Product Description

Product Description

Now it's your turn! Recording 3D images is now as easy as attaching the 3D conversion lens that comes with the worlds first* consumer 3D camcorder, the HDC-SDT750. Powerful, true-to-life 3D images like those created by Panasonic 3D recording technologies for use in Hollywood movies can now be easily recorded and viewed at home.** With the addition of our new 3D conversion lens to our 700 series highly touted 3MOS system you can shoot 3D video using the same principle as human vision. Left-and right-eye images are simultaneously shot with two lenses. The SDT750 creates 3D images by artificially reproducing visual disparity. *As a consumer camcorder with 3D conversion lens for the AVCHD standard (as of July 1, 2010). **A TV that is capable of side-by-side method 3D playback, 3D Eyewear, and HDMI cable connection are required to play the recorded 3D images. Even without the 3D conversion lens attached, there are countless ways to enjoy the SDT750. This innovative camcorder takes an evolutionary leap forward from the many Panasonic models that have excited users worldwide. It is equipped with a wide range of sophisticated functions, including the 3MOS System, which features improved noise reduction (NR) technologies, 1080/60p recording, iA (Intelligent Auto) mode in the new HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization), and a wealth of manual controls.

From the Manufacturer


World's First* 3D Compatible Camcorder with 3D Conversion Lens

Unlike previous 3D images that required complex, professional equipment to create, now you can shoot your own. Simply attach the 3D Conversion Lens to the SDT750 for quick and easy 3D shooting. And because the SDT750 features the Advanced 3MOS System, which has gained worldwide popularity, colors are vivid and 3D images are extremely realistic. Let the SDT750 save precious moments for you in true-to-life images.

* As a consumer camcorder with 3D conversion lens for the AVCHD standard (as of July 1, 2010).

How does the human perceive 3-dimensional images?
Because the left and right eyes are located at different positions on the face, the left and right eyes percieve slightly different images. the difference between the two images is called "visual disparity." The brain processes these two images with visual disparity to reconstruct spatial conditions, enabling us to see things with three-dimensional depth.

Easily save important scenes in 3D.
3D Image Recording

When the 3D Conversion Lens is attached, the SDT750 artificially produces an effect called visual disparity. Right and left images are captured simultaneously by the two lenses, and recorded using the side-by-side method. To view* the recorded images, simply connect the SDT750 to a 3D compatible TV, such as a VIERA 3DTV with an HDMI mini cable.

* A TV that is capable of 3D playback using the side-by-side method, 3D Eyewear, and HDMI cable connection are required for playing the 3D images you have recorded.
3D Image Recording

You can adjust the level of low-frequency sound that is included in the audio track while shooting.

The history of Panasonic camcorders using three sensors
* As a consumer camcorder with 3D conversion lens for AVCHD standard (As of July 1st, 2010)

High Quality 2D Image & Sound

Captures stunning low-light scenes.
NewAdvanced 3MOS System

3MOS SystemTo maximize the beauty of Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 60 progressive recording, Panasonic further refined its globally acclaimed 3MOS System. The Advanced 3MOS System combines the 3MOS Sensor, Leica Dicomar Lens, and Crystal Engine PRO, and incorporates noise reduction technologies that are a step above those of our conventional noise reduction systems. The 3MOS Sensor, with its three-sensor configuration, provides a resolution of 7.59 million effective motion image pixels (2.53 million x 3). The 3MOS Sensor splits the light information captured by the lens into the three primary colors - red, green and blue - and processes each color with its own individual sensor. This reduces light loss compared to the 1MOS sensor, and renders colors, details and gradation all with intricate detail and natural beauty. The results are spectacular. Images shot in bright conditions are even more vibrant and detailed. And in dim lighting, you can capture clear, sharp images with minimal noise and vivid colors. See for yourself how Panasonic technology brings out the best in Full-HD image quality.

* Compared to previous Panasonic models.

High-density, ultra-smooth images.
1080/60p Recording (Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 60 Progressive Recording)*

Full HDThe SDT750 uses the progressive method to record twice as much image data as the interlace method. Whereas interlacing requires two images to produce a complete picture, the progressive method records a single image as a complete picture. Plus, the 60 Progressive Recording of the SDT750 produces 60 images per second**. This extremely dense image information creates intricate detail and silky smooth motion. Even when subjects move quickly, afterimages are minimized to create more natural images. The progressive method is most effective when shooting designs where moire patterns tend to occur, or when capturing scenes during sports events where the subjects are intensely moving around. Also, the recorded images displayed clearly even when they are made into still images, so it is possible to preserve stunning photos when clipping them from videos.

Interlaced Scanning (1080/60i)
Only half of the image data is reproduced in each picture. Fabric patterns run together, and moiré patterns appears.
Progressive Scanning (1080/60p)*
Reproduces all of image data in a single picture. Patterns in fabric are crisp and clear with no color bleeding.
Interlaced Scanning Progressive Scanning

* 1080/50p (full-HD, 50 Progressive Recording) in PAL areas. **In NTSC areas. 50 images per second in PAL areas.

