  • Sony's bloggies have never quite been the value option. If you want a decent waterproof pocket Internet camcorder, then Samsung's W200 is very keenly priced, Polaroid's X720 even more cost effective, and then Panasonic's HM-TA20 and Kodak's Playsport Zx5 are also both cheaper than the bloggie Sport. Features are also very limited, even for a camcorder of this type. But this is a typically solid Sony device, and of course image quality is top of the genre.

    The Bloggie Sport won't challenge the pro-level video cameras in terms of features and quality, but its simple interface and sturdy, waterproof body is likely to appeal to families at the beach or the extreme sports enthusiast who regularly finds his or her camera submerged in water.


  • The Sony Bloggie Sport is much like previous Sony pocket camcorders only a lot hardier. Waterproof and impervious to dust and (moderate) drops onto hard surfaces, you'll struggle to break it. It's simple to use, with barely any settings to tweak and one huge record button to kick off video although the touchscreen can be slightly unresponsive at times.


  • If you're looking for a simple shoot-and-share minicamcorder, the Bloggie Touch is a good option--that is, as long as you understand its limitations.


  • The easy-to-use, good-looking Sony Bloggie Touch shoots excellent-quality video at a variety of frame rates, and captures great still images it's our new Editors' Choice for pocket camcorders.


  • Although the Sony Bloggie Touch offers a beautiful design and excellent still-image quality, it stumbles on its core function: capturing video.


  • With its second front-facing display, Sony's Bloggie Duo (MHS-FS2) is a near-perfect pocket camcorder for self-shooters. But if it the best performance you're after, the Bloggie Touch still reigns supreme.


  • The Sony Bloggie Duo (MHS-FS2) is a digital video recorder built to fit comfortably in a pocket.


  • Mediocre video quality and a couple design issues keep the Kodak PlayTouch from being a top-notch minicamcorder.


  • The Kodak Playtouch Video Camera packs a touch screen along with plenty of settings, effects, and extras, but video image quality isn't top-notch.


  • The Kodak Playtouch is a pocket-sized, handheld HD camcorder that shoots high-definition videos and captures 5MP stills. It can capture 1080p high-definition video content at a standard 30fps speed, and 720p HD video content at an ultra-fast 60fps speed.

    - The JVC Picsio GC-FM2 is a pocket camcorder capable of recording full 1080p video.


  • The pocket Internet camcorder phenomenon felt like a passing fad when it first arrived, and there's no doubt it will be consumed by smartphones sooner or later. But, for now, the devices are developing, and gaining new features to improve the quality of point-and-shoot instant Internet upload videomaking. With its touch-exposure, image stabilisation and , the JVC PICSIO GC-FM2 is currently the most fully featured pocket Internet camcorder on the market.


  • Smart visuals and easy online sharing make this a handy pocket cam, if not quite best in class.
