Capture your precious moments in an immersive 3D experience with the compact HDR-TD20V Handycam Camcorder. Dual full HD sensors produce true 3D videos with 1920x1080 60p/24p resolution and 24.1MP still images. View 3D video directly on the 3.5? Xtra Fine LCD display ? no glasses needed.
Double Full HD 3D Consumer camcorder
The Sony Handycam HDR-TD20V utilizes two Full HD sensors to capture true 1920x1080 3D video for a more immersive 3D experience. Most 3D cameras achieve the 3D affect by splitting a 1920x1080 signal in to two 960x540 channels in order to squeeze them onto one sensor, thereby limiting resolution on the final output.
3D Ready 3.5? Xtra Fine LCD display (1229K) w/TruBlack technology
The LCD is also 3D ready, enabling you to view your 3D content directly on the camera?s LCD without the need for 3D glasses. TruBlack technology brings remarkably higher contrast and brightness to the camcorder?s 3.5? Xtra Fine LCD display, delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare.
1920x1080 Full HD 60p/24p recording6 w/20MP still image capture
Capturing 1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you record your memories in exceptional Full High Definition quality.
