Panasonic is first with consumer 3D camcorder

From TrustedReviews:

Like every other area of technology, video is developing at an increasing pace. Digital camcorders arrived around 15 years ago, high definition only five years ago, and now video is acquiring a third dimension as well. Our first taste of consumer 3D videography came from an unexpected direction in the shape of the Aiptek 3D i2. But now we have a higher-end, more mainstream option from Panasonic: the HDC-SDT750.

The clever bit with the SDT750 is a bolt-on attachment for the lens. This contains a pair of lenses oriented in parallel, which pick up two slightly different points of view, one for each eye. The camcorder senses when this has been screwed on for the first time, and prompts you to follow a calibration wizard. The lens cap contains an adjustment pattern on a translucent plastic panel. Three dials under a flap on the top are used for precise positioning, to optimise the 3D image. Unfortunately, it’s recommended that you re-calibrate each time you remove and re-attach the lens, which is somewhat irritating.
