- The color reproduction in bright ambient light proved to be very good – especially in comparison with low-cost video cameras such as the CM1.
- The colors seemed alive and true to life, according to the editors.
- Interestingly, the noise level of the MHS-CM1 was also relatively low.
- Blurred Movements – Good ResolutionWhen investigating motion playback, the results of the Sony MHS-CM1 were not quite as good.
- The movements ‘wiped’ when taken in high contrast areas of the image (see video below).
- The editors once again praised the high resolution: The CM1 was able to display very good 800 line pairs per image height vertically and 700 horizontally.
- Overall, the Sony MHS-CM1 not come with the quality of the also very inexpensive Flip Mino HD with, that is the conclusion of the.
- The flip is better suited for low-light shooting than Sony.

- It has a CMOS sensor that measures 1 / 2.5 inches in size. is and dissolves videos in 1440 x 1080 pixels.

- During a video shoot, you can easily capture still images without interrupting the movie.
- So it is possible to transfer the videos to the Internet or to the computer without using any other software.
- Zoom and easy-to-see monitorThe lens of the Sony MHS-CM1 has a 5x optical zoom and a 20x digital zoom.
- The fact that Sony quite limited the otherwise often escalating zoom factor, is an advantage: Thus, the lenses produce fewer aberrations.
- The Webbie HD camera was equipped with a 2.5-inch display, which should provide a particularly large viewing angle of 270 degrees.
- The recordings are recorded on a Memory Stick Pro Duo, which must be purchased separately.
- Good value for moneyThe Sony MHS-CM1 is particularly interesting for those videographers who need their recordings for the Internet or on the PC.
- For ambitious video projects, however, it is not suitable due to a lack of manual settings.
- In addition, it has no connection for an external microphone and only an electronic image stabilizer.
