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...

Sony bloggie Sport

 

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

Relatively pricey, No optical zoom, Almost no manual settings

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.

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
