At CES 2010 in Las Vegas Panasonic have just unveiled its new HD 3D Camcorder which is a worlds first. The innovative 3d camcorder automatically recalibrates the convergence point which needs to be done manually on conventional 3D equipment using a separate PC or external video processor.
The convergence point is the point at which the left and right cameras’ optical axes converge to produce 3D images. To take natural-looking 3D video, the convergence point needs to be adjusted to match that of a human’s eyes, whose convergence point varies according to the closeness of the objects being viewed. Panasonic’s new Full HD 3D camcorder adopts newly-developed twin-lens system that realizes convergence point control with its integrated design.
Equipped with a solid state memory system for recording full HD from both lenses to SDHC/SD memory cards. Allowing instant random access to recorded movies via PC or Mac. The main unit weights just under 3kg and uses approx 19w of power.
The 3D Camcorder from Panasonic will be available in the early fall and priced around $21,000
