Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 – In Search of the Third Dimension
|December 15, 2010||Posted by admin under Fujifilm|
Two 10-MP CCD image sensors hidden behind two 6.3-18.9 mm (35-105 mm) zoom lenses, a single, simultaneous release of the two shutters: “Click!”, and you can see your photo in three dimensions. I know; you’re going to tell me that stereographic photos are not new.
In 1851 Queen Victoria received a stereoscope as a gift. Even Leonardo da Vinci talked about them… back in 1484! But I am not talking about those photos with off-centered colors that you have to look at with those horrible 3D glasses made of cardboard with blue for the right eye and red for the left.
We’re talking about the computer version here. These images are saved in a new file format: MPO (Multi Picture Object); each of these (3648 x 2736 pixel, 4:3 proportions) pictures is close to 10 MP. But to be able to appreciate the true beauty of these 3D composite images, you have to use a 3D-monitor with new-technology: the FinePix Real 3D W3 (which, obviously, will not help lower the cost).
Fujifilm has even developed impressive, high-resolution 3D printing on lenticular sheets, so that you can print your memories without losing their 3D quality; they should have this service ready for the launch of the W1. The FinePix Real 3D W3 can film short clips in three dimensions (3D-AVI), but also allows the creation of two-dimensional, more conventional, JPEG and AVI files.
