    How come companies like Nvidia are not on this list

    And Nintendo 3DS really desserve this award. I don’t understand why the Playstation 3 is nominated, it’s nonsense.

    I have to agree that the choice is unusual… YT’s 3D channel had almost no activity during this year, or at least all the time I’ve been following it. How is that even comparable to amount of work that goes into constructing a new camera?
    Faster 1080p60 3D HDMI is not mentioned, yet slower format gets awarded… Half-resolution TV set is on the list, but none of full-resolution TVs or PJs…

    Its nice to see the Fujifilm Finepix Real 3D W3 Digital Camera being honored. Its is a Fantastic camera.

    I have read how other camera’s handle 3D video, although the Finepix is a camera and a camcorder, the 3D video is the most true to life 3D quality I have ever seen. Wow, what a Beautiful piece camera.

    Fully Nvidia 3D Vision compatible, you can use display the pics and video on your Nvidia 3D setup too, besides viewing on the camera itself of course. (On-camera screen viewing does not require glasses, Beautiful picture)
