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 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...

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 MHS-FS3 3D Bloggie HD Camera Reviewed

 

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

Sony Bloggie 3D MHS-FS3

 

The Sony Bloggie range arrived relatively late to the 'simple video recorder' party, well after the advent of the Flip camcorder.

Easy 3D recording ; Excellent build quality ; Good video quality overall ; Nice choice of video options

Not cheap ; Poor 2D conversion ; Video not quite as good as 2D cameras of equivalent price

Whether you want cutting-edge 3D footage for your new TV, or just some good 2D video recording, the Bloggie 3D is a good choice.

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.

Very good if you have a 3D to watch it on

 

Nice oiket fit and will take around 400 pictures on the flash memory depending on settings.

Easy to use. Built in software

For thew money haven't found a real show stopper

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 didn't expect this from Sony. Hopefully the return will be seamless :(

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
