The Sony Bloggie Sport camera introduced at this past CES is now shipping. The rugged and water-resistant camera can be submerged in up to 16 feet of water while taking photos or 1080p videos. The five-megapixel camera has 4GB of storage space, but no memory card slot.
A recently discovered FCC filing has shown that Sony wants an Internet-aware Bloggie pocket camcorder. The MHS-TS55, labeled on the bottom as a "Mobile HD Snap Camera," has built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi that isn't on current cameras. It's presumed the wireless would let it post videos online without having to sync with a computer first, or possibly live stream video.
The Sony Bloggie 3D camera is now on sale at Amazon for $249. The device shoots both 3D video and 3D still images. There is no need for 3D-glasses to view the video or photos on the device as it uses a 2.4-inch glasses-free 3D display for on-board viewing.
Sony on Tuesday began shipping the Bloggie Duo HD. First teased at CES, the pocket camcorder is unique in having a two-inch LCD on its back to help with video blogging and anything else that requires a self-portrait. It stands near the top of the category regardless with 1080p, stabilized video recording and five-megapixel still images from a low-light-friendly CMOS sensor.
Sony recently released a software update for its Bloggie Touch HD cameras that will finally allow users to easily manage and upload their photos and videos. The software can be downloaded from Sony's support site and lets users quickly upload content to sites such as Flickr, Picasa, Personal Space, YouTube and Facebook. Before, Mac users had to manually transfer files onto their Macs by clicking and dragging before having to upload to each site manually.
Bloggers are increasingly becoming accepted as not only producers of content, but as identifiable and targetable consumers. As such, Sony has created the world's first pocket-sized 3D camcorder, known as the MHS-FS3 Bloggie 3D. This new camcorder comes with an entry-level price tag "around" $250, despite being capable of capturing HD 3D, as well as ull HD 2D MPEG-4 video or 5.1 megapixel photos.
Sony rejuvenated its pocket camcorder mix today with the Bloggie Touch. The new model is almost exclusively controlled by a three-inch capacitive touchscreen that both provides a more flexible interface and reacts to whether it's used in portrait or landscape. Image quality is also important, as it uses a CMOS sensor that handles low light better than some others and shoots both 1080p video as well as 12.8-megapixel still images, or enough to challenge a regular photo camera.
