A HD pocket camcorder with some interesting tricks up its extra-small sleeve

Good Gear Guide.au

  • 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

26 August 2010
  • Excerpt: In keeping with the company’s general direction of late, Sony’s entry into the pocket camcorder market is overdesigned and underfunctional. The big draw with Sony’s Bloggie versus, say, similar offerings from Flip, Creative or Kodak is the inclusion of a swiveling lens, which gives the user immense...
  • 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

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
