Expert Reviews

1 June 2012

As a conclusion of this analysis, the Sony Bloggie Duo is a good option if you don't necessarily want or need a fancy camcorder...

The Sony Bloggie Duo has a secondary front LCD, a nicelooking design, and is very easy to use
Inexpensive
Excellent video quality
Plenty of recording options
LED flash
Video quality from the Bloggie Duo is best at small sizes, and for the money it doesn't offer many features
Big
Strange color options
Antiquated interface
Auto-focusing is only a workaround
