The PAL HDR-TD20VE Full HD 3D Handycam Camcorder from Sony takes full HD 3D video (1920x1080) using its low-light-friendly Exmor R CMOS sensor, the same sensor that brought low light still images to the next level. Unlike other 3D camcorders, the camera features 2 1920x1080 full HD sensors instead of combining them onto 1 sensor, providing a true 3D experience. The camera includes 64 GB of flash memory so you'll have enough memory to shoot video, even if you record mostly in 3D. 2 wide-angle Sony G lenses let you capture more of the scene without having to move back. The video is also enhanced by a surround microphone which provides a better true-to-life playback experience.

The 3.5" touchscreen LCD lets you view not only your 2-dimensional images and video but is even capable of displaying 3D videos without the need for special glasses. Take a 3D video and view it right away, it's that simple. The LCD also employs Sony's TruBlack technology which yields high contrast images and video on the LCD so you can more easily see the screen in bright light. The camera's intelligent auto shooting modes takes the guesswork out of shooting video by detecting ambient settings and adjusting the camera settings accordingly. Additionally, select from a host of scene modes including sports, portrait, low light, snow, beach, sunset, scenery, and night mode. Intelligent auto goes 1 step beyond traditional auto modes. Instead of choosing only 1 scene mode, the camera combines multiple scene modes for a total of 60 different combinations so you get the perfect recording every time. The camera also provides the option to manually adjust settings such as white balance, exposure, focus, iris, and shutter speed.

The HDR-TD20VE features still picture capture at 20 MP. Thanks to the camera's powerful image stabilization and fast frame rates, the single frames you isolate out can transform into high-quality blur-free images.

The camera's built-in GPS receiver lets you geotag your videos and photos. There's no need to remember where you took a video or photo, the GPS receiver geotags your photos and videos so you'll always know where you were. Additionally, NAVTEQ maps are included so you can also view your current location on the LCD. The GPS also adjusts your camcorder's internal clock for the current time zone.

In addition to the built in 64 GB of flash memory, the camera is compatible with MemoryStick and SD memory cards, including MemoryStick PRO-HG Duo and SDXC cards. Transferring the data to a computer is easy thanks to the built-in USB cable. There's no need to take the memory card out of the camera - just connect the USB cable to your computer and transfer your videos and images. Additionally, you can use the USB cable to transfer files directly to an external hard drive, perfect for backing up data on the road or making room for more shooting. While connected to the computer, the USB cable will also charge the camera's battery so you can focus on shooting, not where to charge the battery.

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
