Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5K is a fun camera for bloggers

Sony Bloggie MHS-PM5K

The Bloggie MHS-PM5K is a new pocket-sized Mobile HD Snap Camera from Sony. It can shoot 5.0 mega pixel photos and up to 1920 x 1080 full HD movies.

Here's the Bloggie's On/Off button, zoom lever (digital zoom only) and the Jack cover which reveals the USB for charging.

On the other side, you'll find the memory card and battery compartment. The Bloggie supports Memory Stick and SDHC/SD memory cards.

The Bloggie has a 270 degrees rotating lens and comes with a 360 video lens which you can snap on to the Bloggie to take 360 degree panoramas. Your footage will be converted into a long strip of video showing all 360 degree angles with the supplied software. See the video below.

Here's a video taken with the Bloggie. The video quality isn't great. There's no optical zoom but the digital zoom is just about acceptable. And the video keeps flickering for no apparent reason. It could be there's a fault with the Bloggie I received from Sony.



And here's one using the 360 video lens which is my favourite feature of the Bloggie. Check out the video. It's really cool!

The Bloggie MHS-PM5K is available in Violet, White, Blue and Pink and costs around S$399.

IZ, I've played with that Bloggie camera over here, but I never knew this new version came with a 360 lens. Despite it's simplicity features, that 360 feature is something I'd really love. I'll have to investigate this camera a little more :)
