You need this with Bloggie for landscape view
on July 23, 2013
I recommend that you get one of these or something similar that has flexible legs, which can grab onto something. It is because Bloggie has only one tripod attachment at the bottom--meaning you can only use an inflexible tripod for a portrait image (vertical). If you would like to use a tripod to shoot a landscape image (horizontal), you would need something like this to attach to something. I am using it by mounting it on the back of a chair. However, I have to use velcro belts to keep it steady, or the whole thing would fall easily. The construction of the product is not for a long term use either.
Here is the problem . . . Sony has not fixed the problem with vertical image, which causes the image to be a narrow strip when you start recording with Bloggie in a vertical position. You cannot use this "strip" image for anything (someone posted a review with a video on this problem under Bloggie, and it is still true as of today, 7/13). This means that a normal tripod would be useless.
The following is just an idea because I have not used this product, but for a 2 cents worth . . . : An alternative choice could be a "Pic Stand" (picstand.com), for which I have recently seen a commercial. It is not a tripod. It is just an extendable stick to hold a smartphone, so that recording will be much more steady than holding it with your hand. It can hold a Bloggie or a smartphone in a horizontal position. You just need to hold it or secure it somehow. Probably, amazon will carry it soon, if not already.
