I love the looks of this new camera from Panasonic. It’s a consumer level camcorder that records in full HD 1080p but when a 3D conversion lens is used records left and right eye images simultaneously at 960 x 1080 pixels each. The HDC-SDT750 uses Panasonic’s pro broadcast technology developed through Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory and makes 3D image creation affordable.
Other hot spots include time lapse recording (so you can record a flower blooming or a building being constructed), 5.1-channel audio recording that actually uses five microphones, 7.59 million effective motion image pixels (2.53 megapixels x 3) from the camera’s 3MOS chip, and a large-diameter (46mm) F1.5 Leica Dicomar lens (which stops down to 3.2 when using the 3D conversion lens).
In normal HD mode the SDT750 can shoot 1,080/60p (Full-HD 1,920 x 1,080, 60 progressive recording) with no loss of detail and no flickering, making this a nice prosumer HD camcorder as well.
The Panasonic HDC-SDT750 will be available October 2010 with an MSRP of $1,399.95.
