If you’ve ever said to yourself what’s really missing is a 3-D camcorder, then you’ll be thrilled to learn that Panasonic will soon be selling what it calls the world’s first consumer 3-D camcorder, according to a report in the New York Post.
The cost? A mere $1,340, television not included.
The camcorder has a removable 3-D conversion lens that splits images in half, similar to what a person’s right and left eye see, the article says.
The effect works best on subjects about three to 10 feet away from the camera. Of course, to watch the footage you’ll need both a 3-D equipped television and glasses.
According to the story, when the 3-D lens is removed, the camcorder takes standard 2-D video as well.
