Twin lenses allow adjustable convergence point

Panasonic at CES introduced a 1080p 3D camcorder designed for professional applications. The system utilizes twin lenses, eliminating the need for complex 3D rigs with several cameras and separate recorders. Both lenses, the camera head, and memory card recorder are all integrated into a single body, with the entire unit weighing less than 3 kg.

The twin lens system allows users to manually adjust the convergence point depending on the recording situation. Controlling the camera's optical axes is said to be necessary for producing natural-looking 3D across a wide range of focal distances.

Video is saved directly to dual SD/SDHC memory cards, while users can also access the content by plugging the camera into a PC or Mac. Panasonic is currently working on developing production systems designed for producing 3D video on media such as 3D Blu-ray.

The twin-lens 3D camcorder is expected to ship this fall, with prices starting at $21,000.
