Hi folks,

Like most I was pretty blown away with the 3D imagery in Avatar so in a world where, as I write, there are more 3D capable TV sets on the market than 3D Blu-ray titles to play on them I guess we should be grateful that Panasonic has added two new options for creating 3D imagery.

The first is the HDC-SDT750 camcorder. The press release is here and you can read a hands on review at Home Cinema Choice

Cool glasses or what? "What" probably. :lol:

The second, and arguably of more interest to members here, is "new compact 3D-capable interchangeable lens". The press release doesn't even specify the focal length. Here's what it looks like:

Quite how much of a 3D effect one is going to get on anything much further away than the tip of Pinocchio's nose remains to be seen with the two lenses so close together. It's expected to be available later this year.

Bob.

I suppose that there will be harsh limitations as you suggest, maybe "worked arround" some by software. I wasn't at all impressed by the 3D effect on movies that were shot in 2D.
But it's a start.

I've seen the 3rd party "3D" adapters on ebay, but I guess things are moving on if big name manufacturers are getting in on it too. The biggest thing they need to fix is the requirement for viewing glasses...
