Small, punches above its weight, issues in low light and audio.

  • Excerpt: "...large. The menu system is typical Sony - simple, intuitive and very easy to use. Settings are simple to understand; this is especially the case if you need to drop the resolution from 1080p to 720p and save space on the card. Needlesstosay, after the test runs, we took the unit to New York for the real thing. In low-light, pouring rain from the start this camera performed to an excellent standard. We took bus tours, boat trips and spent nights ...
  • Pros: Simple to use, great picture quality, good battery life .
  • Cons: Audio in the wind, screen - auto - rotation issues .

  • Summary: Got one for Christmas. Was immediately impressed by how easy to pick up and use this camera is. Perfect for slipping in your pocket and pulling out and shooting within seconds. BUT as soon as I played back any clips I'd made, there is a constant loud motor noise on all recordings. Seems obvious to me that the poorly configured on-board mic is recording the internal sound of the constantly (and slowly) auto focusing lens motor. Took it back to Jessops.
  • Pros: Couldn't be more intuitive to use.
  • Cons: Loud motor noise renders the audio of all recordings useless. Don't expect customer care from Sony.

Poor Product

  • Summary: This product is pretty poor. When you record anything it comes out either pretty grainy or with bad color. It does nothing in low light. Would not keep this product.

I still use this!

  • Summary: I purchased this in 2010. I wanted something light and something I could use. I have limited use of my arms. I can't lift a camera to my eye to snap a picture and hate having others take pictures for me. After testing out something similar, I found this on Amazon and it is actually lighter. It's small and light and I can easily hang the loop around my wrist and go. I've gotten a lot of good pictures with this, especially outdoor photos.

  • Summary: Perfect Camera. I take it everywhere. If you need a cam that is small but has the options of a large one. This is the cam for yoU!

Great pocket Camcorder, glad I made the purchase.

  • Summary: This is an awesome camcorder. Takes photos and great video. Its easy to use and great for a novice. Although this camera is not made anymore, its worth the hunt to find if you can find it. I wish it had different lighting exposures so that you can film in darker settings, but as long as you have good lighting you'l be fine. It does so much more than most pocket camcorders and even has optical zoom!

Best HD for the Money

Victor, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this camera when my son was born. Wanted full HD, but didn't want to pay Full HD price. This camera records is stunning 1080p. It is very small, can easily fit in your back pocket. It starts up quickly, which is great for capturing moments with children. It also takes great pictures. It has a built in USB adapter, so you can plug the camera directly into your computer for easy uploads.

I love my bloggie!

Francisco, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: I had the hardest time trying to decide between the Sony Bloggie and the Flip. i don't regret getting the bloggie and i'm extremely happy with the job it does. of course it isn't some fancy recording camera but i like the job it does with the features it has built in. It doesn't make miracles in dark places but it takes whatever light is available and kinda brightens up a picture on it's own. neat i'd say.
