Does it do what it says it will do? The Sony Bloggy Touch does everything it says it will do. The quality of the photos is amazing and the video that I have shot with my Bloggie Touch is impeccable, provided that I stay in natural light or a well lit room. Once the lighting is compromised, I notice the quality is not as great. Another thing that I wish it had was perhaps a flash and that the button to capture photos was a little more functional. As it stands, you have to push so hard on the button to capture the photo that it sometimes ends up making the photo blurry. Overall, I really enjoy shooting with the Bloggie Touch.

It is a very easy to use, good quality camera that takes high quality photos and video and can fit right into your pocket. It’s about the size of my iPhone. The Sony Bloggie Touch is totally User Friendly and a lot of fun to play with.
