Comments about Sony MHS-TS55 Bloggie Wifi, 3 inch touchscreen 12.8 MP still, 8GB Memory:
I bought this from the SONY store, and it works fine performance wise. Getting set-up was easy, and connecting to Wi-Fi was a breeze. The interface was very Simple and easy to learn. You can also connect to a phone's wireless hotspot as if it were Wi-fi. However, this is still supposed to be a Camera and a Video Camera. The quility was very dissapointing. The day photos I've taken came out OK at best. The video was good but taking pictures and videos in low light areas with the flash/ light on was horrible. Even with the light on it would somehow make the picture darker. I found that recording a video and taking a picture during the video actually comes out better lighting wise. Overall I wanted to like this product but couldn't convince myself to keep it. The Live Streaming was a gimmick that got me hooked. You need a Qik account, a free one but can only store 25 videos. So if you plan on only using this camera during the day, you might be okay. However, for those people who might want to film after the sun goes down, avoid this camera.
