Sony Reveals New 3D High-Definition Camcorders

Like 3D movies? Sony will soon give consumers the chance to shoot 3D films instead of just watching them. Sony revealed a fleet of new camcorders at CES yesterday, including two with three-dimensional video capture.

At $1500, the Sony HDR-TD10 3D High-Definition Flash Memory Handycam Camcorder is the more impressive of the two. The camcorder features two lenses and two image sensors, allowing users to capture both 2D and 3D video. Users can view their video on 3D HDTVs with glasses or toss the glasses and instead watch the video on the camera’s 3.5-inch LCD screen. Both lenses deliver a 10x zoom, optically stabilized even in 3D mode, and the camera will come with 64GB of internal flash memory.

Sony Cuts Prices of Google TV, and Not for Black Friday

Just one month after its launch, Google TV is rumored to be facing issues of the not-selling-so-well type. 

Sony, which makes the Google TV hardware, slashed prices 25% over the holiday weekend, and while some insiders claim it’s a Black Friday deal, others point to sales trouble as the reason for the discount.

“This doesn’t smell like a Black Friday sort of deal,” tech blog TechCrunch posted on Saturday. “The price cut is everywhere from Best Buy to even the unit’s product page.”

Sony cut the price for its 46-inch Google TV from $1,200 to $1,000. Its 40-inch set sold for $898, down from $1000. Sony has never cut prices on a new product, to New York Post reports.
