• 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.
