Sony Bloggie MHS-PM1 camcorder - Pocket-lint

 

Teenagers and the young at heart will love the convenience of the frill free PM1, and if they have to fork out for it themselves, the price. Grown ups

Swivelling lens compartment helps this one stand out from the crowd, inexpensive option for those wanting a portable yet solidly built HD recording device

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

Users are more likely to get a naturalistic performance from their subjects (particularly the smaller members of the family) if approaching them with a camcorder with a diminutive form factor such as this - arguably less intimidating than a "proper"...

Sony MHS-PM1 review

 

Sony's lifejacket-orange pocket camcorder certainly catches the eye. But will its video performance grab your attention?

A snappy dresser, but sadly the footage the PM1 captures isn’t nearly as sharp as its livery

Great for shooting video of yourself, but we prefer the simplicity of Flip's UltraHD.

Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 review

 

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.

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.

Sony MHS–PM1

 

The Sony MHS–PM1 is one of first and most exciting entry is the mini type of a camcorder, for taking home videos and pictures for future reference and memories. This camcorder captures videos at reasonable resolution; hence, quality videos and pictures...

Sony MHS-PM1 HD camera review

 

Sony's MHS-PM1 HD camera offers 1080p (1440 x 1080) HD video recording at 30 frames per second in MP4 format...

Probably the best of its type

Poor still images and does little more than a cameraphone

Overall this device is about video and if you are after this type of device, then this is definitely one to consider.

Sony MHS-PM1 review

 

A decent budget camcorder, but nothing spectacular

Feels great in the hand, rotating lens

Lack of decent storage, washy images

Sony MHS-PM1

 

Sony comes a little late to the pocket-sized camcorder party. It's following in the tracks of the Flip family, Kodak's Zi8 and Creative's Vado. The PM1 has a distinctive orange livery and a rotating lens that'll ensure it gets noticed. HD movies are...

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...

Sony MHS-PM1

 

Sony's first pocket video camera boasts 1080p recording and a neat, swivelling lens

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

Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 camcorder

 

The flashy Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 camcorder comes with a vastly over the top price tag given that it's onsale in the US for $170, but it also offers far more features than most flash camcorders we've seen.

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...
