The Bloggie Touch is the latest update to Sony's Bloggie range which has been trying to niggle its way into the pocket-camcorder market, and it seems, at last that they've hit a winner. With clean simple lines, the Bloggie Touch uses a large clear 3-inch touchscreen to display the videos and stills, has a built in USB port and can offer HD 360 panoramic video recording.

Once you've shot all your HD footage you can then plug it straight into the computer and upload almost instantly to the social networking site of your choice, from YouTube to Facebook. It has 8GB of internal memory which will give you a respectable 4hours shooting time at 1080p, or 29mins if you decide to shoot your own epic for the silver screen. Of course a lot of the specs will only work if the price is right, and with hugely impressive figures like this, be wary of a possibly considerable price tag.

Has the Bloggie Touch persuaded you away from the other pocket camcorders on the market? Let us know on Facebook or Twitter.
