Panasonic HDC-Z10000 video review



Read the full Panasonic HDC-Z10000 review

Lots of people remain sceptical about 3D, including many of us here at TrustedReviews. But 3D movies are now arriving in torrents (probably almost literally...), and if you're in any way serious about your videomaking, you have probably thought more than twice about trying the format out. Unfortunately, you would likely have felt stuck between a rock and a high place. Although JVC's Everio GS-TD1 has made a good stab at an enthusiast's 3D camcorder, costing around £1,500, Panasonic's use of an attachment has limited the flexibility of its 3D-capable consumer models, such as the HDC-TM900. Up until now, if you wanted something more serious, you would need to shell out over £7,000. Well, not anymore. Panasonic's £3,000 HDC-Z10000 is still firmly in the professional price range, but it packs in a surprising amount of features for the money.

I have a problem with the audio dropping off for the last second of 4 mb clips (22 minutes). Is this a design bug, a firmware issue or just something wrong with my Z10000?

Please clarify if this model works in PAL. If not, is there a separate version?

I work in Europe with NTSC (60fps) camera. It's ok, no problems

I want to use use this NTSC (60fps) camera in Europe as well. How do I convert it to PAL? Sony representative told me to speed up the NTSC footage by 4% to match it to PAL. What are reasonable priced 3D software for Premiere or After Effects. Please email me since I am not part of this forum and I might miss your response. Thank you

I have the same question about the 3D Panasonic HDC-Z10000. Did you find anything out as to how can I use the NTSC model to make 3D PAL side by side 3D videos? A Sony representative told me to speed up the NTSC footage by 4% to match it to PAL. Please get back to me if you know something. Thanks Dimitris

Why to convert video to PAL?
Use project in NTSC . Futages are all in 60p.
The only problem are old lamps (In Europe old bulbs are on 50hz).
For avoid strobe you will need to set camera to 100fps. But on 100fps you will need additional light :(
Fortunately old bulbs are rare now, and hope will be changed by leds soon

THANK YOU for responding. Also what 3D software do you use? Reasonable priced I hope.
Thanks again
