Just as we thought the Flip Mino HD had taken the whole market for ultra-portable camcorders, Sony has fought back and offered the Bloggie. Their 5MP handheld camcorder has a 1920×1080 HD recording resolution and displays on a 2.5-inch LCD screen.
There are a few different models available, all with varying specs and colors but none of them stand out as being better than the Flip series.
In fact, it would be quite possible to say that the Flip series and Sony Bloggie series are pretty much identical. The price is the same, the resolution near enough, and the only difference comes when you start looking at aperture sizes (and that classic Sony styling)!
If Sony are hoping people will buy purely because of their branding, it’s a risky bet. Those loyal to Sony are likely to be from slightly older generations, i.e. those that have a need for a full-sized camcorder not a portable one. With the Flip being seen as so cool and desirable amongst the younger generations they have a lot to live up to. Good luck Sony.
