What's This?

The Fujifilm FinePix 3D W1 is the worlds first camera that allows users to take and view images in 3D, without the need for 3D glasses.

The 3D resolution works by using two lenses and two 10 megapixel sensors which simultaneously take two separate 2D photos and layer them together to create a 3D composite.

You can then view the images on the 3D LCD display screen which is 2.8 inches long and is lenticular, meaning two slightly different images are shown at different angles. This creates the required illusion of depth in a 2D image.

There is also an Interval Shooting mode which takes two shots from the left lens while the photographer is moving, which would be useful to capture landscapes. This is Fujifilm’s answer to the Sweep Panorama feature on the Sony Cyber-Shot range.
Outside of the optional 3D features, the Finepix also has some impressive 2D shooting features and a total of 7 different shooting modes. The 2-Colour mode takes two shots at the same time but with different colour modes and the 2-sensitivity mode takes two shots with different ISO sensitivities which is useful for taking photos at night or in low-light.

There is also an advanced face detection function on the Finepix 3D which can be accessed through the main menu. It uses Face Detection 3 which is faster and much more accurate than its predecessor and can detect up to 10 faces at a time. It works best in group shots but can also work when the subject is moving quickly, not looking directly at the camera or has their head in a different position or angle.

As with most modern compacts, video shooting is available for those creating their own online shows like Vic and Bob’s Afternoon Delights. However unlike others it’s possible to shoot 3D video (in VGA only).

The Fujifilm FinePix 3D W1 is available now from around £220.
