Panasonic has just announced the AG-3DP1, a new camcorder designed for shooting movies in 3D. The shoulder-mounted camcorder packs a 3D twin-lens, and is designed for users planning to shoot 3D tech gadgets of live events, sports, documentaries and independent films. The AG-3DP1 packs 2 1/3″ full-HD 2.2 megapixel 3-MOS images with enhanced sensitivity, a 20-bit Digital Signal Processor for generating full production quality, native 1920 x 1080 resolution images. The camera also captures 3D footage directly through the dual-lens, without the need for any external equipment or post processing – it is possible to just shoot and cut footage from the camera to make a 3D movie. With functions like variable frame rate to create fast and slow motion effects, users can get creative with the camera itself. The lenses of these tech gadgets can zoom up to 17x and the camera records up to 80 minutes of footage on dual 64GB P2 cards in AVC-Intra 100 1080/24pN and a 3.2″ LCD display for previewing recorded footage rounds things off. No prices have been announced but we can expect to see the 3DP1 on sale in autumn this year. With 3D cameras becoming more accessible to everybody – you can expect a lot more 3D movies to start popping up in the future, especially in the indie movie scene.

Apogee rolls out Duet 2 pro audio interface for Macs

1 Apr

Recently drop $500 on an Apogee Duet audio interface for your Mac electronic gadgets after pondering one for all these years? Then we’re afraid we’ve got a bit of bad news for you, as the company has now finally rolled out a successor to the highly-desirable device. Apparently redesigned from the ground up, the new Duet 2 expectedly ditches FireWire in favor of USB, and packs some “completely redesigned” mic preamps and converters, along with two inputs and four outputs, a pair of configurable touch pads, and even an all new OLED display that replaces the basic LED meters on the original. Of course, the one thing that stays the same is the professional-level price — look for this one to set you back $595 when it’s available next month.