Beautiful zoom shots of distant subjects.
NewIntelligent 18x Zoom and HYBRID O.I.S.
The SDT750 features an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 18x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving the image resolution. You get sharp images of highly detailed objects -- without the blurry edges. Plus, the SDT750 is equipped with HYBRID O.I.S, an image stabilization system that corrects hand-shake blurring by combining the action of its hybrid optical and electrical image stabilization systems. Even when zooming, where hand-shake often occurs, both optical and electrical hand-shake correction make it possible to record beautiful images with approximately 2 times* the hand-shake suppressing effect as conventional models.
* Compared with the HDC-SD700, HDC-TM700, HDC-HS700.

Even more powerful hand-shake compensation.
NewO.I.S. Lock (Optical Image Stabilization)

The image-stabilizing effect is increased by pressing and holding the O.I.S. Lock indication on the LCD screen, which maximizes the blur detection sensitivity. This is great for when you want to zoom at a fixed angle, like for bird watching.

* Considerable blurring is generated by the shifting of the corrective lens when the camera is panned or tilted.
A bright, high-performance lens.
NewLeica Dicomar Lens

LEICA DicomarPanasonic HD camcorders use Leica Dicomar lenses, which are renowned for their ability to render sharp images and excellent shading. They also suppress ghosting, flare, and distortion at the image edges. Even in strong sunlight, these superb lenses maintain high contrast and resolution. A bright new F1.5-F2.8 lens with a 46mm filter diameter has been created for the SDT750. Efficient light collection allows the new lens to capture bright, clear images even in dim lighting or at high shutter speeds. This high-end lens brings out all the beauty of Full-HD images.

Intricate details from Intelligent Resolution Technology.
Crystal Engine PRO

Crystal Engine ProThe new Crystal Engine PRO instantly processes the huge amount of data that goes into Full-HD images, and further enhances Full-HD quality. It produces smooth, high-resolution zoom shots even when the range exceeds the limit for optical zooming. Crystal Engine PRO clearly delineates even the tiniest details of your subject, with extremely natural beauty. New Noise Reduction (NR) Technology minimizes noise when recording in low lighting conditions, and Intelligent Resolution Technology ensures sharp and crisp pictures, resulting in bright and beautifully colored motion images.

Sharpens details and enhances smooth areas.
Intelligent Resolution Technology

Intelligent Resolution TechnologyThe Intelligent Resolution Technology incorporated in the new Crystal Engine PRO uses edge detection technology to confirm the edges of objects within the image, then emphasizes the edges for optimal clarity. For example, it brings crisp definition to patterns and the outlines of objects like flowers. Conversely, it reduces noise and enhances the natural smoothness of parts without edges, like the sky. The increased sharpness is especially effective for images with delicate details. This highly advanced technology maximizes the beauty of Full-HD images.

* Intelligent Resolution Technology works only for digital zoom shots.

Captures large groups, even when shooting from up close.
35mm Wide Angle Lens*

35mm WideThe 35mm wide-angle lens on the HD 700 Series and SD600 fit more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional 44.9mm lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room.

Picks up audio from all directions to reproduce a natural, lifelike sound field. With the five highly directional microphones, this mode enables the microphones to focus on sounds coming from right in front of you, even when the lens is not zooming.

Wind Noise Canceller

The technology of the previous Wind Cut function has evolved to form the Wind Noise Canceller. The new function automatically detects and suppresses only wind noise, to give you natural sounds with lifelike ambience. Also, unlike the previous Wind Cut function, which switched to monaural recording, the Wind Noise Canceller enables stereo recording. This maintains natural sounds when shooting outdoors.

Set the HD camcorder to Digital Cinema mode to shoot in the progressive 1080/24p (24 pictures per second) format for NTSC area, and in the progressive 1080/25p format for PAL area. Progressive scanning captures clear, vibrant images with intricate detail. You also get faithful images with an appealing film-like quality.

Digital Cinema Color*3 with VIERA

Selecting the Digital Cinema Color mode makes it possible to shoot film-like images that are ideally suited to the Digital Cinema Color of VIERA plasma TVs. Colors recorded in this mode look richer than those recorded using the conventional Panasonic standard. For example, the subtle shades of red and gold in flowers, and the greens of leafy trees are remarkably true to life.

*1 The video captured as 24p using Digital Cinema Mode is converted and recorded as 60i.
*2 The video captured as 25p using Digital Cinema Mode is converted and recorded as 50i.
*3 When using a TV that is compatible with "x.v.Color", images that are recorded in Digital Cinema Color mode will have a wider color range than conventional images. The color range varies depending on the TV. x.v.Color is a registered trademark.

Stunning still images, even when enlarged.
Still Picture Recording at 14.2 Megapixels

Still Picture Recording mode lets you shoot with a maximum resolution of 14.2 megapixels*. You can also simultaneously record still images and video at 13.3 megapixels**.

