Would seem that Sony should be coming out with a consumer or prosumer 3D video camcorder soon. Hoping for an affordable one which has dual lenses with reasonable separation and which allows for focusing, unlike the consumer Panasonic model. Anyone heard of such being introduced at next month's CES?

Surely focussing is superfluous? For good 3D you want everything in focus so if you did have control you would simply set the hyperfocal distance for the lens, which is where a fixed focus lens would be set anyway, and then compose so that nothing in your frame is closer than your minimum acceptable focus level.

there is a small trick that allows the Panasonic GH2 DSLR shot 3D video.


it requires the 3D lens for the camera and a small piece of paper or tape to block the lens contacts to the camera body.


with this the camera will shot both 3D stills and video.

Thanks! Of course the GH2 3D Lens and that for the consumer Panasonic 3D camcorder both seem to have compromised separation distance compared to what Panasonic's pro 3D camcorder or even the Fujipix 3D W1/W3 offer.

Looks like I get to answer my own question. Sony has announced the HDR-TD10 at CES and at a price less than $1500 and with availability in April. It sounds like a winner. Here are two links. Glad to see it allows for focusing and that the stabilization function works, unlike on the Panasonic 3D camcorder in 3D mode. Will really be interested in learning whether its low light recording capability will allow it to record indoors without a grainy picture in 3D which was one of the biggest criticisms of the Panasonic. Also hoping that it will allow recording onto SD cards as an alternative to the built in hard drive.

JVC was showing a VERY nice little 3D Camcorder. 2 Chip version (one for each "eye") that rendered the video in full HD resolution for each "eye". Nice little form factor and the price was set at just under $2k (~$1900). They had working prototypes on the floor and the image was GREAT as was the 3D effect as viewed on their passive glasses lcd screens. It didnt look big enough to have room for an XLR mic input though, so it appeared to be aimed at the consumer market. The rep stated it would take SD cards and have a no glasses 3D flip out LCD (that could be viewed in 3D or 2D mode).
