Unveiled at a press conference this morning, the HDC-SDT750 is the first consumer 3D camcorder to hit the market. This new camcorder is able to shoot in both 2D and 3D (by attaching the 3D conversion lens), and let users enjoy watching them at home on their 3DTV.
Panasonic Australia’s Group Marketing Manager, Audio Visual, Sophie Barton said that the HDC-SDT750 is its ‘most advanced camcorder released.’
“This exciting new technology means that capturing 3D footage no longer needs to be left to the professionals. Users can now capture their own memories and see them come to life in immersive lifelike images right in their own loungeroom. This further expands the enjoyment of 3D in the home,” said Barton.

The camcorder is equipped with a wide range of sophisticated functions, including the 3MOS System, which features improved noise reduction (NR) technologies; 1080/50p recording in AVCHD; iA (Intelligent Auto) featuring the new HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabiliser) for more effective hand-shake correction; and a manual ring that provides easy, fingertip control over the focus, zoom, exposure (iris), shutter speed and white balance settings.
Users can play back 3D videos recorded on the SDT750 on 3DTVs, including Panasonic VIERA 3DTVs – either by connecting the Camcorder to the TV via the included 3D-compatible Mini HDMI cable, or via the SD card slot of any AVCHD-compatible player/recorder.
For 2D video playback, insert the SD card into the slot of a compatible VIERA TV or AVCHD-compatible player/recorder. VIERA Link19 compatibility also allows the user to simply connect the SD-T750 to a compatible VIERA TV via a Mini HDMI cable, and operate the camcorder using the TV remote control and following on-screen prompts.
The new HDC-SDT750 will be available from consumer electronics retailers and photographic specialists next month for $1999.
