[CES 2012] Last year Sony released the Bloggie 3D at CES, and it looks like 3D is not a cool feature any more. Consumer camera manufacturers have to integrate innovative additional features that people really want to make them buy a point and shoot camcorder since the one they already have in their smartphones is usually sufficient for the everyday usage. One way of achieving this goal is to offer a rugged camera, a device much needed while on vacation swimming or hiking in the wild.
The Sony MHS-TS22 Bloggie Sport HD gets a really cool design and comes in three flavors: black, blue, and red. You will be able to shoot 1080p HD video and upload easily to your favorite social sites such as Facebook, YouTube etc., thanks to a convenient built-in USB connector mounted on a flip-out arm.
The Bloggie Sport HD baosts a 4x digital zoom and Auto-Macro, a LED light for low-light conditions, 4GB of internal memory and a 2,7-inch touchscreen LCD.
