Panasonic has officially unveiled the world's smallest consumer available 3D stills and video camera with the Panasonic DMC-3D1 release date lined up for later this year.
Utilising a compact twin lens system with folded optics design Panasonic has managed to squeeze high definition 3D photos and video recording capabilities into a shell no bigger than that of a standard two-dimensional compact pocket snapper.
Panasonic DMC-3D1 Features
Sporting a 12-megapixel high sensitivity MOS sensor with noise reduction technology allowing for crisper images, the Panasonic DMC-3D1 plays host to a pair of 25mm wide angle lenses each with 4x optical zoom.
Capable of seamlessly switching between 2D and 3D shooting modes Panasonic's pocketable extra dimensional snapper makes use of 8-megapixels for 3D snaps with Full HD 1080p 3D video shooting running at up to 8 frames-per-second.
Panasonic DMC-3D1 Release Date and Price
Following the camera's official unveiling Panasonic has confirmed that a Panasonic DMC-3D1 UK release date has been pencilled in for this December with pricing for the 3D snapper yet to be unveiled.
