A few days ago, I posted the differences between the Flip Video Mino and Ultra HD camcorders and a visitor to the site was very interested in these cameras so he could do some video blogging of musical instruments and gear. He mentioned this to a few of his friends, and couple recommended the Sony Webbie (and I’m presuming it was the MHS-PM1 since it’s somewhat similar to the Flip Video), so I thought I would post about this particular camcorder.

Record HD MP4 video and 5MP images then easily upload them directly to the Web with the SonyWebbie HD camera. The ultra-compact Webbie HD camera also features a unique lens system that can swivel up to 270 degrees, allowing for easy self-shooting if you like to post videos of yourself on your blog.

I found this interesting video where a guy compares the Sony Webbie HD MHS-PM1 against his Panasonic SDR-S7 camera and by doing so exposes some of it’s features and limitations, that I could see being applied against the Flip Video series.

Number one he mentions the rotating lense on the Sony Webbie, which makes it very nice to film yourself while being able to view the screen. You cannot do this with the Flip Video models (unfortunately). He also exposes the ‘noise’ related to grip on the Webbie, which I can see becoming a issue depending on the application.

Here is the video:
