Robert, Rayleigh Just point and shoot

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Small and comfortable to use, good zoom
Easy to flip between still pics and movies
Bad points:
Bad picture quality when used indoors. Great when out side in the sun.
Bad sound quality as picks up even the smallest wind
Will only record for 29mins then auto stops.
Hard to see display screen in bright light.
The built in USB and very short extension lead is ok if you have a laptop. But for a desktop PC it is way to short and the camcorder just hangs.
The software included dose not fully work. The the auto updates page opens up every time you start the programe but the update page no longer exists and I can find the new link

Jonathan, Glasgow Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Image stablization is great!! The HD quality was beyond my comprehension.
Bad points:
It's quite difficult to record where there isn't a lot of light. It just seems like the Bloggie only records a clear picture when surrounded by light.

Christine, St Helens Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I can fit it in my handbag. It is easy to use in that you just point it and film without shaking!!!!!! I love it for all that.
Bad points:
I hate it that the instruction for putting it to disc aren't in plain English for us technophobes!!!! I will have to get someone to show me what to do as I've tried and can't do it!
