Panasonic has kick started the “First Year of 3D Era” thanks to the development of a digital twin-lens system that allows regular DSLR cameras to capture in 3D. Belonging to the LUMIX line, the new G Microsystem will be interchangeable, adding an entirely new dimension to traditional photography. Simple for the end user because of the flexibility of interchangeable lens cameras, this will provide “instant 3D shooting, without distortion or time lag between left and right images.”
Details remain scarce, no release date or pricing information was announced. We do know, however, that it will be compact in size, and will be released by this years end. Panasonic also revealed the first consumer 3D video camcorder.
