Panasonic has launched the smallest 3D camera featuring two lenses and having the capability to capture images in 2D and 3D format. Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 was first announced on September at IFA 2011, which was held in Berlin. The 3D camera will be available in the market by early December 2011.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 measures 4.25x2.3x0.94 inches and weighs 6.8 ounces including the battery. It also has a special feature called Digital Red-Eye Correction for removing red eyes in images, and a zooming feature for videos. It has an in-built memory of approximately 70MB but it can be expanded by inserting a SD card. Its Lithium-Ion battery life can last for around 200 shoots if it is fully charged. It also comes with an in-built flash and microphone.
Let’s take a look at the features and specifications of Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1:

Though you cannot view 3D images from the snapper, you can connect or insert the memory card to a 3D TV or Blu-ray player that supports AVCHD format. You can also connect it through an HDMI port and view 3D images and videos from your HDTV. Lumix DMC-3D1 has the capability to shoot two 2D images at a time using different angles of view, and it can also shoot 2D photo and full HD videos simultaneously.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 has a touchscreen display of 3.5 inch. The Megal Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) technology reduces blur in images and the Intelligent Handheld Nightshot technology helps in capturing clear videos without the need of a tripod.
