In addition to the 3D camcorder, Panasonic has also announced that it has developed a twin-lens digital interchangeable lens that makes 3D shooting possible with an interchangeable lens system camera. The company aims to release this new lens before the end of this year.

According to Panasonic, the 3D lens will allow high-quality shooting in 3D for its LUMIX G Micro System.

Alistair Robins, Group Marketing Manager, LUMIX, Panasonic Australia, said: "The next step is to put 3D technology in the hands of consumers who want to enjoy shooting 3D themselves. The new lens meets these demands - allowing users to shoot landscapes, people, and a variety of subjects in high-quality 3D, to be experienced later on their 3D VIERA televisions at home."

Panasonic's new 3D lens for the LUMIX G Micro System features two optical systems installed within the diameter of the lens mount, creating stereo images from the left and right lenses, to be processed with a 3D image processing system.

"This new compact 3D-capable interchangeable lens allows easier handling and instant 3D shooting with cameras without a special structure for 3D shooting. It produces 3D images without distortion or time lag between left and right images, even for moving objects. The 3D images, even close-up shots, taken with this lens are easy on the eyes when viewed on 3D VIERA Plasma TVs," says the company.

Panasonic Australia expects to make further announcements on the Australian release schedule and pricing for this new lens.
