Sony Bloggie Live review

 

Much has been written about the smartphone's detrimental impact on point-and-shoot camera sales. Not enough has been written about an even bigger casualty of today's do-everything phones: the once-revolutionary pocket camcorder.

If you're looking specifically for a pocket camcorder, the Bloggie Live is a solid option, with wireless sharing features that you won't find in any other model. If you're seeking a handheld device to replace or augment the 1080p video or image-capture...

Sony Bloggie Live review

 

Cisco's Flip cameras may have died all too soon, but fortunately it wasn't the only good line of dead-simple, single-purpose camcorders on the market: Sony's Bloggie cameras, aside from being...

Streaming and sharing features are really easy ; Good video quality at plenty of resolutions ; Great design

Expensive ; Not always intuitive how to hold and use it ; Unimpressive still images

If you want what it offers, you'll like the Bloggie Live, but it's a niche device

Sony Bloggie Live Review

 

The $249 Bloggie Live is an innovative camcorder that delivers on its promises. Though we would like the autofocus to work a little faster and the price to be lower, its responsive touch screen and easy uploading and streaming capabilities are worth it...

Sharing and live-streaming is dead simple, Compact design, Takes crisp 12.8-MP photos, Very responsive touch screen

Tripod mount in awkward location, Doesn't change orientation mid-recording

Sony Bloggie Live HD Camera Review

 

At CES last month, many manufacturers announced new affordable cameras that come with built-in Wi-Fi. Cameras with built-in Wi-Fi have been around for a while now, but until ...

Easy to use with straight forward touchscreen interface, produces VERY good quality HD video, live streaming and direct uploads work well, good battery life

Limited to just 8GB of storage, no external mic option, LCD display is meh, battery is not removable, camera snaps are not the Bloggie’s strong point

Sony Bloggie Live Review

 

The simplicity of a pocket camcorder is one of its most well-known and attractive attributes, but the Bloggie Live tries to add some spice to the simplicity by making the device easy to use while introducing one new key feature: built-in Wi-Fi. The...

Generally good photo and video quality for a pocket camcorder ; Excellent display ; Solid battery life

Can't take spontaneous streaming video due to reliance on Wi-Fi connections ; Photos and video occasionally suffer from reddish tinge ; Expensive for what it is, especially considering the lack of usefulness behind Wi-Fi
