JVC TD1 3D camcorder ships to the US

JVC today claimed a milestone as the first to ship a camcorder for the mainstream with 3D in HD. The GZ-TD1 should be in stores now and should cost $1,700 for its 1080i 3D shooting. The camera comes with 64GB of flash storage built-in and an SDXC slot for more.

The camera uses two 3.3-megapixel CMOS sensors to create a stereoscopic effect for its 3D and can also work in extra modes, including side-by-side 3D and regular 2D. Recording in the full HD mode limits the playback to those few devices that support the MVC format, but the side-by-side mode will work even on 2D Blu-ray players.

It promises relatively bright and sharp images through its dual 5X, f1.2 lenses.

We tried the camera at CES and found it likely to be a good high-end camcorder regardless of shooting mode, although the new limitations on export formats might limit its usefulness without putting it on a true 3D Blu-ray movie disc.

    Hmm

    Does it have a glasses-free 3D screen? Otherwise, it's a non-starter.

    DOA

    DOA ... 3D is an already fading fad.
