Default bloggie touch or bloggie duo?

i'm guessing the duo came out after the touch being is has literally one review on amazon. i was looking at the specs on both cameras -

http://www.camcorderinfo.com/specs/S...-FS2/10321.htm

http://www.camcorderinfo.com/content...nd-Ratings.htm

... but i really have no technical knowledge of the lingo used there, such as video pixel count. which one is better as far as those specs show for quality? any other comments on either camera would be helpful.

also, the duo has optical image stab... is that better than digital?

All I will tell you is that the dual has two screens and that makes Vlogging a hell lot easier.

do you think the optical image stab is true, or could that just be a mistake? i've never seen a pocket cam with optical stab.

i'm also confused as to which one has the larger sensor. one is a quarter inch and the other one and a quarter.. i'm confused.

yeah, i was thinking it was too good to be true. if it were, i'm sure the cam would be much more expensive.

also, what is video pixel count and how does it affect quality?

I do not worry bout what a caam shows us in view, I worry about what the cam can record that we view . I am sure specs are all online. I am sure the Postage stamp is way smaller than the main screen.

which is the better sensor fishycomics? i know there may be other factors that may contribute to the "better" sensor, but generally speaking, which one would you say?

bloggie touch - Imaging Sensor : Exmor™ CMOS Sensor (1/2.5 type,7.22mm)

bloggie duo - Imaging Sensor : 1/4" (4.5mm) Exmor CMOS Sensor

i guess i should add that the duo has a five megapixel video pixel count, and the touch is a whopping thirteen.

In my eyes if its a digital still cam of XX mb. its only 3 mb INTERPOLATED to whatever tehy say. i know cams today are over 15 mb lol but software is invovled.

If the number increases 1/4, to 1/3, to 1/2, I think it is better, if the oposite its worse. i forget, school is out. for the fish LOL.

Sorry, but never a Pro, just my Opinion. Not a fan of Sonys Bloggie due to its quality.
