Sony Reveals New 3D High-Definition Camcorders

Like 3D movies? Sony will soon give consumers the chance to shoot 3D films instead of just watching them. Sony revealed a fleet of new camcorders at CES yesterday, including two with three-dimensional video capture.

At $1500, the Sony HDR-TD10 3D High-Definition Flash Memory Handycam Camcorder is the more impressive of the two. The camcorder features two lenses and two image sensors, allowing users to capture both 2D and 3D video. Users can view their video on 3D HDTVs with glasses or toss the glasses and instead watch the video on the camera’s 3.5-inch LCD screen. Both lenses deliver a 10x zoom, optically stabilized even in 3D mode, and the camera will come with 64GB of internal flash memory.

For those who think $1500 is a bit too steep, the $250 Sony MHS-FS3 Bloggie 3D is a better option. Like the HDR-TD10 listed above, Users can capture both 2D and 3D high-definition video and users can view the three-dimensional video on the camera’s LCD screen without the use of glasses. The Bloggie comes with 8GB of flash storage.

Both 3D camcorders will be available in April.

Here’s a brief overview of the two 3D camcorders (video courtesy of The Guardian).
