Panasonic showcases two prototype 3D camera lenses, announces 3D camcorder HDC-Z10000

We’re here in Berlin, covering the IFA 2011 , Panasonic and things started by showing a camera concept, with its first dual-lens capable of shooting stills and video in 3D. Unfortunately, the press release of the company is light on technical information, but it shows the system is built on two glasses of 4x with thin, folded optical. I hope we see this thing in person, while we are in town and learn a little more. In similar news, the company also announced the HDC-Z10000 (pictured), his first camcorder 2D / 3D with an integrated dual-lens. The camcorder records 1080p / 1080i AVCHD video 3D is a dual CMOS sensors with a combined resolution of 13.1MP and eye-less than 3.5 inch LCD. It is also capable of 3D macros as close as 17.8 inches – a record for camcorders 3D dual purpose, according to Panasonic. As the company has been known to do, however, it is now out to reveal details on price or availability, so it looks like we will have to save for a rainy day. Full PR after the break.
