Today while looking at various camcorder blogs, I came across a few Sony Webbie reviews. And after reading these, I thought I’d look at this a little more closely. The Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 is a very popular shoot-and-share mini camcorder on the market, similar to Flip Video Ultra HD, Flip Video Mino HD or Kodak Zi8. I was under the early impression that the Kodak Zi8 was the only camacorder out of this group that shoots in true 1080p, and I was wrong. The Sony Webbie MHS-PM1 can shoot 1080p or 720p, it is also similar to the Kodak Zi8 in the fact that you can have expandable memory depending on your needs (granted it has to be Memory Stick PRO Duo).

One feature that stands this out of the pack is the ability to ‘flip’ the lense so when shooting yourself, you can watch the display. Both the Flips and the Kodak do not do this. Watching a few video reviews on this camera, there have been several mentions of the mic picking up chassis sound. Meaning when you’re adjusting your grip, you clearly hear the shuffle sounds on the audio.

I noticed that this camcorder is currently on sale. You can walk away with this camcorder for a great price of $145.85. Not sure how long this sale will last, that is a great price! If you buy this, remember to buy Memory Sicks!

Well, to continue my interest in great POV (Point of View) camcorders, I came across the Twenty20 VholdR Countour HD Camera (thanks @cyclingslopes). This camera, and it seems there are so many great POV cameras on the market now, is fantastic! If you decide to get this camera, I would also look at some of the accessories (windshield mount is something that caught my eye) that come with it!

I found a great video review that shows the features and the capabilities of this POV camcorder. You’ll need to scroll down to see it. If anyone has the camera, please comment and let me know what you think!

So I’ve been seeing the commercials of the new Apple iPod Nano and the ability for it to shoot video. It seems with this super surge of “shoot and share” mini-camcorders, it’s only a matter of time before phones and mp3 players are stepping up to the plate.  Based on the commercials it seems that the Nano is really looking like a true contender.

Today on Twitter, I thought I’d post this question and @FlipInFocus provided me with a great side by side comparison between the Apple iPod Nano and the Flip Video Mino (SD). This comparison is using the SD version since the Nano does not shoot in HD. I was quite suprised by the results:
