Sony Full HD 3D Camcorder HDR-TD10

Multi-Dimensional memory-maker, Sony’s Full HD 3D camcorder...

3D in Double Full HD, 3D viewing directly on 3.5″ LCD—no need for 3D glasses, Full HD 2D playback from 3D recordings, 1920×1080 Full HD 60p/24p recording, 10x optical zoom in 3D.

Special moments are even better the second time around when captured in true 1920×1080 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.

3D to a Higher Degree

Just when you thought shooting in 3D couldn’t possibly get any better, the Full HD 3D Handycam camcorder stepped things up a notch. With two Full HD sensors, this camcorder provides full 1920×1080 resolution on both channels—which makes for a vastly richer, more engaging and immersive 3D experience.



Say Goodbye to Glasses

Goodbye to Glasses

With the 3D-ready 3.5″ Xtra Fine LCD display, you can view 3D content directly on the camcorder’s LCD—without the need for special glasses. Infused with TruBlack technology, the LCD provides superb contrast, brightness and glare reduction—so you can comfortably and accurately review your footage on the fly, even outdoors or in bright light conditions.


Choose Your Own Dimension

Choose Your Own Dimension

Worried you won’t be able to share your 3D videos with friends and family who don’t yet own a 3D-compatible TV or PC? Problem solved. With 2D playback from 3D recordings, everything that’s captured in 3D can be watched in 2D. Now there’s really no reason not to record everything in 3D.



High Resolution Solution

Special occasions are even better the second time around when captured in 1920×1080 Full HD resolution. In 2D mode, preserve precious moments in dazzlingly crisp, clear 60p, or evoke the gorgeous goodness of old-fashioned film when you record in 24p6. And in still image mode, you can freeze your memories into high-quality 7MP 2D photos.

See the Big Picture

No, the G doesn’t stand for “great”—but it could. Proudly at the pinnacle of Sony lens technology, the G lens is engineered for optimal performance, delivering brilliant color, detailed imagery and 10x optical zoom—even in 3D. And with enhanced wide angle shooting in both photo and video modes, rest assured nothing will be left out of the picture.

Make the Switch

Whether recording or reviewing the cool content you just captured, a dedicated switch allows you to shift easily between 3D and 2D. When switched to 3D mode, only 3D content will be displayed; in 2D mode, both 2D and 3D content will be displayed in 2D. This allows you to record everything in 3D, then choose later whether to playback in 3D or in 2D.

Sony HDR-TD10 Key Features

Double Full HD 3D Consumer camcorder

The Sony HDR-TD10 utilizes two Full HD sensors to capture true 1920×1080 3D video. Most 3D cameras achieve the 3D affect by splitting a 1920×1080 signal in to two 960×540 channels in order to squeeze them onto one sensor, thereby limiting resolution on the final output. Because the Sony HDR-TD10 utilizes two HD sensors, it provides a full 1920×1080 lines of resolution on both channels, giving you a richer and more immersive 3D experience.

64GB embedded Flash Memory

The built-in 64GB embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 25 hours of 2D high definition video footage (HD LP mode), or up to 5 hours of High definition 3D video.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/ Active Mode

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video, whether you’re shooting in 3D or 2D.

Tracking Focus follows selected subjects

Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object.

5.1ch Surround mic for vivid and dynamic surround sound.

Dolby Digital 5.1 channel recording captures active sounds coming from all directions, so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording.

Active Interface Shoe to attach intelligent accessories

The Active Interface Shoe lets you mount Intelligent Accessories, such as external lights and microphones, which can help extend the capabilities of your camcorder.

Clear Phase stereo speakers for true and dynamic sound

Bring your video alive with Clear Phase stereo speakers with linear phase correction. Drawing on Sony’s high-end audio expertise, renown S-Master digital amplifier technology is utilized to produce more true-to-life sound.

Golf Shot

Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite “sequence shot” image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action.

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.

Back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS sensor for superb low-light video

Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the “Exmor R” sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

10x Optical Zoom in 3D mode

Zoom in on your subjects even in 3D mode with 10x optical zoom.

Easily switch between 2D/3D with dedicated switch

A dedicated switch allows for easy switching from recording 2D to 3D, whether you’re recording or playing back video. In 3D mode, only 3D content will be displayed for playback, however when in 2D mode, all content will be displayed and played back in 2D. This allows you to record all your video in 3D and choose later whether or not you want to playback in 2D or 3D.

Wind noise reduction for clear voice recording

Wind Reduction reduces noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience.

Event Browse groups photos/videos for you for easy reference

Event Browse conveniently groups your images and videos together for easier viewing. The date range that Event Browse groups your pictures and videos is easily adjusted to suit your needs.

Built-in Flash for still photography

The built-in flash will help you shed light on your subjects when shooting still images, giving you more flexibility when capturing memories.

1920×1080 Full HD 60p/24p recording6 w/7MP still image capture

Highlight Playback creates movies with transitions for you

Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel. The easy 2D/3D selector switch allows you to show only 3D video when 3D is selected. For 2D playback of all video, set the switch to 2D and the camera will display 2D and 3D videos for playback on a standard HDTV.
