Panasonic SDT750 3D camcorder official
New cammie is first 3D shooter for average punters rather than Hollywood-based pros.
Panasonic has finally come over all official with its new 3D camcorder, the HDC-SDT750. Utilising a 3D conversion lens which sits pretty up front, it also crams in some pretty tasty specs for regular 2D shooting too.
The three dimensional stuff is the exciting part, though. The dual lens system records right eye and left eye images at the same time in 960 x 1080. Ok, that’s not quite Full HD, but these are early days and the results are bound to look special on your 3DTV.
The camcorder itself packs in a 3MOS system, along with a Leica Dicomar lens and 12x optical zoom for getting up close and personal in 3D. There’s a 3-inch touchscreen LCD slapped on the side, although this will only let you peep footage in 2D.
The SDT750 isn’t due to land until October. With US pricing set at $1,399 (£897), it’s yet to be slapped with a UK price tag. Expect it to hammer your bank balance for at least a grand though.
