Introduction

Packed with two lenses and two sensors, the Everio GS-TD1 is JVC's take on a 3D camcorder aimed at consumers. The unit's bulky design is strange, that's for sure, but the amount of controls and options in 3D mode are unprecedented for a 3D camcorder. The TD1 is also capable of capturing top-notch 2D video, and its 3D lens calibration system is entirely automated, which makes it fairly simple to switch between the two modes.

JVC recently announced a price cut for the TD1, which is now listed as $1699 on the web (it was $1999 upon initial release). It's not cheap, but if you're a 3D video enthusiast the GS-TD1 is one of the few options available.
