NAB News-Panasonic 3D conceptual camcorder

Categories: Miscellaneous 4 Comments

pana-3dBlayne Murphy, Panasonic “Each component of Panasonic’s innovative 3D Full HD production system has unique features. The twin-lens P2 camera recorder enables the capturing of natural and high-quality live 3D images. Thanks to the non-mechanical solid-state construction of the P2 system, the camera recorder will be compact enough to allow more flexible 3D shooting, thereby maximizing the creativity of the filmmakers by eliminating the stress factor from the use of the equipment.”

Just when I thought Panasonic camcorders could not get any uglier, the worst bit is the 4:3 LCD which has propagated itself along a great line of recent Panasonic camcorders…they really need to address this as we are living in a 16:9 world now, I have not filmed 4:3 for over 2 years now !

The 3D camcorder above thank goodness is conceptual so if they want my advice…NO MORE SQUARE BOX CAMCORDERS PLEASE WITH 4:3 LCDs !!!

Crumple Pop is one of those strange programs that comes along and once you get your head around what the hell it’s trying to tell you…you buy it.

I was looking for  something a wee bit grungy for my tum tabs in Final Cut Pro 6 for the videos on HD Warrior reviews and now I have it, which in my case really fits the bill…gaffer tape with ink pen…I love it.  Pre NAB special of $35 (Will be $65)
