Capture movie quality 3D images with Panasonic’s HDC-SDT750K 3D camcorder…

As a result of research conducted in collaboration with Hollywood film studios over the years, earlier this year, Panasonic announced a professional 3D broadcast camera and succeeded in bringing high-quality FULL HD 3D images to the home for viewing on 3D compatible TVs. Thanks to these groundbreaking developments, Panasonic is now pleased to announce the world’s first consumer 3D camcorder, the HDC-SDT750, which allows 3D images to be recorded at home.

Incorporating Panasonic broadcast technology, this new 3MOS camcorder lets users easily create their own 3D movies, something that only professional image producers were previously able to do.

Combined with a VIERA 3DTV and Blu-ray Disc player/recorder, the SDT750 makes it possible to save precious memories of friends and family in vivid, lifelike images, to further expand the world of 3D enjoyment at home.

How it works

In natural vision, people see slightly different images with their right and left eyes. This difference is called visual disparity. The brain uses visual disparity to perceive spatial depth and the appearance of solidity. This visual disparity is artificially produced for 3D images so that the brain will interpret it as depth and solid-appearing objects.

Panasonic HDC-SDT750K 3D Camcorder

The SDT750 comes with a special 3D conversion lens that records right-eye and left-eye images simultaneously through its two lenses. The right and left images (each with 960 x 1080 pixels) that enter through the lenses are recorded using the side-by-side method. By attaching the 3D conversion lens to the SDT750 3MOS System camcorder, which incorporates a variety of Panasonic broadcast technologies, and connecting the SDT750 to a TV that is capable of side-by-side method 3D playback, vividly colorful 3D images can be viewed at home.

Packed with Innovative Functions

Even without the 3D conversion lens attached, there are many ways to enjoy the SDT750, which has evolved from previous Panasonic models that have gained extreme popularity all over the world. The innovative 3MOS System with improved Noise Reduction (NR) technologies records dimly lit images in greater beauty than ever before. Other sophisticated functions include 1080/50p recording for ultra-smooth images, a wealth of manual functions controlled by a manual ring for easy, creative shooting and newly incorporates the HYBRID O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) system to bring clear, beautiful HD image quality to telephoto shots as well.

Panasonic’s iA (Intelligent Auto) function, which was highly popular on previous models, is also included, making it easy for anyone to take beautiful videos

3D Conversion Lens

The user needs only to attach the 3D conversion lens that comes with the SDT750 to record 3D images. In natural vision, people see slightly different images with their right and left eyes, this difference is called visual disparity. The brain uses visual disparity to perceive spatial depth and the appearance of solidity. This visual disparity is artificially produced for 3D images so that the brain will interpret it as depth and solid-appearing objects.

A bright, high-performance Leica Dicomar Lens

Panasonic HD camcorders use Leica Dicomar lenses, which are renowned for their ability to render sharp images and excellent shading. They also suppress ghosting, flare, and distortion at the image edges. Even in strong sunlight, these superb lenses maintain high contrast and resolution. A bright new F1.5-F2.8 lens with a 46mm filter diameter has been created for the HDC-SDT750. Efficient light collection allows the new lens to capture bright, clear images even in dim lighting or at high shutter speeds. This high-end lens brings out all the beauty of Full-HD images.

35mm Wide-Angle Lens

The 35mm wide-angle lens on the HDC-SDT750 fits more people and more of the background into the frame than a conventional 44.9mm lens. This is especially handy when you want to take a group photo in a small room. The 35mm wide-angle lens is especially convenient for recording indoors or in tight spaces. It makes it possible to shoot at a close distance from the subject while fitting both the subject and the surrounding area into the frame. This has the added benefit of allowing the voice of the subject to be clearly recorded, which is an important element in video recordings. The lens captures beautiful images of wide landscapes and allows large groups of people to fit into the frame, making it highly versatile for use in all kinds of situations.

Beautiful zoom shots of distant subjects with 18x Intelligent Zoom

The HDC-SDT750 features a 12x optical zoom and an Intelligent Zoom function that goes all the way up to 18x. When using Intelligent Zoom, Intelligent Resolution Technology lets you shoot at high zoom rates while preserving image sharpness. You get crisp images of highly detailed objects – without the blurry edges.

Advanced 3MOS System

Advanced 3MOS

The high-sensitivity 3MOS System provides an effective motion image pixel count of 7,590,000 pixels (2,530,000 pixels x 3). Even with this high pixel count, thanks to the newly developed technology which increases sensitivity and further-evolved NR technology the SDT750 achieves bright images with minimal noise when shooting under low light conditions. This maximizes the 3MOS features of excellent color reproduction, high resolution and rich gradation, and lets the user capture vividly colored images in both bright and darkly lit places.

High-density, ultra-smooth images 1080/50p Recording (Full-HD 1920 x 1080, 60 Progressive Recording)

Full HD 1080p

The HDC-SDT750 uses the progressive method to record twice as much image data as the interlace method. Whereas interlacing requires two images to produce a complete picture, the progressive method records a single image as a complete picture. Plus, the 60 Progressive Recording of the HDC-SDT750 produces 60 frames per second. This extremely dense image information creates intricate detail and silky smooth motion. Even when subjects move quickly, afterimages are minimized to create more natural images.

The progressive method is most effective when shooting detailed designs where moir patterns tend to occur, or when capturing scenes during sports events where the subjects are intensely moving around. Also, the recorded images are displayed clearly even when they are made into still images, so it is possible to preserve stunning photos when clipping them from videos.

Touch-Screen Operation

The SDT750 features a touch-screen that allows icons displayed on the LCD to be easily operated by touching them with a fingertip. The touch-screen lets users operate a variety of functions intuitively without taking their eyes off of the subject on the LCD. The SDT750 is equipped with a large, 3.0-inch LCD that offers easier viewing and improved touch operation.

Easy 3D Playback on 3D compatible TVs/AVCHD Compatible Player/Recorders

The 3D images recorded with the SDT750 can be easily played back by connecting the SDT750 to a 3D compatible TV, such as a VIERA 3DTV. In addition, it is also possible to play SD Memory Cards that have 3D images recorded onto them by using an AVCHD compatible player/recorder, such as a Panasonic Blu-ray Disc player/recorder.
