One of the latest 3D products from Sony to be introduced during the CES 2011 event is the HDR-TD10 Handycam camcorder. What makes this camcorder special is that it can capture 3D videos at 1920×1080 resolutions. Two full HD sensors placed side by side are used to make 3D recording possible. This device is also capable of recording regular 2D videos if you choose it. Once you finished recording, you can check your videos in full 3D or 2D on the unit’s 3.5” display without using any special glasses.

The HDR-TD10 may be a bit on the large side but considering that it shoots in 3D it more than makes up for its size. One convenient feature is that its 3D lens is built in which means you don’t have to calibrate anything if you like to shoot 3D content. With an easy menu system and its automatic configuration in 3D mode this unit can be easily used by beginners.

Here are some of the HDR-TD10 specifications.

  • Double Full HD 3D
  • 64 GB internal flash memory
  • 3D Xtra Fine LCD display
  • Exmor R CMOS
  • 1920×1080 Full HD 60p recording
  • 10x optical zoom in 3D
  • 17x extended zoom

The HDR-TD10 is priced at $1499.00 and is available for pre-orders at the Sony store. It is expected to be released on April 2011.
