Designed for TV and HDTV systems in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and South America - the Sony HDR-TD20E Full HD 3D Handycam Camcorder (PAL) is perfect for capturing your 3D adventures, memories and events. The camera features dual, full HD sensors that shoot true 3D videos with 1920 x 1080p resolution at 50 or 25 frames per second (fps). You'll be able to capture eye-popping home movies that will blow your friends and family away when viewed on your 3D HDTV or the 3.5" LCD TruBlack display, which requires no special 3D glasses. Of course, those 3D movies can also be viewed in 2D. Plus, the camera can record straight 2D movies and capture digital stills as well. It features an internal 64GB embedded flash memory for storing your footage. The HDR-TD20E utilizes two "Exmor R" sensors, which capture 1920 x 1080 3D video and are back-illuminated for excellent shooting - even in low light situations.
Other features that facilitate the camcorder's impressive video quality include full HD 2D 1920 x 1080 recording and dual wide-angle Sony G lenses that afford a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting in both 2D and 3D modes. Sony's Optical SteadyShot image stabilization also boosts the overall video quality. Plus, there's a 12x 2D optical zoom, 10x 3D optical zoom and 17x extended zoom. In order to match the audio recording with the high-quality video, the camcorder features a 5.1 channel surround sound microphone with wind noise reduction, which helps keep the all-encompassing dynamic audio as clear as possible.
In addition to the integrated microphone, there are also microphone and headphone jacks, as well as integrated Clear Phase stereo speakers for true, dynamic audio during field playback. The HDR-TD20E is even equipped with a manual control dial, Active Interface Shoe for attaching various Intelligent Accessories, an HDMI type-C mini output, a built-in light with flash for the 20.4 megapixel still image capture function, Highlight Playback, Event Browse, Intelligent Auto, and Golf Shot. Plus, the HDR-TD20E is capable of Direct Copy to an external HDD without the need for a PC. However, if you do want to connect the camera to your computer, the USB cable is built-in to the camcorder.
