Showed at CES 2011, Sony HDR-TD10 3D camcorder will be available in Japanese market in May 13 2011 for 150,000 yen. According to the rumor, it will be followed at US market for $1,499.
Featuring BIONZ image processor, Dolby sound system, double 10x digital zoom (3D mode) G lenses and two 1/4″(4.5mm) Back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS Sensors, Sony HDR-TD10 camcorder enables to record well in full HD 1920×1080 resolution for both 3D and 2D mode with great stereo sound. Sony claimed that this is the first world double full HD camcorder.
For storage, Sony added a 64GB built-in flash memory. Thus, the gadget can record for 5 hours long 3D contents. If you feel it’s not enough (nothing enough in this world) you can expand through the memory card slot with Memory Stick PRO Duo or SD/SDHC/SDXC.
The most interesting me is the 3.5″ Xtra Fine LCD 3D display (1229K) with TruBlack technology. The display offers a free-glasses viewing for your 3D contents. So, you can directly see your 3D recording on the LCD with life-like images quality. Of course, when you are playing the recording on other device such Full HD 3D TV it depends on the TV whether it need or not the 3D glasses.
In addition, your 3D recording can serve and play well on your non-3D screen such TV or PC or others with 2D playback feature. Hence, there is no reason for not recording all in 3D mode.
Compacted in 74mm x 86.5mm x148.5mm dimension and 645g weight, Sony HDR-TD10 3D camcorder will be available in silver color. Is it in May for US market? Did I mention NP-FV70 battery? [Dandy Gadget Source]
