Sony's bloggie Sport gives the pocket Internet camcorder format rugged good looks.

Great image quality for a pocket Internet camcorder, Sturdy build and waterproofing, One-button ease of use

Sony Bloggie 3D MHS-FS3

 

Easy to use ; Can view 3D footage on the screen without glasses ; Decent HD quality

No expandable storage option ; Limited editing options with provided software ; Ineffective image stabilisation for 3D ; Intraocular distance between lenses is too short

The Bloggie 3D provides a cheap and easy way to make 3D videos — though the effect might leave you feeling more seasick than satisfied.

Sony Bloggie MHS-FS3Camcorder Review

 

The Sony MHS-FS3 is the first Bloggie with two lenses, offering both full HD capture and stereoscopic 3D video. The pocket-sized shooter offers a 2.4'' non-touchscreen LCD for control with a retractable USB arm and built-in software, making it an...

Sony Bloggie 3D Review

 

The Bloggie 3D proves that 3D can work on a pocket camcorder, but unless you have all the necessary equipment to view the 3D, it's tough to justify the $250 price tag, especially considering the Bloggie Touch is $100 cheaper and a better pure pocket...

Sony MHS-FS3

 

If you want a pocket sized 3D camcorder, this is your only option to date

3D footage on a budget; Easy handling

Poor low light results; Subpar color performance

The Sony 3D Bloggie, otherwise known as the MHS-FS3, shows just how dedicated Sony is to making 3D video a part of your everyday life. The camera features two lenses to record 3D, creating a visual disparity that will display on most 3D-capable...

If grab-it-and-go 3D appeals to you then look no further than Sony's 3D Bloggie HD.

Sony MHS-FS3 Bloggie 3D

 

Light and easy to use ; Can hook up to my 3D Blu-Ray player with the USB cable ; Very simple and easy to use ; Stunning 3D ; Crystal clear sound

Uses a mini HDMI instead of a full HDMI ; It didn't look like the 3D was in HD

Sony MHS-FS3 Bloggie 3D

 

Size and weight of a mobile phone. Takes good quality full HD videos and 720p 3D videos. Very easy to use and show videos and still photos on the TV ; The included software can do various processing and organise the files ; Sony Vegas can be bought at...

There is no optical zoom (but this could make it bigger and heavier. The low-light performance is poor

Sony MHS-FS3 Bloggie 3D

 

For the price this is a very good little 3d camcorder

Not too happy with the software. It would be nice to be able to watch all of my clips in one movie rather than having to keep selecting them one at a time (that's the only reason I didn't give this an overall 10/10)
