Review: Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5

Wired
26 August 2010
  • Excerpt: In keeping with the company’s general direction of late, Sony’s entry into the pocket camcorder market is overdesigned and underfunctional. The big draw with Sony’s Bloggie versus, say, similar offerings from Flip, Creative or Kodak is the inclusion of a swiveling lens, which gives the user immense...
  • Pros: Rugged and tough, yet compact enough for easy pocketing. Swivel lens also works as a protective lens cover.
  • Cons: Difficult to use single-handedly. Controls are unintuitive and slow to respond. Included PC software is limited.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 Review

  • Excerpt: Panoramas do not have to be frozen in time any more. Sony’s latest pocket camcorder, the swiveling MHS-PM5K, captures a full 360-degree field of view with a simple add-on lens, producing playable panoramas that you can literally look around in as you watch.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 Review

Digitaltrends
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony’ latest entry into the booming pocket camcorder market pairs a 1080p image sensor with a unique lens that swivels 270 degrees up and down. While novel, lightweight and surprisingly affordable at $150, we found the Bloggie PM5 can’t match the video quality of many less endeavoring pocket cams.
  • Pros: Shoots full 1080p video, 5-megapixel stills, Swiveling lens provides protection, versatility, Compact and lightweight, Large 2.4-inch screen, Reasonably priced, Accepts SD and Memory Stick Pro Duo cards
  • Cons: Subpar video quality, Pronounced rolling shutter effect, motion blur, No HDMI output, Awkwardly placed record button, 29-minute recording cap

  • Summary: Den inbyggda USB-kontakten är platsbesparande, men kärvar ibland. Den vändbara linsen är smart och gör att man inte saknar vridbar display. Detta är den enda spelaren i testet som saknar HDMI-utgång.
