Great Pictures, a Few Challenges
I really like the picture quality that I'm getting with this camera, and I appreciate how close I can get to the subject and stay focused. However, I ran into a couple of problems. The way that the USB pops open, I am not able to insert the Bloggie into my Dell computer's USB ports. I tried a USB extension and the computer would not recognize the camera. So I had to download video to my MacBook Pro and then transfer to my desktop system to try to edit video. Windows Live did not work for edit...View full Review

So I had to download video to my MacBook Pro and then transfer to my desktop system to try to edit video. Windows Live did not work for editing--an error message kept popping up. Maybe because I had shot in wide format? Next I tried editing with Adobe Premiere Elements (newest version), but the video became jerky. I finally had to edit with iMovie on my little MacBook Pro laptop (small screen to work on). Kind of a bummer that I can't use my desktop to edit. For those of you who were concerned about Mac compatibility, skip the proprietary software dpwnload and just use iMovie. It works fine.

Sony Decieves Once Again.
1) Sony lies about 12.8 Megapixel - You can take a 4:3 picture 12.8 MP but if put on the better settings like 16:9, 8MP. DO NOT BUY! 2) Sony lies about 4 hour 1080p recording. -You can record at 720p for 2-4 hours. You can only record 1:22 minutes for 1080 HD. Oh and it is not 1080 60P but 30P DO NOT BUY! 3) I bought this and it is supposed to come with the $20 PSN gift card. (2 days after received and still awaiting it). DO NOT BUY!!!

The size and weight of the camera permits it to be carried in one's pocket with little to no damage possible as it has only 2 buttons.
I use the video camera for my daughter's piano lessons. The sound and the picture quality is good.
Great camera if you want a simple, quick and easy to use camera for shooting and uploading. Auto-focus sometimes gets slow. I would give it a million stars if it had flash and better auto-focus. The case for it looks like a jewelry box! It has a very elegant look and is attractive. It works perfect for me because I don't use it in the dark, so I don't really miss the flash. Personally, I'd give it 5 stars.
This is a great little camera for price. I have a more expensive HD camera that I use for my semi-pro shots but often times when I am out and about in casual situations I have wished for a simple point and shoot HD camera to capture those special moments with my family and friends. Well the Bloggie Touch fits that purpose perfectly and at this ridiculously low price you just can't go wrong It does not do well in low light situations. The picture is somewhat grainy but usable and the focus is not very fast but I am willing to live with those cons for the price and convenience.
Very handy and happy with the buy.
Used it on the beach..zoom is limited..so not so great..small and ligt fits in pocket. Only use for quick shots or filming.not really omended if you want something professional looking
Nice camera to have!
Hard to use touchscreen. Not enough detail in instructions.
I keep using it but is kind of a nightmare if you are going to record yourself...not every tripod fits. No flash and figuring out on how to charge it is a major pain....doesnt has any other way to charge, just plugging it to the PC. I love the size and that is not heavy, i can take pictures...but doesnt have a flash...so you are limited.
My first use with this camera was at a wedding. At dinner the night prior, I made some shots indoors and realized there was no flash. You could hardly see the pictures. Made pictures and videos at the outdoor event at 5:30 pm with great lighting and the outcome was wonderful. Made some video indoors at the reception and you would have thought I made them in black/white. Very dissapointed as I probably would want to use this indoors more often than out.
