Summary: I got this factory refurbished for $60 and I really like the fps rate and the visual quality. This thing picks up sound really well even little noises you hardly notice which makes videos more life like. You can only upload clips onto youtube or facebook or pc files that are mp4 so no dvd making although it does have a connector wire for hd tvs.
Bloggie: easy to use, pretty good video, not so good battery life
7 November 2012
Summary: I bought this product to go to see a comedian and tape his performance. The battery life was supposed to be 2 hours but it stopped after 45 minutes, even though it was fully charged. The fact my unit was a refurbished one I don't know if that is a factor. The Bloggie is extremely easy to use point-and-shoot handling, uploads to the computer easily, and playback is simple.
Summary: I bought the bloggie to take videos of my lesson kids riding horses so they can see themselves and it takes great video. The only problem I have is sharing the videos, it takes forever to upload them and you have to use the sony software which is sub-par..
Summary: So just as a caveat I have been using FLIP cameras for quite a while when the Bloggie became available for Vine. Excited that I could get my chance to play with one I was ecstatic when it arrived. The unit is slightly larger than a Flip camera, has more buttons and features as well as a larger screen. These are all pluses. The awkwardness comes in where the button placement is for the ON/OFF and the STILL CAMERA buttons.
Summary: I read the reviews regarding this device on many sites and I think a lot of people were expecting more than what they paid for. My biggest concern were the reviews pertaining to the Bloggie working with a Mac. I'm happy to say that Sony had the software available at their site. All I did was download it, plug in the device and there it was. No hassles whatsoever.
Summary: I love my bloggie! I'm really happy I purchased it. I use it to make youtube videos. Mostly reviews and vlogging. It's great because it has the outer camera so I can record myself easily. There are a few things that I'm not a fan of. There is a slight buzzing sound when video is played. It's not horrible, but if you're not talking you can hear it. There is no cover over the lens. I put it in a case so it won't get scratched.
Excerpt: This camera was used for my husband's online public speaking class. I have to say I was impressed with the quality of the video. It does take pictures, but unless you are out in a well lit area they will not turn out well. The battery stays charged for an extended period of time. It's extremely easy to use and post things to Facebook, YouTube, etc. This would be a great camera for a blogger (hence the name) or someone who likes to post videos online.
