Want to shoot pictures that pop? It is easy if you shoot 3D. 3D is getting more popular these days thanks to the movies such as Avatar and the 3D TV sets from name brand electronics manufacturers. While it is fun to watch 3D movies, it would be nicer to create 3D contents yourself. It just got a lot easier, with a 3D camera such as Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3.

The camera is not yet available to the general public until the first week of September but well connected Wall Street Journal reporter Katherine Boehert was able to get hold of a unit and produced a review.

According to the review, the “camera’s 3-D images and videos look incredible.” It is possible to view the 3D photos on the built-in 3.5″ LCD or on special (expensive) prints without using 3D glasses. Otherwise special 3D glasses and other hardwares are needed for TV and computer monitor viewing. Basically sharing 3D photos becomes very difficult due to the limited viewing options.

The 2D feature of the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 allows independent zoom settings on the two lenses. Users can capture close-up and wide-angle images simultaneously. This sounds like a great feature especially for travel photography where you want to get a close-up photo of people while capturing the overall background for complete story telling.

Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 is available for pre-order from Amazon for $499.95.
