Panasonic's Lumix 3D1 Offers 1080p Stereo Video

Panasonic has just announced their brand new consumer 3D camera for the masses, the Lumix 3D1.

There was a rumor (apparently a very credible rumor) about this pending release that even included a photo of the camera, so you may already be up to speed on a lot this camera has to offer.

So yes, you can shoot both in 2D and in 3D, just like the Fujifilm W3 that I own.

The twin lens' feature 25mm ultra-wide angle lenses and 4x optical zoom, that results in 8-megapixel 3D photos and some pretty darn good videos racking up 1,920 x 1,080 resolution 60i quality 3D HD video. Further, it's optics delivers about 169% more viewing space compared to other 35mm cameras on the market. Photographers will love that feature.

Add in the Panasonic iA (Intelligent Auto) mode, MEGA O.I.S, AF Tracking, Intelligent Scene Selector, Face Recognition and Intelligent ISO Control, Intelligent Exposure and Intelligent Handheld Nightshot and you have a great little camera full of today's tech. Don't forget the 3.5″ Smart Touch screen at the back - Not sure if you can use the touch function for auto-focusing on a subject like the Lumix GH2, but I sure hope so.

I am still the proud owner of a Panasonic GH1 camera (that I promptly hacked) that records AMAZING video at 1080p 24fps at 50 to 100mbps. I will be upgrading soon to the GH2 as that is now hackable too.

The Lumix 3D1 is slated for release next month at a SRP of $499.99.
