Screen

Screen:
"- USB connector built in - Tripod mountCONs: * More drop-able (smooth curved edges) * Horizontal orientation -- less ergo than vertical-hold pocket cams - Won't stand on edge for landscape video - Touch screen controls are laggy and unpredictable vs. hard controls - Less compact (25% larger) - No trim or edit capability - Printed user manual is very sparse (see Note 2) - PDF manual is hard to find until too late (see Note 2) - Expensive- - - Video Quality - - -Sony MHS-TS55 ."
_
"PROs: * Screen is much larger (3 vs 1.5) * Auto-focus (but with annoying delay) - Touch screen (but so-so sensitivity) - Wi-Fi built in - Auto-macro (to 4) - Image stabilization - Digital Zoom (but it's jumpy."
_
"If you don't hold the Bloggie horizontally, you won't get all the great wide screen HD video aspects."
_
"The touch screen is really nice, and the camera feels much like a phone."
_
"It is very easy to use and the screen is nice and big and clear."
_
"We were taking movies and still pictures within minutes of having it out of the box, watching them back on the small screen, deletiing---everything is so easy to use!"
_
"The screen looks nice and the sound is reasonable for such a small device."
_
"I think this is where Cisco's Flip got something right - although the screen is definitely smaller, I didn't have to hold the Flip MinoHD at a horizontal to get a good wide screen shot."

Video

Video:

"The Bloggie records an annoying clicking sound on all videos."
_

_
"I do think it takes a better video than my iPod or standard camera, but not as good as my digital camcorder."

_
"I didn't run into any problems uploading a video to You-Tube and video appeared on the site in a minute."
_
"The video is very clear."
_
"This isn't a problem for home movie recording, but it would be a problem if you're recording a performance, play, musical event or other lengthy topic where you would want the camera to keep rolling."
