Conclusion: As a camcorder, it may lack some of the finer things you would expect on a top of the range device (EVF, flash, automatic lens cover) but as a 3D camcorder, it is currently without equal. Things may change with the imminent arrival of the Sony HDR-TD10 though.
Excerpt: You’ve probably heard so much about 3D that you’re red-green-blue in the face, especially with the introduction of Nintendo’s 3DS and 3D HDTV bubbling along in the background. Getting lost in the hype is JVC’s first Full HD 3D camcorder that’s loaded with 64GB of flash memory and is light years...
Pros: Records high-quality Full HD 3D video (MP4 MVC), 3.5-inch auto-stereoscopic touch panel LCD, Touch GUI works well, 64GB onboard flash memory, also accepts SDXC cards
Cons: Expensive, Poor still quality especially indoors, Definitely need a larger, spare battery
Summary: JVC GS-TD1's 3D quality is among the best we’ve seen from a consumer camcorder, but the proprietary files means playback is limited to a direct TV connect. A decent camcorder, but other forces look set to conspire against it.
Excerpt: You also have to adjust to the rules of 3D filming, remembering especially that the key subject area is between one and five metres in distance; if everything is beyond that distance, the 3D effect is relatively flat.
Summary: JVC have just topped off their popular Everio camcorder range with a strange-looking beast. The twin lenses may be rather reminiscent of Wall-E, but they are the secret behind its effortlessly brilliant 3D capture.
