JVC Announces a 3D 1080p Consumer Camcorder

Posted Tue Feb 8, 2011 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The GS-TD1 is slated to hit stores at just under $2,000.

Some are enthralled by the way 3D movies change the viewing experience and some love the heightened feeling of realism from 3D sporting events. Others are less satisfied with simply watching and are looking to create 3D video of their own.

JVC says that the GS-TD1 is the first camcorder that can capture 1080p 3D video, and boasts that the new camera can even recreate 3D-like surround thanks to the company's Biophonic technology. It offers a 5x optical zoom, dual back-illuminated CMOS sensors and a 3D glasses-free touchscreen LCD monitor.

The camera also comes with a full editing suite that will allow you to capture, record, edit, archive and share your movies.

You'll be able to pick up the GS-TD1 for yourself in March for a price of under $2,000.
