Panasonic HDC-SDT750K

Updated on August 13, 2010

The World's First 3D Shooting Camcorder

Now you can record 3D images with the world's first consumer 3D camcorder. The Panasonic SDT750K will allow you to record true-to-life 3D images like those recorded for use in Hollywood movies. Just attach the 3D conversion lens that comes with the Panasonic SDT750K ,and the left and right eye images are simultaneously shot with two lenses, therefore artificially reproducing visual disparity.

  • Advanced 3MOS SYSTEM and Crystal Engine PRO for improved efficiency of lighting, increased sensitivity and reduced noise to enable bright, low-noise recording even in dim lighting.
  • A large 3.0-inch LCD for easier viewing and improved touch operation
  • A12x optical zoom and 18x intelligent zoom function.
  • Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 60 Progressive Recording for high density, ultra smooth images
  • HYBRID O.I.S (Optical Image Stabilization)
  • Intelligent Auto¬†

What is 3D imaging

The Panasonic SDT750k comes with a special 3D conversion lens that records right eye-eye and left-eye images each with 960 x 1080 pixels. These images are simultaneously recorded using the side-by-side method which allows it to perceive images like the human brain. The brain uses visual disparity to create an image that has the appearance of solidity and depth by interpreting the images that are slightly different from the left and right eye.

You will need a TV that is capable of displaying 3D images, 3D eyewear, and HDMI cable connection to play the recorded 3D images. It is also possible to play SD Memory Cards that have 3D images recorded onto them by using an AVCHD compatible player/recorder. There are some good 3D HDTVs and Blu-Ray Disc players/recorders on the market for you to get the full HD experience.

The Difference Between 3D HDTVs and 3D Ready HDTVs

3D HDTVs are capable of displaying 3D images out of the box, 3D glasses are required. 3D Ready HDTVs require a 3D starter pack which can be purchased separately or in a bundle with a Blu-ray player to take all the guess work out for you.

Active Shutter Glasses Vs Passive Glasses

With Active Shutter Glasses an HDTV will display one image to your left and one image to your right eye. The glasses receive a timing signal that allows them to alternatively darken over one eye while alternatively displaying different perspectives to each eye. The glasses are controlled by an infrared, radio frequency, DLP-Link or Bluetooth. Manufacturers like Sony, Panasonic, LG and Samsung are now developing their own Active Shutter Glasses.

Passive Shutter Glasses also known as Polarized 3D glasses are cheaper than Active Shutter Glasses because they are not as technologically advanced. Passive shutter Glasses have polarized lenses that display one of the two overlapping images to each eye. You will only be able to get the full 3D effect if you sit directly in front of the display.

      I cant wait to make my own home 3D movies. Has anyone seen how this compares to the Aiptek 3D camcorder that just came out?
