Sony MHS-PM5KP Bloggie High Definition Handycam Camcorder, review of SONY Bloggie

High Definition
1

Excellent pleasurable camera, but with problems. This is nonetheless another addition to the pocket camcorder/digicam current market. I have now reviewed the kodak zi8 kodak zi8 high definition pocket movie digicam – black which was frequently a really superior item. The sony is scaled-down and lighter, and the lens folds away to defend it. The sony’s major marketing factors show up to be the 360 degree operate, and the moveable, angled, camera head. To make use of the 360 function, you have to load the sony software package to your computer system. This, as so generally, did not go easily. In fairness, it could have been my pc (while it does have a rapid pentium processor) but i have uncovered digicam manufacturer’s software program to be missing in simplicity of use and transfer commonly. I prefer to stick with my personal program so that the pc will not turn out to be burdened with as well lots of various varieties. Anyway, as soon as i received it to work, had snapped on the 360 degree adaptor, and taken even now and movie photographs, i had a appear at the final results on the computer. Very poor definition, very little like the top quality i had hoped for but this is frankly far far too modestly priced a camera to seriously anticipate in any other case. The angled head is anything useful while. I took video clip of my cat hiding in a box and currently being foolish (like cats do) with just the digital camera head poking more than the major of the box the benefits have been superior.

Digital camera, camcorder or gimmick??. To begin with, for clarification, the sony bloggie arrived to me via the amazon vine programme, so you should browse with caution. That said i was searching ahead to having my fingers on the pretty a lot state of the artwork & pocket sized system from the entire world leader in this field, so what are my ideas???properly, blended to be honest. There is minimal stage examining the technical capabilities of the device, for if you are right here, you now know what it can and are not able to do. Developed as the title sugeests for ‘bloggers’ the machine definitely gives extreme portability & superb ease of use (i managed to add a motion picture clip in seconds – pretty a feat for a initially time person) – the device is 1 of the most straightforward level and shoot camcorders i’ve encountered with a fairly intuitive interface for switching sort capturing to viewing, storing to deleting. My initial gripe was the viewing panel on the reverse of the product – with these types of a modest screen you have to truly aim on your concentrate on item and keep the camera properly in eye shot to keep every thing in body, so the item is only really productive inside pretty a slender vary. With so a lot of pocket cams on the sector sony’s differentiator in this article rides on the 270° swivel lens. This characteristic i did come across relatively entertaining. When you swivel the lens round to encounter downwards, the lens is proficiently concealed inside the camcorder. As quickly as you spin the lens spherical, the camcorder automatically switches on, then switches off yet again when you flip it back again spherical to experience downwards, so no prospect of operating your batteries flat by mistake.

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Slim, compact MHS-PM5/PM5K and MHS-CM5 capture 1920×1080 Full HD MP4 video clips and 5 megapixel still photos
  • Beautiful, eye-catching styling and premium features

  • Embedded PMB Portable software and built-in USB connector for quick, easy web uploads via PC and Macintosh
  • Shoot and view amazing 360 Videos (MHS-PM5K only)

Two things stand out:a/ the viewfinder screen is very weak and although there is a brighter backlight setting you have to set this each time; i. It does not stay on that setting;b/ the camera supplied did not have the 360 lens but as i didn’t want this particularly i didn’t send the camera back for replacement. Otherwise it works well for me.

Stay it – shoot it – share it – but will you regret it?. Alright, allows start out with the noticeable. It is sony so the develop quality is brilliant. Nonetheless when you begin to use it the regrets can come flooding in. The swivel lens is a fantastic idea, but rarely groundbreaking. The 360 degree attachement is definitely the attribute that will provide this camera. The software program is a tiny unusual to use, but with time will appear as 2nd character, and you can constantly as other reviewers have pointed out just pop it in the laptop or computer on the memory stick. The image high quality is having said that what allows the blogie down. Everything else is wonderful, size okay similar to an aged cell cellular phone, okay my new iphone has a digicam, but not with 360 degree performance.

I really like this compact tiny camera. It has a swivel lens that offers wonderful angles for all types of pictures and it is totally excellent for blogging and normal use on the laptop. The photo high-quality is incredibly sharp and it is very basic to use, which include connection to any computer. The only quibble it that i do not truly get the 360 degree filming and there is no guide tips on how to get the best from this purpose.

