Cheap 3D - Sony Bloggie, Fuji W3, LG Optimus, HTC Evo 3D... or?

I'm looking at having some 3D fun with something pocket-sized and low cost (hence no Sony TD20).

It will just be used for photos and videos of my young kids.

Does anyone have any experience or suggestions?

The Sony and Fuji don't seem to be that great, hence my inclusion of two smartphones. Maybe they are similar in performance but add wireless connectivity?

From what I've read, the Fuji's lenses are quite far apart for close to mid (3' - 10') image capture; perhaps better for 10' - 20'.

Any thoughts appreciated!

Perfect!

I'd love to know which:

1/ Takes the best stills and which takes the best video in daylight?
2/ Is best for stills and video in low light?
3/ Has the better 3D effect for close/medium subjects?
4/ Has the best 3D display? (my kids will want to see instant results!)
5/ You prefer to use?
6/ Considering all of the above, and the LG's wireless connectivity, would you recommend to a first-time 3D shooter?

Thanks!

I can't answer 1 & 2 just yet as I haven't given it much thought, but lg has better display and is better for closeups because the lenses are closer together. I would recommend the lg as it's also a good phone and for its wireless connectivity.

OK. I splurged a bit more and got the Optimus 3D MAX.

WOW!

I've just taken some stills and video of the kids, and I'm going to use this thing a LOT.

Getting 3D images of the children will they are small is going to be priceless.

As an aside, it's a very well-made phone, very responsive and very slim. I can see times when I'll take it out with me instead of my Galaxy Note.
