FUJIFILM FinePix Real 3D W1 - world's first 3D camera - price Rs. 39,999
6 July 2010
Excerpt: FUJIFILM owns the leadership in building the world's first 3D digital camera 'Finepix Real 3D W1' with two stereoscopic lenses (left and right) and two 10MP image sensors. It lets the user to shoot both 2D and 3D images/videos and view them on the 2.8-inch LCD screen without the use of 3D goggles.
Conclusion: Fujifilm should certainly be applauded for being the first to take the brave leap into 3D camera technology but that said, it has proven quite a big leap that may not have been entirely cleared on this initial attempt but we certainly look forward to what the future may bring.
Summary: We can't say how good the separate viewer is because Fujifilm didn't have one to send to us, but, judging by the images on the FinePix Real 3D W1's screen, when the 3D mode works, it works well.
Pros: Visually striking 3D effect when it works; easy to use; not that expensive given that it's a twin-lens camera.
Cons: Bulky and awkward; 3D mode needs specific conditions to work; expensive peripherals.
Summary: There’s no question that the W1 makes light work of taking digital 3D images and it is far easier to handle and operate than a twin-camera rig.
The novice can snap away without noticing any significant difference between shooting 3D or 2D images apart from when they look at the results.
Review: Fujifilm 3D Digital Camera (FinePix Real 3D W1)

Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 camera does take nice pictures. It is a solid standalone 10 megapixel camera with a cool additional feature, the fact that it can shoot in 3D. But shooting in 3D feels more like a gimmick rather than a necessity at this point.
Excerpt: With two lenses and two sensors, the Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W1 is rather inevitably a large camera, measuring 123.6 (W) x 68 (H) x 25.6 (D) mm and weighing 260g, so its best stored safely away inside a small camera bag.
Conclusion: For those who are already addicted to 3D content creation, be it video or still, the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 is a dream come true. It takes a lot of the hassle out of 3D image creation, but doesn’t limit you to auto-only features.
Pros: Easy to create 3D content, creative controls for 2D and 3D shooting modes
Cons: Size, price, current 3D format sharing barriers, no supplied software solution, poor menus
