Excellent camera/video for the price. Easy to Operate, fun to use
7 June 2013
Summary: What a great camera/video recorder this is...super small and easy to operate. I bought my first Sony Webbie about year ago...now I own 3. I first bought this to take on a trip to the Philippines as a backup, it did such a nice job I never took the large video cam out of the case. It has a digital zoom, not too bad if you do not extend it to its maximum.
Summary: For a reasonably cheap camera this is a really handy little thing. The quality is fine, there is no loud buzzy noise so I am quite happy with my purchase. The only down side is the memory card it uses. It's not included and you can only use the Memory Stick PRO Duo that has a slightly different shape than the regular (cheeper) memory cards. I haven't read the instruction manual but I have been able to figure most things out by now.
Summary: This is a good camera, especially if you can get it for $60 or less. The rotating lens lets you hold the camera at many angles as needed. It also has interchangeable batteries, which allow you to keep shooting if one runs out (unlike those that you have to plug in the camcorder to charge the battery). One big drawback (for me at least)is that RECORDING SHUTS OFF AUTOMATICALLY AT 25 MINUTES, regardless of battery or memory left.
Summary: I think that the Sony webbie camcorder is a Significant step below the Sony Bloggie. Since used models of the bloggie are about the same price of the used Webbie models, there is very little reason to consider a webbie oner a Bloggie.
Summary: -This is not for long distance video like at a sporting event. It would work but you shouldnt expect zoom ability to be that good. -Indoor lighting at night makes for acceptable video but not rich real life colors (this is why I give it 4 stars). Very good for day to day videos of kids though. Daytime indoor lighting is sufficient but not as good as being outdoors. -Still pictures are not that good.
