Did this video help you?

ESE CHINOE: tha camcorder did you record this video with?

Ed Gilroy: You said the "optical zoom just doesn’t work at that point” The Sony Bloggie doesn’t have optical zoom. Just digital

nkresl97: 1st comment!

YT Miarosc: mate these video comparisons are an incredible idea - good job, very very useful

96lagos: Zi8 or Zx5 ??

THEaLOVEaGURU: @theoneandonlymeyupyu yes you can stand it up on a table without holding onto it, i just got the bloggie this christmas, and it was a major improvement from the camera i used to have, but to answer your question, yes it can stand up on its own.

Ogens1: OMG im the 800th viewer!!!!

Mateus Aguiar: Great video, but, the Sony Bloggie have a great audio capture? i want buy one camera to record some guitar covers and i dont know witch is the best, what you sugest?

HighTechDad: @MateusEstrelaAguiar Personally, I think the Zi8 is much better.

talldude123: The Bloggie looks better!

PocketPlayhouse: LOVE your reviews. I was all set to buy one of the flip cams...and for some stupid reason didn't even think to check other brands? but so glad i did, stumbled onto your reviews and am going kodak 100% Thank you! Also, in the side by side footage, the image stabilization on the kodak appears to be so much more...well..stable! Loved it! Thumbs up!

MCCStudios89: The Kodak has a clearer picture, but the Sony seems to have a bit more features. Did you have a problem with a clicking sound on the Sony?

LuckeMasse: Kodak Zi8 has done it again! It pwnd Sony Bloggie.

remates456: @HighT3chDad The new Bloggie TS20 is best ever so far.

HighTechDad: @YankeeStacker25 Thanks! Glad that you liked it. I guess you saw a preview of the video. It is now officially released.

changdae11: @MegaGOLD13 i once had the bloggie touch...its kinda nice...like the feature that lets u take a still pic while shooting a vid at the same time...but overall i like the kodak zi8... i have one rite now and its awesome

TheMarineMagic486: I was gonna get the bloggie touch for $120, but then I got the Kodak playfull water proof for $100. I am in love.

Ricardo Mendes: I've got the Kodak ZI8 and I love it. Specially the external mic jack. cheers

ToriMichele Morris: Thanks for this vid! I got the Bloggie for a Present, I wish I would have gotten the Zi8... i hate how the Bloggie doesn't have a CLEAR ZOOM! My next cam will be the Zi8 or higher.

HighTechDad: @nkresl97 Congrats!

YankeeStacker25: Your videos are AWESOME! I love it when you do these =D First time I've seen the Bloggie up close I like the Zi8 better because the colors are more vivid

HighTechDad: @MateusEstrelaAguiar You should take a look at the new Bloggie with touchscreen and the new Zi10 (PlayTouch). They are both quite good and newer.

halfgoodhalfevil: I don't know whether to get the Flip, Zi8, or Bloggie. I want something to capture vacations and other special moments. I'm not all that great with electronics, so I'd like something with an easy to use editing program. I do not make youtube vidoes right now, but may in the near future. What do you recommend? Anybody can answer.

IPRANKTheFool: they have a new and better bloggie thats touch screen and is way better than the zi8 and the flip

HDGamingRoom: I bought the Zi8 over the Flip Ultra HD because of your review, very fair comparisons I thought :) Again a nice comparison/review video and I still think the Zi8 wins

Kevin Venta: i have the Zi8, i wanna use it for airsoft filming, but, its dificult, because, i can`t put this camera anywhere on my gun or head or anywhere, because you cant turn the camera like by Sony Blogy.. and the sony blogy, as i see, it can goes anywhere, like it can lie on the gun..

SuperMechguy: whats VGA? i might buy this

Mateus Aguiar: @HighT3chDad i know, but i need save money, and theses cameras are very expansive in my country. I just can buy the old sony bloggie or the kodak Zi8 :/

genipresence: @YankeeStacker25 I thought the Kodak was better when I watched the side by side from my smartphone, but once I watched it online from a serious lcd screen the bloggie was a much better image. In both I noticed that the focus time was faster on the bloggie. It's a shame he shot this video in 720p, I bet the differences would have been even more dramatic to have seen the Bloggie's 1080p. Hard to do a comparison the way he did it in this video. Shame.

lilcj1999: i dont no which 1 2 choose!!!!!!!!!!!

Joseph Hollak: Does the Bloggie offer an external mic jack like the Sony? You didn't cover that in the comparison video, so I'm guessing there isn't one.

BlackHawkGaming: @HighT3chDad by far the Zi8 is still the best. Sony had ok light reaction time but the Zi8 had a way more defined color range. Thank you for your review by the way =)

HighTechDad: @nkresl97 Yeah, I still really like the Zi8!

Racoon's Corner: Don't they have image stabilization? Because it doesn't seem like it =/

wolfiemoonOnROBLOX: Kodak wins.

VidsBySS: @theoneandonlymeyupyu, You could purchase a Gorillapod and spread the legs flat. If you have a tripod with a quick release plate, use the plate to stand the Sony Bloggie.

fitforsoccer000888: Why does the kodak have face detection and a fixed lens? Does that even make sense to have both?

nkresl97: 1st comment! great vids! im getting the zi8

theoneandonlymeyupyu: HEY does anybody know if you could stand the sony bloggie on a table without anything holding it...for example, like the flip hd camera,? i know he mentioned that you cant do it on the kodak please respond, im looking for a camera that is able to stand by itself thanks!

b72903: Thank you for this review. Very concise.

maple2609: I own both the Zi6 and Zi8. Best HD pocket camera you will ever get. Trust me.

Joel Palmer: I just got the Kodak zi8 and its nice. The MAIN reason i goot it was for the MACRO whitch i love

Wis Trash: i like the kodak zi8 bettter

fiishywiishy: it does up to 5mp stills, you didnt scroll over to see it

MrJaysMind: You were kittying the play button? ;D 6:00

pedsay: argh decisions decisions!!!!! I was seriously considering buying the bloggie, but after watching this i'm thinking twice about it.... thanks for the vid!!!

BlackHawkGaming: @HighT3chDad does optical zoom work on 1080p when using the kodak?

nkresl97: @HighT3chDad Thank you, your original video made me want to get the zi8 (im talking about the one vs. the flip.) keep making comparison vids, because it helps determine what camera to buy!

xXSkullDudeXx: You tried to bring a gun... On a plane... I can feel the stupidity just hitting me in the face.. Did you not know the TSA existed or did you not know of how 9/11 happened which makes them even more paranoid you will be using that on the pilots. I know it sucks that you have to go through all those searches, but honestly a 5 year old can tell you that is a thing you shouldn't do when going on a flight.
