memory is empty. Try taking some test photos and reconecting to the computer to see if the software sees the new photos. You may want to delete and reload the camera drivers before you connecting the camera.

I have the same problem as 'Can't acces [sic] mass storage'

Problem is unit will not work with an SD disk over 512MB. For some reason if the SD Card is 1GB or larger you will receive the message the card needs formatting. Verified this after many hours of trying to get 1 and 2GB cards to work. Used 512MB cards or less and the camera works perfectly. Originally got this info from a tech support facility that does support for Bushnell.
