Excerpt: I bought this camcorder for my husband in 2010 for his birthday. He used it quite a lot especially when our first child arrived in the December of that year. Then it started to gather dust in the cupboard for a while until recently when I dusted it off to gather some film footage for a work project. The look I bought this in violet but research prior to the purchase told me the colour bordered on black so I was happy that it would look OK in my hubby's hands.
Summary: Although the product by itself is alright i would not advise buying from media giant. They don't provide you with all of the accesories that are meant to be in the box such as a usb cable needed for charging and when you try to contact them they ignore your first email, send you a hollow offer of a replacement and then ignore you some more and don't actually send you anything. Rubbish!
Summary: We bought this for my sisters birthday and this went down a treat! I was really impressed by the video quality considering the size of the lens. Apparently the swivelling video head is actually incredibly useful and far less of a gimmick than first thought. Battery life is ample and it was great to see her making her first steps into the world of movie making. This is a pretty cool camera that has the specs to back it up! Great!
Summary: Exactly what I was looking for! So simple to use, so very tactile and excellent pictures too. It screams "Quality" and feels good in the hand. I cannot recommend it highly enough. My only tiny moan is the claim that it records for 2 hours. It does but only in 29 minute chunks. Not a problem at all if used for the purpose intended but I tried to monitor the visitors to our bird table only to find I only had a quarter of the time I hoped for.
Summary: was given a return,,box was opened and no paperwork or instructions in box,,i wonder why it was cheap, just wish this was stated on the description. i;m not realy bothered about the paperwork,,,but i wish it was stated why it was so cheap.. other than that its a realy good small pocket cam would have been 4 stars if i got a sealed box i am very dissapointed that Amazon eu has done this,,as i have bought a lot from them with no problems
Summary: Two things stand out: a/ the viewfinder screen is very weak and although there is a brighter backlight setting you have to set this each time; i.e. it does not stay on that setting; b/ the camera supplied did not have the 360 lens but as I didn't want this particularly I didn't send the camera back for replacement. Otherwise it works well for me.
Summary: I am a student and I bought this for around the house and when we go on holiday. So far it has been brilliant, it is really easy to use, good quality, and good fun! The still photo quality isn't great, but the video quality is more than adequate. The size of the Bloggie is brilliant for me as I can have it in my handbag without it taking up much space or weighing lots. Although people have previously spoken of the poor sound quality I have not experience any problems.
