If you haven’t jumped onto the 3D bandwagon yet, you’ll want to very soon if this year’s NAB show is any indication. Meet Panasonic’s latest conceptual camcorder, which will take P2 memory cards. For the moment, Panasonic’s 3D Full HD Camera Recorder is just a prototype, but it’s pretty clear that they intend to bring it to market asap. It looks pretty awesome.
The device will feature a twin-lens system for capturing 3D footage natively in 1080p, and the video streams will be stored on P2 cards. Will it be able to be used for 2D shooting at all? It doesn’t look like it right now. Either way, this is a step in the right direction for Panasonic. Everybody else is doing the 3D thing after all.
