Although late in the game, the Bloggie affirms that the industry recognizes a market for portable devices that allow you to directly upload video to YouTube, among other sharing sites. It directly competes with the 5th generation iPod nano that also does video and the Flip video camera. As Sony came in later in the market, they had time to add several unique features that makes this the best “Internet video camera” for friends to enjoy.
First off, the Bloggie has slots for two types of memory cards: SD and and their proprietary memory stick (the device comes bundled with a 4GB card). Second, the USB dock is built into the unit, which means that you won’t need any external cables to connect and transfer video. Third, it comes with a secondary 360 degree camera (so yeah the Bloggie comes with 2 cameras) that rotates by itself to capture everything around its radius. Great for parties. The Bloggie records in HD.
According to Nina Lumabas, product manager for Handycam the Bloggie has a battery life of up to one hour. Note that the Bloggie isn’t classified under the Cybershot or Handycam line as it is a product segment on its own. it retails for PHP 14,999.00.
