Gift Guide: Sony Bloggie Camcorder Kit

by .   filed under:

What kind of a blogger would I be if I didn’t talk about this handy little doo-hickie, specifically made for bloggers like me?  



…Well kind of… it’s not really designed for skit bloggers like Mike and I (though it would still work great), but more for those who use their blog as kind of an open diary to the world or a chance to talk about current events, taking footage of themselves and the world around them. If this is someone you know, or if it is you (everyone deserves a Christmas present from themselves), you should read on.  

As you can see, this thing is designed with an ultra-cool 270 degree rotating lens so you can hold the camera and make sure you are in the shot while you are shooting, ensuring that your fans are never denied a moment of your smiling mug. When you want to play it back and see what you said about Lady Gaga’s most recent outfit, just rotate the screen horizontally and watch it in landscape orientation, making use of the whole 2.4″ screen.  Then, you can upload without cables using the built-in USB arm. Furthermore, it comes with a 360 degree panoramic lens accessory, a 4GB memory card, and it shoots in full 1080×1920 HD, making this ultra portable camera the real deal. Oh, and don’t worry, it is also available in blue and white, so even if pink isn’t really your color we’ve got you covered.

Check it out.
