Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 was the world's first 3D camera, beside launching this first 3D camera, fujifilm would also launch a 3D digital printing service to print the 3D photos that taken from this 3D camera into a special 3D paper shortly. Unlike the 3D films in cinemas, special glasses do not need to be worn to show the 3D image. Fujifilm's Real 3D W3 camera allows users to print and view photographs in 3D
Fujifilm's camera takes two photos simultaneously from its two lenses which are fixed a similar distance apart to human eyes. Using ''lenticular'' technology, the separate left and right eye images are interlaced on a furrowed surface to create the stereoscopic illusion. So what is the special features of this 3D camera by fujifilms? Fujifilms FinePix Real 3D W3 features two Fujinon lenses - each with its own 10MP CCD sensor - that are securely mounted side by side inside a robust aluminium die-cast frame that protects them from movement, vibration and impact.
When using the camera in 3D mode each of these sensors records its own image, which are then fed into the camera's 'Real Photo Processor 3D' image processor.
This method has been used since the 1940s typically on novelty items and stickers, featuring simple two-frame animations, such as a winking eye. However, the old technology is now being used in a wave of state-of-the-art 3D products, games consoles and billboard posters.
The new camera also incorporates a high-definition 3D video camera, allowing users to watch their home movies back on any 3D TV. The new FinePix Real 3D W3 will go on sale in early September, costing around £400 or approximately $620. Fujifilm said its 3D printing service will be available ''shortly'' after the camera's launch.
