Excerpt: The Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS10 is a lean piece of equipment, with dimensions of about 52x15x107mm. Dominating its back are a 3-inch touchscreen and a record button. The left side offers a HDMI port, while the right side has the power button and the trigger button to snap still photos. On the bottom is a foldout USB connector.
Excerpt: Despite a few design quirks, the Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 is a definite improvement over its non-touchscreen-equipped predecessor. It is capable of taking very attractive video and is ultra-stylish to boot.
Summary: The Sony Bloggie Touch will probably be ideal if you're seeking a mini-camcorder that you can stash in your pocket and use to capture decent video. A lack of settings and a sluggish autofocus limit its uses, though.
Pros: Shoots in 1080p; produces high-quality video; simple, sleek design.
Cons: Digital zoom best avoided; often sluggish autofocus.
Summary: Pocket camcorders have come a long way since the plasticky, standard def, oh-so-simple Flip hit the market in 2007 – and the Sony Bloggie Touch is testament to that. Clad in a brushed-aluminium jacket and rocking a touchscreen and Exmor CMOS sensor, it’s able to snaffle up Full HD , 1920x1080p clips at 30fps and feels all the way like a premium product.
Excerpt: Following the success of its Bloggie camcorder, Sony has introduced a new model featuring a touchscreen, along with several other nifty improvements. We were on hand at IFA 2010 to take a look at the new pocket camcorder and this is what we thought.
Pros: Compact design, touchscreen, HD video, 360 lens
