Last Gadget Standing Nominee: Fujifilm Real 3D W3

Price: $499.99

I’m not sure if the world is ready to start taking photos in 3D, but Fujifilm sure came up with an attractive was to do it. The FinePix Real 3D W3 digital camera is the first compact consumer 3D digital camera capable of capturing both 3D still images and HD 3D movies at 720P resolution, thanks to its dual-CCD, dual lens system. You can view 3D photos and movies on the W3’s autostereoscopic widescreen display–no glasses required–and the HDMI output port lets you connect the camera to 3D TVs. Other features include Advanced 2D Mode, which takes advantage of the dual CCD/dual lens system to capture two different 2D images at the same time–zoom and wide angle, for instance, or two different sensitivity settings.

    This is too little, too late (for too much). There are already 3D videocameras and still cameras available on the market for far less than $500.

    Which cameras are these?

    ViewSonic has had one for awhile… 2D/3D 720p video and 5mp stills in 2D/3D :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16830885001&cm_re=viewsonic_3d-_-30-885-001-_-Product

    3D is a nice innovation but if you are visually disabled (left eye damaged) you can only see in Mono. So the 3D effect is unusable since it needs stereoscopic left and right eye vision. I'll be waiting for the holographic ones expected by 2020 along with the Holographic TV's maybe in 4K resolution (twice as good as 1080p and six stero sound tracks now in Japan Labs)
