Sony Handycam HDR-TD10Camcorder Review

 

The twin lens system featured prominently on the front of the Sony HDR-TD10 should tell you one thing: this is a camcorder that can record 3D video. The HDR-TD10 can also record 2D video at a 1920 × 1080 Full HD resolution, but it is currently just one...

If you're not looking to shoot 3D, look elsewhere

The best consumer 3D on the market; Fantastic motion in 2D

3D footage is unpleasant to watch; Color, noise, and low light scores subpar

The Sony Handycam HDR-TD10 is one of two consumer camcorders with the capability of recording “Double Full HD” 3D images (the other being the JVC GS-TD1, which we used as a comparison model throughout this review). The fact that the TD10 can record...

Sony HDR-TD10 3D Camcorder Review

 

Instant glasses-less 3D monitoring ; Double Full HD (1920x1080) 3D video ; 2D use of all 3D footage ; Direct Copy to a HDD (no need for a computer)

Manual 3D Depth Adjustment indicator lacked sufficient information for precise control ; No 3D stills

Fun, easy and effective 3D video with the option of 2D video at any phase makes the TD10 an excellent choice for bringing depth to your scenes.

Sony HDR-TD10E 3D camcorder review

 

The Sony HDR-TD10E 3D camcorder is a great way to start making 3D movies with ease, thanks to its high-performing lens and a generous 3.5-inch LCD touchscreen

Easy to use ; Great 3D visuals ; Impressive still shots

Disappointing 3D touchpanel ; Bit pricey ; Slightly heavy build

Many are likely to bulk at the price, but if you want to start shooting in 3D and have little knowledge about filming in the format, the TD10E takes many of those complex aspects out of your hands. While we were left a little disappointed with the...

Sony HDR-TD10 Review

 

The current king of consumer 3D camcorders

If you’re going to do 3D video properly you don’t want the left and right views to share the same lenses or sensors. No, far better to give each view its own lens and hi-def sensor, as the Sony HDR-TD

Sony HDR-TD10E

 

We've seen a host of 3D camcorders appearing over the past few months, making it easy to record your own movies and take advantage of the latest 3D TVs, laptops and even smartphones. The Sony HDR-TD10E is the world's first full high-definition 3D...

As with other 3D camcorders – such as JVC's GS-TD1 – the Sony HDR-TD10E delivers vibrant 3D images via two of most things. There are a couple of lenses, and a couple of sensors, and the camcorder can record two images simultaneously. This allows full...

There's nothing exciting about the design of the Sony HDR-TD10E. It's compact and square, and although this makes it easy to pack away when you've finished filming, it's not a particularly ergonomic camcorder to use

The Sony HDR-TD10E is well worth a look if you're in the market for a Full HD 3D camcorder. Features like the 10x optical zoom make it a versatile solution, and it's also incredibly capable when it comes to 3D footage. Just don't expect it to come cheap.

Excellent little 3D camera for near-range general work.

 

Much better than Nu-View, much cheaper than Panny 3DA1, I love this little camera, but... sure could use some editing software, and more control... it's here, it's 3D, get used to it! Updated on May 15, 2011

Low cost dual camera system. Excellent no-glasses lcd screen. Manual controls,however arcane. Physical size permits mounting on main camera for 2D/3D shooting. 5.1 Audio recording. Very nice images in 3D or 2D. Cost allows cheap multicamera shooting

Waiting for Vegas 10d, or Godot, whichever comes first. Awkward manual controls (Handycam, after all). Still unknown stream separating capability (Waiting for...). No recording with lcd closed. No pause in main camera control. No ; lanc control

Big problem

 

I bought this vidcam when it came out. Generally, I am a fan of Sony's products. Until now (almost a year) there is no support for 3d playback for PS3. Sony promotes 3D and call itself a leader but even its own systems can't support each other: if you...

good 3d, very good 2d

Forget about sharing your video clips, no 3d playback support for PS3 (or any other platform), basic functions missing

Edit your TD10 videos on vegas, baby

 

I reviewed the td10 about a year ago. I loved it then and still do. I see many reviews claiming that they can't edit and burn 3d video to bluray. This is totally untrue. Sony Vegas pro11 & the less expensive consumer version offers full 3d editing...

True stereoscopic 3d in full HD

Product Specifications

Special moments are even better the second time around when captured in true 1920x1080 3D or Full HD 2D. That's videographer geek-speak for vastly richer, more immersive image quality—the kind that engages, amazes and inspires. The HDR-TD10 camcorder allows you to easily switch between recording in 3D and 2D, and if your friends (or fans) don't have a 3D-compatible TV or PC, it's no problem; everything shot in 3D can also be played back in 2D. And with a 3D-ready LCD, you can view content in amazing 3D directly on the camcorder's LCD—without the special glasses.
