5 out of 5 eggsBest simple video camera of 2010!

Pros: -Great High definition quality. The 720p at 60p is just amazing
-features are simple and perfect. none of those extra junk features that you don't ever use on other cameras
-the lcd flip feature is just too convenient. Well that's why they named it bloggie, so you can blog
-1080p is awesome, but it's only at's all good though
-I love how you can connect a tripod
-hdmi is a big plus
-easy menu interface
-great camcorder for the price

Cons: not a con, but I wish it was built to charge by a wall outlet, or at least have the usb cable longer. That's all =)

Other Thoughts: I use a 32GB SDHC card Class 6 and works perfect. I hear people get bad results using just a regular SD card. I would recommend using the same card I have or better.

1 out of 5 eggsSony Bloggie

Pros: There is none this is the WORST Camera Sony has produced and I purchased.

Cons: No stabilization when selected.
No low light capabilities.
Very annoying to select settings.
No flash selection.
Very poor voice pick up.
Dont breath when filming, lousy mic picks that up crystal clear.
Unless you have perfect lighting your still shots as well as video will look horrible.

Other Thoughts: Please do not purchase stupidly like I did, I was convinced by salesman that this was the camera for me after I explained what I was looking for. Quite the contrary it was exactly what I didn't want, I threw away 200 bucks and gave camera to my 4yr old granddaughter to play with.
