Panasonic Introduces World's First(1) 3D Consumer Camcorder Panasonic's New Innovative Camcorder Unleashes 3D Recording to Amateur Home Videographers and Enables Superb-Quality 2D HD Videos OSAKA, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Panasonic Corporation (NYSE:PC), an industry leader in Full HD 3D and HD TV technology, unveiled today the world's first 3D camcorder for consumers1. The HDC-SDT750 camcorder allows anyone to create powerful, true-to-life 3D images by simply attaching a 3D conversion lens that comes with the camcorder. Even without the 3D conversion lens, this innovative camcorder offers many ways to take home video recording to a new level with a wide range of sophisticated features. The camcorder will go on sale in Japan2 on August 20, to be followed in other countries in autumn of this year. At the vanguard of 3D technology, this year Panasonic launched its Full HD 3D VIERA plasma TVs and 3D Blu-ray DiscTM players for homes as well as the world's first professional 3D camcorder. The development of a consumer camcorder capable of 3D recording is a natural next step for the company. Incorporating Panasonic's broadcast technology, the advanced 3MOS System SDT750 camcorder lets users easily create their own 3D movies, something that previously only professional image producers had been able to do. Combined with a VIERA 3DTV3 and Blu-ray DiscTM player/recorder4, the SDT750 camcorder makes it possible to save precious memories of friends and family in vivid, lifelike 3D images, thereby further expanding the world of 3D enjoyment at home. Even without the 3D conversion lens attached, there are many ways to enjoy the SDT750 camcorder. The 3MOS system with improved noise reduction (NR) technologies records dimly lit images in greater beauty than ever before. Other sophisticated functions include 1080/60p for NTSC or 1080/50p for PAL recording (Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080, 60 or 50 progressive recording)5 for ultra-smooth images, iA (Intelligent Auto) mode5 in the new HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization/Optical Image Stabilizer)5, and a wealth of manual functions controlled by a manual ring6 for easy, creative shooting. The high-sensitivity 3MOS System provides an effective motion image pixel count of 7,590,000 pixels (2,530,000 pixels x 3). And even with this high pixel count, newly developed technology increases sensitivity, and further-evolved NR technology achieves bright images with minimal noise when shooting under low light conditions. This maximizes the 3MOS features of excellent color reproduction, high resolution and rich gradation, and lets the user capture vividly colored images in both bright and darkly lit places. Recording in 1,080/60p for NTSC or 1,080/50p for PAL5, the SDT750 camcorder produces richly expressive images, with none of the detail loss and flickering of the conventional 1,080i (interlace) recording. In addition, the iA function, which was highly popular on previous models, makes it easy for anyone to take beautiful videos. The SDT750 camcorder also newly incorporates the HYBRID O.I.S. system5 to bring clear, beautiful HD image quality to telephoto shots as well.
First big screens, then High Definition...now 3D. I think the P industry is going to be "excited". They will "erect" their films to new heights, and "enter" places no one has dared to until 3D!

It looks like a regular old hand held camcorder.... with a Silencer attached.... Look out! Pow! Pow!
I agree Chainzsaw, especially since anybody other then James Cameron can now shoot 3D movies on the cheap, this'll be real nice for the DSLR crowd.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
I wonder how much that bad boy costs :-P
Sheesh, I wonder if its weight is evenly distributed. Seems like it would be odd to film. We started designing and getting smaller equipment, now the additions to this equipment seems to be massive.
Oh yes acarzt! They will be able to "shoot" silently. Their "equipment" should be able to "handle" anything that scampers their way. Pow pow indeed! Lolz.
Sorry for my sillyness...
I didn't even think about that mental...
If it's front heavy... that could be dangerous to hold. That would make it MUCH easier to drop.
Bring it on...Bring it Cheap!
I hope 3D will be standard on everything without any kind of upcharge!
just like the SAP button on all sets:P
