The HDR-TD20VE is rare, like the JVC Everio GS-TD1, in that it is built for 3D from the ground up. Instead of requiring any kind of 3D accessory, as with Panasonic’s 3D-capable models such as the HC-X900, the TD20VE can shoot 3D whenever you like – simply flip a switch on the rear. The TD20VE incorporates two identical lens paths leading to two identical CMOS sensors, each 1/3.9in in size with 5.4Mpixels apiece and sporting Exmor R technology. This is Sony’s equivalent of back-side illumination, which gives sensors greater light-sensitivity for improved image quality, particularly in low light.
