1. Sony True Full HD Recording
The edge that this 3D camcorder has compared to the other 3D camcorders is that it can capture full HD resolution recordings. The Sony HDR-TD10 Handycam puts to action two Full HD sensors for capturing true 1920×1080 3D video! WOW ! You will appreciate this once you sit at your home and share those 1920×1080 resolution videos. Your 3D effects and crystal clear viewing is a true upgrade than any other 3D camcorder currently sold. The power of these HD sensor lenses goes for the 2D videos you record as well.
2. Sony 3D Handycam Internal Memory
A 3D camcorder may be sophisticated with sensors and feature modes, but at the end it all come to the storage size and recording possibilities and the speed data is written and read from the memory. Every 3D camera or camcorder need to capture at once two images to create the 3D perspective depth. This means larger file storage and faster processing data speeds.
The Sony 3d HD camcorder is equipped with 64GB embedded Flash memory. These size of memory belongs to the new and larger storage size segment of the SDXC memory size (most 3D cameras have SDHC memory which are up to 32GB card size).
Even if you think this memory capacity is enough, you soon find out that it is huge for the 2D video capturing, allowing up to 25 hours of 2D high-definition video footage (HD LP mode). But when it comes to 3D HD video recording then the 64GB will hold up to 5 hours of high-definition 3D video.
Some 3D cameras that will be released this year or next year are planned to have up to 240GB of internal memory. They will be a challenge for your home computer and will surely need a high speed transfer cables to deliver these huge files to the HDTV.
3. Sony 3D HD Camcorder Zoom
There is a little difference between the 3D recording and the 2D video recording as it comes to using the zoom capabilities. With the 3D recording you will be able to use the 10x optical zoom. This 10x is more than needed for covering far and near recording objects and creating interesting zoom-in / zoom-out scenes.
When using the 2D video recording, there is ability to use the 10x optical zoom, and also enjoy an extended zoom of 17x. These zoom possibilities can be done with digital zoom modes that make each pixel bigger and artificially magnifying the seen object.
4. Sony 2D and 3D Video Photography Features
If you have a Sony digital camera you may probably know that you are in good hands the technology will be on your side to help you create better videos and get technological assistance for better results from your Sony camera. This tradition carries on with the Sony HDR-TD10 3D Camcorder.
When shooting 3D videos you will enjoy the Optical SteadyShot, this is the image stabilization technology to lower the natural shakes and moves that make a non professional video less tiring to watch.
You can enjoy more features when using the 2D video recordings, such as the Tracking Focus mode. This special mode works as an extension of Face Detection (See the Sony TX9 3D camera review) it will allow you to select an object (lets say your child’s face) and with a touch of the LCD (control panel) have the 2D video focus follow the selected object.
5. Sony 3D camcorder Self Editing Feature
There is something frustrating knowing you may capture the most fascinating scenes and because you are not James Cameroon, the outcome will be a long boring scenes by scene sequence. For exactly this reason you have the Highlight Playback feature, it identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. So it actually does everything for you! You do the fun part, the Highlight Playback will pack it to something worth viewing.
It is semi automatic editing allows you to even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel. Only these scenes will be used. There is a great option of 2D/3D selector switch, so you can create only 3D video scenes to be edited when 3D is selected.
