Sony Handycam HDR-TD20VE


Say hello to the 3D camcorder of choice. As you can see in the clip above, the Sony Handycam HDR-TD20VE came out top in our group test: its full HD shooting skills impressed, as did its hefty 64GB of storage space and four hour battery life. Hit play...

3d quality is excellent as is the surround sound

The point of balance should be where the tripod fitment goes.. To watch your movies in 3d you have to reload them onto the camera from the place you stored them

It's a great camcorder with a great picture . 3d is what you would expect

It's a real pain trying to export the footage especially 3 d when working on a Mac and using anything other than Vegas

It is quite lightweight and has excellent stability to stop the image from shaking. Good resolution

I cannot find a way of editing the 3d into a compatible program to create movies ; Limited playability with file types. Consequently I have to play through the camera. Each clip is not in a file so I cannot break apart and load through my playstation
