Summary: The camera itself was pretty okay, but the program is very difficult to figure out. Shot the video fine, but when it came time to try and move the video to my computer it was a huge hassle. If you want something easy to use don't get this.
Summary: You just want something like this to come out of the box and work. After I charged it, and went to set up software (set up required even though I have my own video software) I realized that the Mac software was not in the box. I went on line, found where I could download it, did and still it doesn't work. Software is simply stuck.
Summary: This product needs help. It is impossible to learn how to use it. The instructions are impossible to read because the print is too small. I need a magnifying glass to see what the instructions have to say. I wanted to shoot videos and upload them to my computer. No such luck. I could not understand what the instructions were trying to say. I have since put the Sony Bloggie Duo away in its box and put the box away in a desk drawer. There it will sleep forever.
An Expensive Toy: A Sony Bloggie Duo Camera Review

Summary: As a serious photo-hobbyist, I have some interest in using video cameras. The Bloggie duo, unlike other available vid-cams, has two screens for capturing an image/video which comes in handy for self portraits. 4 GB of memory records approximtely 2 hours of 1280x720 video. In addition to the Bloggie, the box includes a USB extention cable, wrist strap, and documentation. I began by plugging the Bloggie Duo into my PC to install the software.
