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 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...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 is the brand's inaugural, albeit pricey, 3D compact. Though smaller than the rival Fuji W3, can it justify its large price tag?

3D tech in compact body

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

Viewed kindly the 3D1 is a marvel of miniaturisation, with Panasonic able to squeeze two stereoscopic shooting 4x optical zoom lenses and sensors into a camera body of a similar width to a standard 2D pocket snapper.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

 

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.

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

The price premium paid for 3D, poor battery performance

One of the most expensive point-and-shoot cameras not to bear the Leica badge, here the user is paying a price premium for 3D stills and video. On the other hand the Panasonic 3D1 is the most compact camera currently to offer that facility, so there...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix 3D1 uses touchscreen technology to shoot true 3D stills and HD video. But is decent 3D enough to sell it?

Great touchscreen ; True 3D cature ; Multitasks ; Lightweight ; Simle

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

At current prices, the Fuji W3 can be picked up for around half the price of the Panasonic Lumix 3D1. If you just want to dabble in 3D photography and video (albeit 720p), then that's currently the more enticing proposition.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 offers true innovation that makes 3D photography and video shooting easy and intuitive. It's expensive, but you're paying for a lot of duplicated technology under the hood here. It looks good, it's fun to use, and it put in...

Dual-lens set-up ; Bright colours ; Good levels of detail ; Simultaneous video/photo shooting

Expensive

The 3D1 is a true innovation and a real stand-out product that offers something you won't find elsewhere. Such technological advances don't come cheap. There's no denying that an asking price above £400 for a non-bridge, non-dSLR, non-interchangeable...

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.

The company's first 3D point-and-shoot sports a 3.5-inch touchscreen display, 25mm lens optics and captures 3D videos and 2D stills simultaneously.

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
