The Sony Bloggie Touch is my number one pocket HD camcorder on the Technology Holiday Buyer’s Guide for a reason. There is currently no better pocket camcorder on the market. With the Bloggie Touch, Sony combines an attractive design, firm build and a large and responsive touch display with great image quality and solid shooting performance. The new and improved Bloggie Touch software and Personal Spaces are icing on the cake.
There is room for improvement, however. The mic placement baffles me, and the Bloggie Touch is missing what I consider necessary accessories (carrying bag, microfiber cloth). Also, the focus and white balance controls are too finicky for my liking, and the video is not as detailed as I would have preferred. But none of these issues are severe enough to cripple the device.
Pocket camcorders should offer a combination of good-enough performance with simple and fun operation. By that standard, the Sony Bloggie exceedingly succeeds.
