Ordro isn't a well-known brand for camcorders around these parts, but the company's new HDV-D350S is looking to grab some headlines by virtue of its integrated pico-projector. The D350S records up to 60fps 1440 x 1080 video or 12-megapixel stills, but also has a removable pico-projector attachment that slots onto a mount on the top of the camera; that can project up to a 60-inch WVGA picture.
We're big fans of Sanyo's Xacti HD camcorder range, and we love bathtime, so the new waterproof Xacti VPC-CA102YL is destined to be a hit here at SlashGear. Capable of recording Full HD 1920 x 1080 video, the CA102 can store over 480 minutes of footage in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format onto a 64GB SDXC memory card; alternatively it can take 14.4-megapixel photos.
Panasonic has made good on its promise to unveil a consumer-level 3D camcorder - though we did catch a glimpse of it on Monday - and the HDC-SDT750 certainly looks interesting. In effect a regular Full HD camcorder with a new, image-splitting lens attachment, the SDT750 can shoot 960 x 1080 resolution 3D footage, or - with the lens taken off - 1080/60p HD 2D footage.
Panasonic are preparing to unveil a consumer-level 3D camcorder, tipped as being the first to the market by a big-name manufacturer. The company is yet to provide details about the new model, but has confirmed a Tokyo press event on July 28th and that it will be far more in line with their current, 2D range in terms of bulk, than their existing AG-3DA1 professional 3D camcorder (pictured).
Having teased us with a concept of their ideas for a camcorder version of their interchangeable-lens NEX cameras, Sony has now unveiled the production version of that dream. The Sony NEX-VG10 Interchangeable Lens HD Camcorder is, the company reckons, the first consumer model to support switchable optics of this sort, sharing the same E-mount lens interface together with support for regular A-mount lenses with a suitable adapter. Thanks to the comapny's Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor, the NEX-VG10 can shoot Full HD video at 24Mbps or 14.2-megapixel stills.
With the iPhone 4 and Motorola XT720 both coming to market with native 720p HD video capture, it's time for the Nexus One to catch up or give up; happily, thanks to xda-developers, a new firmware hack can grant the Google Phone high-def camcorder skills. Currently available for Nexus One handsets running Android 2.1, and with a test version for those running 2.2 Froyo on their phone, it allows for recording at up to 1280 x 720 resolution.
