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

64GB Embedded Flash Memory

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization With 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

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

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

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" Xtra Fine LCD display, delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare

Back-Illuminated Exmor R 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 R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R CMOS 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

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

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

Tagged videos and still images can be reviewed and played back using the Map Index function on the camcorder or once downloaded to your PC using the supplied PlayMemories Home software. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder's clock to the proper time zone

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
