Panasonic announces first 3D camcorderBy Johan Keyter 28 July 2010 | Categories: news
Panasonic today announced the launch of the world’s first consumer 3D camcorder, the HDC-SDT750.
The camera includes a 3D conversion lens that enables the camcorder to shoot powerful and true-to-life 3D video content.
When users want to shoot 3D video with the SDT750 they simply attach the specially-designed 3D conversion lens. This lens records right and left eye images simultaneously through its dual lenses, resulting in video that can be viewed in 3D.
Users can then view their 3D videos on compatible 3D television sets, completing the true 3-dimensional home entertainment system.
In addition to its 3D capabilities the SDT750 can also record full 1080p High Definition video when the 3D conversion lens is removed. A Leica Dicomar lens with 12x optical zoom does service on the device, ensuring high quality recordings.
With Panasonic’s Viera HD 3D televisions already in the market the company decided to extend their 3D offering. “Panasonic has taken it one step further and developed the world’s first consumer 3D camcorder, creating a 3D ecosystem available for consumers in the home,” said Chris Rice, senior product manager of Imaging at Panasonic.
A number of manufacturers has recently released 3D televisions to the South African market including LG and Samsung.
