By Posted 17 Aug 2010, 11:26

FujiFilm were not put off with poor reviews of their first stereoscopic 3D camera, instead they took the positives from the bad and then went to work on the next model. Now we have the FujiFilm FinePix Real 3D W3, and a number of the issues of the W1 have now been addressed.

Sean Hollister from Engadget has spent some time with the new camera and hopes to give it a better review than they did with the first version. The most important thing that has changed with the new model is its price – now $100 cheaper.

The new FujiFilm FinePix Real 3D W3 has a number of new features that Hollister is only too pleased to point out, these include a 3.5-inch LCD display, HDMI 1.4 and 720p video recording. There are still a few features taken from the original W3, such as 3x zoom and its 10-megapixel CCD sensors.

Hollister was told that the W1 met sales expectations, but the W3 looks set to do much better than that. However, he believes that FujiFilm has not gone far enough with the features, which could affect sales numbers. Read the full review visit Engadget.
