Sony Bloggie MHS-FS3 Hands-on - Pocket-lint

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...

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).
