Sony MHS-PM5 overview

  • 1Description

Sony's MHS-PM5 bloggie Camera (Violet) is an affordable and versatile HD pocket camcorder. Designed with social media posting in mind, the bloggie offers up a number of features and functions that lend themselves to the needs of those looking to make quick video clips and get them up on the web with ease. And, with Memory Stick and SD/SDHC memory card compatibility, the PM5 makes doing just that a breeze.

The MHS-PM5 records 1920 x 1080p high definition video and capture 5MP stills with its 5MP CMOS sensor and other useful functions like 4x digital zoom and individual "Movie" and "Still" buttons. Other resolution choices, such as 1280 x 720p, and standard definition 640 x 480, are selectable as well. The camera also features a 270° rotating lens which is great for self-recording and getting a unique perspective. And, when rotated, the lens automatically turns the camera on. The bloggie even provides more advanced features not typically seen on pocket camcorders like Face Detection and SteadyShot image stabilization.

When it's time to upload video or stills to the Internet, or simply time to charge, the PM5 features a built-in USB arm that lets you connect to your compatible PC or Mac. Sony's built-in PMB software comes in handy to help you do everything from uploading to editing.

1920 x 1080 HD Recording with 5MP Stills
The bloggie camera lets you record your favorite moments in High Definition MP4 (H.264) format and features a 5MP CMOS sensor that lets you take crisp 5MP still images. MP4 is a popular multimedia format that compresses the size of your audio and video, making your media files small enough to easily transfer to your compatible PC or Mac. MP4 is also highly compatible with the Web, so you can effortlessly upload your media to popular photo or video-sharing Web sites like Photobucket or YouTube 1
5MP CMOS Image Sensor
The integrated 5MP CMOS sensor enables the bloggie to take sharp 5MP still images in addition to HD MP4 video
Media Card Slot

Video Resolution
With the bloggie camera you can enjoy the flexibility of choosing to record and play back in either High Definition (1920 x 1080/30p, 1280 x 720/60p & 30p) or Standard Definition (640 x 480/30p) format
Built-In USB Arm
A built-in USB arm lets you connect your camera directly to your compatible PC/Mac to upload video and/or charge your battery without having to hunt for cables
2.4" LCD with Full-Screen Playback
The bloggie camera's horizontal playback feature lets you record video while holding the camcorder in its natural, upright position. When you want to play back your movies, simply rotate the camera into a landscape (horizontal) position to take full advantage of the 2.4" LCD display

SteadyShot image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake
Individual "Movie" and "Still" Buttons and Dual Capture
Enjoy the convenience of individual "Movie" and "Still" buttons that allow you to seamlessly switch from video recording to still photo capture with the simple press of a button
Built-in PMB Portable Software
With the pre-installed Picture Motion Browser (PMB) Portable software, the bloggie camera makes it easy to pre-select videos and images in the camera and conveniently upload them from the camera to a compatible PC and popular Internet sharing sites without the need for any additional software
Face Detection
Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural
Lightweight, Pocketable Design
Approximately 4.5 oz in weight, and 0.75" thick and 2.25" wide, the bloggie is ultra-compact and easy to carry in your bag or pocket
