Update: We just got our review unit. Checkout our Bloggie Touch unboxing and first impressions.
Much like Cisco’s Flip camcorder, Sony has updated their pocket friendly camcorder to a touchscreen format. Called the Bloggie Touch it sports a 3-inch touchscreen and a dedicated button for starting and stopping recordings. It can capture full 1080p HD video and knows when you’re in landscape or portrait mode. Built into the base of the camcorder is a USB arm for uploading videos to your computer and the CMOS sensor is good for capturing up to 12.8 megapixel still images. There is no optical zoom, though Sony says there is a 4x digital zoom and an auto macro mode for those ultra close ups.
The Bloggie Touch will arrive this October in 4GB and 8GB capacities for $180 and $200, respectively.
