The 3D camera category can be seen as a whole or as two sub divisions – 3D camcorders, and the 3D digital cameras. The best 3D digital camera for one may not be the best 3D camera for the other. The real question you need to ask yourself is which is the best 3D camera for me, what are my needs? Am I a technology guy? Or do I just want to share my 3D photos on Facebook or YouTube. Which 3D camera will give me the best value for money?
In this review we will focus on 4 3D camera brands: Sony, Panasonic, Fujifilm and Apitek. Which ever 3D camera you buy, you will want it to be one of these manufacturers. In this review we eliminated the old 3D child’s play $99 cameras, plastic made, with manual picture modes. You can find plenty of needed 3D accessories for the 3D camera manufacturers mentioned here, 3D starters’ kits, 3D printing give always, SDHC memory cards recommendation and more.
The Panasonic HDC High Definition 3D Camcorder – This is a masterpiece for 3D camcorders, it has twin lens fitted on the Panasonic digital camcorder – Able to capture long 3D videos. When the Panasonic 3D Camcorder 3D Conversion Lens is attached, the SDT750 artificially produces an effect called visual disparity. Right and left images are captured simultaneously by the two lenses, and recorded using the side-by-side method.
The best way for you to see the recorded 3D images, simply connect the SDT750 to a 3D compatible TV, such as a VIERA 3DTV with an HDMI mini cable. When using the Panasonic 3D Camcorder, you can take some beautiful 3D photos using the Still Picture Recording mode.
Our review: For great quality 3D HD movie clips and for more planned events this is the best 3D camcorder you will find. The main downside of this camera is the price ($1100) and the size; it is not a camera to carry around everyday life in your bag for 3D pictures of daily events.
The Fujifilm W3 Finepix 3D camera – The W3 Fiji 3D camera takes the 3D into a fascinating level of fun and possibilities! The Fujifilm 3D camera imitates the natural way the human eyes preserve 3D images. The W3 Finepix 3D camera takes two images simultaneously (like our eyes do) which are captured on the disk at once. Then they are combined together (like what the brain does) into a full 3D image!
The Fujifilm W3 Finepix 3D camera, can be the best choice for those who go on trips and vacations, it can do the most wonderful things in 3D and 2D as well! You can take hundreds of pictures in 3D, 3D video clips as well (depends on your SDHC memory card storage and speed).
You will see deeper 3D images that the other cameras and more real 3D perspective 3D images and 3D videos because the Fujifilm W3 Finepix 3D camera uses two lens (unlike the Sony TX9 that has only one lens).
Our review: The Fujifilm W3 Finepix 3D camera is the best choice if you want real 3D pictures and 3D video, the 3D pictures will be the deepest perspective images from all the other cameras. It has a live LCD screen so you can see all your 3D content without the need for 3D glasses.
Finepix 3D W3 Digital Camera is easy to connect to any 3DTV using a HDMI cable. So once you are home you can view your 3D content photos and 3D home movies in amazing high definition 3D.
The downside – It needs to be held a little bit differently so your fingers will not cover the two lenses. The price is around: $350, which is a great value for money for holding the tip of the 3D technology at your hands.
The Sony TX9 3D Cyber-Shot Digital Camera – This is the world smallest 3D camera. The Sony will be the best choice for those who care less for the 3D technology implemented and want the 3D
experience as handy as possible. The Sony TX9 3D Cyber-Shot Digital Camera has only one lens which means the 3D images can be taken only when the camera is moved sideways panoramic. When the Sweep Panoramic pictures
are taken, thousands of images are being captured by the Sony TX9, and are then ‘stitched’ together into a 3D image clip.
Sony TX9 3D Cyber-Shot Digital Camera – Is a splendid family camera for everyday life with added 3D features. Once you take a panoramic picture (press the button and move the camera sideways) a 3D clip is being instantly made – You can view this 3D clip on the Sony TX9 3D Digital Camera rear LCD screen without the need for 3D glasses.
The Sony is more family, youth, teens oriented, if you look at the camera feature list, you will see a list of picture taking technology modes like ‘Smile Detection’ or ‘Anti Blink Picture’, ‘Blur background’ mode and more.. Our review: Sony TX9 3D Cyber-Shot Digital Camera is a fantastic 2D camera with cool and user friendly 3D camera abilities too. Even your grandmother could take sharp shots with it. It is sold for: $350.
The downside is that you cannot take still 3D pictures without swinging a panoramic clip.
The Apitek 3D-HD High Definition 3D Camcorder – Gives you the power to record in eye-popping 3D. Featuring dual-HD sensors, the Apitek 3D Camcorder captures high-definition videos and stills that work with most major brand 3D televisions. Also, you can play back and view your 3D camera recordings instantly on the built-in 3D LCD preview screen without the need for polarized 3D glasses.
The most surprising thing about the Apitek 3D-HD High Definition 3D Camcorder is its price… This Full 3D HD camcorder is sold under $200! WOW! When you see it you might think it’s a Smart-phone… it looks like a smart phone with two lens on it.
The Apitek 3D-HD High Definition 3D Camcorder has easy, One-Touch High Definition Recording in 3D. Our review: With the Apitek 3D-HD High Definition 3D Camcorder, 3D has never been more easy to capture and enjoy! The low price makes it the best 3D choice for those looking to create 3D content for low budget expenses.
The downside is the Apitek ‘brand’ is not as strong as Sony, Fujifilm or Panasonic, so if brands are your ‘thing’ Apitek is not for you. Second the low price might people think it’s one of the plastic 3D cameras and not the most complex 3D technology sold for less.
The 3D is here to stay – More 3D Televisions are being sold now than ever before. YouTube has a 3D channel; 3D games and laptops are here too, the 3D cameras are going to replace the regular 2D digital cameras we have today. If you get one then you are probably going to be in the center of attention from your friends!
