Vivitar is a computer technology company that manufactures digital cameras, digital video recorders, dash cams, smart cameras, speakers, headphones and earbuds, webcams, telescopes and microscopes, mobile chargers, tripods, and more.

Vivitar was founded way back in 1938 under the name Ponder and Best. They first imported and sold German photo equipment before including cameras and other related hardware from Japan after the second World War.

More recently, in 2006, the company was purchased by Syntax-Brillian Corporation. After they filed for bankruptcy, it prompted Syntax-Brillian Corporation to sell off the brand name and intellectual property rights to Sakar International in 2008.

Vivitar's main website is located at

Vivitar provides technical support for their products through an online support website:

Vivitar Driver Download

Vivitar doesn't provide a way to download device drivers for their hardware, so the only way to get drivers directly from Vivitar is to contact them through their support page:

Visit Vivitar Support for Drivers

However, while you can do it that way, it's best to first visit the specific product page for the device in question and then use the "Contact Support" link. Going this route automatically includes the product name in the email, which will speed things up while talking with their support team.

Getting drivers directly from Vivitar is the best way to go (just as it is with drivers from any manufacturer), but if you'd rather try a different method you could use a free driver updater tool to search your computer for outdated or missing Vivitar drivers and install the ones you need.

See this list of several other places to download drivers if the resources above don't help.

If you're new to updating drivers, check out my guide on How To Update Drivers in Windows for some easy to follow directions.

Vivitar Product Manuals

As with Vivitar driver downloads, there aren't any direct links to product manuals on their website. However, I'm sure you can request one by contacting support:

Visit Vivitar Support for Manuals

Note: Product manuals are usually in the PDF format.

Before calling Vivitar technical support, I highly recommend reading through my Tips on Talking to Tech Support.

Additional Vivitar Support Options

If you need support for your Vivitar hardware but haven't been successful contacting Vivitar directly, I recommend trying to reach out to them through their official Twitter or Facebook page.

Also see Get More Help for information about contacting me on social networks or via email if you need support with your Vivitar hardware and haven't had luck with one of the more official routes above.

I've gathered as much Vivitar technical support information as I could and I frequently update this page to keep the information current. However, if you find anything about Vivitar that needs updated, please let me know.
