Not so good

  • Summary: I have bought this last Christmas and used it only a few times. It is not a very good video camera and not a good photo camera. My iphone takes much better quality videos and photos. I regret spending the moneny on it.

Small, punches above its weight, issues in low light and audio.

  • Excerpt: "...large. The menu system is typical Sony - simple, intuitive and very easy to use. Settings are simple to understand; this is especially the case if you need to drop the resolution from 1080p to 720p and save space on the card. Needlesstosay, after the test runs, we took the unit to New York for the real thing. In low-light, pouring rain from the start this camera performed to an excellent standard. We took bus tours, boat trips and spent nights ...
  • Pros: Simple to use, great picture quality, good battery life .
  • Cons: Audio in the wind, screen - auto - rotation issues .

User Review

  • Summary: Got one for Christmas. Was immediately impressed by how easy to pick up and use this camera is. Perfect for slipping in your pocket and pulling out and shooting within seconds. BUT as soon as I played back any clips I'd made, there is a constant loud motor noise on all recordings. Seems obvious to me that the poorly configured on-board mic is recording the internal sound of the constantly (and slowly) auto focusing lens motor. Took it back to Jessops.
  • Pros: Couldn't be more intuitive to use.
  • Cons: Loud motor noise renders the audio of all recordings useless. Don't expect customer care from Sony.

Very easy to use. Good video quality.

  • Summary: A very robust little camcorder, very nice to the touch, takes about 5 minutes to get used to its settings as it is a very simple camera to use. Does not do well under direct sunlight is its only flaw. Changing to snapshot can be a little confusing.

No good in the house

K. Thompson "true_review", Amazon

  • Summary: We bought a Bloggie to record memories of our newborn baby, had we known though that the Bloggie is useless in the house (unless you have a spotlight or very bright lights), we've got a fitting with 5 60 watt bulbs which are still not bright enough). No doubt outside it'd be great. I wish we'd bought a camcorder that we knew would work indoors. On the upside it's very easy to work.

  • Summary: Bought this camera for simple blogging but did nit like the qulity of image, plugginf it directly into the computer was a joke and the software was fussy. Overall not suitaboe for waht i needed it for. however it was light, smart looking and simple to use - if that is waht you need.

Sony Bloggie Handycam MHS CM5V

ozzy, Amazon
1 December 2010
  • Summary: We bought this Handycam for our cruise in October 10, it is easy to use and switches on just by rotating the screen out, the images in daylight were brilliant and we took some of Venice as we sailed in at 6.30 am in near total darkness and were amazed at how well that came out although it sometimes took a few seconds to focus. It also takes good photos so we are very happy with this product and would recommend it.

Outside excellent, low light poor quality

  • Summary: Filiming outside with this camera produces excellent results, no complaints. However inside is not very good. Just trying to figure out how to edit the video it takes. Windows Movie Maker does not support MP4 which is what the camera films in.

Great little compact

C. Brown, Amazon

  • Summary: Filming in low light levels does highlight the unit's limitations, but for the price, the Sony Bloggie is hard to beat. Using an 8GB memory card will give you around 1:15hrs recording time at the highest resolution setting (1920 x 1080). Having used it on days out with friends and family it captures action in good detail, the colours being vibrant and as good as some other units on the market for a slightly higher price-tag.
