City of Industry, Ca. -
introduced Thursday the latest iteration in its lineup of high-def 3D-capable camcorders.
Model DXG-5F9V (shipping now at $300 suggested retail) features 1080p 3D resolution. It can be purchased now at the company's
or shortly through participating retail partners.
The 5F9V features a sleek, compact dual-lens design and records 3D and 2D videos and photos in 1080p/30fps HD.
The video cam also has a built-in 3.2-inch glasses-free 3D LCD monitor. The camera's menu controls are said to allow easy adjustments for 3D or 2D shooting, and to switch to a lower resolution video format such as 720p HD at 60fps mode for optimal fast motion recording.
"With 3D content quickly becoming mainstream, from movies to games to online networks, it's evident that consumers are drawn towards this exciting video format. Consumers can now easily create their own 3D movies and view their videos glasses-free," stated Paul Goldberg, DXG USA sales and marketing senior VP. "Not only is this a great 3D device, it takes incredible 2D video and stills so users can take advantage of both shooting choices whether they have a 3D or HD TV at home."
The camcorder ships with 128MBs of internal storage capacity and includes an SDHC type 6 card slot accepting optional cards with up to 32GBs of capacity.
The 5F9V connects to a 3D or 23 HDTV via an HDMI jack and included HDMI cable. It also has a USB port.
The camcorder weighs 8.82 ounces, and includes 128MB of internal storage.
For still photos, the camcorder offers 5 megapixel image resolution.
The 5F9V is powered by an NP-60 Li-ion Battery, and includes a 120x digital zoom range for 2D video (the zoom range in 3D was not available), and 60x digital zoom for stills.
The camcorder is compatible with both PC and Mac computer systems, and includes a self timer, LED flash, and optional remote control.
