Is one an out and the other not, and why?

Batter hits a foul fly to F3. The ball gets juggled by F3 (never touched the ground) and settles between his chest and forearm. After he grabs it with his hand, is it an out?

Just to add to that first one, a foul tip can be caught by either of the catcher's hands, not just their glove hand.
It's a rare occurrence, but it happened in the MLB the other day.
Can't seem to find the clip though.
Which hand catches it doesn't matter.
What matters is that the batted ball has to go sharp and direct to the hand or glove first and then be legally caught.
If it hits the hand or glove first it can then bounce off the catcher into the air before being caught and still be foul tip.
