Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3: Review

In the wake of the first 3D camera developed by Fujifilm (FinePix W1), it has developed and marketed a new 3D model. We are talking about the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3. Given the limited success of W1, Fujifilm ensures that the first true 3D camera in the world is the FinePix Real 3D W3.

Thus, at least on paper, the W1 is completely denied and from the technical characteristics would seem that this is really the first 3D W3 camera in the world able to achieve even HD video. Thanks to Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3, you can take pictures in 3D and 2D, as well as you can play in either 3D or 2D.

Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3: Design

The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 is a compact camera dl classic design and sinuous lines. On the back, in addition to commands, is placed a screen color LCD type Lenticular 3.5 inch and a high resolution (approximately 1,150,000 pixels) which gives a 100% coverage. On the anterior part of the two lenses are placed with their CCD sensors that allow the creation of videos and images in both 2D and 3D ch. Between the two optics is present, which allows the flash to be used in various modes of operation.

Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3: Features and Functionality

The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 is the first digital camera in the world with 2 CCD cameras capable of recording HD high-definition 3D movies and is fully compatible with all 3D TVs. The new dual-optic 3x zoom has been developed by Fujinon, thanks to the alignment of the lenses and high-precision thanks to the excellent positioning of the same, the 3D images produced by the machine are of considerable effect.

The two CCD sensors, each with an effective resolution of 10 MP shall ensure that each shot contain as many details as possible. Thanks to the presence of two microphones that record in stereo speakers integrated into the camera body to reproduce sounds captured a totally 3D.

The images and videos captured with the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3, are processed by the new HD 3D processor RP (Real Photo). This technology combines the image left and right, from the respective optical, in a single image. The processor is also the basis of 3D Auto mode that allows even novice users to get excellent 3D HD video with ease.

In addition to the functions relating to the construction of 3D images, the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 also allows you to create 2D normal shots. The camera it integrates aspects from “very common” 2D camera, including the feature Face Detection (with Red-eye removal. At the rear of the camera there is a button that instantly allows you to switch between 2D and 3D is in the recovery phase that being played.

Through the mode dial to always be positioned on the back of the camera, you can choose between manual and 13 preset modes. The M manual mode allows you to freely set the shutter speed (time) and aperture. The A mode (aperture priority) instead allows instant control of depth of field. In P also the camera automatically selects the shutter speed and aperture itself. Among the 13 are reset modes:

Natural Light – with Flash, Natural Light, Portrait, landscape, Sport, Night, Night (TriPod), Sunset, Snow, Beach, Underwear, Party and Anti Blur. Using the reset mode (SP) that best suit the subject and the shooting conditions, the camera will optimize all the necessary settings (shutter speed, white balance, sensitivity and even if the flash is needed or not).

The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 – 3D allows you to take shots from angels and customized from different positions, and the camera will automatically combine images shot and save them in a single 3D image. Through a single press of the shutter button, the camera will automatically make shots in succession. This mode is strongly recommended by Fujifilm to perform shooting in motion, such as when you are in a car, train or even an airplane, this is because thanks to these ” environmental ” conditions will not get 3D images with a high depth effect.

When the camera is in 3D Auto mode, all settings will be made automatically and will also be adjusted parallax (placement / overlapping of the two images) to get an optimal sense of depth. It is possible to adjust manually the sense of depth and alignment of the images via the lever for adjusting the parallax at the top of the camera.


The Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 is a 2D camera practically normal, but the real novelty lies in the possibility of shooting in 3D mode. This camera is the first of its kind with dual lens and dual sensor CCD, then not only introduces a new concept but a real technological innovation. If you add to this the ability to view their creations on a 3D TV, the picture is complete. Unfortunately, it is impossible to give an objective assessment due to the lack of terms of comparison with other products. The judgment is postponed.
