Summary: Bought this thing in January. Used it for 2 different sessions. The shooted video was quite good. Audio wasn't great, but I use a separate device for that, I don't need its audio recording capabilities. The video was more than decent. But when I tried using it again, It just wont turn on, i press the button and see the "bloggie" logo on screen, and as soon as I lift my finger from the button, it shuts off.
Summary: The quality is great and I like the delay for taking pictures so that I have time to stabilize the camera. I also like the built in USB hub. My dislike with this product is that when I go to edit this video (I am using windows movie maker and I am not too tech savy) the video either ends up really small or sideways a.k.a. not good for viewing. The quality is 1080p but the video comes out so small I have to squint to see peoples faces.
Summary: Maybe it works fine with macs, but I have a PC and it absolutely refused to upload my media. I called customer service and they said that was a common problem (really? It's main selling point is ease of sharing!) so I downloaded the other software and that didn't work either. I had to return it. Very disappointed.
Summary: Personally I own a Flip video camera, but I used a friend's Bloggie tonight to download some video she took for me. The video quality was good but, for one thing my non techie friend could NOT figure out how to get the video off herself and instead I had to go pick it up. Second, it's not intuitive at all as far as how to offload video to your computer.
Summary: I bought this specifically to record band rehearsals and performances. I think I might take it back because it is missing a couple of essential features, although it is quite easy to use and has surprisingly good audio quality. When I started looking for a handheld camcorder to record music rehearsals and performances, I quickly narrowed down the field to the Sony Bloggie, the Zoom Q3 and the Zoom Q3 HD because of their listed attributes and the great reviews on these...
Summary: It has software to make it super easy to upload to facebook but the software doesn't work right. You can still upload pictures and videos one at a time because it conveniently connects right to your computer but it is not quite as easy as it is meant to be. It is nice that it is small, just like a phone. It has minimal buttons for ease or confusion depending on the person.
Summary: Disclaimer: I am reviewing a unit that I received for free through the Vine program. Well we were excited and used our new Bloggie for a few days. We recharged it a few times, and it worked fine. But then something happened and the battery stopped holding a charge. So now it's useless. It works if it's actually plugged in, but otherwise it only works for a few seconds before going dead. Recharging over and over again doesn't help.
