Decent camera, unnecessary software...7/31/2013
The Bloggie itself is a decent enough little camera for the price. Neither the video or picture quality is out-of-this-world good, but I really don't expect it to be at this price-point. Video is definitely the stronger-suit of the Bloggie. At 720p (1280x720; 30fps) the videos can look very good, though they can also be very dark in low-light conditions (and the built-in light doesn't help a whole lot, unless you like shadows). The Bloggie also has image stabilization, which is an almost necessary feature for this type of camera. Videos definitely look better when they're not shaking everywhere. I like the camera. It feels solid and takes decent video. The software is a take-it-or-leave-it affair, and I guess I should be thankful that Sony at least left me the option to still be able to navigate to the photo and video folders and be able to copy, cut, paste and delete as I see fit.
