People see in 3D because they have two eyes, each relaying a slightly different perspective to the brain, which then combines the two images to create a sense of depth. Traditional cameras and camcorders can never capture 3D because they have only one lens.

 Today, things have changed. The latest crop of 3D camcorders can record depth information because they have two lenses, which capture a separate data stream for each eye. The method used by 3D displays to present the separate data stream to each eye can vary, but the brain uses the differences between each image to decode depth in the same way it does in the real world. Innovative technology always makes a great gift idea, so let’s take a look at some of the best 3D camcorders on the market today.
