Panasonic is developing a 3D camera that is capable of capturing full HD video. Currently, most 3D recorders require dual cameras be mounted in close proximity to one another.
What Panasonic has done is taken the two cameras and incorporated them into a single twin lens 3D camcorder.
Not only does this simplify 3D technology, but it it also complements the 3D plasma televisions and the 3D entertainment content that are going to be ever more popular in the coming years.
The new system will also use P2 flash memory who’s “non-mechanical construction and compactness will also be incorporated into the company’s 3D image recording and editing equipment to make production in the field highly flexible and efficient.”
At this time, this is a conceptual gadget with no word or pricing, but it is the right direction for TV entertainment that will probably get other manufacturers to sit up and take notice.
