Luv the Bloggie - BUT

 

The Bloggie is a great little cam/corder!

The rebate isn't worth the paper it's written on! I submitted all the required documentation within the required time-frame a never received my rebate. Called the 800 number when the rebate became over due, got the runaround and was told to wait...

Its Ok

 

Very good camera with amazing quality but needs work on the usb part of it. Oh and since i put a video file into the usb part it broke :(

Amazing quality overall, easy to use, and good sound recording

when you put any other type of video files from your computer into the camera, the camera breaks and does not turn on

Very simple cam

 

I have had 100 buck digital cams with video option that are non HD that took better video

Very simple Usb plugs to virtually any pc and plays, videos, native mp4 files ; Seems very simple very easy for anyone to take photos

1080p is only good for stationary shoots. if you so much as walk with the cam while in 1080p its blurry enough to make u dizzy because it only supports 30fps ; 720p works as stated its sports 60fps and looks ok ; All 30fps modes on this cam are horrid...

This camera works great and can focus from 4" to infinity and everything in-between. I own both the "Bloggie Touch" and this "Bloggie." I would definitely recommend this to a friend or anyone who wants to shoot video or pictures of things up close,...

Sony 4GB HD Bloggie® Camera, Black

 

From little use I've had, the product seems intuitive and easy to use. I am hoping the fact that it's a Sony will mean it's more resilient than other hand cams I've owned. Satisfied with initial testing

Sony 4GB HD Bloggie® Camera, Black

 

Just received the refurbished Sony Bloggie. Haven't had an opportunity to really use it but from my brief testing I believe that one downside to the Bloggie is it's microphone is not very good.
