Conveniet and Easy to Use,
This review is from: Sony Bloggie Duo Camera (White) (Electronics)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a photographer, blogger and mother of five young children who are growing up much too fast, I'm always concerned with trying to capture those precious and fleeting moments. I already own a heavy DSLR camera and a SONY digital Handycam but I was excited to try out the Sony Bloggie Duo Camera. It came just in time to test it out at my daughter's second grade dance festival and my son's patriotic program at school.
The thing I love the most about it is it's small, compact size. About the size of a smart phone, it fits easily in my pocket or purse. I didn't have to worry about carrying and keeping track of an additional camera bag. It's very convenient and easy to use. My 9 year old son used it to film himself and his siblings being ridiculously silly. The second screen just below the lens makes it possible to see yourself when you film yourself--making it perfect for vlogging.
My daughter's dance festival was held outside and the camera worked quite well in the natural light. However, my son's program was inside and the camera did not do as well in the dim lighting. I was not as impressed with the film and image quality as I expected. The quality of the still shot was not impressive either.
Just as the product claims, downloading movie clips to Facebook or YouTube is a very simple (although slow) process. The software is easy to install and use.
While I will continue using my other cameras for most photoshoots and important programs, because of the convenience and ease of the Bloggie Duo, I will keep it in my purse so that I will have handy camera to use at those cute, precious and unplanned moments.
