Cnet Review

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

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

The bottom line: 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.

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 departments, as well in usability. The Bloggie Touch corrects that by aiming for simplicity and hitting its target. Unfortunately, all that competition means there are similarly priced devices out there with more or better features. Anyone who wants tons of settings and features should look elsewhere. That said, if ease of use and design matter a great deal, you might just like what the Bloggie Touch offers.

Autofocus is one of the big selling points of the Bloggie Touch, since it’s something many devices in this category don’t have. This allows you to go from shooting something like a whole garden right down to a single flower 4 inches away. The AF isn’t all that fast, though, and it’s even slower in low-light conditions. And if your subject is moving or you’re moving the camera, your video will pulse in and out of focus. Though I don’t have a problem with this, some will find it too distracting to be useful. Also, if you’re shooting in complete silence, you will hear a faint ticking sound picked up by the mono microphone while it’s trying to focus. I know this all sounds bad, but since most minicamcorders can’t focus on anything closer than 3 feet from the lens, it’s actually a plus to have this feature if you understand the limitations.

The video quality from the Bloggie Touch is very good under the right circumstances. Of course, pocket video cameras such as this can’t compete with a full-fledged HD camcorder that costs hundreds of dollars more. There are other factors that go into creating great video beyond high resolution, so if you’re considering this for its “full HD” setting, you might want to think twice. While color and exposure are good, the video isn’t very sharp and on a large TV looks a bit soft and painterly. It doesn’t look bad, but if you’re expecting razor-sharp clarity because it’s 1080p, you’ll likely be disappointed. Also, it doesn’t handle movement–of the subject or of the device–very well at 1080p, creating a lot of judder. That’s unfortunately typical of this type of video camera. The upside to the Bloggie Touch is that Sony gives you a 720/60p setting, which smooths things out some if you’re shooting action or doing a lot of panning left and right. Lastly, the low-light video is noisy and grainy with readily visible artifacts. I’ve seen much worse, though, so all in all the Bloggie Touch does all right indoors and in darker conditions.
