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.
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!
Exactly the same camera as the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 US model without paper manual in english
Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 June 2011
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.
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.
Tips for better image quality for those who complained about it
24 May 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.
Summary: I must say that I love this camera. I followed the W1 when it first came out and was waiting for it to be offered direct to the U.S. and not be an imported item from Japan. From what I have read the improvements are nice (but not significant - at least for what I have used).
