Sony Bloggie Duo HD (MHS-FS2)

 

Inexpensive. Excellent video quality. Plenty of recording options. LED flash. Dual LCDs make self portraits easy

Big. Strange color options. Antiquated interface. Auto-focusing is only a workaround

With its second front-facing display, Sony's Bloggie Duo (MHS-FS2) is a near-perfect pocket camcorder for self-shooters. But if it the best performance you're after, the Bloggie Touch still reigns supreme.

Sony MHS-FS2 Bloggie

 

Compact and easy to use. Quality of video and stills excellent. Second screen on front of camera makes self portraits and introductory/titling shots for video simple

1.pity a carrying case is not provided with cammera ; 2.a flash facility would be useful ; 3.deleting video and stills can be confusing ; 4.MP4 recording format means conversion software needed before buring video to DVD
