Item arrived very quickly and was ready to use right out of the box. As with all of my battery operated electronics I put the battery on the charger while I read through the manual, but a few pages in, I realized that the battery had a full charge. Took a 3d photo, and a 3d video and expected to be able to pull the SD card and put it in my 3d DVD player and see everything in 3d, but only the photo would show up. Connected the HDMI (provided) cable to my 3d TV and was able to view the video. Camera has a very easy to use menu that allows complete configuration for multiple resolutions, record quality, WB and EV. Can record in both NTSC and PAL so I can send stuff to my friends in Europe.

I want to capture and save 3d video but I don't have a bluray 3d DVD burner (if there is such a thing) so I'm researching if the AVCHD disc created by the Arcsoft software (provided) will play back in 3d? If not then I'll have to store my videos on the SD card and replace them when they become full.

The reasons it didn't get 5 stars:
The lens flips up and interferes with the tilt of the LCD screen.
The battery has to be removed to recharge.
There is no image stabilization.
Navigation button to small and not well labled for functions.
Camera has to be hooked up and turned on to view videos on a 3d TV. (unless I learn that the files will work on AVCHD)

This is a $250 HD video camera that works as advirtised. It's not profesional quality, but I just want to record some my kid's sports events, and family gatherings so this is worth the money. Still learning the Arcsoft program for capturing video and images from the camera. It provides a one click to upload to youtube/facebook, but I haven't really looked the program beyound that.

Pros: Decent Start-up Time
Includes HDMI Cable, Small Carrying Case, and Shoulder Strap
Simple, Easy to use controls
Decent quality screen
Light weight

Cons: Very sub-par microphone / Audio Quality
3D video is only 960x1080 pixels wide because the frames are encoded side by side
No image stabilization whatsoever
Design flaw does not allow you to tilt screen up
Very difficult to get the PC USB interface to work

Summary: When I purchased this product I expected it to be a larger size than it actually is. The two cameras on the front of the device are not as far apart as human eyes so the 3D effect is not as intense as real vision. The camera will only operate if the lenses are horizontal which prevents you from tilting the display at an upward angle. Using a tripod mount will block you from quickly accessing the SD card slot. The device does not do USB charging and require you remove the battery from the device to charge it with a separate charger. Toggle knob for changing modes between video and photo mode is flimsy and is easy to accidentally bump. I expected picture and video quality to be better. Part of the problem is that pictures and video are encoded so that each frame of video takes up half of one 1080 frame. This reduces the quality of the 3D video mode by half. Videos are pretty much only watchable if uploaded to YouTube because YouTube fixes the aspect ratio issues and allows you to do 2D viewing as well. The audio quality is worse than you would get even with just a modern cell phone. The audio becomes distorted very easily so you probably wouldn't want to have music in the background of whatever you're recording.

I have been waiting for an affordable 3D camcorder. I purchased an LG 55" 3D TV at the end of Dec. 2011 and within two weeks, purchased the DXG 5F9V camera. This was not my first DXG camcorder. I had been using the 2D palm sized camcorder by DXG for a few years before it was lost. I was always happy with the previous camcorder so I figured it best to stick with DXG. I knew what to expect. Admittedly the audio recording is a drawback, but I didn't buy it for that purpose. If I want professional quality audio for the "big production", I own the equipment and software to make that happen. The 5F9V is simple to use. It offers the most sensible options such as resolution selections, white balance, b/w or sepia effects, night mode, fine/standard quality selection, auto power off options, and digital zoom. Although the specs indicate that the zoom is not functional in 3D modes, it seems to work on mine. In 1080p & 720p @ 30fps resolutions the zoom appears incremental but in 720p @ 60fps the zoom appears smooth. After 30+ years of using video cameras, I have grown out of the zooming habit. The 720p 60 frames per second resolution option is great for fast moving action. The 1080p and 720p resolutions reproduce excellent color and detail and I was surprised at the accurate linearity for the small fixed focus lenses. A feature that I really love is the option to have the camera turn on and off by the monitor screen opening and closing. Makes sense. The camcorder has no video stabilization built in but much of that is solved by the use of a monopod or tripod. You can get a monopod for $15 at WalMart. Seeing the LCD monitor outdoors on a bright day is difficult due to the gloss finish of the screen but is easily solved by applying a stick-on glare filter.Read more ›
