    The world’s first pro quality, fully-integrated full HD 3D camcorder has a name — and it’s up for pre-order. The AG-3DA1 camera (available this fall) is equipped with dual lenses and two full 1920 x 1080 2.07 megapixel 3-MOS imagers for recording 1080/60i, 50i, 30p, 25p and 24p (native) and 720/60p and 50p in AVCHD. It can record for up to 180 minutes on dual 32GB SD cards in AVCHD PH mode, and sports dual HD-SDI out, HDMI (version 1.4), two XLR connectors, built-in stereo microphone and twin-lens camera remotes. This bad boy is listed at $21,000, and you can reserve yours for $1,000 down. That’s nice of them, huh? But that ain’t all! The newly announced AG-HMX100 video mixer (available this June) supports full 3D as well (we’re sensing a theme here), as does the 25-inch BT-3DL2550 LCD monitor for field use (available this September). Just the thing for filming your Avatar fan films, huh? The latter two are priced at $5,600 and $9,900 respectively.

    Actually Noah, the $1000 deposit is a hope to bring a semblance of order to the first deliveries. Don’t know if you were in line when the HVX200 hit, but that was really chaos, but I think you were there. I think the little 3D camera is going to be speaking to a lot of customers for a number of different applications, not just films. And frankly I don’t think you could shoot Avatar with this camera, the inter-occular is not adjustable but convergence is. Although some parts of it you could.

    It is the coolest thing I have played with in a while.

    Thanks for bringing it up.

    Best,

    Hi everyone,

    Do the HD-SDI out ports supply a better codec if you connect them with two external recorders? Will it be possible to get something like the AVCIntra codec with 10 BIT?

    Thanks
    Charles

    Actually the HD-SDI is an uncompressed output. Send it to any compression scheme you wish.

    Best,

    Jan:

    Do you know if the HD SDI output will be 8 bit or 10 bit?
