We thank Sony for flip-style compact design camcorder like Sony Bloggie MHS-CM5. However, the compact design feels bigger. The Bloggie MHS-CM5 measures 4-inch tall, 2.8-inch wide and 1.6-inch deep and it weighs 6.9 Oz. The CM5 camcorder has a pistol-grip design with a flip-fold LCD display. It can easily fit in loose pant pockets and small bag, but it cannot fit in tight pant pockets.
Sony has not performed well in growing low budget pocket camcorder until now. Flip Video has a good hold in market with its candy bar design vertical camcorders and its price ranges from $150 to $250. Sony’s NSC-GC1 Net-sharing Webbie camcorder was a big flop. Now, Sony is back with new pocket camcorder Sony Bloggie MHS-CM5, which has pistol-grip design like cameras from Aiptek and Sanyo. The Bloggie has same features like its predecessor Webbie, which include lithium ion battery, 2.5-inch flip LCD, 5x optical zoom and 1080p video capture. The advantages of this Bloggie are mini-HDMI connector for HD video output and onboard USB connector. You can simply plug this USB connector in computer’s USB port without a cable. The Bloggie can be charged through USB connection to computer.
