Very frustrating little piece of technology

Amazon Customer "Shookup", Amazon
14 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought it because of the WiFi feature, and yet I can't get it to work. The touchscreen is difficult and takes multiple pressings to get it to respond. It is totally non-intuitive. No instruction manual yet the one I searched and downloaded was 70+ pages long. Really?

Broken API = It doesn't work as advertized

  • Summary: Great little camera with a huge problem. It doesn't connect to Youtube and it doesn't connect to Facebook. I had a chat with Sony customer service, they are aware that the product doesn't work as advertised (It has both the Youtube and Facebook stickers on the camera and on the box).

Beware if streaming

  • Summary: I bought this camera to stream my niece's wedding. It works great for 29 minutes or so, but then stops streaming. Sony's website says that this is to let the camera cool down. [...] So they put in a kludge where they should have fixed the overheating problem instead.

  • Summary: I'm really, really interested in this product from Sony. What prevents me from giving it only 1 star is it actually makes a decent on-the-go camera and camcorder (without optical zoom but complementing a smartphone without wasting the latter's battery life).

Great hardware, but terrible software/firmware

Just a guy, Amazon
1 April 2012
  • Summary: This is a nicely formed still/video camera. It feel good in your hand and the buttons feel high quality. The screen looks nice and the sound is reasonable for such a small device. The software/firmware is absolutely abhorrent.

Stick With Your iPhone or Get a Better Sony Camera

Katherine Chan, Amazon
21 March 2012
  • Summary: The Sony Bloggie Live is a decent portable video camera, however it's definitely not without its flaws. It has a few great features, although it might not be up to the standard that many people have for the "on the go" uploading of photos and videos. The Bloggie itself is actually fairly large.

Many Features, Many Hassles. Overpriced.

C. MacPhail, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: . This pocket video cam is like a souped up version of the Kodak PlayFull , or like a disappointing low-end version of an iPhone camera. Lots of function, but too many drawbacks. The Top 3: * Handling it is constant hassle -- too easy to drop * Touchscreen is balky * Expensive (at over $200) Even...
