Panasonic has been teasing with some bits of info about a 3D consumer camcorder for a while now. That 3D camcorder has finally gone official with the coming out party for the HDC-SDT750 camcorder.
The camera is billed as the world's first 3D consumer camcorder and can also record in full 1080p HD 2D format. The camera uses AVCHD file format when the 3D lens is removed. The 3D lens records left and right eye images at the same time though two lenses. The images recorded with the camera use the side-by-side 3D method.
The camera also has a time lapse feature and records 5.1 surround sound. Panasonic uses a 3MOS system for quality recording. The camera ships with software for editing the 3D footage and for converting that footage into 2D. The LCD is a 3-inch unit that shows 2D footage from the left lens. The camera will ship in October for $1399.95.
