Sony Bloggie 3D MHS-FS3 Review


Sony now lets you take 3D videos and stills on the cheap with a compact, easy-to-use MPEG-4 camera. Is it worth spending extra to enter the next dimension?

Compact, lightweight, simple to use ; 3D/2D stills and video ; 2.4-inch auto-stereoscopic LCD

Poor 3D quality ; Screen very dark in 3D ; For online sharing only

We feel the Sony Bloggie 3D MHS-FS3 compromises too much on quality and the 3D portion of the Bloggie 3D isn’t ready for prime time.

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...

Excellent product but not on HDTV


This is the best low cost 3D HD camcoder with amazing 3D effects. The issue is that when I connect it directly to my 3D Vizion 240HZ TV, the camera switches itself to 2D and cannot turn it to 3D. So the only way to watch 3D is directly on the camera or...

Amazing 3D effect

Will not work directly on VIZIO 3D TV

I like it


I like it very much the camera, but I buy it to record a event of my church I i have been disappointed with the limitations of the 29 mins. limit of continue recording time, and also with the battery life. I know that is a camera designed for short...

Good image quality, good variety of quality to choose

29 mins. time limit for video, the battery doesn't last the 4 hours of recording

I love it !!!


I bought 3D camera on sale not really expecting much (I have 4 other Full HD Video Cameras). I have been nothing but impressed by the quality of the video in spite of the small aperture (it out performs all my other cameras). There is barely any jump...

Takes awesome 1080; shoots great pictures; built in light; smaller than an iphone; easy to charge, easy to down load

Just a bit slow to turn on; have to push the button way down to take pictures
