Hot on the heels of Fujifilm’s debut of the world’s first consumer digital 3D camera last year – the W1 – the manufacturer has released the revamped W3 Real 3D camera.
Having had the pleasure of reviewing the original W1 3D camera at the time of its launch, I jumped at the chance to put the new model through its paces. The W1 – while undoubtedly a superb innovation – wasn’t quite as polished as it could be for a mainstream audience, so I was intrigued to see how Fuji had responded to the feedback received.
A full review will follow soon of this formidable piece of technology, however first impressions are very favourable indeed: Fuji has addressed just about all of the key issues I covered in my review of the W1 (Digital Photographer magazine), producing what seems so far to be a more ‘complete package’.
The new screen is one of the features that I find most impressive, really showcasing what this incredible little camera can do.I can’t disclose too much just yet, but stay tuned for further test shots and updates soon!
I’ve uploaded a few 3D test shots for you to peruse, however I’ve had to convert them in order to share them online* – you’ll need red/cyan 3D glasses (or similarly coloured Quality Street wrappers over your eyes will do the trick! Red goes over the left, cyan over the right). Note however that no glasses are required when viewing images on the back of the camera, or using a 3D TV for example.
Suffice it to say, the Fujifilm W3 Real 3D camera adds another dimension to your photography! Priced at £399, the W3 should be appearing in a store near you now! For more info visit Fujfilm’s website by clicking here.
