Key Features

Rugged 1080p HD video camera w/ still image capture

The Bloggie Sport camera is built to handle extreme environments, allowing you to concentrate on safety and composition while capturing Full HD videos and 5MP photos. In addition to a protective, leather-like rubber bumper, the camera is waterproof down to 16 feet, and its 2.7-inch touchscreen remains fully operational underwater. It also has a shock resistance rating for up to 5 foot drops plus dirt and dust resistant seals that help make it nearly impervious to mud, snow, rain, and grime.1

Underwater Mode

As you snorkel or scuba dive down to the Bloggie Sport camera’s operational limit of 16 feet1, the red spectrum of visible light is progressively absorbed by the water, resulting in a blue color cast. The Underwater Mode automatically adjusts white balance and contrast to compensate for this color shift, resulting in more natural photos and colorful fish.

Capacitive 2.7-inch touchscreen LCD

The 2.7-inch touch-screen is large enough for you to watch your movies and photos. This large touchscreen and the simple UI let you intuitively and comfortably operate the Bloggie Sport camera even while under water.1

SteadyShot image stabilization

SteadyShot image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake.

LED light for low-light shooting situations

The Bloggie Sport camera has a built-in LED light to provide you ample lighting in any situation – indoors and/or where lighting is not optimal. To turn the LED light on, simply tap on the light bulb icon on the screen. This feature is perfect for parties and other nighttime events.

4x Digital Zoom & Auto Macro

With the Bloggie Live camera you'll be able to take pictures or video from as little as 4" away, perfect for capturing a business card or a new friend's phone number.

Flip-out USB arm for upload/charge5

A built-in USB arm easily flips-out and lets you connect your camera directly to your compatible PC to upload video1 and/or charge your battery without having to hunt for cables.

5MP still images

Enjoy capturing clear, crisp still photos at 5MP resolution. The high resolution yields incredible detail while giving you the flexibility for large prints and cropping.

Slim design with easy operation

The slender body with its low-profile and simplified buttons give the Bloggie Sport camera a sleek look and feel and at only 4.5 oz it's easy to take with you everywhere.

Sony Exmor CMOS sensor

The Bloggie Sport camera's  Exmor CMOS sensor delivers  high-quality video and pictures with less noise, even in challenging lighting conditions.

Share Function

The Bloggie Sport lets you tag captured movies and photos and upload them later when connected to the Internet to services such as Facebook and YouTube, or to Sony's PlayMemories8 Online service. Videos and photos are converted to an optimum format for faster uploading and viewing on smartphones, tablets, computers, and HDTVs, allowing you to share more content with friends and family. 

Face Detection technology

Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural.

Built-in rechargeable battery

The built-in battery contributes to the Bloggie Sport camera's sleek and stylish design while powering the large 2.7-inch screen3 and camera functions.

HDMI output

With HDMI output, you'll be able to share your HD Bloggie Sport video with friends and family on your HDTV (HDMI cable required/not included).

I purchased a Flip Slide about a year ago but I returned it after (1) it developed a problem with its HDMI jack and (2) I learned that Cisco had dropped the product and will terminate support next year. Chose the new Bloggie Sport as the replacement and received it a few days ago. Based on my experience with it thus far, I have both good and bad things to say.

First the good:

(1) With the option of shooting in full-HD (1080) resolution, the Sony trumps the Flip, which went no higher than 720. I watched my Bloggie videos on a 46" screen and the quality was superb. I took some underwater videos of my 6-year-old in the pool (she's an amazing little swimmer) and again was delighted with the results (as was she!). The Bloggie has a very cool underwater mode that color-corrects based on depth. The results were impressive. (The camera is supposed to be waterproof down to 15 feet. I didn't go even half that distance, but there was no evidence of any leakage. I had to use an Aquapac case -- basically a clear vinyl pouch -- to shoot underwater with the Flip; this was a lot less cumbersome.)

(2) There have been some complaints about button placement on the Bloggie; yes, they take a few moments to get used to, but I actually found the placement to be more intuitive than they were on the Flip -- notably the still photo shutter button.

(3) The Bloggie is as much of a "flip" as the Flip was; i.e., its USB connector flips out of the case and can be plugged into your computer directly. If that's made difficult becase of the location of your USB jack, the short USB extension cord that's included in the package will solve the problem.

(4) The Bloggie features a selectable "HD Sports" mode that shoots 720p at 60 fps.

Took the camera out to the bar last night and it did well in the low light. Better than my flip did. Microphone is very good.

This morning it is raining in LA and I took the camera out and filmed. HD looks great, synced video to my mac and blasted it up to my Apple TV in a matter of 2 minutes. Unheard of with other cameras I have owned.

Image stabilization seems to be better than I thought it would be. LED light for flash is just as comical as a cell phone LED. Works better for finding dropped keys than anything else.

Everyone thought it was my cell phone at dinner last night, touchscreen is easy to use and BIG.

Setting have it on 2mp photos and 720p when you get it. I thought things were not that great, but then when I moved it to 5mp and 1080p there was a big difference.

Easy to hold and looks cool. So far so good.

Update: 4/16/12

Had this for a couple of really good outings with the family and have to say I would rate this a 6 star camera if I could. I have no idea why people are rating this camera so low? Maybe they are getting a lemon or something?

The clarity and microphone are WAY better than the flip and vado I used to own. Pool shots are so cool I cannot even tell you how amazed people in my family are.

Works perfect with Iphoto and Imovie. Super easy to format it into an itunes format and blast to the appleTV.

Stills are great, and easy to put into Imovie as well.

Once again, NO idea how people are rating so low. My family is LOVING this camera. Have had this in the ocean, in a pool, my daughter through it off the top of the stairs onto our hardwood floors, in the sand at the beach. Keeps on trucking. Exactly what I needed.

Going to Hawaii at the end of the month cant wait for more filming.

After testing out the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX10 16.2 MP Waterproof Digital Still Camera with Exmor R CMOS Sensor, 3D Sweep Panorama, and Full HD 1080/60i Video (Blue) as being the best waterproof camera I've gone surfing with I thought this new Sony Bloggie Sport would have been at least half has good with half its price and still be happy... Wrong!
The Sony Bloggie Sport has got to be the worst waterproof camera I've tested out thus far. Everything you can think of, it rates at the bottom.

1) Quality - As bad as it gets. I shot off over 100 surfer shots using it with the Surf Camera Case | Chest Mount your Waterproof Camera and not a single surf shot was a keeper. Very grainy. I believe you'd be better of with a disposable waterproof camera.
2) Shutter speed - Slo[...] It takes 2 full seconds to shot a single picture after you've pressed the shutter. This is not at all good for action sports such as surfing.
3) Video - Also slo[...] It's not filming until 2 seconds after you've pressed the shutter. That's too much precious time when your trying to video a surfer coming down the line at you and it doesn't matter anyways because the video comes out all grainy.
4) View finder - So dark you can't see anything moving fast. It's worthless. All you can do is aim and shoot and hope to get lucky.
5) Touch screen - What a mistake! And I really mean it. Good luck trying to get it to work especially with wet fingers. To top it off you have to have good shade to even see what you're doing.
6) Battery life - A single AAA battery would last longer.
