Capture your precious moments in an immersive 3D experience with the compact HDR-TD20V Handycam Camcorder. Dual Full HD sensors produce true 3D videos with 1920x1080 60p/24p resolution and 20.4 megapixel still images. The HDR-TD20V also allows you to view 3D video directly on the 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD display – no glasses needed.




Key Features

Double Full HD 3D Consumer camcorder

The Sony Handycam HDR-TD20V utilizes two Full HD sensors to capture true 1920x1080 3D video for a more immersive 3D experience. Most 3D cameras achieve the 3D affect by splitting a 1920x1080 signal into two 960x540 channels in order to squeeze them onto one sensor, thereby limiting resolution on the final output.

3D Ready 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD display (1229K) w/TruBlack technology

The LCD is also 3D ready, enabling you to view your 3D content directly on the camera’s LCD without the need for 3D glasses. TruBlack technology brings remarkably higher contrast and brightness to the camcorder’s 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD display, delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare.

1920x1080 Full HD 60p/24p recording*** w/20.4MP still image capture

Capturing 1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you record your memories in exceptional Full High Definition quality. Capable of 60p recording*** and playback via HDMI and compatible HDTV** providing stunning clarity and incredibly detailed playback of your memories. If you’re looking for a film-like quality look to your video, 24p recording* is available for you.

64GB* embedded Flash Memory

The built-in 64GB* embedded Flash memory 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.

Back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor for superb low-light video

Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

Dual Wide Angle G Lenses to capture everything you want

Experience the pinnacle of Sony lens technology with the professional-quality G Lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, the 29.8mm(2D) and 34.4mm(3D) focal length in Video Mode offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/ Active Mode

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video, whether you’re shooting in 3D or 2D.

10x Optical Zoom in 3D mode

Zoom in on your subjects even in 3D mode with 10x optical zoom.

17x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action***

Get even closer to your subject from afar with 17x extended zoom. Extended zoom works in conjunction with 10x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

Tracking Focus follows selected subjects***

Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object.***

Manual Control (Iris/Shutter/Exposure/White Balance)***

Get the most out of your camcorder with enhanced manual controls. The assignable dial allows for control of focus, exposure, white balance, iris, and shutter speed.***

Easily switch between 2D/3D with dedicated switch

A dedicated switch allows for easy switching from recording 2D to 3D, whether you’re recording or playing back video. In 3D mode, only 3D content will be displayed for playback, however when in 2D mode, all content will be displayed and played back in 2D. This allows you to record all your video in 3D and choose later whether or not you want to playback in 2D or 3D.

5.1ch Surround mic for vivid and dynamic surround sound

Dolby Digital 5.1 channel recording captures active sounds coming from all directions, so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording.
Sony Built In plugs

Event Browse groups photos/videos for you for easy reference

Highlight Playback creates movies with transitions for you

Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel. The easy 2D/3D selector switch allows you to show only 3D video when 3D is selected. For 2D playback of all video, set the switch to 2D and the camera will display 2D and 3D videos for playback on a standard HDTV.**

Clear Phase stereo speakers for true and dynamic sound

Bring your video alive with Clear Phase stereo speakers with linear phase correction. Drawing on Sony’s high-end audio expertise, renown S-Master digital amplifier technology is utilized to produce more true-to-life sound.

Direct Copy to external HDD without PC******

Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive****** (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV** (HDMI cable required), allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.

Wind noise reduction for clear voice recording

Wind Reduction reduces noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience.

Intelligent Auto (120 different scene combinations possible)

Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes and wind noise reduction. There are 120 different combinations possible: Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Low light, Macro, Portait, Baby, Walk, Tripod, Wind Noise Reduction. The camcorder utilizes an advanced sound processor and sophisticated noise reduction algorithms to reduce wind noise by up to 10db compared to other models. In addition to reducing low frequency noise, iAuto also suppresses mid- and upper-frequency noise, resulting in clearer, more enjoyable sound.

Golf Shot***

Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite “sequence shot” image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action***.

Built-in Flash for still photography

The built-in flash will help you shed light on your subjects when shooting still images, giving you more flexibility when capturing memories.
Sony Built in USB

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge

The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.

Geotagging with built-in GPS receiver & NAVTEQ maps

A built-in GPS receiver**** makes the HDR-TD20V an ideal choice for travelers. The receiver gives you the ability to view your current location on the LCD map display, as well as "tag" your shooting locations. Tagged videos and still images can be reviewed and played back using the Map Index function on the camcorder or once downloaded to your computer using PlayMemories Home software*****. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder's clock to the proper time zone.

