Fujifilm FinePix Real 3d W3 Digital 3D camera
Fujifilm. Now there’s a name you don’t hear too often, unless you are well into all things photography perhaps.
But stand-by to hear a lot more about the name Fujifilm 3d images, as the Company has just released a flagship camcorder the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3d W3 Digital 3D camera to make 3d movies which will be hard to beat for both picture quality and price wise.Launched in the US first, as recently as the end of August, this 3D camera has already notched up no fewer than 22 reviews from satisfied customers who all gave it a 5 star rating out of 5. That must surely be a record in itself in the space of 9 short weeks.
So it’s maybe worth delving into the features of this Real 3d camcorder to see what all the fuss is about.
The big deal first off seems to be the low price, which is about double the crazy low price set by Aiptek 3D-HD High Definition 3D camera which I reviewed on 1st October, but all of $ 1000 cheaper than the Prosumer Panasonic 3D camera with full HD 1080/60p from my review of 3rd October.
So in order to attempt to work out what determines these 3 wildly differing prices for what initially one would be forgiven for thinking that they were all alike apart from the branding, let’s take a quick look at the summary of technical details of each 3D camera from the sales information pages of Amazon:Lowest price first is the Aiptek 3D-HD High Definition 3D camera:Technical Details
