Sony Bloggie Live MHS-TS55 Camcorder Review

The Sony Bloggie Live MHS-TS55 has a unique feature that sets it apart from other ultracompact models: WiFi.

Introduction

True to its name, the Bloggie Live comes loaded with WiFi capability, which means you can use it to shoot and upload video to the web without ever connecting to a computer. It's a cool feature, that's for sure, but it's something we've seen for a couple of years now on cell phones and other products (like the iPhone and iPod Touch).

That doesn't mean the Bloggie Live MHS-TS55 isn't an exciting camcorder. It's WiFi function not only allows you to upload clips to the web wirelessly, but it also lets you stream live video content via Sony's partnership with Qik.com and you can view video clips on your smartphone with Sony's PlayMemories app. WiFi has been around too long to be a huge game-changer here, but it's still a feature we're excited to see on the Bloggie Live (and more camcorders in the future).
