Color: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The Sony Bloggie Duo is a compact camera which takes both still photos and video. It comes in several nice colors and has dual display screens.

What's in the Box?
* The Bloggie with self-contained memory and battery, and a one year warranty.
* Wrist strap
* USB cable
* Typical consumer electronics paperwork (warranty info, Sony ad, etc.)

The box does not include a hardcopy user manual. When you plug in the Bloggi for the first time, you will be prompted to install the Bloggie software. You will see that the user manual (called the Handbook) is stored on the device. It can be accessed as needed, printed, downloaded, etc. It is about 40 double-sided printed pages.

If you are giving this as a gift, once you remove the outer box, you will find that the inner Sony box is handsome and will look nice to the recipient. It is a black cardboard type box with the Sony logo on top. It hinges open to reveal the Bloggie in a velveteen type compartment.
The Bloggie is very compact, yet carries a lot of features in its small footprint. At 4 ¼" long, a little over 2 ¼" wide and about ½" thick it is about as small as you can get for an HD camera/video recorder. It weighs about 4.9 ounces. The Bloggie is `smart' and knows its orientation, so the display and soft menus will switch between landscape and portrait on the fly as you change how you hold the device.

The menu and keys are intuitive. The main control is a `joystick' type which houses the main `Enter' button and up/down/ left/right controls for various options. Above this are three buttons.

Color: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
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.

As a still photo camera, the Bloggie isn't quite as useful. Still photos have been dark and grainy most of the times that I've used it. Low-light makes it worse, I've never been able to get any particularly good photos out of it. It's decent enough to take some snapshots here and there, but this won't be replacing your dedicated still camera.

The hardware itself feels solid, although a textured surface might have been a better choice than the smooth, shiny finish. The only part I don't feel comfortable about is the pop-out USB connector. You'll probably want to use a USB extension cable with this (a very short one is included with the Bloggie, although if you're plugging it directly into a laptop sitting on a surface, it works, although it takes a good bit of pull to get it out of the USB port). It's convenient, but doesn't feel particularly durable.

As for the much touted software that makes using your Bloggie easier, I have to ask why it's even necessary. Was it really so hard to copy and paste your photos into folders or to upload them to whatever photo services you use?

Color: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love this camera! I just got it yesterday and it only took about an hour to master the set up and charging. I used the online product guide for more detailed instructions since what came in the box didn't really explain things all that well. Every thing about the camera is pretty idiot proof, meaning that I could use it straight out of the box with out too much online help. The online guide is easy to sort through as well and I know this can probably do a lot more than what I plan on using the camera for.

The camera has a nice white finish and is easy to wipe off, it is pretty light and will easily slip into a pocket. I like the carrying strap provided although it doesn't make a big fashion statement in ugly industrial gray. The still pictures are amazingly clear and once I figured out the flash part for lighting, I was equally impressed. I didn't even need the instructions to figure that out. It connects directly to your computer through a dongle or direct USB connection and loads to your preset Windows' picture file. The USB port is really cool since it just pops out after pushing a button. There are setting to allow you to load directly to You Tube or a variety or other sites, but I haven't tried that yet but it looks easy.

Taking short movie clips is where this camera really shines and it does really well both in low light and bright sunshine. I wanted this to capture some dog film and some short interviews and the definition is really amazing. The sound is in mono but extremely clear and records at the perfect level. I ran the camera and hour and half before the battery died. I also didn't use the light function that much since I think that really drains the battery. Overall, if you are looking to take short videos and a few still pictures, this is a great camera to own.
