Summary: I'll keep this short and to the point. The Bloggie MHS-CM5/VC is a poorly designed camera due to the fact that the auto-focus and mechanical noise of the camera is recorded on the audio track. It sounds like a muffled clicking/grinding/creaking noise. There is no external mic input.
Summary: I have bought this last Christmas and used it only a few times. It is not a very good video camera and not a good photo camera. My iphone takes much better quality videos and photos. I regret spending the moneny on it.
Summary: We bought a Bloggie to record memories of our newborn baby, had we known though that the Bloggie is useless in the house (unless you have a spotlight or very bright lights), we've got a fitting with 5 60 watt bulbs which are still not bright enough). No doubt outside it'd be great.
