So the Z10000 can shoot 3D in as high a quality as it can 2D. But another piece of technology has fallen into place as the Z10000 has arrived: AVCHD 2.0. This update to the AVCHD standard allows yet higher bitrates, up to 28Mbits/sec, as well as higher progressive frame rates, up to 60p, but most notably it adds support for 3D.
This can be at 720/50p, 720/60p, 1080/60i, 1080/50i, or 1080/24p. Our Z10000 test sample, being a European model, only offered the 1080/24p and 50i options here, but interestingly it also offers a 1080/25p 3D setting, which is encoded as 1080/50i essentially a progressive signal hidden inside an interlaced one. Video is recorded to SD memory cards, as there is no storage built in.
However, there are two SDXC-compatible slots available, and relay recording is supported. So even at the top data rate, over ten hours of continuous recording is possible, with two 64GB SDXC cards.
