Content:

South African born this Tomas has been shooting pictures of pretty girls since the early 1980s, and the collection here at Viv Thomas Video spans a good portion of that time up until present day. In total, there are over 1210 photo galleries and over 1085 videos available here so far and updates are coming frequently. It looks like new additions are coming to the video section with anywhere from 2 to 10 days in between while the photo section is growing far faster at a rate of one new gallery every other day. Although it's nice to see new updates coming this frequently, I did find it a little bit unusual that the photo section was growing so much faster on a site that, at least ostensibly, focuses on video

The Viv Thomas Video collection focuses on well known nude and adult models like Sophie Moon and Eve Angel, but there are also plenty of models here that you may not have seen elsewhere before. The gals are mostly American and European and approximately in the 18 to 30 year old range. Over 700 different models are featured here in solo posing, masturbation, lesbian, leg and foot fetish, and hardcore scenes. The action is shot in a variety of indoor and outdoor locations including many very beautiful and exotic destinations like beaches, tropical forests, and sunlit prairies. This photo materials fall into categories for lesbian action, leg fetish, busty models, hardcore action, top models, "blast from the past" or retro porn, and "hot babes" which seems a bit nonspecific. The flicks fall into lesbian, hardcore, solo, behind-the-scenes, and "special exclusive" categories. I was unable to determine exactly what qualified a scene to be entered into the special exclusive video category.

While the talent and effort that goes into the materials here is definitely impressive and the videos and photos are consistently well shot with nice colors, crisp clarity, and perfect lighting, I was a bit surprised to see that the materials here aren't HD or high resolution. The top-quality photos are just 1280 pixels on the long side while video quality tops out at 852 x 480 pixels, 2000 kbps. The quality level of the videos and photos here is by no means bad, it's just not in line with the other high quality photography sites I have visited recently and I found that to be a bit of a surprise.

Features & Navigation:

The Viv Thomas Video collection, both on the inside and on the outside tour pages, has a very clean and neat look with a mostly white layout and elegant gold graphical highlights. The tour pages are basically a copy of the inside of the site, and potential members can check out virtually the entire available collection and members' area before spending a dime.

The main sections of the site are the video and photo pages along with an extra section full of DVDs, a model index, and a favorites tool. The site doesn't offer any basic search tools, but it does employ a tag system. This can actually be a bit frustrating, because you have to browse through the collection to find a set were seen that matches what you want to see before you can search for it. For example, if you want to find scenes that take place outdoors, will have to find an outdoor scene and then click the outdoor tag found on its page. A simple keyword search box would go a long way here, as would some way of searching the model index which is currently only affordable in alphabetical order or by model rating.

One area where Viv Tomas Video definitely stands out is the access options for the videos. These flicks are offered in your choice of widescreen or regular screen and come in three different quality levels for each. You can even choose whether to download the video in a full length file or in clips. Streaming is supported with all of the same options as the downloadable files.

Conclusion:

Overall, Viv Thomas Video offers an excellent collection of videos and photos but could still use some changes and improvements. I'd like to see a much easier and more user-friendly way of searching the materials here, and it certainly wouldn't hurt to bump the quality level and size of the materials up to be in line with other similar sites. Still, what's here is definitely not to be missed for anyone who enjoys high quality softcore and XXX action, and a membership is more than worth the asking price.
