Fujfilm introduced a new 3D imaging system at Photokina. The “real image system” consists of a 3D digital camera, 3D digital photo frame and 3D prints. Fuji claims improved image quality over previous attempts at 3D imaging with its system and that viewing images will be easier since 3D glasses are not required.
At the core of the system is a dual-CCD, 3D concept camera that utilizes a new “Real Photo (RP) Processor 3D.” The processor pulls the image data from both sensors and blends the information to create a single image (still and video). The camera is also equipped with dual, specially developed Fujinon lenses and a 2.8-inch, 230k pixel LCD, which can display both 3D and 2D images.
One of the viewing options for these 3D images is the new 8.4-inch FinePix Real 3D Photoframe. Like the camera’s LCD, the 920k pixel frame can display 3D and 2D images.
Fuji has also developed a new 3D printing system that will produce prints on fine pitch lenticular sheets.
A camera with dual lenses offers new options for 2D photos and Fuji imagines that the simultaneous capture of two images can be used to create interesting options including ultra-wide panoramas.
Fuji refers to the camera as a “concept” model — so the system is not yet ready for prime time and we have no information about when this 3D technology will be available to the consumer. source
