Product Description

Product Description

The HDR-TD10 Handycam camcorder utilizes two Full HD sensors for capturing true 1920x1080 3D video delivering an immersive 3D experience, as well as Full HD 2D video. View 3D and 2D videos directly on its generous 3.5" Xtra Fine LCD display-no special glasses required. Watch all 3D video in 2D as well. Also equipped with 64GB embedded Flash memory, you can record and store up to 25 hours of 2D high-definition video footage (HD LP mode), or up to 5 hours of high-definition 3D video.

From the Manufacturer

Sony HDR-TD10 3DHandycamCamcorder

The World’s first 3D Full HD consumer camcorder HDR-TD10 is set to expand the world of 3D while redefining the meaning of home video. Up until now, high quality 3D image capturing was only possible with professional cameras, but with the HDR-TD10, anyone can shoot stunningly beautiful Full HD 3D videos. From the occasional big moments, to the day-to-day small moments, you can now capture all that in Full HD 3D.

Stunning 3D Image Quality
  • Shot with two lenses and processed with two image processors
    Driven by not one but two Wide Angle Sony G Lenses, two "Exmor R" CMOS sensors, and two powerful "BIONZ" image processors, HDR-TD10 is able to shoot 3D images in Double Full HD.
  • World’s first Double Full HD 3D Consumer Camcorder

  • "Frame packing" method to achieve Full HD quality
    By employing the "frame packing" 3D signaling method, HDR-TD10 is able to produce Full HD 3D images without sacrificing image quality, as both the left and right frames are transferred via HDMI as Full HD signals without being squeezed by half.
  • Shoot in 3D, watch in both 3D and 2D
    Simply shoot in 3D, and have a choice to watch in 3D or 2D later, both in Full HD quality. When HDR-TD10 is connected to a 2D HDTV, only one of the channels of the 3D video will be displayed automatically, without the need to manually switch from 3D to 2D on the camcorder. 
  • Optimum distance between lenses to produce the optimum stereoscopic effect
    One of the most important characteristics in a 3D camera is the amount of stereoscopic effect a camera can produce. Based on our rich experience in both 3D imagery and camcorder technology, for HDR-TD10, a distance of 31mm between the lenses is chosen for optimum performance.
  • World’s first 10x optical zoom in 3D (consumer camcorder)
    Though commonly available in most conventional 2D camcorders, optical zoom is still a rare feature in 3D cameras. However, thanks to a sophisticated auto-adjustment technology, the HDR-TD10 is equipped with a 10x optical zoom in 3D for users to zoom in and out freely in various scenes.
    World’s first 10x optical zoom in 3D (consumer camcorder)

  • Optical SteadyShot (Active Mode) in 3D Steady even while walking
    The HDR-TD10 is equipped with Optical SteadyShot (Active Mode). When used at the wide end, correction angle is ten times greater than without Active Mode, enabling steady images even while walking.

State-of-the-art 3D Technology
  • Xtra Fine 3D LCD touch panel with TruBlack technology
    A true 3D camcorder, HDR-TD10 is equipped with a 3.5-inch 3D LCD touch panel display that does not require dedicated 3D glasses for viewing.This gorgeous 3D display packs an incredible 1229k dots and is capable of displaying both 3D and 2D images with superb details.
  • Parallax barrier system
    Taking advantage of how the human brain-eye system works, the 3D LCD based on the parallax barrier system employs the same concept to make 3D viewing possible without dedicated 3D glasses. By controlling the direction of light that reaches each eye separately, the 3D LCD is able to let each eye see a slightly different image, therefore allowing our brain to create a sense of depth, just as the way human see the world.

By Chad Thomas on May 20, 2011
I shot my first 3D movie in March 2010 using two Canon T2i cameras on a parallel 3D rig. Editing and rendering the footage was incredibly difficult; I used Sony Vegas to edit each view independently and Stereo Moviemaker to adjust the 3D effect. Finally, I was able to master a 3D Blu-ray using a beta version of NetBlender's DoStudio, a $10,000 program that included support for the 3D MVC codec.

