Sony Bloggie camcorder is squarely cool

Sony unveils touchscreen camcorder for YouTube crowd

For a long time camcorders were not designed to be compact and portable. This was mostly because the hardware inside the camcorders was fairly large early on. As technology advanced and components shrunk along with video sharing sites like YouTube becoming crazy popular, camcorders slimmed up and went portable so users could take them everywhere. Sony has unveiled a new thin and portable camcorder for video fans called the Bloggie Touch.


The little camcorder is very nice looking with a brushed silver aluminum look case and shiny chrome trim. The thing looks a lot like your typical bar style smartphone to me. It's not a phone though and can record full HD video and shoot still shots as well. Those still shots can be taken in 12.8MP resolution.

The rear LCD is a 3-inch touchscreen for viewing video and accessing menus and settings on the camera. Other features include HDMI out, 4x digital zoom, and 8GB of internal storage. It's too bad the little camera has no optical zoom. It will ship in November in silver, black, and pink at an unknown price.
