JVC Everio GS-TD1

 

You've probably heard so much about 3D that you're red-green-blue in the face, especially with the introduction of Nintendo's 3DS and 3D HDTV bubbling along in the background. Getting lost in the hype is JVC's first Full HD 3D camcorder that's loaded...

Records high-quality Full HD 3D video (MP4 MVC) ; 3.5-inch auto-stereoscopic touch panel LCD ; Touch GUI works well ; 64GB onboard flash memory, also accepts SDXC cards

Expensive ; Poor still quality especially indoors ; Definitely need a larger, spare battery

We have to give JVC props for taking a huge step forward in home video, leaping from 2D to 3D with the GS-TD1.

JVC GS-TD1 3D Camcorder First Impressions Review

 

The GS-TD1 is JVC's first 3D camcorder and it features a similar twin lens and twins image sensor design as Sony's recent 3D camcorder, the HDR-TD10, which was also unveiled here at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show. What sets the GS-TD1 apart from...

JVC's take on consumer 3D recording, with plenty of options and plenty of bugs

Excellent motion and sharpness in 2D; Lots of manual controls in both 3D and 2D

3D recording was buggy; Poor color and noise for its price range

If you are in the market for a high-end 3D camcorder you only have three options at the moment: the JVC GS-TD1, the Sony HDR-TD10, and the Panasonic HDC-SDT750 (and other Panasonic models that can use the VW-CLT1 3D conversion lens). There are also a...

JVC's GS-TD1 finally unlocks the true potential of 3D movie making

JVC Everio GS-TD1 review

 

Until now, Panasonic has been a lonely champion for homemade 3D, offering a range of camcorders compatible with its VW-CLT1 3D accessory lens. We looked at the brand's HDC-SD900 recently and were suitably impressed, although like all the 3D capable...

Excellent, border free 3D video, 3D still imaging, autostereoscopic 3.5inch touchscreen monitor, versatile shooting and framing options

Unconventional balance takes some getting used to, expensive if you don’t intend to make full use of the 3D, Full HD 3D MVC format is a non-starter for prosumer editors

The JVC Everio GS-TD1 redefines what we can expect of a 3D camcorder. This shooter may be a tad cumbersome, but compared to a pro-rig it’s a masterpiece of compact engineering. We loved the unparalleled creative control on offer, and 3D image quality...

Footage is recorded onto a 64GB internal flash drive, although with the inclusion of an SDXC port this can be doubled at the very least. Recording in 3D takes about a third off of the capacity, meaning the six hours in 2D becomes four. At no point is...

It goes without saying, but without the correct TV setup the GS-TD1 is largely pointless. The 3D quality is among the best we’ve seen from a consumer camcorder, but the proprietary files means playback is limited to a direct TV connect. A decent...

JVC's Everio GS-TD1 is the first consumer camcorder to offer dual-frame Full HD 3D.

Dual-frame Full HD 3D ; Optical zoom in 3D mode ; Decent low-light performance in 3D mode

Very expensive ; Full HD 3D uses proprietary format ; Manual lens cover

Although we’re still not entirely convinced by 3D either as a domestic viewing format or for grabbing your home movies, JVC has at least created a product with potential to cross over into the semi-professional arena. Where the Panasonic consumer...

The best 3D camcorder currently available, and a capable performer in any dimension

JVC have just topped off their popular Everio camcorder range with a strange-looking beast. The twin lenses may be rather reminiscent of Wall-E, but they are the secret behind its effortlessly brillia

JVC Everio GS TD1

 

Want a camcorder that can shoot Full HD in 3D mode? This one from JVC is the first on the market that has its hardware specifications focussed firmly on 3D, rather than on 2D, though it gives you the option to shoot 2D if you want.

Dual-frame Full HD 3D; Optical zoom in 3D mode; Decent low-light performance in 3D mode

Very expensive; Full HD 3D uses proprietary format; Manual lens cover
