As the world's first 3D compatible camcorder with 3D conversion lens released on 2010, but Panasonic HDC-SDT750 is called as an excellent 2D camcorder with its stunning image quality and 1080p HD video. When it comes to its 3D features, it’s seemingly to be a lot of complaints among users. Most functions may lose if you opt to film in 3D, like zoom in taking photos, these limitations always annoys us to test its novelty of 3D Conversion lens.
“When shooting 3-D you do not have HD-1080P. In fact, your shooting in 3:2 instead of 16:9 which means the High Definition quality is gone and you have a black border surrounding the screen.”
“Many manual controls are disabled when recording in 3D mode. And 3D video resolution is divided into two equal halfs of full HD.”
“After attaching the 3D lens you lose the function to zoom, take photos. The video quality is not good in 3D.”
Let’s see what's their review on SDT750 2D 1080p Recordings:
“3D film-making is no longer the preserve of Hollywood, an excellent 2D Full HD cam to boot”
“I bought this Cam only for its 3D capability, and I am very disappointed. But I have to mention that as a 2D Cam you have every thing a super quality and features.”
Whether the 3D conversion Lens is still a gimmicky one-off, shooting 3D footage is very easy if only you attach the 3D conversion lens to SDT750 at first, although the controls are limited-12x optical zoom and manual controls are kept to an absolute minimum. If its 3D function can’t draw your much attention, but just as they say, Panasonic is still a worthy-buy as a 2D camcorder. Like other Panasonic Camcorders, it has both PAL and NTSC systems which records videos in 1080 50p/60p on SD, SDHC, and high-capacity SDXC cards. Besides, there’s also 32GB internal memory for us to store instant memories.
