If you are looking for a fun tech gift to give to the photographer in your life, consider the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 10 MP Digital Camera. A new product from Fujifilm, this 3D digital camera is fun, easy to use and brings the current 3D craze into your own home!
First things first, if you do not own a 3D television or computer, you will not be able to view your 3D photographs or movies in large view. You will, however, be able to view your 3D photos and movies on your camera’s 3.5 inch LCD screen (without 3D glasses). If you do own a 3D television or computer, I highly recommend this camera for family photo and video shooting and screening. This digital camera has the capability of shooting 3D photographic images as well as 3DHD movies. You can also turn off the 3D feature and shoot conventional 2D photos and videos. You can even shoot a 3D shot and a 2D shot at the same time!
With a 3x optical zoom lens, this digital camera is fully capable of capturing wide and telephoto shots. 3D images are best shot at close range with about nine feet being the furthest away a subject should be for best 3D appearance. Available shooting modes include natural light (with and without flash), portrait, landscape, sport, night (with or without tripod), sunset, snow, beach, underwater (housing unit sold separately), party and anti-blur. There is also a self-timer mode. The white balance feature is also very smart at detecting light. Overall, the photo quality of this point and shoot camera is amazing.
The only con to this camera is that it can be difficult to view your photos and videos on the LCD screen if you are in bright sunlight. Other than that, this is a very entertaining photography toy! It isn’t cheap, however. The average cost for the Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W3 is around $400.00.
