One manufacturers 3D hardware doesn't work with anothers...
Philip Johnston reports that the Samsung 3D LET-TV doesn't work with the Panasonic SDT750 3D Camcorder. I'm assuming he means he can't just plug one into the other, and I imagine that if he burned a 3D Blu-ray spec disc (assuming he has the software to) he could play it. Of course this is an extra step, and does suggest that it you want to buy one of these camcorders, you want to think about getting a Panasonic 3D TV as well.
