In Pictures: Best new camcorders at CES '10

Introducing the camcorder cream of the crop...

Sony Bloggie HD MHS-PM5

The Sony Bloggie HD MHS-PM5 is a pocket-sized camcorder tailor-made for Internet bloggers. Unlike most pocket cams, the HD MHS-PM5 has the ability to shoot 1080p video at 30 frames per second, or 720p video at 60 fps. (This should give image quality a substantial boost.) Footage is saved as MPEG-4 video using the H.264 codec.

Other highlights include a 270-degree rotating lens (perfect for adjusting stationary shots), a built-in USB connector (for offloading clips to a computer) and a simple, beginner-friendly control scheme. It also has the ability to play clips in landscape mode on its 2.4in LCD screen.

Interestingly, the Bloggie HD MHS-PM5 is compatible with SD/SDHC cards, as well as Sony's Memory Stick format (previous Sony handycams have only supported the latter.)

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
