Summary: As the other reviewer said this is exactly the same camera as the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 US model only with a Japanese paper manual. It does however come with a CD with a US manual, drivers, and software. The box is completely in English and looks and is labeled the same as the US model. Currently this item is over $100 cheaper than the US model.
Summary: Very pleased with cost, shipping time and product condition. Everything is in Japanese, but a disc containing the instruction book in English IS included and easy to understand. Camera works great and picture display on the 3DTV is awesome. NOTE: you will need a large memory card (16GB or more) for video. The first card i used was 3GB and it gave me less than 30 minutes of video. There is also the matter of video pausing.
Summary: I like 3D, even have a 3D phone so I wanted 3D materials ,without taking two individual shots, to put on it to show it off. I'd only recommend it to 3D enthusiast. I would have liked it more if there was an option for Side-by-side photo save (Discontinued product) 3D is a dying market more or less. It one of those things that gets popular fast and dies to almost nothing but a few movies for a few decades .
Excerpt: This camera is an excellent gift idea for anyone who wants images in 3d or 2d or both. You need to make sure your t.v. or computer is 3d compatible. also I do not think that there is paper to print out your 3D images, you have to submit them to a company that does.
Pros: Dual 2d 3d modes, Excellent video, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Real 3d, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Cons: Eyes need to adjust to 3d, Short Battery Life
Summary: I work in the visual effects industry and specialize in making the movies 3d (stereographic). I bought this camera because while I work with stereo footage all day, I thought it would be fun to play with footage I shot myself. And it is! This is a really nice way to jump into stereographic photography. The results are fun to flip through and turn a lot of heads at parties/etc.
Summary: The camera takes good 3D pictures from a range of 3 to 100 feet. They are displayed on the screen on the back in full 3D without glasses and they look great there. The camera has many settings, but I've only used auto, so far. I haven't tried video. The printed manuals were in languages other than English. The English version was available on the CD-ROM. Also on the CD-ROM was some bad photo management software.
Summary: Pictures from the camera in 2-D are very disappointing, but those in 3-d, both the actual 3-D seen on the camera screen, the MPO files separated and put into anaglyph mode with a great free program like stphmkre, and the jpgs created at the same time are really very nice and far better than I had expected... in clarity, sharpness, detail, and color. I like the camera better than I had thought I would.
Tips for better image quality for those who complained about it
2 January 2011
Summary: I just had a few tips for those who complained about image quality. If you use the camera set to "AUTO (red camera icon on wheel) you will be getting settings not optimized for the best quality. You will get ISO 800 for all pics which is very grainy not to mention smudgy in detail and you will get a lower quality setting (among other things).
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.
