I have bought the Panasonic HDSD900 video camera, with the 3D lens. I want to know if video taken with this camera can be shown on 3D tv's other than Panasonic, or will there be a compatabillity issue

Welcome to HTF, Ivor! While I can't answer your question, I think you might get better results if the subject is something descriptive, and not just your user name. Something like "3D video camera compatible with other brand display?" Hopefully one of the mods will come around and fix it up. Good luck!

I did a quick google on your camcorder and came across the Panasonic site. It said in the fine print that the camcorder was only compatible with Panasonic Viera displays. You have to save the data files to an SD card and plug the card into the display for it to play back. This is even though I suspect that the video is saved in the standard "side-by-side" format, which at least my Mits 3DTV can handle. I wonder if you saved the data files on a USB stick and plugged it into the USB port of a Mits if it would play back?

Thanks for your reply - I have not as yet got a 3D TV as my Sony HD is not quite 12 months old. A friend got me the 3D lens on special offer when he bought his Panasonic 3D TV, which I can use to show any films I take, but I would prefer my own. There are so many 3D TV's available in the market place, at varying prices - I am on a budget. What is Mits? I have not come across this before.

Sorry for the abbreviation, Mits is Mitsubishi, maker of DLP and LED televisions. I got one last year that is 3D capable with DLP-link glasses and a 3D blu-ray player.

Thanks for that - I'll check the 'Mits' out when ready to buy.
