I have a Vivitar V3800 camera that we have had for years, nice film camera. However, my daughter is now using it for a college class and I cannot find the user manual. I absolutely have had no luck finding one or getting a copy, even vivitar does not reply. Can anyone assist please?
I have the manual and can photocopy it for you if you send a legal sized self-addresses envelope for it. You could try www.freestylephotobiz.com and ask them about getting one. I just ordered 20 of the Vivitar from them for my highschool photography class.

Vivitar is just a name a company will buy to stick on their item. Someone make the camera and put the Vivtar tag on it, like Sears does. Vivitar never had a web site with their instruction manuals, even for their digital cameras. It's a real mess for those used cameras. Here is a manual for "A" vivitar film point and shoot. Basically they are all the same. Some have fancier lenses or bigger zooms. That is why they are called "point and shoot". Plus they are 20+ years old. http://www.butkus.org/chinon/vivitar_cameras/vivitar_cameras.htm
An SLR (Single Lens Reflex) camera for film enthusiasts. Exceptional quality and timeless design make this camera a truly desirable item for any professional or amateur photographer. Supplied with a high quality 50mm f1.7 or28-70mm f3.4 Vivitar lens (shown with 50mm lens).http://www.anreview.com/
Just about every 35mm SLR ever made fits that description.
Three that will more than suit your needs are http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Film-Cameras/1689/FM10.html http://promaster.com/products/products.asp?product=5364 http://www.vivitar.com/products/8/professional-and-slr/34/v3800-50
This camera has been called the finest 35mm SLR ever produced, but it's probably overkill for a class: http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product/Film-Cameras/1799/F6.html
No. Vivitar currently does not make any digital cameras with interchangeable lenses. They do make a film camera with interchangeable lenses: http://www.vivitar.com/products/8/professional-and-slr/34/v3800-50
Depending on the mount on the lens, it may fit a number of digital cameras from another manufacturer. For example, if the lens has a Nikon mount then it will fit onto every Nikon digital SLR model, though perhaps not all features will work with every model.
I will be more happy to help you. However can you please verify the exact model name of your Vivitar digital camera. I will do my best to provide you the user manual with all te information you've needed.
Sorry, not to reply with a resopnse for your issue, hope you have resolved it in the last year. I really need a copy of the users manual, do you still have the camera and if so can I get a copy it. Thank you..
