Sony Webbie HD MHS-CM1 Camcorder Review

 

With the instability of today's economy, it's perhaps fortuitous that Sony decided to push more heavily into the ultra-budget camcorder market in 2009. This year's Consumer Electronics Show saw the introduction of the Sony Webbie HD MHS-CM1, a...

When compared to the competition, there aren't a lot of compelling reasons to choose Sony's new entry into the ultra-budget YouTube market. The Sony Webbie HD MHS-CM1 is inexpensive, but it's not nearly as easy to use or as easy on the eyes as the...

Sony MHS-CM1

 

The new "Webbie" series is Sony's attempt to steal back some of the thunder that Pure Digital's Flip camcorders have brought to an otherwise dull camcorder scene. The Flip, which now controls a healthy share of the under-$200 market, revitalized...

There are a lot of things to like about the Sony MHS-CM1. The price makes it very accessible, the colors pop (there's a purple model in addition to the pumpkin-colored version seen here), and it's simpler to use than the average Sony camcorder. Those...

Sony MHS-CM1

 

Traditional horizontal model with low price, easy high def recording, and simple uploading

Strong color accuracy; Excellent sharpness

Simply terrible low light results; No manual controls whatsoever

Lack of Image Stabilization

 

I tried several similar gadgets, and found out that Sony Webbii has the best HD quality. At the same time, lack of image stabilization left me speechless. Almost all picture cameras have image stabilization today. And this is done for fraction of the...

Not There Yet

 

Not a recommended product. A visit to W__-Mart showed their sales tech was keen enough to disable the power for their display unit so it didn't work. Anyone seeing one in operation would likely not buy it. My Olympus T6000 camera has better video...

Inexpensive ; Lightweight ; Intuitive menu and simple to use ; 5x zoom

Washed-out color and gamma of videos ; Constantly adjusting focus and exposure ; Poor low light performance (only good for outdoors) ; 720P is best resolution possible and it doesn't look good ; NOT 1080 capable and 1080 looks worse than the 720 ; Same...

"BAAD" Digital Camcorder, To Hot to handle

 

This stinking cam corder gets too hot to hold then freezes up and stops working. It becomes a small hot potato. The software that it comes with is useless. Had to download another program elsewhere. Its claim that it is compatable with UTUBE format,...

Consumer review by: muteq (dell.com)

Would not recommend in the least.

 

Pros: Lightweight, easy to use, nice zoom Cons: grainy and whiteout in low light conditions, bad stablization, must be extremely still to take photos, overall picture quality 1 out of 10. Conclusion: Had I taken it out and used it when I bought it, I...
