Lumix DMC-3D1 – bringing 3D photography and shooting to normal consumers worldwide
10 November 2011
Conclusion: The camera’s features make it worthy of attention, except that the price is really high – the expected retail price is $500 – that’s for a point and shoot that offers no real quality to speak of – both 3D and 3D images are shot by a pretty small lens that doesn’t let a lot of light through.
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 is not cheap, but it is clever. But strip away the fancy 3D gubbins, and image quality - while up there with Panasonic’s best 2D snapshots - is not match for what you might achieve spending between £400 and £450 elsewhere on another camera.
Pros: Compact for a 3D camera, twin lens and sensor array is capable of proper 3D
Cons: The price premium paid for 3D, poor battery performance
