It doesn't connect to Youtube and it doesn't connect to Facebook.

Sony has been made aware of the problem--I myself have spent much time with customer support on the phone and online chat.

It's pretty good - a basic but easy to use interface with many options for capturing and storing your pictures and video.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Many people now ignore handheld camcorders because they have them built into their phones, iPods, and other devices, but is this reason enough? I can think of many reasons people may want a dedicated device, so this review doesn't presume that the Sony Bloggie is obsolete simply because "my iPod does the same thing".

The Bloggie Live incorporates WiFi to allow many of the things that make iPod Touch, iPhone, and Android phone so popular - easy sharing. It also does some cool things like transferring your pictures and videos to other phones & iPod by creating a peer-to-peer wireless network using an app. The advantage is that you can selectively transfer 1 or multiple files all in one session rather than sending each by text message/mms/or synching to a computer.

Not everyone is going to have a smartphone with data plan, and the Bloggie offers better resolution and expanded options compared to an iPod touch. I'll examine the performance, the realistic usage of these features, and comparisons in my review here.

__________
Startup
__________
It turns on quickly, within about a second. Autofocus takes about 1-2 seconds for stills, and a bit longer for quick changes in focus length when shooting video. It's nice that with a dedicated button for stills there's no delay when switching from video to stills. You can also shoot stills while recording video.

___________
Touchscreen
___________
The touchscreen is very large, well detailed and color accurate. The problem is the touch part. I often have to hit things 2 or 3 times to get it to register, usually for specific buttons on the screen. Using it to zoom seems ok, though. Usually deliberate presses work better than a quick tap or slide.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I must admit, I have had a compatibility problem with previous Bloggies when I try to plug them directly into an iPad. I keep getting "Not enough power" error messages. So I can't upload my photos to my iPad. This mystifies me since the Bloggies have their own power source. So my two previous Bloggies have been relegated to the back shelf - vacation wise. You could imagine my excitement when I first learned about this WI-FI Bloggie! I had to get it. But would it link to the iPad via WI-FI?

I downloaded Sony's iPad app: PlayMemories Mobile app and waited for the Bloggie Live to arrive. After a few false starts, I finally got the two to communicate (BTW: BE SURE to change from LUN Multi to Single or it won't work!!!). Once the PlayMemories app recognized the Bloggie it immediately listed all of the test photos I took that morning. I chose the Import All feature and one by one the pictures transferred to the iPad. After that, I simply connected the iPad to my Mac and transferred them once again.

Why the two step transfer? Since the Bloggies only have internal flash memory (no memory card option), once it gets filled up (while on vacation) you are out of luck - no more pictures can be taken. But now, I simply upload all the photos to my iPad, wipe the Bloggie clean and start all over again the next day taking my vacation pictures. Just beware, if you send your 12 megapixel 4128 x 3096 files to the iPad via WI-FI, they will downgrade to 1920 x 1440.

I do not upload photos to the internet or the Cloud, so I couldn't test those Bloggie features. Others will have to comment on that.

I like that there are two different buttons on this camera-one to take photos and another to take video.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
this is my 2nd bloggie camera, the first being the 3D version. that camera was ok, but more of a novelty than a great camera. i was excited to try to the bloggie live to see if sony had made any improvements. the answer? both yes and no.

i'll make this as concise as possible.

what i liked: i was able to quickly get the wi-fi set up, shoot a video, and upload it to youtube in a matter of seconds. it seems that upload speed was much faster on the bloggie live than it was on my ipad.

it has a nice, sleek design. it's also fairly slim, so you could feasibly stash in your back pocket if you needed to.

the menu and interface are much improved over the bloggie 3D. as others have noted, if you have bigger hands/fingers, then you may have some trouble using the touch screen. it's default settings give you the ability to upload to facebook and youtube, so that's a nice feature.

the picture quality seems par for the course. i'm not a high-end camera connoisseur, so most pictures/videos look pretty much the same to me.

what i didn't like: that live streaming/hosting requires yet another new application. i understand there's a free verion of qik (or whatever it's called), but i'm at a point in my life where i just don't need new/more apps. i know they're all the range and everyone's trying to take a piece of that market, but it seems like a lot of extra work.

i also had some issues with the playmemories app, sony's picture hosting site/app (yes, *another* app). i downloaded the app for my ipad because the bloggie live apparently gives the ability to view your videos on your ipad or smart phone. well, i tried and tried and tried to get them to sync, but no dice.

Hey M. Lohrke,

The Qik support is already built into your Bloggie Live. If you have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can use it to quickly and easily set up and access your online Qik.com account. Hope this helps and thanks for posting.
