Updated Review: Acceptable noise, touchy wi-fi, Crisp Video

Steplander, Amazon
7 March 2013
  • Summary: Updated Review: On the surface this looks like a nice camera. Compact, HD video and stills, and Wi-Fi connectivity to convenient sharing sites. There is good and bad. I originally felt there was a lot more BAD with this camera, but after additional testing I have given this camera a better rating.

Smooth and Easy to Use

Roxx, Amazon

  • Summary: When I opened the Sony Bloggie Live package and turned it on, I actually said, "whoa." I could tell this was going to be an entirely new level of quality. Here are a few features: * 12.8MP still camera * 1080p supported (also 720p) * Built-in USB port * Built-in mini-HDMI port I use my recorder sometimes for trips and events, but mostly live music recording. For this, I think the Bloggie will do well. My favorite thing about it is the stabilization.

Very good

  • Summary: This is a great camera. It's exactly like a cell phone. It's a touch screen, has Facebook,YouTube, and other social networks. There's no batteries or SD card needed. To charge it press a button, and a usb drive comes out to connect into your computer to charge. You get 3 hours of video, but if you turn it off hd you get another 2 hours. You also can take up to over 1000 photos. The only problem is the light.

Falls short

Albert Apuzzi Jr., Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: Cons - embedded memory, battery is not removable, clips are limited in length to 20-30 minutes & Sony restricts to user to broadcasting live through Qik. Eventually the user will need to buy a paid plan from Qik Pros - small and can simultaneously record & broadcast live (via 3g, 4G & wi-fi) at lo res. With my cell I can not upload at one res and save at a higher res but I am not restricted to Qik, it does have a removable battery & expendable memory.

A single-topic review

Mr. Hawlywood "Mr. Hawlywood", Amazon

  • Summary: This is borderline irresponsible -- I don't own this camera, but spent quite a bit of time with one at a store. (I assume I'll own one before too long, or persuade someone to buy one so that I can borrow it.) I have made a living in videography for about twelve years, and have watched Canon and Sony duke it out in the area of pro and prosumer camcorders for over a decade as a result.

A couple drawbacks but I still like it

Danielle, Amazon
16 August 2012
  • Summary: Last year, I was able to try a previous Sony Bloggie product and now this year, they introduced the Bloggie Live. This time it has a touch screen and they say you can instantly load your videos and photos onto the website of your choice. I really like the touch screen feature. I found it really easy to navigate around.

Great little camera.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 May 2012
  • Summary: We have been delighted with the Bloggie. It works really well and uploads quickly and easily. The only complaint that I really had with this camera is that in order to mount it for a sideways video, I will have to have several tripods. If you are looking for a camera that you can use to upload videos instantly, then this one is good for that. But if you are looking for a high quality camera to take still shots with, you may want to keep looking.

Good Camera For It's "Intended Uses"

Jamie Ratliff, Amazon
10 April 2012
  • Summary: I had the original Sony Bloggie, and wasn't very impressed with it. The new Bloggie Live is a big improvement over the original version. The Bloggie takes decent pictures and pretty good video in good lighting conditions. It can fit in your pocket, which makes it useful to have around when taking walks or visiting friends or places.

For the young at heart...

Stephen W. Templar "rexGun", Amazon
26 March 2012
  • Summary: This camera is a great example of high quality Sony construction. Well built, heavy and strong; this camera leaves little to be desired, in terms of quality. As for the actual function and ease of use, that is a different story. I found this device to be difficult to use and annoying. Clearly, I am too old to qualify as the current Sony target market. To put is simply: By the time I had this camera unpacked, I loved it.
