Panasonic HDC-Z10000 First Impressions Camcorder Review

The HDC-Z10000 is a 3D camcorder targeted at professionals and serious amateurs.



The HDC-Z10000 is a dual-lens 3D camcorder from Panasonic that is geared towards professionals, students, or video enthusiasts who are looking for a strong HD camcorder that has the capability of recording 3D video. The camcorder's $3500 price tag is high, but it is certainly a reasonable cost for a pro-level camcorder that is loaded with controls, features, and what is likely to be impressive video performance. We got a chance to spend some time with the Z10000 at the 2011 Photo Plus Expo in New York City, and, while certain design flaws on the camcorder did bug us, we are excited about its potential as a pro-level 3D or 2D camcorder.
