I bought and started using the Bloggie for my son's Christmas Program. Very easy to set up and use. Set on 1080p, 30 fps, and shot several videos. I downloaded them to my computer, and then troubles began. My computer is 5 years old and the graphics can't keep up with the HD video! So I tried changing to 720p, 60 fps for the next time, and the video output on the computer is still choppy. So, if you have an older computer, you won't be able to fully utilize the HD capabilities of the Bloggie. AND, if your video is more than 1 minute, the file is too big to upload to YouTube - so you can't share the video with friends on YouTube.
