MHSTS20SSony announces it has re-designed its popular Bloggie camcorder into a new model, the MHS TS22 Bloggie Sport Camera, with more rugged features for outdoor adventurers.

The Bloggie Sport Camera looks like a standard smartphone, but is dustproof, shock-proof when dropped from as much as five feet and waterproof to a depth of 16 feet (4.9 meters). The camera will shoot 5.1-megapixel stills and record as much as two hours of 1080p Full-HD video with its 4GB of on-board memory. It also features a 2.7-inch touchscreen display, image stabilization technology and face detection. Sony’s Bloggie Sport Camera is listed for $179.99.
