Vivitar's DVR 790HD offers 3D video recording for $99

Vivitar is making a case for cheap cameras with its two latest devices, the $99 DVR 790HD camcorder and ViviCam VT135.

Vivitar, maker of low-end devices like the 690 HD, announced this week the DVR 790HD, a camcorder capable of recording 3D video.

With 5.1-megapixel sensor and a 4X digital zoom, the DVR 790HD can both record 3D video in 720p at 25fps and play it back on its 2.7-inch preview screen.

In addition to the DVR 790HD, Vivitar also announced the ViviCam VT135, 12.1-megapixel shooter also capable of recording images in 3D. Both devices ring in at a tempting $99, so it shouldn't be much a surprise if the pair are a bit on the cheap side. Still, at that price, the DVR 790HD could serve as a viable starting point for those looking to experiment with 3D recording.
