It does appear after all to be dual sensor, which is good. It also makes sense as for Panasonic (or any other camera manufacturer) to take two cameras and repackage them in a single enclosure with shared control and timing circuitry would be fairly straight forward. Shame they don't also give it a stereoscopic viewfinder finder (or pair of finders), again I would have thought this would be pretty easy to do.

I don't think, the price is a problem. If for professional use it is actually cheap compared to the other options around. Just consider all the rigs, two cameras, the stuff you need to sync two cameras etc.
If you use it for example for documentaries, it will not be more expensive than a bigger pro-camera at the moment. Hopefully the quality is sufficent. But maybe there is an option to connect the NanoFlash (or two??).
It would be nice to have at least an anaglyph output on the viewfinder/screen, to monitor it in 3D while shooting. Otherwise you still have to rely on expensive external 3D-monitors or a complicated set-up with laptop and lots of cables or the stereobrain set-up.

Best regards,

I like Alisters suggestion of a twin stereoscopic viewfinder. That would make the most sense and also the most practical.

Here's another 3d-Video cam I found by chance. Produced by 3d-One, a dutch-german startup.

lol: *First

*) First full HD, dual lens pro camcorder with memorycards

This means I can be the **first as well.

3D-one has already a full-HD stereoscopic camera (cp31) on sale now with removable harddisk and 2 HDMI connections (up to 4:4:4, but I've heard 4:2:2 is also possible: maybe interesting for the NanoFlash-3D?). They have been developing 3D-camcorders since 2005 for ESA (European Space Agency), so they were already there before the 'new hype' started.

I saw some footage yesterday: it looks real good. It wasn't a 'fancy film with dramatic 3D effects', but documentairy shot footage of the preperations of the laugh of a russion rocket to the ISS. It looked very natural. (And no headache: few months ago a watched some demofootage on a screen with 'shutters': my head exploded. But I've learned it's not only the camera, but also the knowledge about the limits of stereoscopic film/animation)

**)First full HD, dual lens with memorycards and delevered in the color green only and a solar panel on top.
