Sony presents professional 3D camera that shoots video at 240fps


Sony seems to put a lot of emphasis on 3D, as far as the future direction of their TV and optical media divisions is concerned. The company has now shown a first picture of a powerful 3D camera for professional use [JP] that will be presented to the general public during next week’s CEATEC 2009 electronics exhibition in Japan.

Details are scarce at this point, but the CMOS camera will have two lenses and be able to shoot video at up to 240fps. Sony says this will come in especially handy when it comes to recording sports event. The camera will be sized at 240x200x480mm, weigh 18kg and feature a 3.5-inch viewfinder.
