Gosh, it seems like it was only yesterday that I wondered outloud when we’d have Fujifilm’s long-awaited, Real3D camera in our hands. A few weeks ago, we wrote that it’d be out in 2010. Well, we were wrong.
The point and shoot will be available here and in the U.S. come September 2009. While a price for the U.S. hasn’t been confirmed, according to the Telegragh, the dual-lenser will likely retail for about £570 in the UK, so you know, do the math… OK, I’ll tell you: That’s ~$935, which is $300 more than Time’s estimate. Ooof!
As we’ve explained previously, the camera uses two lenses to capture images that are combined to display either on one composite 3-D pic (below) or via a special 8-inch digi picture frame.
More details at Fujifilm, provided you read Japanese.
