Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5K Review

 

Sony's Bloggie MHS-P5K promises 360-degree motion panoramas, but produces nauseating footage unfit for human consumption.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 Review

 

Sony's Bloggie MHS-PM5 offers 1080p resolution for a surprising price, but makes its share of tradeoffs to get there.

Review: Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5

 

A late entry into the pocket-camcorder field, Sony's Bloggie is overdesigned and underfunctional. The swiveling lens offers flexibility, but the slow and unintuitive controls make...

Rugged and tough, yet compact enough for easy pocketing. Swivel lens also works as a protective lens cover

Difficult to use single-handedly. Controls are unintuitive and slow to respond. Included PC software is limited

Sony bloggie PM5 review: Sony bloggie PM5

 

Sony bloggie PM5

Rotating lens; 1080p, 720p, VGA video options; one-touch video uploading to YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook; removable lithium ion rechargeable battery.

No Mac support for Picture Motion Browser software; no HDMI output; mono mic and no input for an external mic.

Sony gains ground against the minicamcorder competition with the Bloggie MHS-PM5, but its software and overall video quality keep it from moving ahead.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5

 

Silly name notwithstanding, the slick Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 is easy to use and delivers great image quality and solid features for an affordable HD pocket camcorder.

Low price. Sharp video and 5-megapixel still images. 2.4-inch LCD. 270-degree swiveling lens. Memory is expandable.

Only top half of display is viewable during video recording. No HDMI out for playback on HDTVs. No mic input or macro focusing feature.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 Review

 

Lift bow and arrow. Load arrow into bow. Take aim. Twang! And Sony hits another bulls-eye!

Quality: the camera is very subject to lens flare, so expect do some Photoshopping, post-shoot, to improve the contrast rendition in stills images.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5K HD pocket camcorder

 

A HD pocket camcorder with some interesting tricks up its extra-small sleeve

Good video in optimum conditions, attractive and sturdy design

Ghosting more prelevant than usual

The Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5K is a reasonable option for video bloggers and their assorted ilk. Serious videographers, on the other hand, will most likely need to look elsewhere.

Sony MHS-PM5K review

 

Sony's pocket-cam reboot, the ‘bloggie', has Full HD and shoots 360-degree movies. But can it make the Flip look a flop?

Perfect for video bloggers and a doddle to use, but image quality and design flaws spoil the party

Sony bloggie PM5 review

 

For a company that's long been entrenched in the camcorder space, Sony's pocket video cameras have always been off target in terms of features and usability. The Bloggie MHS-PM5 minicamcorder, however, at least shows improvement and a better...
