  • Excerpt: The second bonus is a lens that swivels to point either way, which can be exceedingly handy if you’re a lonely soul out filming yourself. Cleverly the video auto-orientates even if you flip the lens over during a recording. And Sony’s software (see panel) assists rapid uploads to YouTube, so you can try to make friends that way. Best of all, the PM5 has rather a killer app in the inclusion of a 360-degree lens attachment (see panel below).

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5 Review

  • 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! Even if you already own a DSLR or two, perhaps a compact digicam and maybe an HD camcorder, this one will fire up your acquisitive hormones. I want one!

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. Had Sony kept the record buttons in an easy-to-reach place (and thrown in HDMI output), it would have been a more worthy competitor to the easier-to-use, full HD Kodak Playsport ($149).

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. When you’re done, snap it off and you’re back to shooting true 1080p video.
  • 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. The Bloggie shoots true 1080p video and 720p video at 60 frames per second, with SteadyShot electronic image stabilization and 4x digital zoom.
  • 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

  • Summary: Den inbyggda USB-kontakten är platsbesparande, men kärvar ibland. Den vändbara linsen är smart och gör att man inte saknar vridbar display. Detta är den enda spelaren i testet som saknar HDMI-utgång. Stillbilder blir över förväntan i god belysning, men videomaterialet blir ryckigt vid snabba rörelser och resultatet i svag belysning blir inte godkänt. Smidigaste mjukvarulösningen då program för datorn finns i kameraminnet och inte behöver installeras.