Live it – shoot it – share it – but will you regret it?. Ok, lets start with the obvious. It is sony so the build quality is awesome. However when you start to use it the regrets can come flooding in. The swivel lens is a great idea, but hardly revolutionary. The 360 degree attachement is undoubtedly the feature that will sell this camera. The software is a little strange to use, but with time will come as second nature, and you can always as other reviewers have pointed out just pop it in the computer on the memory stick. The image quality is however what lets the blogie down. Everything else is fine, size ok similar to an old mobile phone, ok my new iphone has a camera, but not with 360 degree functionality.

This is a really great camera. It worked straight out of the box, no setting up required and the battery was fully charged when it arrived so no waiting. I didn’t have to look at the instructions. The only thing that stops this package being perfect is that the software that comes with the camera is a bit strange, but i found you can by-pass the software and put the memory stick directly into my laptop and can view the footage directly without needing the software. Really enjoy using it and have managed to catch some really good home videos on it in great quality. Strange ‘fish-eye’ lense, quirky but i can’t think of a reason for using it yet. I have showed it to my mum and she is thinking of getting one (she’s 60) as it’s so easy to use and has a nice large viewing screen.

With so many pocket cams on the market sony’s differentiator here rides on the 270° swivel lens. This feature i did find somewhat entertaining. When you swivel the lens round to face downwards, the lens is effectively hidden inside the camcorder.

Starting with the good stuff, the camera is lovely. The new sony bloggie is definitely a step up from the older mhs-pm1, the finish is better – a lovely deep metallic purple with shiny metal highlights – a larger screen and joy of joys, a supplied 4gb memory stick. I can even remember it’s name without having to refer to the packaging. The smart little snap-on panoramic lens adds another layer of creative possibilities too. Given it’s point and shoot credentials movie quality is good in decent light (just don’t go expecting blu-ray levels of detail) but as expected tails off in poor light. The difference between 1080 and 720 movie setting was minimal, so i left it at 720 which to me seemed a little smoother. Sound quality surprisingly is loud and clear but being non-directional picks up all sound in the immediate area. Still image quality is ok, but easily bettered by dedicated digital stills camera and there’s also a bit of shutter lag when pressing the button.

Good initially, but failed after approx one year. . I don’t think of myself as a gadget sort of person, but i have to admit, i really like this bloggie. I won’t go into technical details like some other reviewers. Instead, i’ll say what i use this device for and how it copes. What caught my eye about the bloggie was the 360 degree filming capability. As somebody who spends time in both dance schools and horse-riding schools, i wondered whether putting the bloggie in the middle of each type of school and filming the activity would allow useful recordings to be made so that people could see what they were doing well and what they could improve at. So, dance or ride around the school and then see a 360 degree view of what had been done. In practice, that’s not so practical. The bloggie records the 360 degree view using a clip on attachment, but replaying the recording on the bloggie does not produce anything remotely useful.

A nice little fun camera, but has issues for the price. This is a very smart little device, with sony’s usual high build quality. Very simple to use, just press ‘record’ and you’re off. Picture quality is excellent, and the rotating lens is a great idea that allows you to film stuff at odd angles, or even yourself. The 360 attachement is great fun, though you might find it not worth the extra cash. It is basically just a conical mirror that attaches over the lens, allowing you film in all directions at once. You can then use the software that comes with the camera to ‘unwrap’ the cylindrical image, giving you a super-wide angle picture. The quality suffers, as you might expect, but the novelty value more than makes up for it. It’s lots of fun, and you can get some great effects with it. I’m imagining things like holding it up above your head at a party and filming everything, or leaving it running in the middle of a table at a family meal and filming the whole thing.

Good fun camera, but with issues. This is yet another addition to the pocket camcorder/camera market. I have already reviewed the kodak zi8 kodak zi8 hd pocket video camera – black which was generally a very good item. The sony is smaller and lighter, and the lens folds away to protect it. The sony’s main selling points appear to be the 360 degree function, and the moveable, angled, camera head. To make use of the 360 function, you have to load the sony software to your computer. This, as so often, did not go smoothly. In fairness, it may have been my pc (although it does have a fast pentium processor) but i have found camera manufacturer’s software to be lacking in ease of use and transfer generally. I prefer to stick with my own software so that the pc doesn’t become burdened with too many different types. Anyway, once i got it to work, had snapped on the 360 degree adaptor, and taken still and video images, i had a look at the results on the computer. Poor definition, nothing like the quality i had hoped for; but this is frankly far too modestly priced a camera to really expect otherwise. The angled head is something useful though. I took video of my cat hiding in a box and being silly (like cats do) with just the camera head poking over the top of the box; the results were good.
