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.

New 3D assist functions include overlay warning displays, with the convergence point shown in green, negative parallax shown in red, and positive parallax shown in yellow, a waveform display that shows the forward/backward relationship between the subject and the convergence plane as a waveform, and left/right/mix monitor selection.
