At A Glance
The Sony Bloggie Live is an excellent pocket camcorder with groundbreaking wireless features, but it's a tough sell in the age of do-everything smartphones.
The WiFi-enabled Sony MHS-TS55 Bloggie Live Camcorder (Silver) shoots up to 1920 x 1080p video and takes up to 12.8 megapixel still images. With it, you stream live video via WiFi and wirelessly upload video to the Internet. The camera features a capacitive 3.0-inch touch screen LCD display, as well as SteadyShot image stabilization. It has an LED light for low-light situations and flip-out USB arm for uploading footage and charging.
