DXG Taking Pre-orders For 3D Pocket Camcorder and 3D Media Player

August 3rd, 2010 · 3 Comments · Shooting in 3D

It seems that a company called DXG is actually trying to beat Aiptek, who should have their cheap 3D portable camcorder and 3D photo frame on August 15th, by shipping their counteroffer on August 6th. However they will offer their DXG-5D7V 3D Pocket Camcorder and DXG 3D Media Player only as a bundle and for a price of $599.99 USD…

The DXG 3D pocket camcorder comes in a compact pistol-grip design, equipped with dual lens system to record both video (640×480) and photos (5Mp) in 3D format. There is still no clear information, but according to the specifications the 3D video is most likely being recorder in Side by Side format with 640×480 resolution per eye. The camcorder has a 3.2-inch autostereoscopic 3D LCD display, the recording is done on SDHC flash cards with the camcorder supporting up to 16GB with the video stored in H.264 AVI files and the photos in JPEG. The 3D camcorder has an HDMI port that should allow you to directly connect it and play the 3D video on a 3D-capale HDTV.

    My Finepix Real 3D W1 is still better.
    It has a better lens separation (DXG 3D’s ones look very close), an optical 3x zoom even for 3D pictures, does 640×480 stereo videos and supports SDHC flash cards up to 32Gb.
    If they hope to sell it the price should be very very low, IMHO.

    I always hate such a marketing picture that show 3D so like here in the frame, that is impossible with this technology .

    Those 2cm base distance is ok for macro, but what about farther objects?

    The small interaxial distance should be Ok for shooting macro and close photos and videos in 3D – up to 3-4 meters away maximum I suppose. I hope that some of the people that get it when it becomes available will share some photos and videos to give us an idea of what the product is capable of…

    But DXG and Aiptek both seem to be targeted as low cost and affordable solutions, and not focusing on features and quality that much. The Fuji is more expensive and it also has its own issues… ;)
