The Sony HDR-TD10: Advancements in 3D Video

The descriptions of Sony HDR TD10 are attractive enough to impress anyone. Basically, it is a portable video camera and recorder (Camcorder) which can record 3 dimension (3D) video. One of its prominent features includes the presence of dual lens system on the front of the Sony HDR TD10, and it actually looks like a face with two eyes. The HDR TD10 records in 1920×1080 High Definition resolution, but most impressive is the fact that it’s the only camcorder outside of the JVC GS TD1 that works with a  sensor-system and dual lens, and is capable of recording 3D video with Double Full HD.
