Summary: Don't buy this camera as your primary or the only camera - this is a special occasion (3D) only camera. This camera has been out for about 3.5 years, so it's not up-to-date with modern technologies. But it went on gold box deal, so I bought one as a novelty. GOOD: Real 3D!
Summary: I wish the camera image quality was at least on par with current point and shoots .. but alas that's not the case. Pros: - Good spatial separation between the lens resulting in good 3D. - Good auto parallax - Good screen to review 3D on without glasses. Cons: -Really poor image noise quality.
Summary: I'm a friend of short and crisp information, so here it goes: Pro: ++ Excellent 3D effect! ++ 3D display works well (and can be turned to 2D) + Stores 3D images as MPO and 2D JPG (can be set to store only MPO or only JPG) + Allows setting of ISO, aperture, exposure time + Offers predefined image...
Summary: For 3D buffs out there who have been dying for a digital answer to the Stereo Realist camera of the 60's, this is your answer. Download the freeware StereoPhoto Maker by Suto & Sykes (just search for it online), and you can split .MPO files (the native file type of 3D photos) into left and right...
Summary: The Fuji W3 is an interesting, fun gadget that really doesn't give you usable results compared to other cameras in this price range. The images are very low resolution, and if it wasn't for the 3D effect, you'd be pretty disappointed.
Outstanding 3D and Audio but has bad pixels when recording video.

Summary: First, the great things about this camera not already mentioned in other reviews. The audio quality when recording video is amazing. Two forward aiming mikes record and save uncompressed PCM 48khz stereo regardless of the video resolution.
Summary: I think this is a fun product, and I still enjoy it, but I think the price needs to drop another $200 to make it worth it. There are a few settings that I haven't fully played around with yet, and once I master them, I can probably improve the photos a bit.
Pros: Unlike other cameras, this one can do 3D, so that's a big plus. It's relativly easy to use, and I really like the lense cover that functions as an on-off switch. It's pretty sturdy, and seems to be built with quality materials. The big bonus for this camera is the "fun" aspect of it. I brought it...
Cons: The 3D still picture quality has been continuously disappointing when compared to a 2D photo. Close-up (macro) photos don't resolve well on-screen. Video quality is very low for supposed hi-def 720p. Doesn't do well in low-light or fast moving subjects. Doesn't do well closer than 3 feet.
