About Panasonic DMC-3D1

Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-3D1 3D Digital Camera is a versatile point-and-shoot that captures both 2D and 3D still images, in addition to 3D HD video. The two lens optical system lets this happen - allowing you to capture video and photos simultaneously, even when shooting in high resolutions. These two 25mm ultra-wide-angle lenses with 4x optical zoom and optical image stabilization capture all three formats with ease. The high sensitivity MOS sensor and Venus Engine feature 12Mp of resolution.

Other features include Multi-process Noise Reduction for clean, clear files, Intelligent Handheld Nightshot for beautiful shots, even in low light and without a tripod and quad-CPUs for processing large 1920 x 1080 HD data at a fast rate. Of course, other features like AF Tracking, Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Recognition and Intelligent ISO Control come in handy as well. LUMIX Image Uploader also allows users to automatically share the pictures from the camera. Simply check-mark the photos you want to share in the camera and connect to a PC with the included USB cable - or just insert the SD memory card. Uploading automatically starts and lets you upload to social networking sites or email.

Super 3D camera


Out of the box the only thing that is not there is a mini hdmi kabel .. That is the only thing that i could find what was nagging me . The 3D camera makes beatifful 3D pictures , so nice even that the real thing becomes boring . The 3D photo's that i toke are exploded on my 3D tv with beautifful depth clearity and colors . This camera does what it pretends to do, and it does it perfect. In 2D you have so much proffesional presets that there is for every situation there is a camera setting . Trust me it is loaded. 3D video is a little bit tricky, the surroundings must be oke to make a good movie, if there is no sun the 3D is a bit dissapointing . 2D video is better to make and is better than most average camcorders today on the market with its 1920x1080 resolution. Beatiful colors and a ton of presets are available. Conclusion if you love to walk outside to enjoy the park and the flowers surounding you , with this camera you make 3D pictures of those flowers that will keep you in your house to watch them on your 3D television, the colors and the depth will blow you away .