* For images recorded with a 3:2 aspect ratio.
** For images recorded with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

Gives your subjects smoother looking skin.
Soft Skin Mode

When this function detects skin tones, it softens the focus in that area. This has a skin beautifying effect, which makes wrinkles and lines appear less noticeable. When turned on, this function makes blemishes and moles look less conspicuous, while preserving resolution in areas of the picture outside of the skin.

Sharps focusing even up close.

You can shoot macro close-ups while maintaining a distance of 70cm from your subject. In addition, using the zoom at full magnification makes it much easier to capture extreme close-ups without your body or camera casting a shadow on the subject and while keeping the background in soft focus.

I bought this Panasonic 3-D camcorder based on the fabulous features it shows in the description.
Zoom 12X with 18X capability and High Definition full 1080P.
It has many features usually found on Professional models but when you connect the supplied 3-D attachment the buck stops here, or should I say the value.
When shooting 3-D you do not have HD-1080P. In fact, your shooting in 3:2 instead of 16:9 which means the High Definition quality is gone and you have a black border surrounding the screen.
There's no Zoom.
The Fuji W3 may only be 720P but at least if has a 5X optical zoom and plays in 16:9 format.
The Fuji W1 and W3 both shoot 16:9 3-D still photos.
Even the cheaply made Aiptek 3-D camera takes photos and Video in 16:9 format and it's only $200.00 but the quality is really bad.
As for the Panasonic. it does not shoot still photos at all in any format with the 3-D attachment.
I am lost for words on how Amazon and especially PANASONIC avoids any mention of these facts.

They certainly lead the consumer to believe the fabulous features of the camcorder are available while shooting both 2-D and 3-D.
Also, Panasonic should not claim that the consumer will be able to shoot 3-D video just like Hollywood with this statement:
This is false because the depth of the 3-D does not come even close to reality of a really devoted 3-D camera such as their professional model or the old Toshiba.
Panasonic makes a great professional 3-D camcorder priced at $21,000.

Basics: The camera is a SMALL (good or bad depending on your needs) unit that takes very nice HD video and has some cute & trendy features such as face recognition etc.
It records to an SD card. It has HDMI output. It works. It takes nice stills. Not bad.

But the main reason to own this camera is that when you attach the front lens unit it engages the camera both structurally AND functionally. Functionally it shuts down EVERYTHING that isn't straight forward 3D. So don't worry about how to use facial recognition in 3D, you can't. But that's OK. Or is it?

I happen to know a whole bunch about 3D and especially 3D video as I have been doing it for over 20 years. That's right, and it matters. I'll explain as I go.

This camera is both a breath of fresh air and a cold shower.

To do real 3D you need two cameras - each one assigned to one eye - a right and a left - properties of living human beings. The mechanism is thus subserviant to how human beings observe and react and perceive.

So to understand the problems imagine your subject - a nice red car - parked dead center on a very large lazy susan that extends many yards beyond the subject. On the far side of the lazy susan we have a microphone stand. near us on the near side of the lazy susan is a vertical coat rack. Both of these non car objects are there just to enhance the 3D experience.

What do we see? If we are looking at the car (the director's intention), then if we are really there where the camera would be, we see the car. Duh. But we don't really see the other two objects so well, they are blurry as they are out of OUR eyes focal lengths for looking at the car.

After attaching the 3D lens you lose the function to zoom, take photos. The video quality is not good in 3D.
I bought this Cam only for it's 3D capability, and i am very disappointed.
But I have to mention that as a 2D Cam you have every thing a super quality and features.

This is my fourth camcorder (2 Sony's and 2 Panasonics) and first HD. It is equal to or exceeds my expectations for the picture quality. The audio, from the embedded microphone, is pretty good too. I can't say I'm crazy about having to access so many settings via the touchscreen, but it works. Other reviews have covered the camera adequately, so let me talk a minute about the "deal".

This is virtualy the same camera as the Panasonic TM700, except 1) it has no internal RAM (32GB, worth about $50); 2) it includes the 3D lens and firmware (the MSRP for just the lens is $500); and it supposedly has slightly better image stabilization. The TM700 lists for $1300 and is selling for around $900-1100. The SDT750 lists for $1400 and is selling for $700-800. It looks like the 3D version isn't selling too well (not too many folks have 3D TVs to display it on). So buy the SDT750 even if you don't need/want 3D and get the equivalent of the TM700 at a huge discount. The newer Panasonic camcorders that support 3D don't include the lens, so I'm going to try to sell mine for a couple of hundred dollars, further lessening the real cost.

I'm a videographer and I was looking into buying the Panasonic TM900 or TM700 because of its great low light and 1080/60p abilities that are very uncommon at the moment in the camcorder world. Then after researching those cameras I came across a review of the SDT750 and it turns out its almost exactly the same camera as the TM700, the only difference is that it has a slightly better powered stabilization system and it it comes with the 3D adapter. However it also lacks the 16gb of internal memory so you have to buy that separate, but for the difference in price between the 700 and the 750, the 750 is way more value for your dollar. I'm 100% satisfied with this purchase. For those who are looking to do some extensive editing look into Adobe Premiere or Sony Vegas, because right now those are the only two editors that support the 1080/60p format from this camera.
