  • Summary: The PM1 is a great looking gadget with plenty of fun features, plus a well-designed interface, which makes it easy to use. The video performance would benefit from tweaking though, and it’d be nice to see a few more connections/terminals added to its spec sheet.

Sony Webbie MHS-PM1

Macworld
19 August 2009
  • Excerpt: (1 items) It’s hard to think about camcorders without thinking about Sony, whose standard-sized camcorders have a devoted following. So it’s not surprising to see that Sony wants a piece of the pocket camcorder market, which is heating up. Sony’s pocket camcorder entry, the Webbie MHS-PM1 offers a few features that make it unique among other similar products, but it unfortunately falters where it counts the most: video image quality.
  • Pros: Easy top use controls, Offers 1080p video resolution, Good sound, Removable battery
  • Cons: No image stabilization or an external microphone jack, No HDMI output, Poor video quality, Zoom stutters

Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 camcorder

Techworld
12 May 2009
  • Summary: The versatile Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 camcorder is a good looker and provides plenty of control over your footage. It stands head and shoulders above the rest of the competition here, but we’re puzzled as to why Sony has saddled it with such a huge premium given the £150 pricing of headline-grabbers such as the Kodak and the Flip.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM1 camcorder review

Pocket Lint
26 February 2010
  • Excerpt: For those spur of the moment video clips, most of us are now well used to simply hoisting and pointing our camera phones at the activities taking place. That point hasn't been lost on electronics manufacturers who have of late been taking an "if you can't beat 'em join 'em" attitude and steadily shrinking actual camcorders down to phone size.
  • Pros: Swivelling lens compartment helps this one stand out from the crowd, inexpensive option for those wanting a portable yet solidly built HD recording device
  • Cons: Screen is small and poky, no HDMI connectivity, built-in microphone picks up operational noise and user adjustments, impossible to smoothly and seamlessly adjust angle of view of top-mounted lens compartment once filming has commenced

  • Excerpt: The Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 looks like a toy, but don't let its basic looks and controls fool you: the Webbie has the most well-rounded feature set we've seen.

Sony MHS-PM1 review

Stuff.tv
26 November 2009
  • Summary: Sony probably considers its arrival to the pocket camcorder party to be ‘fashionably late’, but in reality the MHS-PM1 is an awkward bystander to a conga dance led by the Kodak Zi8 . Not that it’ll go unnoticed for long – its David Dickinson orange finish catches the eye, and there’s also a novel twist with a lens that can be rotated 270 degrees. This helps to protect the lens, and makes it ideal if for those who like to dabble in video blogging.

  • Conclusion: Neat design is marred by mediocre quality and annoying foibles. It doesn’t take the crown from the Flip Mino HD
