Panasonic, REALLY? Poor 3D quality!

B. Brent, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: As a photographer/videographer for many years, I can easily see the quality difference between this camera and Fujifilm's W3 3D camera. I've owned the W3 3D camera for over three years, but recently I must have either mishandled it, maybe a slight drop to the floor or a bump. The right lens is out of sync and cannot be fixed w/o a costly (more $ than a new one) repair. So, even though others here have given the Panny 3D camera mixed reviews, I took a chance.

Buy the Fuji 3D W3 instead!

Joseph B. Mayshark "sheep107", Amazon
10 November 2013
  • Summary: As just a camera, this can't compare favorably in any way with most hundred-dollar point and shoots. It's okay, but just barely. But as a 3D camera it has two serious shortcomings: 1.Whereas when in 2D mode it's a reasonably adjustable camera: it has various modes, and manual overrides, which allow a reasonable amount of control. But when in 3D mode, it becomes a totally auto camera with no manual adjustments possible. 2.

  • Excerpt: I have been a pocket hybrid fan for many years, the perfect tool for the photographer and would-be film maker for the times he doesn't want a camera hanging round his neck. Being able to shoot stills which will stand A4 printing, and video that will look ok on a large screen TV with something that will slip in your jeans pocket has been something like the search for the Holy Grail for me.

Best pocket size 3-D camera but the JVC Everio Gs-td1 is best

J. Maestro, Amazon
1 April 2012
  • Summary: UPDATE December 15, 2013. This camera is listed in two different locations on Amazon. You can now buy it new from Japan for about $180.00 but don't do it because the JVC Everio Gs-td1 is the best and now it's available in the $500.00 price range on ebay brand new from Japan and has an English menu as an option.

Great camera if you read Japanese

Graham Brown, Amazon
14 November 2013
  • Summary: The camera itself I'm sure is really good but most of the sellers are sending direct from Japan and these are not meant for the UK market. The whole package including instructions, softwear (disc and on camera) and the battery charger are all in Japanese. Panasonic sent me a UK version of the manual so at least I was able to figure out how it all operated and used intelligent guess work as to what the messages were on the viewing screen.

Not fit for purpose

Joe, Amazon
28 July 2013
  • Summary: Disappointed. The camera itself is brilliant but that's not enough for a video recorder. The software is unbelievably bad - clearly the designers have never used the product in earnest. I went on a world cruise and bought the camera (after poring through endless comparison reviews)for the occasion. As you do with movies, you take endless short clips as well as long and moderate ones to record the experience.

Mr. N. Walayat, Amazon
26 February 2013
  • Summary: Worked great for about 6 months, now starting to die i.e. the sounds gone! lots of hissing and barely audible Also the videos a bit bouncy. Now I am going to have to waste time trying to get it repaired or replaced.

Not worth the money

R. P. Colenutt, Amazon
12 September 2012
  • Summary: It's early days for 3D cameras and this camera is very basic in it's functionality. For example, there is no "shoe" to connect an external flash and the focal length is very short. Worse still, it doesn't actually take 3D photos indoors on most occasions! To be fair, it seemed to be okay outdoors and if you could persuade it to take a 3D photo indoors, the results were what you expect - but sadly, only from a very cheap camera!
