The Panasonic VW-CLT1 3D Conversion Lens is a special dual-lens attachment that, when paired with a compatible Panasonic camcorder, records right-eye and left-eye images simultaneously to produce three-dimensional video. The right and left images are together captured at a resolution of 960 x 1080, with a field of view equivalent to 58mm on a 35mm camera. Able to focus from 1m to infinity, the lenses share a convergence point of 1.5m (4.9')--which means images recorded closer will appear to be coming out at you, while those further away seem to recede into the distance. These colorful 3D images can then be viewed at home using a TV that employs the side-by-side method of 3D playback.
The VW-CLT1 3D Conversion Lens fits Panasonic camcorder models HDC-SDT750, HDC-SD900, HDC-TM900, HDC-SD800, and (via the included step-up ring) HDC-SD90 and HDC-TM90.
Note! The included 41.5 to 46mm step-up ring is intended for use with this 3D conversion lens only. Vignetting will occur if you use this ring with another 46mm lens attachment.
- 3D Image Recording
When the 3D conversion lens is attached, the camcorder 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 camcorder 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.
