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
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.
