The 3D is what really sets this camcorder apart from others in the market. The 3D is very good on the LCD, good enough to appreciate the depth even on the 3.2-inch screen. Though the zoom is not very smooth when the 3D is on, the images are clear and definitely of HD quality. Since the video is being recorded in HD, and that too 3D, it is advisable that you use an SD card with a fast write speed. We used a SanDisk Extreme 32 GB card of Speed Class 10 to make sure we didn’t have any issues—we ran into file errors with older cards of slower speeds.
