Fujifilm FinePix W3 Captures Video in 3D and HDBy Chris Weiss
Fujifilm announced its new FinePix W3 today, a point-and-shoot that can shoot 3D footage in HD. The model builds on the W1, a non-HD 3D point-and-shoot, adding a new processor that allows for 3D video footage in 720p.
The camera uses two 10-megapixel sensors that film in sync to capture the 3D effect. To view that wonderful, lifelike footage, Fujifilm includes a mini HDMI port for connecting to your new 3DTV and enjoying the fruits of your labor. In case you don’t happen to have a 3D HDTV around, simply view your video on the 3.5-inch autosteroscopic LCD display on the camera itself–no glasses necessary.
And if you think that 3D footage isn’t worth the storage space it takes up, the W3 switches over to good, ol’ 2D with the click of a button.
The FinePix W3 hits the market next month for $500. [via Dvice]
