Sakar International Logo

Sakar International, the new owners of the Vivitar brand, has rolled out a new line of products that include digital, underwater and video cameras as well as digital SLR camera lenses. Also introduced was a battery charger that accommodates over 300 different camera and other lithium ion batteries.

The products are Sakar’s first Vivitar-branded SKUs since Sakar acquired the well-known but affordable brand last year in a bid to broaden its camera offerings.

The new Vivitar-branded products include the V8400P 8.1MP digital underwater camera ($130), the DVR840XHD camcorder ($250) and the V8025 8MP digital camera ($99). Its new line of SLR lenses include an 85mm F1.4A spherical lens for portraits plus 500mm and 800mm f/8.0 mirror lenses. There’s also a 650-1300mm preset lens with a universal mounting ring (T-mt) that allows the lens to fit practically all SLR cameras manufactured since 1960.
