DXG 3D Camcorder

DXG 3D front small-thumb-461x550-31674

By Evan Ackerman

What with all of those 3D TVs that everybody was flogging to death at CES last week, it sure would be nice if you could, you know, create your own 3D video content. This camcorder from DXG has just about everything you’d expect from a consumer video cam, except that it’s got an extra lens next to the first to let you take stereoscopic vids. It’s cheap, too, at only $400.

Cheap 3D recording? I know, you’re thinking there must be a catch. And there is, and it sucks. The catch is that the camcorder takes 3D video in Motion JPEG, and it seems likely that you’ll only be able to watch that video (in 3D, anyway) on a 7″ digital video frame that DXG includes with the camcorder. So yes, it doesn’t matter if you have a 3D TV or not, since you probably won’t be able to play back this camcorder’s 3D recordings on it.

The camcorder, with the video frame included, should be available this June.

    Holy Crap Batman! This 3-D thing is gaining some steam. I just wish they'd hold off on 3-D until a more refined for can be introduced. Such as holographic displays that don't require glasses or double this or something that. I just see replacement after replacement every year. Kinda like they do with everything else. The good part is that I have the opportunity to overpay for technology that will be worthless next year.

    OOO then you can buy those almost sunglasses 3D glasses… Yea, my $400 is going to something else.
