Summary: I like the camera because it is handy. I have the DUO, which makes a huge difference. Being able to make a video while being able to see it too is wonderful. It is a mediocre videw inside the home with not enough lighting but it serves the purpose of family gatherings, children etc. If you think you will get wonderful footage out of it, use a proper camcorder.
Summary: This is a very conveniant camera/ camcorder, just a little hard to use. The camera button on the side is a little awkward and hard to operate, miss out on some great picture oppurtunities because of that. Other than that a great item.
Summary: This is my second Bloggie and I had the first one for quite a while before I began to appreciate having a camcorder that is about the size of a cell phone. Was driving home one day and witnessed a horrible traffic accident then remembered that I had my Bloggie in the glove box of the car. I recorded the events after the accident and later watched it on the news and found that my videos were just as good as those on the evening news.
One of best cameras in world (when you dont have money of course xD)

Summary: Well I bought this camera because I'm gonna go to a Dream Theater's concert in Phoenix, so I bought this VideoCam cause it has a good quality like a video of 1800 x 720 px and 60 Frames per second. The only thing that I dislike of this camera is the ilumination of LCD video, it looks too dark but when you import the videos to your computer it looks great!
Great durable 1080p camera for an unbeatable price.

Summary: The best thing about the PM5k Bloggie is the rotating lens. This is the main reason I was interested in this model. The rotating lens made this model very versatile as far as camera placement. I do wish that it had a brighter view screen and wider lenses but for $50, I can't complain too much. I've put my Bloggie on several torture test and it has passed with flying colors. I didn't realize how durable this camera was.
Summary: I bought this camera as a slightly used model for $40 + 5 shipping. It came with 4gb memory and a 360 degree lens. The quality of the images is good, the audio/video are good, not great. For $40, I am satisfied. I have brought this with me on hikes and on local sightseeing tours ... the rotating lens is helpful. If you keep your expectations reasonable ... I think you will be satisfied.
