Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    "Attractive, lightweight, and small; full use of 3-inch screen for shooting; autofocus macro; captures stills while shooting video; simple to use."

  • THE BAD

    Autofocus can be slow; no memory expansion; no HDMI cable included; no mic or headphone jack; weak software.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    "If you're looking for a simple shoot-and-share minicamcorder, the Bloggie Touch is a good option--that is, as long as you understand its limitations."

Great for it's size and great for simple videos.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I haven't used it too much yet, but so far I love it. It has really good quality. It's easy to use. Very simple to upload the videos on my PC. Pocket size to take anywhere and pullout anytime and start recording.

I hear a lot of people saying that the focus takes a while, but when it does, the picture is great. I found out if you start to take a photo, it will go ahead and focus. Then you can start recording with a better quality right away, so you don't have to wait for it to focus by itself.

Another concern from other reviews was the lack of flash. I think it is not a problem if you are using it for a camcorder and not a camera. The device is small and the battery can be sucked dry with a flash left on while recording.

Great product

This product is great because it will record in HD1080. It's small enough to fit in your pocket. It's made by Sony. It's very easy to use. Good quality pictures. I must say, The only negative is that it doesn't have a flash. The video comes out pretty good. Don't expect it to be the same quality as a high dollar camcorder but for the price, and the convenience of the size, I don't think you can go wrong. It also comes with the editing software built into the camera so when you plug it into a USB it automatically downloads it to your computer. Very easy to use. I recommend this product to anyone.

Great little camera/camcorder for preserving/sharing memories and travels

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Have only had it for a couple of days and am very pleased with this tiny little camera with touchscreen.

POSITIVES:
Took pictures and video indoors and outdoors on a rainy and a sunny day. Convenient. Zoom works well.
Played back very well on both my laptop and, even, more vivid, on my 1080p TV with the HDMI connection.
Stills grainy through HDMI, but perfect through USB connection.
Very compact and lightweight.
Pretty quick charge through USB connected to laptop.

NEGATIVES:
Does not perform too well under poor lighting conditions.
No flash.
Takes a second or so to auto focus when moving across objects far and near. Careful what's in the "center" as that where the focus is.
Not so great "zooming" while shooting for focus. Touchscreen not the most convenient for zooming either while shooting. Best NOT to zoom while shooting video.
Little distortion at the left and right edges on large widescreen HD TV.
Upgraded to v1.05 which improves touchscreen, BUT VERY NOISY shooting video 1080p. No problems shooting 720p, still providing excellent video quality through HDMI.


UNTESTED:
YouTube and Facebook uploads.

OVERALL SUMMARY:
Clearly a nice little camera for preserving and sharing memories. Great for travel. Not for professional quality photography, but what do you expect for the price and convenience.

Excellent Device! Recommended for families.

We bought this camcorder about a week before the birth of our second little girl. We had a bulky handheld when our first girl was born and throughout her first 2 years of life. We knew there had to be a better way to take video of our family that was high quality and simple to take.

The Bloggie is the perfect device for this solution. If you're looking for a device that is compact, easy to use and take great videos this is the camera for you. Every video we've taken, inside and outside, has been crystal clear with great sound quality as well.

The Bloggie's integration with your computer is extremely simple as well. The device itself has an attached USB line that plugs directly into your computer. The process to upload videos to our blog, youtube account and facebook was so simple and exactly why we bought this camera.

My ONLY complaint is that, as far as I've been able to tell, you have no real control over the settings of the camera. Meaning, everything is adjusted automatically, but if you wanted to change the settings in a different lighting you're at the mercy of the camera's "auto-adjust" capabilities. But even still, we've had little issue with this.

Overall I would definitely recommend this device, especially for families with small children. I'm able to pull it out, be filming within seconds and then have the video on our blog within minutes. Definitely a great purchase!

Easy! Powerful! Portable! Makes Sharing Your Life Online a Breeze.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I got a great deal on my Bloggie, and only paid $60 for it. I have never once had to look at the manual because it is so easy to use. Not only is it easy to use while doing pictures and videos, but it is also amazingly easy to transfer those to your comp! It plugs directly into the USB port and you're good to go. Easy peasy! Also, it's totally portable and comes with a great little carrying pouch. I have a Canon Rebel SLR, so I was always having the issue of lugging it around and worrying about breaking it because it was so expensive. The bloggie has 12 megapixels and also takes videos in HD, so it's portable but also takes high quality content. I now carry my Bloggie around everywhere I go and now I'm ready when those impromptu Kodak moments come up! It's got the best of both worlds; small yet poweful.

There are only 2 things I dislike about the Bloggie. The first is that the battery does not seem to last long. But, the Bloggie comes with a plug in charger so that you can charge it in any standard socket. Secondly, there is no light or flash on the Bloggie, so it is sort of useless in the dark. But, those are the only downsides to the Bloggie that I've found. All in all, those are things that I can overlook. But if you want to do a lot of pics or vids at night, I wouldn't recommend the Bloggie for you.

But if you don't mind those two things, then I'd say get the Bloggie. You won't regret it. It's a great little camera, and it makes sharing your life on your social networking sites so easy. Hope anyone who buys it likes theirs as much as I like mine!
