The Panasonic HDC-SDT750 3D HD camcorder costs well over a grand, but thankfully there are other options, you know, for those of you who don’t fancy remortgaging the house to film in 3D. The ViewSonic 3DV5 is the latest: it records 3D in 720p and retails for £150.

Obviously we can’t vouch for the quality until we see it with our own two eyes, but the ViewSonic 3DV5 captures MPEG4 3D footage that can either be played back on a 3D TV (via the included HDMI cable) or viewed on the device’s own “autostereoscopic” (i.e. glasses-free) 2.4in screen.

Alternatively, you can shoot the footage (stored on SD card) over to your PC or Mac using a USB cable. USB is also used for charging up the built-in battery.

Footage can also be filmed in 2D, and still images can be snapped. So basically the ViewSonic 3DV5 is a Flip-style camcorder that adds 3D capture to the feature list.
