Guess what digital hardware is no longer made, but worth double now?

3d Cameras!
After Avatar, there was a surge in 3d movie production, 3d tv's and 3d cams.
That all died off pretty fast. There hasn't been a new 3d camera/camcorder introduced in three years.
I have both, a Panny 3d1 and a Sony TD 30v
The panny takes both 3d movies and stills. You can get the stills developed into what looks like those post card 3d's. Video is good, but since it is side by side format, 540lines. I paid $300 for it. If you can find new one,it will be at least $800 and only have japanese info in it.
My Sony shoots 1080p, has great pic, 5.1 surround. I paid $800 new, I think used are going for $1400.
On my Samsung DLP 72" (another tech tossed away), my videos look incredible. Great surround sound, the depth and realism of the 3d is startling.Since I use active glasses, no loss of resolution either.
People are impressed, but when they ask what it takes to get the pics, I have to say "good luck" getting the equipment.
I can also burn the video footage onto blurays and watch like any other.
When my set finally dies, don't know what I'll do. Vizio stopped making 3d sets, everyone else has limited models; even most of the 4k ones don't do it.
There is a company that sells glass free sets in China, but they don't think there is a market for it here.
Also, Direct drop their dedicated 3d channel. At least with Charter, I can get HBO 3d on demand but how long will that last?
Call me one of the last 3d hold outs. I enjoyed watching the Scorpions last night in 3d !

Whew, I was wondering if the Zune was the item that had doubled or tripled in value. That would make the one we own worth at least, well, 3x more than nothing I guess.

Hmmm... i just (last weekend) purchased an OLED 4K HD 3D 58" Smart TV, And i have to say that the 3Dmovies are excellent!

I only have around 10, Avatar being one of them, and the picture is really impressive.

I did notice that our local HMV only had a few 100 3D movies available, last time i looked i am sure that there were more...

I was the one that bought into Betamax when everyone else went VHS!

I was the one that went HD....when everyone else waited for BluRay!

Doh! 3D this time then.....

I had better source some more movies before they all dry up

I have never given 3D filming kit any thought whatsoever, never even considered it... interesting...

I am going to stick to analogue sound from now on...i understand that format very well !!

Hi There Katana,

I did see 'Lion King' at HMV, and MINIONS, but i do not know 'Scorpions' wazzat about?

I enjoyed Avatar, Wolverine and an original 3D Alfred Hitchcock movie called 'Dial M For Murder' .... the other films i have are either 'Planet Earth' or 'Blue Planet' type movies (very good BTW) .... and i have 'Gravity' still to watch... apparently a pants film but great in 3D!

Try to get real 3D, not fake, movies.
Scorpions 3D is the group scorpions in 3D.
Impressive, hard to believe that Shenker, bulging arms ,
Wearing tight leather pants and running
around stage , is 61 years old !
Very good 3D too.
Buy it for $20 or less.
