Sony’s Bloggie™ brand welcomes three models that each brings distinct value to the category.  The world’s first HD 3D pocket camera, the Bloggie™ 3D (MHS-FS3) is an innovative model with two lenses, two image sensors, stereo microphone and built-in LED light to capture incredible 3D or 2D video and photos.  This content can be played back in 3D without glasses on the camera’s 2.4-inch LCD screen or utilizing 3D glasses on any 3D capable HDTV like Sony’s new BRAVIA KDL-HX820 also announced today.

The portable HD camera lineup also offers a dual-screen option dubbed Bloggie™ Duo (MHS-FS2).  The slim camera features two vibrant LCD screens – 2.7-inch on the back and 2.0-inch on the front under the lens – for fun new ways to capture yourself and others in full HD video or 5.1 megapixel photos.  The Bloggie™ Duo has a built-in LED light and comes in four fashionable colors — violet, green, pink, and white.

An entry model completes the trio of Bloggie™ introductions, offering on-the-go video lovers a smart, pocket device at a low price point.  The MHS-FS1 sports an ultra compact, lightweight design, with a large 2.7-inch LCD screen, and comes in black and white.
