Having just arrived two days ago the Sony HXR-NX3D1 is a cracking hand held 3D camcorder with many professional features. I am not the biggest 3D fan in the world but I am looking at this camcorder from a business point of view.

This is almost an NX70 that has been squished, a second lens added and the viewfinder removed. It has a sexy 3D LCD which works remarkably well.

I filmed my dog outside the garden for a bit of fun and she brings me her plastic bone right up to the front of the camera. I showed the footage with glasses dually adorned to my mother and daughter in law and they both shrieked when the dogs head looks like it’s coming out of the 3D telly…fantastic !

We will be filming footage at the Edinburgh fringe next week which should be fun but I need a dry day for filming as unlike the NX70 the Sony 3D is not rainproof.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Very interested to hear if this has advanced features like waveform monitor, zebra controls, etc. I have been playing with the TD10 ($1499) and want to know if this is worth double the money.
