Sony Press Release
Tough new Bloggie™ Sport keeps pace with the action
10 January 2012
Fun, colourful Full HD snap camera from Sony is waterproof, dustproof and shockproof
* Mobile HD snap camera shoots Full HD (1920x1080 30p) video and 5.1 megapixel still photos
* Waterproof*1, dustproof*2 and shockproof*3 with tough, colourful sports styling
* 6.7cm/2.7” touchscreen LCD can be operated underwater

From parties, gigs and fun days out to adventure-packed holidays: the new MHS-TS22 Bloggie™ Sport from Sony keeps pace with whatever’s happening. Shooting Full HD videos and detail-packed stills at the touch of a button, the tough new HD snap camera even shrugs off water, dust, sand and shocks.
Boasting a colourful new look, Bloggie™ Sport is ruggedly styled with gently curved lines for a sure, comfortable grip. It’s waterproof*1, withstanding immersion in 5m of water for up to an hour. You can even use the touchscreen while you’re snorkelling or diving: there’s also a special underwater shooting mode that adjusts colour balance for beautifully natural results. Ideal for active lifestyles, Bloggie™ Sport handles drops*2 from a height of 1.5m, or dusty*3 conditions on the beach or mountainside.
Bloggie™ Sport is brilliantly simple and fun to use, whatever you’re doing. Shoot with the camera in portrait or landscape position: the informative on-screen display ‘flips’ automatically for comfortable viewing in either orientation.
With its bright autofocus/automacro lens and sensitive Exmor CMOS sensor, Bloggie™ Sport shoots clear, beautiful images in any situation – even at dusk or indoors. SteadyShot keeps images stable and blur-free, while Face Detection keeps portraits crisp and clearly exposed. Dual Record lets you grab still photos without interrupting video recording. If you’re shooting after dark, a built-in LED throws more light on arm’s-length self-portraits and close-up shots.
Video footage captured in Full HD mode (1920x1080/30p) is perfect for viewing on your HD TV or PC. There’s also an HD mode (1280x720/30p); HD Sports mode (1280x720/60p) for fast-moving subjects; and Lite mode (480x270/30p) for super-quick uploads to social networking sites. A generous 4GB of internal memory gives space to store around 2 hours of HD video.
If you’re shooting in a hurry, the handy ‘Share-it-Later’ function lets you tag clips and still images via the touchscreen for easy uploads to Facebook, YouTube or PlayMemories Online™ when you’re back home.
Sharing your memories couldn’t be easier. Connect Bloggie™ Sport to your PC via the camera’s built-in USB arm that also recharges the camera’s built-in battery. Full compatibility with PlayMemories Home™ software by Sony makes it beautifully easy to upload videos and stills to your favourite sharing sites. PlayMemories Home™ can be installed via the camera’s Setup Guide website. It’s accessible at http://www.sony.net/start/bloggie or from a shortcut on the camera’s internal memory.
An HDMI port connects Bloggie™ Sport to your HD TV or compatible PC for a big-screen view of your photos and videos.
PlayMemories Online™ starts from Spring 2012. The new MHS-TS22 Bloggie™ Sport by Sony is available in United Kingdom and France from March 2012.
