Double Full HD 3D Consumer camcorder
The Sony Handycam HDR-TD30V utilizes two Full HD sensors to capture true 1920x1080 3D video for a more immersive 3D experience. Most 3D cameras achieve the 3D affect by splitting a 1920x1080 signal in to two 960x540 channels in order to squeeze them onto one sensor, thereby limiting resolution on the final output.
3D Ready 3.5" Xtra Fine LCD display (1229K)
The LCD is also 3D ready, enabling you to view your 3D content directly on the camera's LCD without the need for 3D glasses. The display delivers a more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare.
1920x1080 Full HD 24p/60p w/20.4MP Exmor R CMOS Sensors
Capturing 1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you record your memories in exceptional Full High Definition quality. Capable of 60p recording and playback via HDMI and compatible HDTV. If you're looking for a film-like quality look to your video, 24p recording is available for you. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

Easily switch between 2D/3D with dedicated switch
A dedicated switch allows for easy switching from recording 2D to 3D, whether you're recording or playing back video. In 3D mode, only 3D content will be displayed for playback, however when in 2D mode, all content will be displayed and played back in 2D. This allows you to record all your video in 3D and choose later whether or not you want to playback in 2D or 3D.
