In our time checking out the HDC-SDT750, it was clear that the camcorder was capable of capturing excellent 3D images. The recording process for capturing these images wasn't easy, however, and the camcorder definitely has a much higher learning curve than most consumer models we've seen before. The lack of manual controls and settings in 3D mode may upset some users, but it does give you the chance to focus on the basics of strong 3D recording-proper calibration, lots of light, and a focal range of roughly 1.2 - 4m. If you fail to record with these directives, your 3D footage will probably be disappointing.
As a 2D camcorder, we are confident in the HDC-SDT750's capabilities, as it is essentially the same model as the Panasonic HDC-TM700, which has been #1 on our ratings page ever since we reviewed it early this year. In addition to the 3D recording capability, Panasonic also improved the noise reduction on the HDC-SDT750 and added a new image stabilisation system called Hybrid OIS. We'll have to wait until we get the SDT750 into our labs before we can say if either of these new features make much of a difference, but, according to Panasonic, the new camcorder should have 40% less noise in low light situations than previous models.

Since 1979, the study found, the overdose death rate has been exponentially climbing, even as the deadly drugs of choice have changed.
