Aiptek HD 3D – the UK’s first 3D Camcorder
A couple of weeks ago Panasonic announced that its new HDC-SDT750 would be the first consumer 3d camcorder, but it seems that a German company called Aiptek has beaten them to the punch by releasing their portable HD 3D camcorder.
The Aiptek HD 3D can’t really be compared to the Panasonic in terms of class, but for a sneak peak at what 3D can do it’s well worth it. The Aiptek HD 3D uses two separate lenses to capture in 3D which can be viewed straight back on the 2.4 inch 3D display.
Movies can also be played back via HDMI to a 3D enabled TV, but if you don’t own one the files can be converted to view on a standard screen with the bundled software, but you’ll have to don the supplied glasses to see it in 3D.
The HD 3D camcorder can also shoot movies in 2D at 720p and capture still images at 5 megapixels; an SD card slot is built in and can support up to 32GB, giving around 800 minutes of video time.
The Aiptek HD 3D is available now for around £199.
