Fujifilm Intros 3D System
Fujifilm has announced that the much-anticipated FinePix REAL 3D system is now available in the U.S. Introduced globally by Fujifilm Corporation this summer, the FinePix REAL 3D system is a three dimensional (3D) digital imaging system that captures realistic 3D still photographs and movies, providing 3D images that users can enjoy without special 3D glasses.
“The FinePix REAL 3D system is unlike any other digital imaging product on the market today, and the first real, complete solution for 3D digital photography, putting Fujifilm at the forefront of imaging technology,” said Go Miyazaki, division president, Electronic Imaging Division, Fujifilm U.S.A., Inc. “With the FinePix REAL 3D system, Fujifilm is offering users a totally new experience in both still pictures and movies to capture precious moments just as their eyes see them.”
The first product released within this system is the FinePix REAL 3D W1 Digital Camera that features the newly developed “FinePix REAL 3D Lens System.” The W1 has dual Fujinon lenses that layer together two images. An aluminum die-cast frame protects the 3X optical zoom lenses from vibration and impact. The “RP (Real Photo Processor) 3D synchronizes data passed to it by the two lenses and two CCD sensors, to determine shooting conditions such as focus, brightness and tonality to instantaneously blend this information into a single symmetrical image for both still photos and movies. The 3D/2D LCD monitor features Fujifilm’s own LCD panel, exclusively made for the display of the 3D/2D images on digital cameras, allowing users to see 3D images with the naked eye. As the camera performs a series of image processing steps automatically, anyone can take 3D photos and movies by just pointing the camera and pressing the shutter button.
