Set the Mode Dial to something other than Auto or one of the Basic Zones. If you select P, Tv, Av, etc., you should be able to see all the menu options.

What does the blue light in the corner of the screen mean


Sorry could not find the exact manual. however you can find it from this one as they ought to be similar
http://www.vivitar.com/files_products/1033/ViviCam_F124_Camera_Manual.pdf

It is called the METERING MENU - three modes (Centre; multi and SPOT). you are set for that spot. you can change that. see page 23

The Metering setting will affect how your camera focuses when capturing an image. Depending on your selection, the camera will be more sensitive to focusing on particular areas in the display and adjust the image color and lighting accordingly.
Center - Averages the light metered from the entire frame, but giving greater weight to the subject in the center
Multi - Used in standard conditions the camera divides and adjusts the settings of the image into several zones for light metering such as complex light conditions, position of subject, brightness, background, direct light and scenes
Spot - Meters the area within the spot point frame at the center of the LCD to set the exposure on the subject in the center of the monitor.


1) Press the M (MENU)/SET button to open the menus for the current mode.
2) Press the LEFT or RIGHT direction control buttons to scroll and select the chosen menu.
3) Press the UP or DOWN direction control buttons to scroll through the menu options.
4) Press the M (MENU)/SET button to select the desired option.
5) A selected option icon will appear on the selected item.
6) Press the LEFT or RIGHT button to select the next menu item. 7) Press the MODE button to exit the menu and return to your previous mode. 23
8) An icon reflecting your selection will display on the LCD screen 9) Remember that this setting will be saved by your camera until you manually change the setting or restore the camera?s default factory settings.

All photos I take have suddenly become blurred on my vivitar Vivicam 8225


The reasons why Photos get blurry might not always be an issue with the lens. Here are a few things you should consider -
1) Check if the Battery of the Camera is fully charged. This can hugely effect the outcome of your pictures.
2) Make sure the Memory Card is not full.
3) Check for the Macro or Normal mode. To do this, simply check the top of the LCD Screen. If you find a "Flower" Icon, then the camera is set into Macro mode. To change this, press the OK/Menu button. Find the Macro menu and press up/down to make Macro Off and Normal (Mountain Icon) to On. The camera is now changed into Normal Mode and a Mountain/Pyramid icon should be there at the top of your screen.
4) Try increasing the resolution. Again press the OK/Menu button and press Right/Left until you find a "Lines" icon. Press the Down/Up arrow to choose the resolution. 8M is the highest. Press OK to confirm.
Note - Higher the resolution, better the picture quality but lesser the number of pictures you can save.
5) Check if there is a Crossed Thunder Bolt icon on the LCD screen. If you find one, the flash has been turned off. To turn it on, press the Up/Thunder Bolt. A Crossed Arrow with an A should appear. This indicates the Camera has been set to auto Flash.

Hope the images get better with these tips. You can always call Sakar International at 877-397-8200
