Summary: Overall, the Sony Bloggie 3D Mobile HD camera is a capable choice if you're only interested in having a bit of fun. Serious movie fans would be better served by more expensive choices, but it's a good solution if you want something affordable and small to put in your pocket.
Conclusion: We’re still not fans of Flip-type cameras. We feel you’re compromising too much on the picture and video side of the equation, especially compared to the cheaper, competing Sony WX9 digicam, for example. And the 3D portion of the Bloggie 3D isn’t ready for prime time. Yeah, we know all about the pluses of quick image uploads, but if that’s your game, just use your cellphone. If you care even a teensy bit about quality, there are tons of other options.
Pros: Compact, lightweight, simple to use, 3D/2D stills and video, 2.4-inch auto-stereoscopic LCD
Cons: Poor 3D quality, Screen very dark in 3D, For online sharing only
Summary: 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 camcorder.
Your kids are in 3D, your world is in 3D, shouldn't your camera record 3D, too? We test the 3D Bloggie to see if this dual-lens camcorder is a worthy addition to your 3D home theater setup.

Excerpt: 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 entirely contained device for shooting, editing, and uploading 1080/30p 3D and 2D video.
Excerpt: 3D dominance hasn't exactly happened in the home in 2011, but nobody can faulty Sony's persistence in putting 3D technology in the majority of its products – including it's compact camcorder Flip-rivalling Bloggie range.
Excerpt: The Sony Bloggie Sport isn’t the only ruggedised pocket camcorder around: Panasonic offers the pricier, pistol-gripped HX-WA20 and HX-WA2 models, and there's also the cheaper Kodak PlaySport Zx5 and Samsung recently launched the eminently affordable W200. The Sport is chunkier than previous Bloggies such as the Sony Bloggie 3D and the Sony Bloggie Touch , due to its armoured, sealed shell.
Pros: Decent video performance, Rugged, waterproof shell, Easy to use
Cons: Average stills quality, Fussy touchscreen, Pricier than some rivals
Excerpt: "The Flip is dead, long live the Sony Bloggie". Are the words probably uttered by the Sony pocket camcorder team when they heard the news earlier this year that Cisco had ditched the popular Flip camcorder.
Pros: Small, no glasses required, USB dongle in design, easy to use
Cons: Small screen, No external mic option, no manual white balance or focus options
