Fujifilm's FinePix Real 3D W1: dual lenses allow for 3D capture

As previously reported, the secret to the 10Mp FinePix Real 3D W1’s ability to capture 3D content lies in its dual CCD sensors. These replicate the work of human eyes by quickly snapping one image for the left-hand eye and another for the right-hand peeper.

A “Real Photo Processor 3D” chip inside the camera then synchronizes the images passed to it by both CCD sensors to produce a single snap.

Images and films are displayed on a rear-mounted 2.8in Real 3D LCD display, for which you won’t need to don those silly specs.

Stills and films can be watched without specs

An Interval Shooting mode also enables you to manually adjust the camera’s 3D settings, such as focal length - making it possible to easily capture fast-moving or long-distance scenes, Fujifilm claimed.

When shooting in bog-standard 2D mode, the camera’s dual lenses allow two slightly different shots to be taken with a single shutter button depression. For example, you could take a close-up view of your friend at a party and simultaneously snap a second image with a wider span that takes in the surroundings.

Fujifilm has equipped the FinePix Real 3D W1 with a 3x optical zoom and top ISO sensitivity of 1600. Several pre-set shooting modes also feature on the camera, the firm said, including Sunset, Snow and Party.

2D capture's still possible

The 123 x 68 x 25mm, 260g camera stores all pictures and films onto SD memory cards.

Fujifilm’s FinePix Real 3D W1 compact camera will be available in September, but a price hasn’t been set, yet.

Update

Various online sources have since reported that the FinePix Real 3D W1 will cost roughly £570 ($941/€662) in the UK. ®
