3D Week: Sony Hatches 3D Camcording for Easter

Sony NZ will release its first 3D Handycam camcorder in April for $2799.

It’s part of Sony’s strategy to offer a complete 3D solution in the home to maximise the capability of Sony’s 2011 TV range.

The “Double Full HD” HDR-TD10 camcorder has an integrated dual lens system that incorporates double Sony G lenses, double “Exmor R” CMOS Sensor and double BIONZ image processors.

This means 3D content can be recorded in 1920 x 1080i Full HD resolution and viewed with 3D active glasses on any compatible 3D TV or in Full HD on any non-3D TV.

All 3D footage can also be played back without glasses on the camcorder’s 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD 3D touch screen.

According to Sony, the TD10 also boasts 10x Optical Zoom and Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation with Active Mode, for “powerful shake correction” at wide angles.

The 64GB of flash memory affords 25 hours of Full HD video footage (HD LP mode) or up to five hours of Full HD 3D video.

Sony NZ announced the release on Friday, along with a 3D Bloggie camera, the MHS-FS3K, which will sell for $649 from May.

It can capture Full HD 3D (1920 x 1080) MPEG4 video and has five megapixels for still photo shooting, 8GB of flash memory and simple web sharing capabilities.

The pocket-size camera has a double lens and double image sensors, a stereo microphone and a built-in LED (footage can be played back in 3D on the camera’s 2.4-inch LCD screen or using 3D active glasses on any compatible 3D TV).

Watch also for a new range of Cyber-shot cameras capable of capturing quality 3D images with a single lens; Sony’s already released Vegas Pro 10 software for editing motion 3D video.
