In order to compete with the Flip Mino camcorder, Sony launched Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 HD  on the market, basically the mini version of the MHS-CM1 model shaped into this candy-bar format

Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 HDObviously 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.

Overall, this model is meant to be used as a second or even third camera if you don’t want to sweat it much when going to an event and filming a bit of what’s happening.
