Sony Bloggie Touch launches today - Have fun shooting Full HD and 360 videos with the new-generation Sony Bloggie Touch.
The stylish, new Bloggie Touch from Sony is a must-have purchase this festive season – an ideal gift for a friend or a perfect companion on a night out or upcoming holiday thanks to its HD video capabilities, portable size and ease to upload content online.
With the ability to create Full HD video clips and still photos, the new Bloggie Touch from Sony is a radical evolution from the first-generation Sony Bloggie models. The all-new snap camera boasts classic looks with its slim, rounded body and finely brushed aluminium finish. It’s also the perfect ‘all-in-one’ solution for shooting and sharing life’s special moments, wherever you are.
The camera’s cool, clean lines are dominated by a large, bright 7.6cm (3in) LCD touchscreen that allows a clear view of photos and video clips taken. Flick through your images on the widescreen LCD with intuitive fingertip gestures – it couldn’t be easier.
The sensitive Exmor CMOS Sensor captures sparkling Full HD videos and crisply-detailed still photos. Picture quality is enhanced further by the bright, high quality lens for clear, low noise images – even when you’re shooting on an overcast day.
Bloggie Touch features a versatile autofocus lens with wide angle function. There’s also a new auto macro mode to focus sharply on objects as close as 10cm away. It’s ideal for snapping the menu of that unforgettable restaurant meal or a beautiful flower discovered on holiday.
Bloggie Touch also records amazing 360-degree panoramic videos to capture everything that’s happening around you – just clip on the supplied lens adaptor. 360 videos are now twice the resolution of previous-generation Bloggie, and low-light video quality is also improved thanks to the Exmor CMOS sensor. In addition to fun 360 Video, Bloggie Touch features “free-style shooting” which allows you to capture movie both in landscape and portrait – it’s a completely new way of seeing the world from every angle.
Despite its slim, compact size, Bloggie Touch allows up to 4 hours of HD movie shooting time (1280 x 720/30p mode) on its 8GB internal memory. (Continuous maximum shooting time: approx. 29 mins).
After shooting, it’s never been easier to share your favourite photos and video clips on the web. Bloggie Touch connects instantly to any PC via its flip-out USB arm that also charges the camera’s battery. There are no fiddly cables or software CDs to worry about: hook up the Bloggie Touch and the built-in sharing software launches automatically.
Simply drag and drop to upload your favourite moments without any fuss to social networks and popular sites like YouTube, Facebook and Flickr. Bloggie Touch lets you concentrate on having fun while you're out and about - it’s easy to tag content with a new ‘Share-it-Later’ function allowing you to bookmark your favourite photos and clips and then upload your selections to the web in moments when you're back home.
