Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

 

The Panasonic DMC-3D1 is the brand's first stereoscopic image generating compact

3D tech in compact body

No 3D viewer ; Battery life isn't great ; Pricey

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1

 

Two lenses and two sensors, haven't we seen this somewhere before? Panasonic's first stereoscopic pocket camera in the Lumix DMC-3D1 is taking on the Fujifilm Finepix W3 (and W1) before it. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 is not cheap, but it is clever....

Compact for a 3D camera, twin lens and sensor array is capable of proper 3D

The price premium paid for 3D, poor battery performance

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...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

 

3D digital camera with two lenses and touchscreen

Great touchscreen ; True 3D capture ; Multitasks ; Lightweight ; Simple

No 3D playback ; Limited controls ; Small sensor ; Poor battery life

Panasonic, Sony and Samsung are three companies with an obvious vested interest in pushing 3D imaging; they've been spearheading the campaign to encourage us all switch to 3D TVs for the past couple of years.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 Digital Camera Review

 

As its name suggest, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 is a 3D camera, with two lenses and two sensors. Daniel Bell gives us his verdict.

Shoots in 2D and 3D; Takes pictures and records videos at the same time; Fast continuous shooting; Touch screen is responsive; Excellent colour reproduction

Camera not easy to grip

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-3D1 Review

 

One of the few true 3D options available currently, the Panasonic Lumix 3D1 is designed for anyone that is looking to capture their own 3D images and videos. It's 12-Megapixel imaging sensors and 4x optical zoom lenses provide great quality and...

Compact size like a standard digicam ; Overall outstanding image quality ; Dual lenses allow true 3D capture ; One Touch Video is always ready ; Dual Shooting gives you options not available without two lenses and sensors ; Huge 3.5-inch Touch LCD is...

Very poor battery life ; Incredibly weak flash ; 500 price tag is steep, but it is one of the few 3D options available ; Lack of a 3D LCD Screen (like FujiFilm's FinePix REAL 3D W3)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1

 

Panasonic attempts to breathe more life into the flagging 3D imaging market with a compact camera able to capture 3D images and video.

No pricing has been announced, although, if the US retail price is to be believed, we're in for an expensive treat come early 2012 when it is released locally — US$500.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 Review

A point and shoot compact priced the same as an entry level DSLR, and which doesn’t bear the famous red Leica dot? Who’d have thought it of Panasonic? Yes, there are not actually that many alternatives for those looking to shoot with a set up that...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1

 

Panasonic has jumped into the 3D arena with the 3D1, a compact camera with two lenses that hopes to compete with Fujifilm's W3. While the specifications certainly look promising: 3D capture in 1080p, two 25-100mm lenses that can take pictures...
