Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS review:

 

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 8GB (MHS-TS20/S)

 

The easy-to-use, good-looking Sony Bloggie Touch 8GB (MHS-TS20/S) shoots excellent-quality video at a variety of frame rates, and captures great still images—it's our new Editors' Choice for pocket camcorders.

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.

Connectivity and Conclusions Getting your videos and photos onto your computer is simple—when you connect the Bloggie Touch to your computer via the flip-out USB arm, it shows up as a drive, and you can drag and drop everything from the camcorder to...

Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 pocket camcorder

 

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

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

Smudge-prone LCD, no swivel-lens

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.

First Look: Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20K

Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 review

 

The Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 is Sony's follow-up to its Bloggie MHS-CM5 pocket camcorder.

Despite a few design quirks, the Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 is a definite improvement over its non-touchscreen-equipped predecessor, the Bloggie MHS-CM5 pocket camcorder. It's capable of taking very attractive video and is ultra-stylish to boot.
