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.
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.
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" screen3 and camera functions.
As you snorkel or scuba dive down to the Bloggie® Sport camera's operational limit of 16 feet1, 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
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.
5MP still images
Enjoy capturing clear, crisp still photos at 5MP resolution. The high resolution yields incredible detail while giving you the flexibility for large prints and cropping.
