New Sony Camcorder Lineup Revealed At CES

Sony has unveiled its new camcorder lineup at CES, and there are many impressive models to choose from. Let’s see what sort of features these new models are packing.

3D Pro Camcorders

People see in 3D because they have two eyes, each relaying a slightly different perspective to the brain, which then combines the two images to create a sense of depth. Traditional cameras and camcorders can never capture 3D because they have only one lens.

Camcorder Roundup

Consumers have more choices in camcorders than ever before, and some of them seem downright professional with features sets that are packed to the rafters. Canon’s VIXIA HF G10 Flash Memory Camcorder shoots 1920 x 1080 high definition video, and you can choose frame rates of 60i, 30p or 24p for a cinematic look and feel.

Panasonic Announces HDC-Z10000 3D Camcorder

Panasonic has just announced a new 3D camcorder, the HDC-Z10000. It uses a pair of lenses and dual CMOS sensors to record AVCHD 3D video, and you can see the 3D effect right on the camcorder’s 3.5-inch LCD without wearing 3D glasses. T

3D Video with the JVC GY-HMZ1U

3D video is proving to be a lot more than just a passing fad. More and more movies are being released in 3D, and new 3D TVs are being announced all the time. Newer still are 3D camcorders, which can produce 3D video at the touch of a button. 

The New Sony NEX-VG20 Camcorder with Interchangeable Lenses

If you snooze you lose—so the saying goes. Manufacturers can’t simply put their feet up and relax once they come out with a groundbreaking product. Products must be updated regularly in order for their makers to stay on top, and that’s exactly what Sony has done with its new NEX-VG20 interchangeable lens camcorder.

Sony’s new DEV-5 and DEV-3 Binoculars Capture 3D HD Video and Stills

Picture this if you will: you’re on an expedition funded by the National Geographic Society to confirm recent sightings of the supposedly extinct Ivory-Billed Woodpecker along the Choctawhatchee River in Florida’s panhandle.

Field Monitors for Video & Still Cameras

Camcorders and a growing number of DSLRs feature LCDs that swivel and/or tilt to better enable image composition from less-than-ideal camera angles. Swivel-based LCDs, especially larger LCDs, can prove to be especially handy when you have to compose photos from a distance.

The New Canon VIXIA HF G10 Flash Memory Camcorder

How much could you reasonably ask for in a camcorder that fits in the palm of your hand? Would it be too much to ask for 32 gigs of internal flash memory, in addition to dual SDXC card slots? How about a color viewfinder and a touch-screen LCD?

Sony NEX-VG10

The first creature to crawl out of the primordial ooze onto dry land probably wasn’t much to look at, but I doubt anyone will disagree that those first few steps were a landmark event that opened the door to future evolution.
