Sony Bloggie Touch

 

While Cisco has shuttered its popular Flip camera division for 2011, Sony forges ahead full steam with no less than four Bloggie variants, including the venerable Bloggie Touch. The 1080p pocket cam emphasizes style and ease of use with an...

Responsive, bright touchscreen ; Simple, easy to learn and use UI and controls ; Crisp, accurate stills and videos ; Ability to take stills during recording ; Slim, sleek, minimalist design

No SD card slot ; No audio output jack ; Chassis scratches easily; screen easily smudged ; Can be awkward to hold when shooting stills

Considering what you get for the price, the Sony Bloggie Touch stands among the top of its competition.

Sony Bloggie Touch 8GB (MHS-TS20/S)

 

Excellent video quality. Small, sleek form factor. Large, touch-screen LCD. Shoots high-quality 12MP still images. HDMI out. Simple drag-and-drop interface on computer

USB arm feels a bit flimsy. Touch screen interface is occasionally confusing. No support for accessories. No HDMI cable included

The easy-to-use, good-looking Sony Bloggie Touch shoots excellent-quality video at a variety of frame rates, and captures great still images—it's our new Editors' Choice for pocket camcorders.

Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 ( Black)

 

There is a lot of competition in the minicamcorder/pocket video camera space. Sony's Bloggie Touch stands out for its design and build quality, which is centered around a 3-inch touch screen. Past Sony models were lacking in the look and feel...

Attractive, lightweight, and small; full use of 3-inch screen for shooting; autofocus macro; captures stills while shooting video; simple to use.

Autofocus can be slow; no memory expansion; no HDMI cable included; no mic or headphone jack; weak software.

If you're looking for a simple shoot-and-share minicamcorder, the Bloggie Touch is a good option--that is, as long as you understand its limitations.

Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 – With AutoFocus

 

There is plenty of competition right now in the market for minicamcorders. Sony's Bloggie Touch is different from the crowd out there in terms of build quality and design. There is a three inch touch screen interface which looks really good. Previous...

Sony Bloggie Touch review: a Full HD pocket cam aimed at bloggers

 

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.

Good Full HD video performance, attractive design, user-friendly interface

Sony Bloggie Touch review

 

The Sony Bloggie Touch, or MHS-TS20, or Mobile HD Snap Camera depending on where you look on the device and packaging, is a pocket camcorder that looks to take a step forward in video quality over some rivals.

Autofocus, great video quality, compact design, screen

Autofocus mechanism chirps meaning noisy video, tripod mount is in the wrong place, can't upgrade memory or change battery

As it is, some will find that the Sony Bloggie Touch doesn’t provide a satisfactory result, but depending on your requirements, it is worth looking at if you want a compact device that is simple to use and offers excellent quality video capture
