Exciting new Sony Products for 2011

Talked to SONY today about their new Handycam™ Camcorders that will be released in 2011 and man do they have some awesome features never seen before.

First is SONY's exclusive 3D Handycam®, SONY HDR-TD10. The HDR-TD10 Handycam® camcorder utilizes two Full HD sensors for capturing true 1920x1080 3D video delivering an immersive 3D experience, as well as Full HD 2D video. View 3D and 2D videos directly on its generous 3.5" Xtra Fine LCD™ display–no special glasses required. Watch all 3D video in 2D as well. Also equipped with 64GB embedded Flash memory, you can record and store up to 25 hours of 2D high-definition video footage (HD LP mode), or up to 5 hours of high-definition 3D video. It will be available around April and at the $1500.00 price range
Here is footage from CES that shows the new camera:

Second is SONY's 3D Bloggie video camera. It is a small point of view camera that will record 3D and in 2D as well. It can record up to 4hrs of 2D HD videos, 5 megapixel still images. 3D viewing on 2.4" LCD (no need for 3D glasses), 1920 x 1080p MP4 HD video, and flip out USB arm. This camera is meant to share over the web and therefore the integrated software within the camera allows for easy upload to YouTube™. YouTube™ will actually allow for 3D uploads and will convert it to the red and blue footage that you would then just need the cheap red and blue glasses ($4) to view through YouTube and to share with the rest of the world! This camera will be available in April at the $300 price range.
Here is a video clip from CES on this camera:

Now on to the other HD Handycams®. Here are the new features that will be in some of the 2011 Sony HD Handycams®:
