Sony Show New 3D Camera and 35mm Digital Model

Posted on Sep 10, 2010 by Alex Fice

IBC2010 – This morning Sony showed a couple of prototypes or concepts in their press conference at IBC2010. The first was a 3D camera with it’s twin optics seemingly grafted on to the front of an XDCAM body. The optics look similar to the new Panasonic 3D camcorder but aren’t derived from the same source. Not much more information was forthcoming from Sony as to when this will be a product or indeed what recording systems it will have but for Sony it is a foothold in this documentary 3D market that Panasonic has seeded with their 3D camcorder which is now shipping.

Also shown as a prototype/concept was a digital camera with a 35mm sized sensor (not the sensor from the f35), first seen at this year’s NAB. The camera is a short format size but with a PL mount for cine lenses. Again no more information was forthcoming like the recording system, price or compression details but, again, the product gives Sony a camera to compete with products like RED’s Scarlet and Panasonic’s AF101 which is due to be shipped in the last quarter of the year.
