With the Flip gone, can Sony take the handheld camcorder crown?
9 January 2012
Summary: There’s an easy way to decide whether or not you should buy the Sony Bloggie Live: do you want the livestreaming and wireless uploads? If not, save your money and buy the Bloggie Touch or the Bloggie Duo, which you can get for as little as $169.99 (and probably less, now that the Live is on the market). Video quality is roughly equivalent between the three, as are most of the key features and limitations.
Pros: Streaming and sharing features are really easy, Good video quality at plenty of resolutions, Great design
Cons: Expensive, Not always intuitive how to hold and use it, Unimpressive still images
Sony Bloggie Live Review: It Has Wi-Fi, But Now What?
Digital Camera Review
9 January 2012
Summary: The Bloggie Live is a great pocket camcorder because it does what it's supposed to do and it does it well. It shoots surprisingly high-quality photos and video for what it is, it has a good-looking and responsive touchscreen, it's got killer battery life, and its ability to do direct upload and shoot live streaming video over Wi-Fi is impressive and headache-free?when you're on the right connection.
Summary: 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 for people who want to share moments as they happen.
