Post Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 3D Camera is Now Available

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 3D camera is what is considered as the first actual alternative in the form of a portable digital camera of the very popular among 3D users Fujifilm Real 3D W1/W3 compact digital cameras is now available on the market and you can get it for $499 USD. The Lumix DMC-3D1 camera comes equipped with dual 12-megapixel sensors capable of capturing stereo 3D photos with a maximum resolution of 3264√?2448 (8 Megapixels with 4:3 aspect) or 3264√?1840 (6 Megapixels with 16:9 aspect ratio) as well as 3D video with Full HD 1920√?1080 resolution (Side by Side with half horizontal resolution, 60i for the NTSC model and 50i for the PAL model). The camera also comes with 4x optical zoom, optical stabilization system, 3.5-inch touchscreen display that is unfortunately not autostereoscopic 3D capable, but there is a HDMI 1.4 output for direct connection to a 3D-capable display.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 3D camera's interaxial distance should be very close to 3 centimeters or around 1.2 inches based on the officially announced camera size and the photos of the device, but the exact distance between the two lenses of the camera still hasn't been officially announced. This is about half of the interaxial distance that the Fujifilm 3D cameras have, meaning that the Panasonic's product should be more suitable for closer photography in 3D mode. The fact that the Lumix DMC-3D1 does not feature an autostereoscopic 3D display that can be used for direct previewing of the images and video you've shot in 3D mode is a serious drawback in the useability of the device in stereo 3D mode as well. If you were so eager to get one of these and try it out, you are welcome to confirm the exact interaxial distance as well as to share your feedback from the product and even some sample 3D photos and 3D videos you have recorded‚?¶
