Rugged 1080p HD Video Camera with 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 five megapixel photos. In addition to a protective, leather-like rubber bumper, the camera is waterproof down to sixteen feet and its 2.7" touch-screen remains fully operational underwater. It also has a shock resistance rating for up to five foot drops, as well as dirt and dust resistant seals that help make it nearly impervious to mud, snow, rain and grime
Underwater Mode
As you snorkel or scuba dive down to the Bloggie Sport camera's operational limit of sixteen feet, 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
Vivid 2.7" Touch Screen LCD Display
The 2.7" touch screen is large enough for you to watch your movies and photos. This large touchscreen and the simple user0-interface let you intuitively and comfortably operate the Bloggie Sport camera even while under water
SteadyShot Image Stabilization
SteadyShot image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake
LED Light for Low-Light Shooting Situations
A built-in LED light makes it easy to shoot clear photos even in dark environments. To turn the LED light on, simply tap on the light bulb icon on the screen. This feature is perfect for parties and other night-time events
Digital 4x Zoom & Auto Macro
With the Bloggie Sport camera you'll be able to take pictures or video from as little as 4.0" away, perfect for capturing a business card or a new friend's phone number
Flip-Out USB Arm for Upload & Charge
A built-in USB arm easily flips-out and lets you connect your camera directly to your compatible PC to upload video and/or charge your battery without having to hunt for cables
Five Megapixel Still Images
Enjoy capturing clear, crisp still photos at five megapixel 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. Plus, 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 PlayMemories 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" touch screen and camera functions
HDMI Output
With the 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)

    So far the Blogie Sport is great. I previosuly had (and still have) the Bloggie Duo with 2 screens. I wanted something that was more durable, and the sport is waterproof, shockproof, etc. Have tested the video quality and is excellent as long as you are in good light (outdoor is best). The only think that would make it superior would be either a better mic or the ablitly to attach an alternate external mic...but, for the price and ease of use without worry..pretty darn good!

    As I was preparing for a trip to Disney I found myself in need of something handy, affordable and easy to tote. The Bloggie has satisifed these needs. I was very pleased to find that it includes a USB connector and instructions for the Play Memories software. Although I enjoy the conveniences of this item, the photo quality has not been satisfactory. Despite this, I will continue using my Bloggie because I have no other complaints.

      Comments about MHS-TS22 Bloggie Sport Camcorder (Black):

      I bought this camera for the purpose of underwater photography. Haven't yet had the opportunity to fully use it for its underwater capabilities but what little I have shot, both still and video, look very good. The real benefit of this camera, and not the real reason why I purchased it, is that it is small enough to fit in my pocket and therefore I have it with me almost always. The camera is rugged and I have it to capture those spontaneous images that otherwise I would miss. Great buy for the money.

        Primary use was for snorkeling. Did as expected and the underwater filter was great. Battery life, okay. Bought with the Sony external pack, but could not get it to work, so charged via USB. Great for in water beach shots. Zoom worked well. Have not tried to edit yet.

        Easy to use, works with my cell phone charger, cool features.
        We use it for hiking / honeymoon / snorkeling etc.
        Some bad things are the placement of the microphone is where your hands go so you have to be careful with videos cause of the rubbing. Also, small internal memory and no place for external cards so we HAD to bring our laptop on vacation

          Great compact design, easy to use right out of the box. Love the waterproof feature. Only drawback is the touchscreen is not as sensitive and it takes a couple of tries to get it to recognize a command. Take clear images, has a zoom feature, and clear video. Love that you can snap a shot while in video mode. Great purchase for the price!

            Upon opening the package, I shot some sample video and played it on an Apple Cinema screen. The quality of the video was very poor, and not anywhere close to HD as advertised.

            I double-checked the settings to ensure it was capturing HD, and it "was." I had a Kodak HD Pocketcam, and was hoping to get video with similar high-quality HD, but Sony couldn't provide it with this camera.

            I returned the product before using the other features.

            This has been a lot of fun to use. So far, I have had no issues and am very pleased at how it works. The only thing to remember is that it is not designed as an SLR quality indoor camera and needs adequate lighting indoors. With a few lights on in the room, the pictures came out fine.

                    Camera is certainly rugged and water proof. Boots up quickly. Easy to use. Takes poor qality still pictures unless, in best lighting situations. Video is okay. Both comparable to a cell phone camera. Might be okay for use during the day ( when the sun is shining on the subject) Excellent choice to take to places you dont want or cannot take your bigger camera

                      Comments about MHS-TS22 Bloggie Sport Camcorder (Black):

                      I bought the Bloggie Sport at the last minute for my son's homecoming from Afghanistan. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised after shooting video with it. The video quality is awesome. It is small enough to fit in your pocket yet feels well constructed. I'm very happy with the Bloggie and the service from B&H.

                      I used the camera extensively whilst snorkeling in Tonga for both stills and video. I was very impressed with its performance. Picture quality is good and controls are easily operated under water. Construction is very robust and the USB plug that both charges the battery and downloads the captured images is very convenient. Initially I had difficulty aiming the camera accurately as it is difficult to see the screen clearly through a snorkeling mask underwater but with practice it became easier. On the down side I would like to see a brighter/bigger indicator to show when the camera is actually recording.

                      Bloggie has easy point and shoot capability. Flash is not bright for shooting photos, but image quality is very good in low-light conditions. Sound quality is so-so.

                      Bloggie is not cheap, especially when you add accessories.

                      Downloading via iPhoto or iMovie was seamless.

                        I use the camera for golf. The sport setting is 60fps which is excellent for playing back in slow motion. The video is great. The touch screen is acceptable. The only negative is that the storage is not expandable.

                        So far the Blogie Sport is great. I previosuly had (and still have) the Bloggie Duo with 2 screens. I wanted something that was more durable, and the sport is waterproof, shockproof, etc. Have tested the video quality and is excellent as long as you are in good light (outdoor is best). The only think that would make it superior would be either a better mic or the ablitly to attach an alternate external mic...but, for the price and ease of use without worry..pretty darn good!
