Hands-on Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 is one of the most versatile compact digital cameras on the market. Is it two video cameras in one with dual independent lenses? A 3D video camera? A 3D still camera? An HD video camera that captures high-resolution still images simultaneously? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

Pancake Lenses that are Small, Light and Visually Succinct

Pancake lenses, those small fixed focal length lenses that barely protrude from your camera’s lens mount, are becoming increasingly common of late, and for several reasons. 

Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 for Simultaneous 2D and 3D Imaging

For photographers who wish they could shoot 2D and 3D stills simultaneously or perhaps stills and HD video simultaneously, Panasonic has introduced the Lumix DMC-3D1, a dual-lens compact digital camera that should warm the cockles of the hearts of multitasking imagers everywhere.

Sony Announces Next-Generation alpha NEX-5n

Sony has announced a real-deal update of its mirrorless alpha NEX-5—the Sony alpha NEX-5n. The new camera contains a number of true improvements over the original NEX cameras.

The New Sony alpha NEX-5n

Just over a year ago Sony introduced its first mirrorless camera systems, the NEX-3 and NEX-5, to a very receptive public. To almost everyone’s amazement, Sony was able to design a highly functional camera that was both smaller than many point-and-shoot cameras, yet contained a comparatively monstrous APS-C format imaging sensor.

The New Sony α (alpha) NEX-7

No matter how you look at it, Sony’s second-generation NEX-7 is impressive on all fronts. Though smaller than many point-and-shoot cameras, the Sony alpha NEX-7 packs more resolving power than many, if not most full-size DSLRs.

Having two eyes allows us to see in 3D. Depth perception, or the third dimension, is formed when the brain combines the slightly different images seen by each eye into a single image.

Ortery Multi-Dimensional Photo Imaging Tools

The demand for multi-dimensional imaging has grown greatly over the past few years. Reaching well beyond technical applications, the use of 360°, 3D and VR photo imaging has been incorporated into many retail websites as a means of giving online shoppers a really good look at products. To this end, Ortery has introduced a selection of tools designed to simplify and streamline the process of capturing and outputting advanced multi-dimensional product photography.

Panasonic G-Series Optics (Wide Angle, 3D-Capable and Super Zoom)

Panasonic has added a trio of new guns: a Lumix G 14mm/2.5 ASPH wide-angle, a Lumix G Vario 100-300mm/f4-5.6 OIS super zoom and most intriguing of the three, a "two-eyed" Lumix G 12.5mm/f12.5 3D lens designed to capture 3D imagery when used with Panasonic Lumix G series cameras.

FujiFilm's FinePix REAL 3D W3

One of the drawbacks of 3D photography, going back to the turn of the last century, has been the inability to view 3D pictures without having to resort to extraneous viewing devices. Not so with Fuji's FinePix REAL 3D W3, which allows you to play back and view stills and video in full 3D—straight off the LCD—without having to wear goofy-looking glasses.
