Panasonic will next week unveil a camcorder for consumers that is capable of recording images in 3D.
The camcorder, details of which are not yet available, will be shown at a Tokyo news conference scheduled for July 28, the company said Wednesday. It will be the first 3D-capable camcorder for the consumer market from a major manufacturer.
Panasonic and other major consumer electronics makers have been pushing 3D televisions in the last few months as the first professional 3D content begins to appear on Blu-ray Disc and via television networks.

The 3D camera will be Panasonic’s second after it launched a professional model earlier this year.
