Sony unveils first 'Double Full HD' 3D Handycam camcorder

Sony is strengthening its 3D consumer product portfolio with the unveiling at CES of a 3D camcorder. The HDR-TD10E is the world's first ‘Double Full HD’ 3D consumer Handycam camcorder – the camcorder employs an integrated dual-lens system, which includes two of each key component (double Sony G Lenses, double Exmor R CMOS sensors, and double BIONZ image processors.).

The dual recording system allows 3D content to be recorded in 1920x1080 resolution Full HD. The content can be played back on 3D-capable HDTVs with 3D glasses or in Full HD 2D on non-3D displays.

In addition, the 3D footage can be viewed in 3D without glasses on the camcorder's 3.5-inch 3D touch screen LCD.

The HDR-TD10 will be available in April for about $1,500.

In the MP4 video category, Sony unveiled Bloggie 3D – the world's first HD 3D pocket camera (MHS-FS3) – an innovative model with two lenses, two image sensors, and stereo microphone that captures 3D or 2D video and photos. The 3D images can be viewed without glasses on the built-in LCD.
