Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood


    Rotating lens; 1080p, 720p, VGA video options; one-touch video uploading to YouTube, MySpace, and Facebook; removable lithium ion rechargeable battery.


    No Mac support for Picture Motion Browser software; no HDMI output; mono mic and no input for an external mic.


    Sony gains ground against the minicamcorder competition with the Bloggie MHS-PM5, but its software and overall video quality keep it from moving ahead.

My experience so far has been good.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I think this is a great product. The picture quality is excellent. it is easy to use. Battery life is suitable. And the price was good.

Why did I buy it? I was looking at one on my RC magazine. There was a flyer who uses it to capture his heli in flight.

I use it in the field while flying RC Helis and sometime as a dash-cam.

What do I dislike? There is no power cord, you have to use a laptop or other "USB" to charge it up.

I have it right here at my pc admiring the Art Form and I am an Artist

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

About that Sony boggie MHS-PM5 : Well I am a photographer and I also post short videos on utube and facebook.I was using my Canon XL1 (TOOO BIG) for the jobs but that did not really call for such a tall order. Short interviews,musical presentations, family vids, only requires a bit if you have a SIMPLE video camera,good lighting and nice photo editing software. This is the camera I needed.I can also tell you get more than you expect and not to set your standards to!to! high unless you are just plan to stay an amateur cheap or stupid. For the price,,think about it,,I paid $100 bucks for a nice deal.Sony is the best to work with even compared to Canon. You need good light with any subject any time even infrared requires some sort of beam. KISS "Keep It Simple Skillfully" Little common sense and patients and Pinnacle Studio 14 Editing Software The (Sony bloggie MHS-PM5) will be perfect.Check out some of my videos on Utube search Dwainart and you will see what I do with the video cameras.
