My bloggie stop charging after 6 month


This thing is horrible. Only records for 30 min at a time, even though it has enough space to record 1 hour. Pretty much impossible to replace the battery. You can not expand the battery. LoQuan

Doesn't work


I have to return this item, it won't even turn on for me. It also doesn't keep the charge while its plugged in. The light turns off indicating it should be done charging, but no, it stopped on its own and is still empty. When I try to turn it on, I hold the button for 7 seconds, 30 seconds, a min...nothing. I also learned that you basically charge it for 3 hours, for only 50 min of battery time. I should have bought a regular video cam and not this item!

Worth the $


I got this camera to make YouTub vids. I love this camera! But the speaker is on the front of the camera, so if I am making a video, the actors need to speak up. But, I do have a wireless speaker so it is not so bad. Overall, I love this product a lot! I think it is also a great gift for a teen because they are very tuff on there stuff and this is a tuff camera! Get it!
