After the big announcements from Sony and Canon this year, it's no surprise that Panasonic, a leader in professional camcorders, decided to get its feet wet by announcing their own 3D camcorder - the HDC-Z1000.
CES 2011 may forever be remembered as the year 3D HD shooting became affordable. There were many companies that jumped on the 3D bandwagon this year including JVC and Panasonic, but nowhere was this more evident than at Sony's booth. Of all of the tech though, one of their most exciting announcements was the creation of the world's first Full Double HD 3D camcorder, the HDR-TD10.
Panasonic today announces pricing for its compact High Definition models, the HDC-TM55, HDC-HS60 and HDC-SD60, and its full-featured standard definition camcorders, the SDR-H85, SDR-T50, SDR-S50. All six models will be available in mid-March 2010.
