The Fujifilm 3D W3 camera exceeds all my expectations!
20 October 2013
Summary: During the 3-D movie boom of the nineteen fifties, 3-D cameras became very popular with the public and I'm not sure why that hasn't happened again during the current 3-D movie boom, because the 3-D technology is much better today. Perhaps, it's because 3-D TV sets have not caught on and the best way to view 3-D photos and watch 3-D video is on a big screen 3-D TV in high definition.
Summary: This is clearly the best consumer 3D digital camera available today. No other 3D camera comes close to being as feature rich and as easy to use as this camera in this price range. Before I get to my detailed review of this camera here are the pros and cons of this camera. Pros: * Easy to use. Even a non-pro can use it to take beautiful 3D photos. * Glasses free 3D screen. You can view the shots in 3D before taking the photos without using 3D glasses. * Low Price!
Summary: I had read every review & comment I could find on the internet before purchasing this camera. The negative reviews were a little unsettling and I anticipated that the camera would have many of the shortcomings mentioned. When it arrived,the first surprise was the opening screen. It is in 3D! The first pictures I took blew me away! All I can say is "Wow!" Either I got an above average camera or something has been changed in the production line as of late.
Summary: Takes surprisingly good pictures for the price (paid under $160) and gives a sense of being at the scene. Has both 3D and 2D capability, but should be bought for 3D capability. Can review images on camera's rear display in 3D effect without glasses. Also takes 3D video, though must be hooked up to a 3D compatible display or tv using HDMI cable to view in full size. Pictures can be viewed on 3D tv either from the SD card or the HDMI cable.

Summary: My father had a photographic business and I've been taking stereoscopic slides using the 5-perf and 7-perf formats sever since a youth. During that time I've used many different stereo cameras and I have a colledtion of about 50 stereo cameras from the 40s onwards, in 35mm, 16mm and 620 formats. I was a group leader of the Stereoscopic Society, a member of the 3D Society, and one of the founder members of Internation Stereoscopic Union.
Summary: I recently purchased the Fujifilm 3D W3 after reading positive reviews along with its feature set. I've been creating 3D images and video for many years using a variety of techniques, and the prospect of a camera that takes care of a lot of the legwork is really appealing to me. The 3D W3 delivers in spades. Because of my background in creating 3D images, I had a pretty specific set of requirements for a camera like this.
Summary: My first 500 photos with this camera were a trial, testing many of its capabilities. I have done professional photography in the past, and this was my first adventure into 3D. Read about its capabilities. Most are true. to view the 3 do on its built in screen without glasses is great. I plan on building a home theater with 60" 3D tv just to view my photos and 3d movies of my trip to Alaska this summer. This will be one of 3 cameras I take.