The quality of the camera and the 3D is much better than I expected!
John J Spadaccia
I was blown away by the quality of the image and the 3d effect I saw on my Samsung 3d tv.

The video at night was very good, a few situations where it was grainy.

The predecessor, the Sony TD10, had a stereo base of 30mm, which is already on the low end for producing a clear 3D effect.
Sony managed to reduce this down to 20mm in the TD20, which means you will have a 3D effect exclusively on close-ups. Not on material with normal to far distances to the camcorder.
If you do not mind the bigger exterior, the Sony TD10 is the BETTER buy for 3D filming.

(Pardon my English grammer, because I never studied English at school and my mother tongue is not English either but just love the language)
I studied about this camera for two months on the web and finally played with it at local Best Buy and bought it for 1169 dollars on a web price match and it worked. I have used it now for two weeks filming historic places, flowers, birds and my son playing soccer. I have also purchased the Best Buy 209 dollars ADW for 3 years for peace of mind because the LORD's rains fall on all humanity equally.
Also objects close to see its real 3D effects on the 160" of screen with Optoma 3D Projector (with 3D converter 3D-XL) and I have to tell you that what my family and I saw was amazing. Almost as equal with the quality of Hugo (the movie) clarity.
I used 3DXL connected with the provided mini hdmi and the camera communication set to SBS (not the 3DXL but on camera itself) and watch it diectly from the camera to the projector in amazing 3D.
I also took footage of turtle under the water from above the lake in the local park) and it was just amazing.
I know some says the 20mm (this one) with the 30mm the TD10, I have to say that actually even with the 20mm, this one beats the TD10 in many respects including the finish of the the HD quality both in 2D and 3D.
I am a professional and this camera is not a professional camera but it is still a professional in the price and quality that this product brings.
I have a bi-weekly TV show (live gospel and teaching) and the studio takes care of that part with BIG BOYS but for my pre-edited TV programs, I am impressed enough to switch from my faithful 8 years old Sony DCR-VX2100 to this new blessing.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By seagoat8888 on December 9, 2012
I bought this purely as part of my hobby in 3d photography and filmmakers. I assume many people will be interested in it also as a general camcorder, for which it's pretty slick:

- a nice zoom range
- decent touch interface (if a little dated-feeling)
- good stabilization

But as a 3d enthusiast, I have some serious gripes, even after just a few days.

- The 3d is recorded in a format that I've had trouble finding support for.
- The camera advertises that it can shoot stills, and it can shoot stereo video. But it CANNOT shoot stereo stills. HUH?? You'd think that all of the hardware and software is there to do this, and yet they quietly reveal (in the thick instruction manual only) that 3d stills are not possible.
- The camera advertises that it can shoot 24p and 60p. Search the fine print and you'll see that it can't shoot progressively in stereo, only interlaced. This kindof destroys my purposes with the camera, unfortunately.

I'm still deciding if I want to return it. It's really fun to shoot, and I'm planning to get a 3d tv so I can review footage at home. But it's an expensive device if you're not 100% supported in your purposes... Wondering if a TD30V will come out, and if so, they will address these concerns? I hope so, because home 3d filmmaking offers huge opportunities.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Overall, I think this is a very nice camera - a little on the pricey side for your typical consumer, but if you need to have a lot of the whistles and bells of a video camera you may want to consider this one. I've waited a while to write this review, but now have used this for about a month and have tried out most of the features. As my basis / background / comparison in reviewing the camera, I also own the Sony HDR-CX160 camera.

The picture quality to me is crystal clear and transferred over to my computer for ripping to a DVD without any issues at all. Colors, shapes, everything is crisp and in nice detail.

Using the 3-D capabilities of the camera, it is fairly effective for up close and personal recording, but forget it at a distance. I hooked up a recorded 3D video I had made to my TV (also 3d capable) and, without glasses, you did get a minor 3D effect. Wearing a pair of 3D glasses it was a bit more pronounced. I don't watch much 3D, and for my purposes I'm not sure how much of that feature I will use in the future. The cool thing was hooking it up to my TV via an HDMI cable vs. alternate means and running the video directly from the camera. Kids really like that, also (3D or not), especially as they relive the birthday party that happened just a few hours previous on the same day.

The camera comes with 64 gig is more than sufficient for my purposes - after filming two birthday parties, a piano recital, and two other events I wasn't anywhere near to filling it up before I was transferring video off of the unit.

I have not purchased an upgraded / higher capacity battery, as I haven't really pushed the battery that was standard.