Fast forward just over a year. The newly released 10.0d version of Sony Vegas natively supports the MVC codec, allowing 3D footage to be edited as easily as 2D footage. It also allows 3D Blu-rays to be burned directly from the timeline.

As for the camera itself: I was pleasantly surprised to find it exceeded my expectations. Color reproduction is exceptional, image stabailization is very good, and the glasses-free 3D display is extremely nice. Only the sound quality disappoints, but I almost never rely on built-in mics (opting instead for a Zoom H4N paired with an Audio Technica AT875R).

As an entry into the world of 3D, this camera is phenomenal. There are "prosumer" 3D cameras on the way, but for those who edit in Vegas, there's really no better or cheaper way to jump into the world of 3D shooting and editing today that with this camera.

For those without Vegas, editing a bit more difficult. Clips can be edited in-camera using some fairly simple software (you can even download music onto the camera to use as a soundtrack behind your clips). But you won't get nearly the performance you would get using dedicated editing software. And please note: Vegas is the ONLY software under $4000 currently offering the ability to manipulate MVC files. Premiere doesn't have it, nor does Final Cut Pro.

Now that I have one of these beasties in my hand ( thanks to amazon, sony had me on back-order for a month), I can tell you it far exceeds all expectations I had. The quality of the HD 3D images on my Sony 3D LED tv is stunning. Even more amazing is the quality of the 3D video when played on my Viewsonic 3D projector. Using the optoma 3D XL video signal converter which takes 3d content such as 3d Bluray, 3d cable, & now this sony 3d camcorder & scales it down from 1080p to 720p for 3d Dlp Projection, it still looks fantastic & rivals the real-D 3d at my local theater. I have found that the Blackmagic Design Decklink HD Extreme 3D +hdmi capture card is the best way to transfer the HD 3d footage to my pc in its native format. MVC is also the format used for compressing video for Blu-ray 3D. I usually edit in both Premeire Pro & Sony Vegas pro 10, fortunately sony has provided an update to vegas pro 10 which allows editing of MVC & burning to 3d bluray( playable on 3d bluray players).Adobe will soon do the same. Having been shooting in 3d for years, using dual video cameras, & shutter attachments such as the NuView, I can say that not only is shooting great 3D on this camcorder almost idiot proof, the quality is far better than any solution I have used in the past. The "glasses free" 3D LCD Viewpanel is interesting in itself. I find it a good aid to composing shots, since the 3D viewpanal does give a very good indication as to how the image will look on a 3D tv or projector. However, I really don't recommend it for watching your 3d movies. Glasses free 3D is still a bit hokey & can double-up on you if you tilt your head.
When watched on a 3d tv or projector it is fantastic. Oh, one more thing, it takes great HD 2-D as well.

*** i'm editing my review by rearranging the paragraphs (and shorting my review) because there's a lot of confusion on what you can and can't do with the 3d files this camcorder makes. hopefully this will help clarify things***

this camcorder makes MVC format 3D files, these are high end AVCHD files with full hd resolution. this is the same format as the 3D blu-rays you see in the stores. the problem isn't the camera. as of right now, due to licencing reasons i dont understand, unless you want to spend about $4-$12 grand on netblender or something similar, you can't "author" your own 3d spec blu-ray that will work on every player like you get when you buy a commercial movie in the stores. that doesn't mean you can't make a 3d hd blu-ray that will work on all players. it dosen't mean you can't make full HD 3D blu-ray. it does mean that unless you have a lot of time and money on your hand, that you can't make a "full HD 3D blu-ray that works on all 3d players and tvs"

sony recently released its 3d video editing software for consumers, it can be found at or here on amazon at Sony Creative Software Movie Studio HD Platinum Suite 11 V.11 or Sony Creative Software Movie Studio HD Platinum 11for only about $100. with this software you will be able to view and edit the MVC format files this camera makes in 3d, and you can burn 3d blu-rays from it as well,... not full res MVC spec blu ray with menus, but you can burn the files to the disc as a data disc that many players will recognise (like playstation 3).
