Still playing with the device but considering the pricepoint, I think I will be fairly satisfied with the device.

Pros : The 3D quality is better then I thought it would be, it really does a decent job and with the mini HDMI connection, it's pretty quick to watch it on your 3DTV. There isn't nearly the level of ghosting that I would have expected given it was a 250$ 3D recording device. I went in thinking I wouldn't get that level of 3D. Non 3D movies shot in HD end up looking very nice as well. I've had a flip and two kodaks of this class type in the past and this was the best quality out of all of them. Also, one thing most of the compact devices lack is any sort of light/flash, it's nice to have a little help in low light situations with the built in led light. The menus are easy enuf to navigate thru and I love have seperate dedicated buttons for pics or video. I like the integrated usb slide out dongle. The unit itself seems to have a good quality build to it.

Cons : No optical zoom in any mode, no zooming digital or optical in 3D mode. The optical I get, I don't think anything in this class does but the 3d no digital zoom is dissapointing. Also, it is supposed to have some image stabilization but I found this part of it to be poor too, videos in the upper hd modes can get very jittery. In playback mode, there is no slideshow or auto play feature I can find which is a shame. If you have a bunch of mini clips recorded and are trying to watch on the tv, you will have to get up and manually play each clip. Also, I wish, especially with this device having two lenses, there was some lens cover implementation. The led light is not of the quality of lets say the iphone 4 one, it's nice to have but it does not make this a flash camera or flash video device.

Sony's first 3D camera makes a good impression but leaves room for improvement. The 3D Bloggie takes good quality 1080P 2D and 3D video that may be uploaded to Youtube & Facebook with just a few clicks. This camera supports Youtube 3D. Video recorded in 3D mode will automatically be displayed in 3D on Youtube and viewed with colored glasses, 3D devices, or just plain 2D.

The stereo 3D effect is good although not as strong or versatile as the Fuji W3 camera. Sony can shoot 3D at closer distances than the Fuji, and seems suitable for close ups and 3D Video Blogging.

The LCD looks poor in 3D mode, small and pixelated, does not show much 3D effect or pop out.

The 3D Bloggie is a good choice for anyone that has access to a 3DTV or 3D Monitor. It can play back 3D video directly to a 3DTV using it's built in mini HDMI port, Video looks good on a 3DTV. Photos and Video may also be viewed in 3D on the PC using a program called Stereoscopic player.

Pros: Highest resolution 3D video in its class (960x1080 lines per eye), small, light & easy to use, side by side 3D format may be edited and shared easily, built in USB port, 60FPS 720HD(2D) 1080P(2D), low cost, built in memory.

Cons: Small and poor quality Viewfinder (in 3D mode), short battery life in 3D mode (less than an hour), no flash, replaceable battery, lens cover, optical zoom, 3D Adjustment.

VS the Fuji W3: Fuji's 3D LCD is fantastic. Fuji takes higher quality pictures and has more features.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
With a few changes, the Bloggie 3D could have been a great video camera. But its high price tag and lack of accessories earn it only 3 stars.

On the positive side, the camera does seem to take pretty decent 3D videos. As advertised, its twin camera lenses enable you to take both still shots and full-motion video in 3D. (It's also possible to take traditional 2D photos and videos). The camera can even snap still shots while simultaneously recording a video.

Videos can be played back on a 3D TV, through the YouTube 3D Channel, or right on your Bloggie screen without glasses (though this requires you to look at the little screen from a certain distance and angle, and tires the eyes quickly).

As the name "Bloggie" suggests, this camera is all about social networking. It's a breeze to make your video, plug it into your computer, trim the length, and then with the click of a button you can upload it to sites like Facebook or YouTube.

Nevertheless, this camera has some real shortcomings. It has no optical zoom and takes very poor still shots. Even in good outdoor lighting, I was disappointed. It does not have a flash, though it does come with a mediocre LED light. You will definitely want to buy a separate digital camera if you plan to take a lot of still shots.

The design of the back of the camera also makes it difficult to hold with one hand. When taking a video, my thumb keeps wanting to bump into the directional key, which causes the lens to zoom in or out. Another big drawback is that the Bloggie does not have RCA jacks to plug into a traditional TV, nor does it have an AC Adapter (you have to charge it using the USB cable, which means you'd better have your computer with you if you plan to do very much recording).

If you want to dabble into 3D movie-making, then the Bloggie might be right for you. It's not a bad camera, but at a retail price of $250, I expected more from Sony than this.
