Sony Bloggie Duo HD (MHS-FS2)

 

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.

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.

Sony MHS-FS2 Bloggie

 

Splendid design, Light enough to pocket. Easy to use

No instructions. No case. Very difficult to edit the clips. No help with how to deal with the pictures taken. On line help inadequate. Terminology and labels of icons impossible to understand.
