Panasonic consumer 3D camera announced

Panasonic has announced it's consumer 3D camera, the SDT750. It won't arrive until October, but it will only cost $1399.95. That's pretty amazing. As reported, it pretty much is a lens unit that attaches to the front of a "standard" camera. The video is recorded side-by-side on a standard HD video frame; one of several ways to encode 3D video, though it does mean the horizontal resolution for each frame is halved.

One question; the interocular distance (distance between the two lenses) appears to be much smaller than their pro camera...
