Sony has announced three new models in its Bloggie HD pocket-camcorder range. Backing up from the launch of Bloggie Touch last year, the company has boosted its compact platform for 2011 with the addition of 3D technology and dual screen capabilities.

Each new model features Sony's Exmor CMOS sensor, SteadyShot image stabilization, Face Detection, a built-in USB arm and shoot high definition (1920x1080) MP4 video and 5-megapixel still photos, while each brings distinct features to the compact camera category.

Sony Bloggie 3D

The Bloggie 3D camera (MHS-FS3) sports two lenses, two image sensors, stereo microphone and built-in LED light capable of capturing 3D or 2D video and stills. This content can be played back in 3D without glasses on the camera’s 2.4-inch LCD screen, or on any 3D capable HDTV (which will require glasses).

Next in the lineup is the dual-screen model the Bloggie Duo (MHS-FS2). This camera also has a built-in LED light, but what sets it apart is its two LCD screens – 2.7-inch on the back and 2.0-inch on the front under the lens – which allows users to put themselves in frame when shooting video or stills.

The entry model Bloggie (MHS-FS1) rounds out the range with it's 2.7-inch wide LCD screen.

All of the Sony Bloggie HD cameras offer integrated support for Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and Picasa Web Albums.

Additional common features include Dual Record (which lets you take stills while shooting video), HDMI output, Auto Focus and Auto Macro, plus an adjustable user interface for vertical or horizontal shooting and viewing.

There's also a 360 Video add-on kit that option lets users capture 360-degree footage and play it back (a quarter at a time) on the camera’s LCD.

Bloggie Duo

The Sony Bloggie (MHS-FS1) and Bloggie Duo (MHS-FS2) cameras, both with 4GB of internal memory, will be available in March for around US$150 and $170, respectively.

The Bloggie 3D camera (MHS-FS3) with 8GB of internal memory will be available in April for about US$250.

I suppose these new Bloggie cameras have the ever popular 'built-in rechargeable, factory replaceable only' batteries? When will they learn?

The lenses look too close together to give a good 3D image. I thought they needed to be 2.5" apart.
