Reviews and Problems with Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1

Great camera, but...
10 April 2011
Summary: The camera feels good to hold, and it works beautifully. The on-off bar across front stays closed nicely until you intentionally pull it down yourself to start shooting. (No accidental opening!) The controls and settings are pretty intuitive and easy to work. Battery life is very long! I am especially pleased that there isn't much of a noticeable flash lag. You take a flash picture, and it's the picture you want -- even moderate action shots, such as with pets or kids.

Summary: This camera definitely has the WOW factor. Image quality is just okay, but the 3D functionality makes the W3 a must-have toy for die hard 3D fans who can't wait for the kinks to be ironed out in the next generation. The W3 is sturdy and well built. My cat knocked the camera off a table onto a hardwood floor, and despite the loud bang on the floor I could not find even a scratch on the camera or 3D display. Phew!
Summary: Camera happy, happy to master. Unfortunately, the included software does not allow you to work with 3d photos and video footage. Information support site is also not satisfactory. It is also not solved the problem with printing 3D pictures. Nothing concrete about it does not say, third-party software are hard to find.
Summary: Pictures are very cool. One needs to practice shooting methods. he IPAD 2 coming out next month will be able to use as viewer. Early technology like this is fun to learn. Only complaint is battery doesn`t last as long as it should.
Summary: Ok, so I got this camera for a trip to NYNY at Christmas time. On the trip I learned quite a few things about it. First, if you compose the right shot, the pictures can look amazing ! That being said, here are some considerations: You are really limited to horizontal shots, verticals don't show the 3D as well.
Summary: The NP-50 battery promoted to go with the W1 is for the W3 NOT the W1. Why Amazon is listing the NP-50 instead of the proper NP-95 beats me. The NP-50 WILL NOT fit the w1 model, will NOT work, NO WAY... Buyer beware...
Unique Item, Great Technology, Lousy Software and unclear what to do with photos

Summary: I got this item from a different seller. This is a totally unique item, and features rather impressive technology. It has two digital camera that allow for the creation of 3D pictures. It has a rather amazing 3D screen. This is great for photos with a unique "gee wiz" novelty factor. It also functions fine as a conventional digital camera, although for 5 times the price. It is still half the price of a camera with a good zoom lens. It is about the size and shape.
Summary: At the moment this camera is sui generis, so it's hard to critique, as there's little to compare it to in features and price. It has some odd quirks, as mentioned before, but it does work as advertised, it makes real digital 3D photos, and displays them on its back screen for viewing without glasses. It's really more for either 3D enthusiasts, or someone who hopes to become one. It does require experimentation to get the hang of taking good shots.
Summary: Pros: - Being able to quickly and easily take 3D digital photos without having to use 2 separate cameras. - Creates JPG and MPO output files which can be viewed in a variety of stereo modes using StereoPhoto Maker from: stereo.jpn.org/eng. I have successfully gotten this to work with the JVC GD-463D10 3D LCD TV. - Creates 640x480 stereo movies which works with StereoMovie Maker also from the above web site.
Summary: You have to give Fuji credit for thinking way outside the box on this one, and going against the tide of history. 3D is one of those technologies that seem to blossom for a few years every now and then and then sink back into obscurity. So if you like the technology and want to create your own 3D images, jump on this little camera while it is still available. If you wait for version 2.0 it may never come.
