Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 HD Camcorder : I wanted to like it more than I did

This is fun to take videos or pictures. Easy to operate, fun color, battery lasts a long time.

It came without a memory card. With the 12m internal memory, you can barely test the camcorder. So i have to buy a sony memory card and test it. It is not compatible with general sd card. The picture option can take pictures at a 5m size, ok clear as well. It does not have a memery card. The sound is ok but not awesome. The camera seems to set up for distant objects. If you want to take a picture of yourself by holding the camcorder, not that clear and the head is huge. When you take pictures in the dark, it does not light up.

For a reasonably cheap camera this is a really handy little thing. The quality is fine, there is no loud buzzy noise so i am quite happy with my purchase. The only down side is the memory card it uses. It’s not included and you can only use the memory stick pro duo that has a slightly different shape than the regular (cheeper) memory cards. I haven’t read the instruction manual but i have been able to figure most things out by now.

I wanted to like it more than i did. Could be a classic w/ the swivel head & sturdy build though.

The sony webbie is also know as the ‘mobile hd snap’. As you consider package deals, try to get one that includes the specialized battery and charger, because this camera won’t charge it internally using the usb port as some cameras offer. Also look for deals that include the ‘memory stick pro duo’, because the internal memory does not store very much time. Although not as common as compactflash, these memories (offered in different storage sizes from 4 gb to 32 gb) are also offered by sandisk and lexar, as well as sony. Deals for the webbie should be less expensive than the bloggie which was introduced later. I found the manual supplied with the camera so brief as to be confusing or even incomplete. Obtain the manual available at [. This is important because you pre-set the way you want the camera to work, so you just swivel the lens to turn the camera on, then press ‘movie’ or ‘photo’ to get the shot or start the recording. My prime use is aerial filming with the webbie velcroed to an rc helicopter.

Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 HD Camcorder (Violet) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) : I use this in an elementary school and it is user friendly and affordable. The quality is good as well.

I wasn’t looking for a high end video camera, just to take pictures of the gang hanging out and maybe playing ball etc. It does that and i think the videos come out great. The still photos are really good as well. For the money couldn’t beat this item.

The price was wonderful, for what i was looking for, its easy to use,recomend this for anyone who is looking for something small and quality hd.

Also a good all also delivery goodshas been re-purchase.

Great product we bought this as a gift and we heard that this worked very well so i would definitely recommend this.

This camera has lasted so long. I’ve had it for about 4+ years now. I dont use it as often as i should, but it still works like a charm when i do.

Sony makes some great products and this is one of them. The only thing i’m not overly fond of is that there is no light source. If you’re taking pictures/movies at night, don’t expect them to be bright and clear. With that in mind, know what you’re buying. Some day soon i’m sure all these little camcorders will have that option on them. It’s light and is very easy to use.

Easy to use and replaced one i ruined with exposure to water. Easier than using a phone and photos are clear.

Kept getting error’s with this camera. Not something i would again.
