"Great for amateur videographers"4.0 starson by tonytx42
Pros: The super-responsive touchscreen is great, shoots HD video, really easy to use right out of the box.
Cons: The microphone isn't spectacular, and neither is the zoom. Silly name.
Summary: This is the first video camera that I've ever owned, and I think it's a really good one. I wanted something really simple to use, and after perusing the FlipCam selection, I chose the Bloggie instead. I'm glad I did. For my purposes (recording videos of my friends, family, and dog) this is perfect. It's REALLY easy to use, shoots really high-quality video, and is a little smaller than my cell phone, so it fits in my pocket. The included software is decent (also user-friendly), but when I upload videos to YouTube, I just use the website instead of the Sony software.
This is a really great camera for anyone who just wants to shoot simple, higher-end video without too much complication or fuss. I love my Bloggie.
