Sony has been working hard on its 3D technology; these include the range of 3-D TVs that they are launching later this year and their video cameras used in the movie industry on blockbusters like Avatar. The Japanese consumer electronics maker has now admitted that they are working on 3D video cameras for the home user.
Once Sony have finished they will completely dominate 3D technology – especially when they offer a 3D firmware upgrade for the PS3. How cool will it be to know that you can create your own digital content, then you can view it on your new Sony 3DTV.
PC World explains that Sony is keeping the details of the consumer 3D camcorder secret, but it does show that this new technology is seen as the next big thing. The 3D camera will be the only thing missing in Sony’s lineup, so filling this gap in the market has been expected for some time now.
Panasonic and FujiFilm do not want Sony to have it their own way, the former is already working on their own version – while the latter already has the FinePix Real 3D W1 on sale. Sony will now have to play catch-up.
