The FinePix REAL 3D W1 Lens System uses two Fujinon lenses that enable two images to be layered together to achieve a natural 3D image. A robust aluminium die-cast frame has been used to protect the lenses from vibration and impact. It has a 3x optical zoom, incorporates a newly developed RP (Real Photo) Processor 3D chip, and can be adjusted to suit the scene being photographed.
When using the Individual Shutter 3D Shooting mode, the camera shifts to take the second shot after taking the first shot and saves a single 3D image in the camera manually, enabling editing of 3D images. When using the Interval 3D Shooting mode, it is possible to capture two shots from different viewpoints continuously while the photographer is moving. The Parallax Control (3D Tuning Function) allows manual adjustment of 3D images to produce a customised view for each person.
Users can also take standard 2D photographs, with the unit having an ‘Advanced 2D Mode’ that enables the capture of two different shots of the same scene simultaneously by pressing the shutter once. It also comes with a Tele/Wide Simultaneous Shooting mode, 2-Colour Simultaneous Shooting mode, 2-Sensitivity Simultaneously Shooting mode, and 13 scene positions.
The FinePix REAL 3D V1 picture viewer features FUJIFILM’s newly developed 3D/2D display 8-inch LCD panel which allows you to view your 3D stills and movies without wearing special glasses. Simply insert an SD memory card where 3D images have been saved and enjoy a 3D slideshow by switching on the power. The viewer can read and display image data stored on memory cards and can receive image data via high-speed infrared communication. Users can also directly connect it to a personal computer via USB and transfer stored images to the viewer for display.
Through the use of lenticular sheets, FUJIFILM has integrated high precision prints into its 3D offering in order to produce stunning high resolution 3D images. The process involves the 3D image data being integrated using advanced technology and projected through a lenticular sheet lens to produce an image with binocular disparity. This 3D print service will be available online in the near future.
The Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D System has an RRP of $899 and the FinePix REAL 3D V1 picture viewer will sell for $699.
