Here is a stereoscopic 3D music video of the song Trop Long by the French music group Lumière Noires, you can watch the embedded YouTube 3D video above or download the same video from the link below in Side by Side format to watch on your computer with the 3d Vision Video Player or the Stereoscopic Player (don’t forget to select 16:9 aspect). What is interesting in this video is the fact that it was not shot with a professional 3D camcorder, but instead a consumer one was used – the Sony HDR-TD10. You are welcome to share your comments about the video should you watch it.

At the 2012 CES Sony has announced a new more compact 3D-capable consumer camcorder in the form of Sony HDR-TD20V, a camera apparently based on the last year’s HDR-TD10, but with reduced size in order to make it more compact. According to Sony the new HDR-TD20VE is around 66% of the size of its predecessor, and while it is not bad to have the camera becoming more compact, there is something that suffers from the size reduction. I’m talking about the fact that the interaxial distance of the new model (Sony HDR-TD20V) has been further reduced to about 21 mm, and while this makes it more suitable for shooting closer things in 3D, if you shoot more distant things they will be looking flatter than with the older HDR-TD10.
Sony HDR-TD20V 3D Camcorder Main Features:
– Up to 4hr Full HD 3D on 64GB memory
– Dual 1/3.91 type Exmor R CMOS Sensor and dual BIONZ processor
– Dual G Lens with 10x optical zoom; 12x extended zoom (3D) / 17x extended zoom (2D); 33.4mm wide angle (3D) / 29.8mm (2D)
– Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode
– Up to 20.4 effective megapixel still photo (2D only)
– 5.1ch surround sound with Auto Wind Noise Reduction and Closer Voice
– 8.8cm/3.5″ wide Xtra Fine 3D LCD touchscreen
– Stereo speaker with S-Master Amplifier technology
– Connect and quick charge with built-in USB cable
– GPS with detailed mapping
The new Sony HDR-TD20V apparently is also not capable of recording 3D photos, you can capture only 2D photos with even higher resolution than with the older model (HDR-RD10) that also was not capable of taking 3D photos. The new model HDR-TD20V is also only capable of recording in 50i/60i (depending on region) 3D mode, so still no 24p 3D recording option… or with order words Sony just made the 3D camera more compact and with a bit smaller interaxial, there is not much improvement in the functionality it offers. The Sony HDR-TD20V should be available on the market around the end of March this year with the same price as the Sony HDR-RD10 is currently available at.

Thanks to Michael from iWATCH3D and the release of the new Sony Vegas 10.0d update we now have some 3D video footage in Full HD resolution for each eye that was shot with the Sony HDR-TD10 consumer 3D camcorder. The video you can download from the link below is recorded in Auto mode, 3D 1080i50 AVC/MVC 28 Mbps and then was edited with Sony Vegas Pro 10.0d where it was deiterlaced using the blend mode. Michael was able to take the footage with a pre-production model of Sony HDR-TD10 3D camcorder during the Gadget Show Live 2011 on April 16th.
