Good camera-Software needs work
1 January 2014
Summary: Quality camera however there does not seem to be an easy way to create anaglyph files to print and no way to separate stereo pairs for printing for a stereograph viewer.Although I have found some workarounds.
It's a good toy and the only one that could be purchased for its price now

Summary: I bought this camera as a toy for making 3D photos and videos and, of course, I knew about it's pure picture quality in 2D mode. But also I knew that it's only one really available real 3D camera at the present time. So, I'm surely satisfied in my purchase. Image quality is not a matter when you use this device just a 3D goodie.
Good valu for the money. Still researching on how to view on ACER 3D Mon

Summary: Recently I bought a Acer 274H 3D monitor and so I bought this camera. The camera is good. The 3D quality as seen on the camera is good. This monitor does not seem to work with mpo 3D format and so still unsuccessful in viewing the pictures on bigger screen. I will write more if I am able to resolve this problem. Even the 2D picture is very good.
Currently the best choice and value for a digital 3-D camera

Summary: If you want to take digital 3-D pictures (or even videos) for viewing on a 3D TV or 3D computer monitor, this is probably you best choice, both for price and features -- at least until some newer 3-D cameras come on to the market. The 3-D images may also be aligned and output to multiple other formats for printing and viewing using free software (not included) that may be found by searching for "StereoPhoto Maker". It makes taking 3-D images as simple as 2D images.
If you like 3-D you will love this camera even with its quirks
7 February 2013
Summary: I bought this camera to replace one I already had that developed a cracked lens. If you havent done 3-D images before you find this to be a bit of a steep learning curve. Both images and video have quirks on some displays/tv's that you need to adjust for. Making stereo prints is easy using a freeware program. Now the camera... Your first mistake will be covering up a lens with your fingers. Look out for the red warning icon about that.
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.
Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix 3D W3 is an impressive camera - far more so than its predecessor. The rear LCD is nice and large, though framing and capturing a good 3D image can be a bit harder than standard photography, its a good idea to get some basic tutorials for 3D photography of the internet. This camera gives great images and is an affordable 3D camera now.
