Description
The DMC-3D1 can record 3D photos and 1920 x 1080 high quality videos of the side by side method without any special operation or setting. Right and left images are captured simultaneously by the two lenses and the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) of the each lens compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake, even when shooting in 3D. It lets everybody take beautiful and blur-free images with ease. 3D photos and videos can be played back on Panasonic VIERA 3D TV that supports AVCHD format.The DMC-3D1 features 2-lens system. Folded optics lenses and High Sensitivity MOS sensors are mounted on both right and left. This system enables dual shooting of "Wide & Zoom" and "Photo & Video" by precise synchronization. It is also capable of multi-angle photo and video shooting, and taking photos with 12.1-megapixel full resolution while it continues to record videos. Lenses feature 25mm wide-angle* and 4x optical zoom. Thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology, the 5.2x Intelligent Zoom is also available*. *In 2D.The DMC-3D1 is equipped with a 3.5-inch 16:9 LCD with 460,000 dots high-resolution. The large LCD allows the display to control two images when recording in “Wide & Zoom” or “Photo & Video” simultaneously. With touch-screen, it is easy to switch the lens - right or left - and control its zooming intuitively. When playing back, you can drag the image across the screen with a finger to browse a collection of photos as you flip over the pages of the book.The High Sensitivity MOS Sensor and Venus Engine excel in image processing in both sensitivity and speed. Multi-process Noise Reduction applies optimum noise reduction according to the brightness of the part of the image. Images recorded in low-lit situations are clear even when shooting at high ISO setting. The Venus Engine's quad-CPUs circuit system achieve high-speed processing for large amount of full HD video data and fast consecutive shots at 8 fps in full resolution.The DMC-3D1 can record 1,920 x 1,080 full HD videos in AVCHD format and MP4 format. The iA Mode is available in video shooting. Since the camera automatically optimizes the settings, it lets you shoot stunning HD videos every time. The MP4 format is optimal for viewing or editing on a computer. Photos or videos recorded in AVCHD on SD Memory Cards are easy to view on a Panasonic VIERA TV. Simply insert the card into the VIERA Image Viewer (SD Memory Card slot) on VIERA TV or Blu-ray Disc™ players to playback your contents.

how does the 3d compare to an EVO 3d?



It's a lot better than the EVO 3D - that is a camera phone from a company with no decent reputation in making cameras.
This deal is for a compact camera from a manufacturer with a reputation for making excellent cameras - and this camera is no exception.

However, in terms of 3D capabilities, this camera does have some limitations -
1. You can't zoom while filming video in 3D
2. You can't view the images in 3D on the camera itself - you have to put them on a 3D TV or 3D monitor.

Personally I think the Fujifilm W3 is a better 3D camera - the IQ is not quite as good as the Panasonic (& tbh the Fuji camera looks naff), but the "eyes" are further apart & therefore creates a stronger 3D effect. 3D movies are rubbish on the Fuji though - so if you want to make 3D movies, then get the Sony 3D camcorder - HDR TD10 or TD20.

Very helpful comments - thank you. (Together with reading lots of reviews, you helped me make up my mind not to buy this camera!)

OP - great price on this though, well spotted.
Very good price for this!
