Sony came out with the Bloggie a few years ago, which was a great handheld device that can let you create live video. This year, the next itteration is the ability to forgo the computer and directly upload video via WiFi.
The Bloggie Live itself is an update of last years Bloggie Touch. You do have a nice big touchpanel on it. You have a 12 MP still image capture and 1080p /30 and 720p/60i. You can also do video and stills at the same time (but not while streaming).
“We keep the Bloggie very simple and easy to use,” says Amy. “The large red button remains, your power button and photo button are the other two. It is fully PC and Mac compatible.”
The fun comes in after you shoot. You can live stream into Qik (which needs to be set up ahead of time). People on Qik can send messages – you cannot respond, but you can see that information on the screen.
