Panasonic is currently developing a compact camera that uses twin-lens 3D technology to capture still and video images in high quality 3D.
The camera’s diminutive size was made possible through two newly developed 4x zoom lenses with thin, folded optics. Its optical zoom system will be capable of different 3D shooting modes, from wide angle to telephoto. Blur is minimised through its optical image stabiliser which works in 2D and 3D modes, while shooting videos or still images.
Its twin lens design enables full pixel 2D still images to be taken while recording 2D video simultaneously. Captured HD 3D videos will be saved in the AVCHD format.
We are excited to take another step towards expanding the world of 3D entertainment. This exciting new technology means that you can capture photos and videos that are more lifelike than ever before, and relive these memories in the comfort of your home on your 3D TV” said Panasonic’s Alistair Robins, Group Marketing Manager.
The new camera will be part of Panasonic’s Lumix range, and will be previewed at the IFA conference being held in Berlin between the 2nd-7th of December.
Panasonic say the camera will be coming to Australia in 2012 with more details tobe released in the near future.
