  • Excerpt: Best of all, the PM5 has rather a killer app in the inclusion of a 360-degree lens attachment (see panel below). Click this on top of the normal lens and its internal mirror reflects a 360-degree panorama image to be recorded.

Review: Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5

Wired
4 December 2010
  • Pros: Rugged and tough, yet compact enough for easy pocketing. Swivel lens also works as a protective lens cover.
  • Cons: Difficult to use single-handedly. Controls are unintuitive and slow to respond. Included PC software is limited.

  • Excerpt: Lift bow and arrow. Load arrow into bow. Take aim. Twang! And Sony hits another bulls-eye! As with the exceptional Sony DSC-HX5V movie/pano/burst rate camera, I was completely blown away with the Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5!

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
14 June 2010
  • Summary: Sony has taken several steps forward since it debuted its first pocket camcorders last year, but it's also taken a step back. While $149 is a good price for a pocket cam with these specs, the Bloggie MHS-PM5's design is more difficult to use than its predecessor.

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5K Review

Digitaltrends
21 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Panoramas do not have to be frozen in time any more. Sony’s latest pocket camcorder, the swiveling MHS-PM5K, captures a full 360-degree field of view with a simple add-on lens, producing playable panoramas that you can literally look around in as you watch.
  • Pros: Shoots full 1080p video, 5-megapixel stills, Swiveling lens provides protection, versatility, Compact and lightweight, Large 2.4-inch screen, Reasonably priced, Accepts SD and Memory Stick Pro Duo cards
  • Cons: Subpar video quality, Dismal quality on panoramic videos, Pronounced rolling shutter effect, motion blur, No HDMI output, Awkwardly placed record button, 29-minute recording cap

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 Review

Digitaltrends
15 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Sony’ latest entry into the booming pocket camcorder market pairs a 1080p image sensor with a unique lens that swivels 270 degrees up and down. While novel, lightweight and surprisingly affordable at $150, we found the Bloggie PM5 can’t match the video quality of many less endeavoring pocket cams.
  • Pros: Shoots full 1080p video, 5-megapixel stills, Swiveling lens provides protection, versatility, Compact and lightweight, Large 2.4-inch screen, Reasonably priced, Accepts SD and Memory Stick Pro Duo cards
  • Cons: Subpar video quality, Pronounced rolling shutter effect, motion blur, No HDMI output, Awkwardly placed record button, 29-minute recording cap
