Sony HDR-TD20 review


This is a great 3D camcorder with lots of connectivity and a magnificent touchscreen monitor

The HDR-TD20VE is perfect if you’re an enthusiast who wants to dabble in 3D film-making. If you’re strictly 2D, we think the Sony HDR-CX730E is a better option, but there’s no doubting the HDR-TD20VE is well-equipped, high quality and above all fun...
