9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

Most camcorders that are a comparable age to the MHS-FS3 do not have an image stabilizer. The MHS-FS3 is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabilizer.

It is worth also looking at other video cameras which also have an image stabilizer including the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an HDMI

Like most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for a similar time to the MHS-FS3, the MHS-FS3 does not have an HDMI.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an HDMI and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price] is also worth considering.

Not Full HD

The MHS-FS3 is not Full HD, although keep in mind that most of the other camcorders that were released more than two years ago are also not Full HD.

If you would prefer a video camera that is Full HD then you might want to look at the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

The MHS-FS3 does not have an interchangeable lens, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other camcorders that were launched more than two years ago also do not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The MHS-FS3 does not have a built-in display. Most of the other video cameras that were launched more than two years ago do have a built-in display.

There are a number of other video cameras which also have a built-in display which you might want to look at including the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price] which also has a higher rating.

Not Waterproof

The MHS-FS3 is not waterproof. Most of the other similar spec video cameras that came out around the same time as the MHS-FS3 are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

The MHS-FS3 is not 3D, although this is within the context that most of the other camcorders that were released around the same time as the MHS-FS3 are also not 3D.

If you want a video camera that is 3D then you might also want to look at the Sony HDR-TD20VE[plb_1505099_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The MHS-FS3 does not have a night mode, although this is within the context that most of the other camcorders of a comparable age and type to the MHS-FS3 also do not have a night mode.

It is worth also looking at alternative camcorders which also have a night mode including the Sony HDR-CX730E[plb_363171_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

Most camcorders that were launched around the same time as the MHS-FS3 do not have a built-in projector. The MHS-FS3 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in projector.

We think you might also be interested in other camcorders which also have a built-in projector including the HDR-PJ420E[pl_1583936_price], or the HDR-PJ820[pl_2109593_price] both from Sony.

Marshal Rosenthal 4.0 5.0 Shooting in 3D isn't a ?gimmick,? but it's still out of the ordinary toda...

The Sony Bloggie is the world's first pocket 1080p HD 3D video camcorder
It features two lenses for shooting in 3D, and there's a 2.4-inch screen that's also capable of playing back your video clips in 3D
There's 8GB of storage on board, with enough space for over an hour of filming at the highest quality setting
Once you're done, you'll be able to hook up the Sony Bloggie to your computer usi
Produces good quality 3D
On the downside, the 3D screen on the Sony Bloggie isn't that good
At 2.4 inches, it's not the largest, and it's also too dark
That said
3D playback is realistic
No option for expanded memory
