These new 3D camcorders make it easy for professionals and hobbyists to add more depth and detail, and capture nuances of complex scenes such as crowds, rain, leaves, snow, reflections, rain, etc, like never before. As 3D video capturing is a rather new technology here are some information that will help you make a better decision before spending your money on an expensive piece of equipment. The first thing you need to decide is where you're going to watch the video most often. If you are planning to upload the video and watch it online, look for a camcorder that offers one-touch uploading and one that creates anaglyphic videos. These can be viewed with cheap red/cyan glasses to get the 3D effect. These camcorders are generally less expensive. Most would prefer watching it on a fully compatible 3D HDTV. Most camcorders fall under this category anyway and there are also more costly. These camcorders usually record to an external memory where you can just insert directly to your TV's card slot. It is also a wise option to invest in a good tripod as the 3D camcorder's image stabilization might not be good enough to keep your videos steady for headache free viewing. As with non-3D HD camcorders, lighting conditions and zoom quality will quickly reveal the limits and strengths of the camcorder's lenses. All 3D video cameras use the same basic concept of stereoscopic lenses . And because of the polarity involved in creating a stereoscopic image most consumer 3D camcorders work best in well-lit situations.
