    not the best, but good enough

    Posted

    I got to play around with this one in the Best Buy store before i bought it and i got to say that im happy with the buy although I could have saved $30 if I would've bought it online (sony.com). takes great image quality w/out being over pixelated and MP4 HD video quality. what win me over compared to all other pocket camcorders i saw was that it had a double screen in front & back and a built-in LED light. PROS: so easy to use and figure out, simple design, very sleek, came w/ the wrist strap, an extra 2'' LCD screen, built-in light, built-in recharge battery, built-in USB arm, LCD screen rotates, very good audio quality, Face Detection technology, SteadyShot image stabilization, great for vblogging since you can properly position yourself right. CONS: price could have been lowered, only has 4GB memory, memory is not expandable (no memory card slot), only allows up to 2 hrs. of video recording (would recommend transferring your videos in your computer at the end of the day on the days you use it), battery runs out fast during decent amount of use but the 'external backup USB power supply' i bought from sony.com helps alleviate this problem.

    Greatest Exchange/Purchase Ever!

    I first purchased a Tablet from Best Buy online and the quality of the device's video/pics that I was looking for wasn't there so I went to a Best Buy location and traded it in for a Sony Bloggie Duo. The double screens is what sold me right off the back. I needed to make video recordings of myself, and me being able to watch myself as I recorded was a great must-have feature. I like how I'm able to take pics during a video recording and switch between screens with the ease of pressing a button. The Sony Bloggie Duo is light, compact, mobile, and attractive. I love the many options that's available for capturing Pics/video and the simplicity of uploading them to a social network through my computer with the nicely disguised built-in USB. By far, this was one of my best purchases ever.

    Not a good camera for the money

    I have unfortunately had this video camera for two months, after numerous attempts to transfer the videos I took with it to a DVD, I have finally given up, My cell phone takes better videos. I finally decided to try to use the HDMI cable to just watch the videos I took with it and found that I couldn't even do that without a special HDMI cable. I would not advise this to be a camera that you would use for family vacation videos. Its just not user friendly enough for me. Unfortunately I am stuck with it now. Thankfully its not the most expensive lesson l have had to learn. Since I cant return it now, it will probably end up on ebay. The user manual hasn't been very helpful either. My biggest issue is with the transfering Video to DVD.

    It's got a great concept and eveything, but quality just isn't there. Almost felt like they had the idea down, but gave up on quality. Audio was horrible cause it's mono. Camera could probably yield a slightly better qualty on it. I returned it cause it's not the best vlog cam out there honestly. I decided to pick up a Flip Ultra HD still even though Cisco decided to pull out of the business. I just like how it captures the video and everything.

    When videoing, yes you can turn camera up or sideways, however, it took some time to understand how to download, or even view straight from camera to monitor, so you would not be viewing video sideways. Otherwise, excellent product for my use! Two sided video taping is great for creating presentations!

    very bad auto focus

    The auto focus is not very good at deciding what is worth focusing on, except if objects are very close - and there is no way of telling what part of the picture should be in focus. - Marc

    I love my blogger I bought it to record YouTube videos and it has certainly served its purpose. Love the dual display makes solo recording a breeze and the HD quality can be changed as well as still pics. Nice For The price.

    Screen impossible to see in direct sunlight. Cannot find how to print pictures when connected to computer. Or print in any other method for that matter.

    Good camera for money but software needs work--overall I would say it is a 5 out of 10 for me.
