The JVC GS-TD1 is one of the first members of a new generation of 'real' 3D camcorders with a dual structure featuring two lenses, two sensors and two image processors along with a glasses-free 3D display. It first went on sale back in March, just a few weeks ahead of its rival the Sony HDR-TD10 which uses the same concept and which we reviewed last week. Given that the two new camcorders are at the same price point, we couldn't resist comparing them. So who comes out on top? The GS-TD1 is very easy on the eye: it's flatter than the Sony TD10, and feels thinner and much less bulky. The case is made of plastic, but it's good quality and feels solid with a ring of brushed aluminum trim. It might seem a little superficial to be so concerned with aesthetics, but when you're paying this much for a camcorder, it's important to get it right. There's a small handle on the side of the lens-hood that you use to slide back the lens cover, while the battery is nice and snug inside the body of the camera and protected by a separate flap, which will keep it safe from the elements. Opening the fold-out screen turns the camera on, and you can turn it off manually using the Power button.
Review: It may not shoot the next Avatar, but the JVC GS-TD1 brings the price of high-quality, 1080i 3D recording down to a family-friendly range.You’ve probably heard so much about 3D that you’re red-green-blue in the face, especially with the introduction of Nintendo’s 3DS and 3D HDTV bubbling along in the background. Getting lost in the hype is JVC’s first Full HD 3D camcorder that’s loaded with 64GB of flash memory and is light years ahead of low-cost 3D movie makers currently available (think Sony Bloggie 3D). Now let’s determine if the GS-TD1 is worth its hefty list price.If you want to impress your friends with a gadget that looks like it beamed down from the “V” mothership with lovely Anna, the black-bodied, silver-accented Everio GS-TD1 is it. In order to accommodate two large lenses with enough separation to create 3D depth, the TD1 is much wider and unusual looking than any other camcorder on the market. When the $1,500 Sony HDR-TD10 arrives with its pair of large lenses in April, there will be company in this category but right now JVC stands alone. It measures 4.1 x 2.7 x 7.4 (WHD, in inches) and tips the scales at 1.4 pounds with the supplied battery.
