Anyone that knows me appreciates that I am an all round geek, and have had an interest in 3d cameras, devices and paraphernalia for more time than I care to mention. So I was especially excited to get my hands on these devices, albeit only for a short period of time. It will come as no surprise that my interest in these devices was in their potential as a 24/7 ‘back pocket’ device for taking 3D video and photographs.
So I don’t intend doing a particularly scientific test, nor reproducing technical specs (which are available elsewhere) but I thought it might be useful to compare some real world video and images taken at the same location, at the same time, using each devices’ default HD settings (with apologies for the rather overcast weather).
Sony Bloggie 3D
NB The Bloggie is the only camera to support full 1080p 3D video.
HTC EVO 3D
LG Optimus 3D
Having has some chance to play with all 3 devices here is my general conclusion.
If all you want is a tidy and petite 3D Video and stills camera to carry about for everyday use then the Bloggie, with it’s superior 1080p resolution and dedicated/simplistic functionality wins out.
If you need a combined 3d camera and phone my personal preference is the LG Optimus 3D though in all honesty there is little to choose between the two devices (In fact I would be tempted to go for whichever gave me the best price on the day)
