The new FinePix Real 3D W3 features twin 3X optical zoom 35-105mm equivalent lenses with two 10-megapixel (MP) image sensors to capture stereoscopic images as well as 3D video.
The camera includes an HDMI v1.4 port for connection to a 3D-capable television and will capture video in 720p (1280×720-pixel) resolution. It doesn’t appear as though the camera can handle true 1080p (1920×1080-pixel) 3D capture yet.
FujiFilm has also included a large 3.5-inch LCD panel on the back with 1.15MP resolution, one of the highest so far on a consumer-grade camera. The screen is also capable of showing captured 3D videos in 3D without the need for special glasses. It also features a new processor that merges detail from both the left and right image sensors into a single 3D image.
The camera has some clever modes such as telephoto/wideangle simultaneous shooting – which means you can grab a wideangle shot and a telephoto zoom shot of the same scene at the same time. The camera also supports other split feature photography, giving you the ability to grab different shots of the same scene.
The company says the camera is available now from retailers for $AUD599.
