The Sony HDRTD20VE Silver High Definition 3D Camcorder includes 64GB of internal memory and is able to record on either a Memory Stick or SDHC card if you require more space. Capture your loved ones in Full HD 3D thanks to its two high-quality lenses, sensors and image processors, all of which is packed down into a small body that is easily portable and simple-to-use. Enjoy the results on your BRAVIA or any 3D-compatible TV. Thanks to Sony’s Optical SteadyShot Active Mode you no longer need to worry about shaky pictures when shooting handheld.
