Features

Rugged 1080p HD video camera w/ still image capture
The Bloggie® Sport camera is built to handle extreme environments, allowing you to concentrate on safety and composition while capturing Full HD videos and 5MP photos. In addition to a protective, leather-like rubber bumper, the camera is waterproof down to 16 feet, and its 2.7-inch touch-screen remains fully operational underwater. It also has a shock resistance rating for up to 5 foot drops plus dirt and dust resistant seals that help make it nearly impervious to mud, snow, rain, and grime.2

SteadyShot® image stabilization
SteadyShot® image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake.

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.

Underwater Mode
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.

Share Function
The Bloggie® Sport lets you tag captured movies and photos and upload them later when connected to the Internet to services such as Facebook and YouTube, or to Sony's PlayMemories Online service.8

HDMI™ output
With HDMI™ output, you'll be able to share your HD Bloggie® Sport video with friends and family on your HDTV (HDMI cable required/not included).

2.7" touch-screen LCD
The 2.7" touch-screen is large enough for you to watch your movies and photos. This large touch-screen and the simple UI let you intuitively and comfortably operate the Bloggie® Sport camera even while under water. 3

4x Digital Zoom & Auto Macro
With the Bloggie® Sport camera you'll be able to take pictures or video from as little as 4" away, perfect for capturing a business card or a new friend's phone number.

Slim design with easy operation
The slender body with its low-profile and simplified buttons give the Bloggie® Sport camera a sleek look and feel and at only 5.2 oz it's easy to take with you everywhere.

Face Detection technology
Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural.

My bloggie stop charging after 6 month

By SpiderSuperman

from Los Angeles

Comments about Sony Bloggie Sports Black HD Camera:

This thing is horrible. Only records for 30 min at a time, even though it has enough space to record 1 hour. Pretty much impossible to replace the battery. You can not expand the battery. LoQuan

Doesn't work

By Tinuts

from Oregon

Comments about Sony Bloggie Sports Black HD Camera:

I have to return this item, it won't even turn on for me. It also doesn't keep the charge while its plugged in. The light turns off indicating it should be done charging, but no, it stopped on its own and is still empty. When I try to turn it on, I hold the button for 7 seconds, 30 seconds, a min...nothing. I also learned that you basically charge it for 3 hours, for only 50 min of battery time. I should have bought a regular video cam and not this item!

Worth the $

By Because

from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Bloggie Sports Black HD Camera:

I got this camera to make YouTub vids. I love this camera! But the speaker is on the front of the camera, so if I am making a video, the actors need to speak up. But, I do have a wireless speaker so it is not so bad. Overall, I love this product a lot! I think it is also a great gift for a teen because they are very tuff on there stuff and this is a tuff camera! Get it!

    not worth it for me

    By unrealgamer

    from Martinsburg, WV

    Comments about Sony Bloggie Sports Black HD Camera:

    I was super excited to get this item for my wife and I for our Vegas Vacation, thankfully we used it before we took our trip, because now we are learning we dislike this item. The screen is super small and the device its self is not user friendly. I love that during a concert in the rain all day it didn't damage anything, but other then that I couldn't find how to change the type of picture, let alone where my pictures and videos where that I had taken. Over all I ended up using my phone with a bigger screen and better shot. Wouldn't recommend buying if the screen is smaller then my wife's iPhone.
