Obviously you lost the optical zoom and LED light in the process. This makes it an outdoor-use only camera. You could still use it for particular events outside that may be worth capturing, and then easily processing it through the flash memory card it comes with expandable properties (up to 16GB). Aside from that, forget entirely about shooting indoors and other uses.
This model of Sony camcorder can record in H.264 high definition, and allows for 1440×1080/30p, 1280×720/30p and in SD (640×480/30p) format, and a selection between 5 shooting or scene modes that include Lowlight settings, but I’m not sure about the quality. The interface is user friendly with the buttons ‘Movie’ and ‘Still’ that lets you switch easily between modes.
Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 HD downsides
Other downside is that you have to pan slowly, otherwise the image will distort and yes, even pixelate a bit. At least the format of the video files is supported by iMovie and iPhoto since there’s always a certain yellowing of the shots. The 4X digital zoom has this same problem too, and it makes it frustratingly less versatile.
The advantage of the removable battery is that it can last 2 hours straight of shooting video, which makes it superior to Flip cameras that can barely shoot 60 minutes.
Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 HD camcorder features
This model features a swivel lens that allows you to shoot from all angles, to a maximum of 270°, including filming yourself. You can also take 5 megapixels stills which can be improvable but this quality is acceptable.
However, Flip cameras still take the cake regarding video quality in low light and night settings, and the audio picks sound really loud, even when you swivel the lens, so you’ll have to take extra care or that will mean more editing work for later.
