- Good digital image stabilization
- Face detection for video and stills
- Swivel screen is great for odd-angle shots
- 5X optical zoom lens
- Disappointing video, especially in low light
- Bulkier than most pocket camcorders
At A Glance
The 1080p-shooting Sony Bloggie MHS-CM5 has a pistol-grip design and a 5X optical zoom lens, but it doesn't match the performance of similarly priced pocket camcorders.
