3D Video Camera Review For Home Use

3d Video cameras reviewWhen people are looking for 3D video cameras, they have in mind to get more 3D video making than the regular 3D pictures. Until 2010 the only 3D cameras were old plastic made-for-geeks stereo cameras, some of you might even seen the 3D 80’s blockbuster ‘Jaws’ movie.. The whole 3D was for geek tech photographers and there where no 3D video cameras at all.  

This all changed when Avatar was released – and the beginning of the 3D trend came like a technological Tsunami. First came Fujifilm at 2010 and announced the Fujifilm Finepix Real W1 3D camera. Then other companies released they are working on 3D video cameras too.  At the beginning of 2011 the main players in this market released their new 3D video cameras and new 3D technologies at the CES convention at Las Vegas.

Today you may find several 3D video cameras, some sold though Amazon.com, others are sold through Amazon.co.uk. In this 3D video camera review you can find information on existing 3D video cameras which are distributed for home use.

Panasonic 3D Video Cameras Review

 There is a rather wide range of Panasonic 3D video cameras you can choose from, their price range goes from $600-$1300, but it is expected to get lower as new 3D video cameras reach the market. From the outside most of the Panasonic 900 and 800 series look the same, while they have slightly different features and technology abilities.  

Panasonic HDC-HS900K 220GB HDD 3D Video Camera

This is for now the top of the 3D video cameras Panasonic has for the home use. The Panasonic HS-900K is another video camera from the 900 and 800 series, with the latest Advanced 3MOS sensor system, HYBRID O.I.S image stabilization, 2D & 3D video capture capability. The Panasonic has a gigantic 220 GB HDD, SDXC/SDHC Memory Card Recording.

The huge 220 GB and SDXC cards capability means you can make longer 3D videos in Full HD. This Panasonic 3D video camera is capable of Full HD transfer rate of 28 Mbps, 1080/60p recording (Full-HD, 1,920 x 1,080, 60 progressive recording).

The 3D lens is an attachable lens which can be mounted on the Panasonic HS900k. With the 3D conversion lens the images are recorded by the ultra-fine sensors into a clear vivid bright 3D HD video. The huge memory allows long 3D video capturing no other 3D video camera can compete with.

Panasonic HDC-TM900K Twin Memory 3D Video Camera

This TM-900 (Twin Memory) is the latest Panasonic 3D video camera, it is actually the basic Panasonic HD video camera, with the 3D twin lens attached on top.

The twin 3D lens makes it possible for this Panasonic TM 900 to capture 3D Videos by dividing the image light to two separate sensors, which each record HD images or videos for HD watching. The Panasonic 3D digital video camera uses the advanced 3MOS System (which can be found in all Panasonic 3D video cameras) for transferring scenes to the memory card, even at low light situations.
