Don’t expect super quality. If the $500 Fujifilm W1 has subpar quality, imagine something half the price. But for basic video work, it should do well. Below is an exerpt from the press release. The camera should be in some retailers now and we’re looking forward to a review.
To address the difficulty that many are facing in creating their own 3D content, ViewSonic has announced the launch of its easy-to-use 3D HD camcorder. With an estimated SRP of only £150, the ViewSonic 3DV5 makes it easy for anyone to record their own 3D movies and watch them back on their 3D-ready TV, monitor or projector.
The ViewSonic 3DV5 is simple to use, featuring a one-touch recording function and the ability to quickly switch between 2D and 3D recording modes. Once users have recorded their content, then they can either plug the camcorder into their computer via USB, or plug it directly into a 3D TV using the included HDMI cable. There is also the option to watch the content in 3D on the device, without the need for 3D glasses, thanks to the built-in ‘autosterescopic’ display. Videos can also be uploaded directly to YouTube’s 3D channel and watched in 3D using the supplied ‘anaglyph’ glasses, even if using a standard 2D display.
