Double Full HD 3D Camcorder – Sony TD10 at CES 2011
We got to check out Sony’s new Double Full HD 3D Camcorder, the Sony TD10 at CES 2011. It looks like a great camcorder that won’t replace your DSLR for video but it will allow you to shoot things in full HD 3D.
The main thing that makes this camcorder different than the rest is how it uses two independent lenses, sensors and processors to handle the video. Other camcorders use the same sensor and just do a split screen thing to get a 3D image that really cuts the resolution by half. This camera ges a ful HD signal to both eyes!
Here is a little bit of specs from the Sony website:
The HDR-TD10 Handycam® camcorder utilizes two Full HD sensors for capturing true 1920×1080 3D video delivering an immersive 3D experience, as well as Full HD 2D video. View 3D and 2D videos directly on its generous 3.5″ Xtra Fine LCD™ display–no special glasses required. Watch all 3D video in 2D as well. Also equipped with 64GB embedded Flash memory, you can record and store up to 25 hours of 2D high-definition video footage (HD LP mode), or up to 5 hours of high-definition 3D video.
I’m really looking forward to this technology getting into the consumers hands… because that menas that it will soon pushed into the professional level cameras.
