Additional Information

The AG-3DP1 is a twin-lens 3D P2 HD shoulder-mount camcorder that records 10-bit; 4:2:2 independent-frame; full 1920 x 1080 resolution images in AVC-Intra. The 3DP1 incorporates two 1/3; full-HD 2.2 megapixel 3-MOS 3-chip imagers with enhanced sensitivity and a 20-bit Digital Signal Processor to acquire production quality; native 1920 x 1080 images for left and right eye.

The HD twin-lens system with 17x zooming was developed exclusively for the 3DP1. With its high-precision assembly; no pre-shooting adjustment of the optical axis or angle of view is required. Focus; zoom and iris adjustments are synchronized accurately for the left and right lenses. The camcorder's 58mm inter-axial distance allows a broad shooting rage of approx. 15 to 100 feet. It boasts low chroma aberration and high resolution; and delivers superb color reproduction; detailed nuances and crisp 3D images even in dark scenes; with minimal flare and ghosting.

Two pairs of 2.2-megapixel 1/3-type 3MOS sensors are mounted left and right; each employing full-pixel HD resolution to produce precisely synchronized full HD 3D images. Ultra Luminance Technology (U.L.T.) enables these image sensors to attain high-sensitivity; high-quality images; and a high-performance 20-bit Digital Signal Processor handles image rendering processes with exceptional precision. Drawing on technologies developed for the VariCam; the 3DP1 is equipped with advanced gamma functions that address six different shooting scenarios; including two Cine-Like Gammas for richer gradation.

The 3DP1 offers integrated features that eliminate that need for external equipment; such as a 3.2-inch LCD screen that provides the option to switch from Left; Right; or overlay image display for reviewing depth information; and stereoscopic adjustment controls for automatically adjusting the convergence point for immediate 3D capture. In addition to a zoom ring; focus ring and iris ring that approach the manual control levels of interchangeable lenses; the 3DP1 has an isolated convergence dial. By changing the convergence angle of the twin lenses; the convergence point can be adjusted forward or backward to control leaping effects and depth. Three modes (near/normal/extra) maximize the twin-lens zooming capability for effective 3D shooting over diverse viewing angles.

The 3DP1 can record for up to 80 minutes (each) on dual 64GB P2 cards in AVC-Intra 100 1080/24pN. Pro interfaces such as dual HD-SDI outs; HDMI (3D compatible) out; and two XLR connectors are also included. The camera offers genlock and time code inputs for multi-camera operation. It is also equipped with a remote terminal for focus iris; zoom; REC start/stop and convergence point.

Additionally; all the familiar benefits of a fast; file-based P2 HD workflow are included; such as instant recording startup; clip thumbnail view for immediate access to video content on all cards; and a host of time-saving recording modes including continuous and interval recording.

The 3DP1 records in AVC-Intra 100/50; and is 50Hz/60Hz switchable; an added benefit to producers with global clients. In AVC-Intra 100/50; it records in 1080 at 59.94i; 29.97pN; 23.98pN; 50i and 25pN; and in 720p at 59.94p; 50p; 29;97pN; 23.98pN and 25pN. For creative flexibility; the 3DP1 has variable frame rate recording for creating fast and slow motion effects. In 720p mode; a user can choose from 20 variable frame steps between 12 and 60 frames per second.
