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.
Pros: Sharing and live-streaming is dead simple, Compact design, Takes crisp 12.8-MP photos, Very responsive touch screen
Cons: Tripod mount in awkward location, Doesn't change orientation mid-recording
Excerpt: 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 .
