FujiFilm creates a 3D Camera

3d_cameraFujiFilm are getting set to launch a new camera that is capable of shooting images in 3D. The camera is named the FinePix Real 3D System and thanks to a couple of lenses built in, you can capture images in 3D. The lenses are about eye widths apart so that the 3D effect shows you exactly what you would see.

The camera has a resolution of 10 megapixels to capture the 2 images that are then put together to create a 3D effect. A special photo frame is available separately that is capable of showing 3D images.

The camera it’s self is relatively small and not much bigger then a normal digital camera. The dual lenses capture images that are slightly at a different angle to each other, just like your eyes do. When combined the images are combined in the viewers brain to create a 3D stereoscopic image which gives the illusion of depth in the image.

The special digital frame that we just mentioned measures 8 inches and has a special screen that directs a different image to each eye which gives the depth needed to create a 3D image without the need for glasses. The frame costs $200. An alternative option is to have the images printed in 3D which an overlay is attached to the picture which directs the image in the correct way to each eye, again, without the need for special glasses.

The new camera is set to cost $600 when launched and if it takes off, I’d expect to see more companies following in this pattern, especially now that HDTV is heading in the direction of 3D in the next few years.
