Maybe you've decided to join the social media revolution - or perhaps you're already knee deep in Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter and you're scoping out gift ideas - whatever the case may be, you've found yourself here, reading about Sony's MHS-TS20 8GB Bloggie Touch Camera. The 8GB Bloggie is the highest capacity pocket cam offering from the famed electronics company for 2010. And much like its 4GB sibling, the 8GB offers up a number of features.
The 8GB Bloggie Touch records up to 4 hours of high def video to its internal flash memory. But, in addition to recording HD video, the Bloggie as does double duty as a 12.8MP digital still camera. No matter which format you go with though, still or video, the camera utilizes a generous 3" touch screen, which rotates automatically, for composition and review of your files.
Diverging somewhat from an ultra-simple operation concept, the Bloggie Touch employees a couple features normally found on more feature-heavy consumer camcorders: SteadyShot image stabilization and face detection. Other useful features include 4x digital zoom and macro shooting, the ability to tag videos and stills for uploading to social networking sites, and a built-in rechargeable battery that can be powered back up via USB.
When you're done shooting, and ready to share what you've shot, the Bloggie Touch just needs to be connected to your compatible PC via the flip-out USB arm. The pre-loaded software automatically starts up once the camera is connected, allowing you to edit and share your videos and photos with ease. When you feel like sharing what you've shot in the big screen, just connect the Bloggie to your HDTV via the HDMI.
