Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W3 camera launched (with video)
Watch your pics back without specs on peeper's in-built 3D screen.
Fujifilm has just pulled the wrappers off its new Finepix Real 3D W3 camera. The new compact snapper is the successor to last year’s awesome Finepix 3D W1, and crams in some seriously smart changes that are set to make three dimensional photography more popular than Lady Gaga’s tedious video output.
Rocking an auto 3D mode, the Finepix Real 3D W3 packs in two 10 megapixel CCD sensors, as well as dual lenses for taking 3D snaps. These can then be watched back on the screen minus silly specs, or pumped to your 3D TV via the HDMI output.
What really sets this newbie apart from its older bro, though, are its 3D HD video clips. Sure, they’re only in 720p, but unless you want to stump up the best part of a grand for Panasonic’s Full HD 3D shooter, this is the way to go.
The dual sensors and lenses also mean you can take two different 2D shots simultaneously, tweaking white balance and ISO for either shot to see which works best. The Finepix Real 3D W3 is due to land at the end of September for a not-too-shabby £399.
