Fujifilm FinePix W1
This model is popularly known as the world’s first 3D digital imaging system. This double-lens 3D camera comes with a pair of 10MP image sensors. One plus point about this model, is it allows you to view your 3D images over its screen without the need for 3D glasses.
If you’re planning to view your 3D images over a large screen TV, you would be disappointed. FinePix W1 has no HDMI output for connection to a 3D TV. However, you can save your 3D images to a SD card and insert it into your TV or 3D Blu-ray player if it comes with an SD slot.
If you don’t have a 3D TV or don’t fancy using 3D glasses to view your images, you can purchase the FujiFilm Real 3D Viewer, an 8-inch LCD display which doesn’t require you to wear special glasses to view your 3D images. There’s also a print service which delivers 3D photos to your doorstep, if you don’t mind paying $6.99 per print.
FinePix W1 retails for $999.00 at Amazon.
3D cameras may not have yet achieved the level of sophistication a photography buff would desire. However, if the 3D craze continues to capture the imagination of the public, camera manufacturers will surely work hard to push the limits of what 3D cameras can do.
