3D is certainly the latest buzzword in home entertainment, and if you’d like to replicate the success of James Cameron but on a slightly more affordable budget, DXG may have the camcorder for you. The DXG-321 packs twin lenses that can record 3D video content – albeit only at VGA resolution and in Motion JPEG format – or take 5-megapixel stills, and the company even includes the necessary display to view your footage on.
The camcorder itself has a flip-out 3-inch preview screen, but for more leisurely viewing there’s a 7-inch digital video viewer (we’re guessing it’s a modified digital photo frame) that apparently allows you to see the 3D content without special glasses.
DVICE reckon the stereoscopic effect – likely from a lenticular LCD panel – is pretty convincing, though of course it does mean you can’t really take the footage and show it on your 3D HDTV.
DXG’s camcorder arrives in June 2010, priced at $400 including the standalone display. The company also has a trio of 2D-only models, the DXG-A85 HD (coming March for $300), the DXG-A80V HD (arriving this week for $250), and the DXG-590V HD (on sale now for $200) which simultaneously record in upload-friendly QVGA resolution and HD resolution.
