After trying out the Loreo 3D lens, I found 3D photography to be so interesting and fun that I looked into getting a dedicated 3D camera. I was glad to learn that the Fuji Real 3D W3 has dropped in price from $500 to around $240 at Amazon (or $170 refurbished at Newegg). At the lower price, it's become attractive not just to the hardcore 3D crowd, but also casual 3D fans or even those just curious about 3D.
I got a refurb one from Newegg. I've been shooting with it the past week and am working on a review. Meanwhile I wanted to share one of the shots I took with it.
First, the 2D version:
I like the 2D version just fine. But here is the 3D version (left-right-left) for both parallel or cross-eyed viewing:
In the 3D version, the ripples on the water and the reflection on the water look mesmerizing. The reflection is three-dimensional, and the ripples on the water's surface make the duck really look like it's floating. Suffice to say I like the 3D version a lot more than the 2D version.
Stay tuned for the full review!
