Sony Bloggie mhs-pm5
The video quality is very good. I am using the camcorder for mounting on my rc planes and shooting video from the air. If I mount it without a soft item in between the camera and the plane, the vibrations from the air and motor will make the image shaky. That was an easy fix. For rc use, the camera is a little larger and weighs a little more than the webbie, but it is a good alternative/upgrade from the webbie. I prefer the 720p setting with 60p because it seems to be less blurry if the camera moves from side to side really fast. The 1080p picture is really clear, but I would recommend using a tripod for 1080p filming as my hands did not seem stable enough to keep the picture from shaking. Also, the display screen is pretty small while recording. The date, time, and recording time take up alot of room. However, when you watch the playback on the bloggie's screen, it turns horizontally and takes up the entire screen. Overall, it is a good, small camera you can take anywhere. For the price, picture quality and size you cannot go wrong. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a camera to mount on their rc planes or even just for regular video taping. Read full review

Great durable 1080p camera for an unbeatable price.
The best thing about the PM5k Bloggie is the rotating lens. This is the main reason I was interested in this model. The rotating lens made this model very versatile as far as camera placement. I do wish that it had a brighter view screen and wider lenses but for $50, I can't complain too much. I've put my Bloggie on several torture test and it has passed with flying colors. I didn't realize how durable this camera was. It has been dropped, run over and wacked by my high speed off-road 8th scale buggy and it's still in one piece. I've also strapped in on as an on-board camera and did some high flying off-road. Rocks, dust and stones did not hurt the camera. I'm actually planning on buying another one as a gift.

Sony bloggie MHS-PM5 very nice
Small well thought out controls. Sony never will make a fully intuitive user interface. Maybe they could hire some Apple engineers. It didn't take long to figure out and it takes very nice videos. The device is a wonder of recent times. I remember when a (portable) Video Camera weighed over 10lbs. and took questionable grainy videos. One question I have and this is not unique to the Sony Camera is why in record mode the display is only 1/3 size. It does not utilize the whole screen. Why? For playback it does. This camera is high quality mini camera packed with useful features. It requires you dig deep into it's features to utilize all those great features. I would buy another if this one stops working.

Nice point and shoot camcorder but not perfect
Very intuitive to use, the swivel lense makes for easy blogging, vlogging, or simple recording. The power button can sometimes be a pain, sometimes have to push multiple times since it doesn't have a tactile button. Used it for a motorcycle helmet cam setup and the mic had no problems unlike other cameras which had distortion from wind/helmet noise. However I was disappointed in the 30 minute max movie length limit. I see this limit in digital point and shoot cameras that also do video, but this camera is advertised as a camcorder with emphasis on video so this was disappointing. Also when you hit the 30 min limit, it simply stops; would be nice if it simply stopped and started another file. If you aren't paying attention, you can easily miss out on a lot of action because it stopped recording after 30m. Low light performance is really bad. At night, you can barely see anything at all. When switching from 720p to 1080p there seems to be some issues with cropping or framing. Read full review

My experience so far has been good.
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.
