Nice. Thank you for taking the time to put that together. Took me a few minutes to find my old "red/blue" cardboard glasses but it was well worth it.

In my opinion the "3D" effect is fun whether using the two color glasses or either active or passive glasses with an HDTV.

The color isn't as true or vivid with the two color glasses however. Passive and active glasses also detract from the color a bit. Moreover, we don't see "3D" depth naturally simply because our eyes are set apart, we also "see" it by the near/far focusing of our eyes which doesn't come through the same way with 3D photos/movies. The movement or our head changing our perspective also contributes to a natural depth effect and this too is not there in 3D photos/movies. We somewhat have to learn how to accept this false 3D.

I'm not saying this to detract from the concept, I'm just making an observation. My new Sony HX9V and my 3 days old 3D capable HDTV attest to my willingness to enjoy the fun of 3D.

Here is where you can download the 3D beach video (108030p, sbs 3D), to play on your new 3D HDTV and get the better colors (they are great viewed this way).

Thanks Mark.

I'll give it a go. Appreciate your effort.

All righty!

Now that looks most excellent. The color comes through just fine with my passive 3D HDTV. Video is great at 1080p. You got some good clips that show off the 3D effect very well while also giving a good accounting of the color and video quality.

While I only do occassional video, I can sure see how the fun and "wow" factor of the Sony Bloggie 3D is easily worth the cost.

John, thanks.

I also just got a passive 3D HDTV. How did you play the video in 3D on your TV?

3D tvs play 3D video over HDMI (only some over USB). Connect a SAT receiver or BluRay player
or multimedia player per HDMI und use their USB (stick, SDHC, harddisk drive ..).
Half-side-by-side understands each 3D tv.

My Notebook has HDMI out and looks great on the HDTV.

Using Windows 7 and the current WMP, the file you uploaded (and I downloaded) played flawlessly.

On the notebook, what I saw was the "side by side" dual images playing, however. I do not believe I can view this type of file in 3D on the notebook, but as long as it will send the proper signal to the HDTV I really don't care.

There may be other ways I could do it, but this works for me.

Hope that helps.

Thanks guys. The issue for 3D playback on a 3D HDTV is finding a device that both plays 3D and recognizes the .mp4 file from the Bloggie. The latest 3D Panasonic bluray players do not, either from the sd card or usb slot. The Sony bluray players do both, from the usb slot (I guess that is not a surprise).

Here is the downloadable 3D carousel ride. Good 3D, color, motion and sound!

Thanks, I'll check that one out, too.

My 3D HDTV will not recognize the file on a USB stick either. Again, not so important to me since I can play them through the Notebook.

In manual of my 47" 3D LG tv I can read - no 3D from USB, only HDMI.

That's wrong - connecting Bloogie 3D or SDHC/cardreader or USB stick with tranferred movies show side-by-side-movies correct in 3D
