Fujifilm HD 3D Player HDP-L1 for FinePix REAL 3D W1 Cameras

April 22nd, 2010 · 11 Comments · Shooting in 3D


It seems that Fujifilm is continuing to enhance its 3D product line, as after the launch of the 3D consumer camera FinePix REAL 3D W1 and the 3D photo frame FinePix REAL 3D V1, the company has just announced another 3D-capable product. Fujifilm HD Player HDP-L1 is a 3D-capable photo and video player that can play content from SD/SDHC flash cards like the ones used in the REAL 3D W1 digital cameras (the player can also work with other non-3D Fuji digital cameras). The HDP-L1 player has an HDMI video output and can be connected directly to one of the new 3D-capable HDTVs and over HDMI and play back 3D content in 720p Side by Side format, either video in AVI format or 3D photos in MPO format (used by the W1 camera). This new product will allow you to easily view the 3D photos and videos on a larger screen than only on the small screen of the camera or on the slightly bigger V1 photo frame. So far the Fujifilm HD Player HDP-L1 has been announced only in Japan and the launch date for the product on that market is set for April 27th or in just few days and probably it will not take much time for the product to appear in Europe and America as well as the company’s 3D digital camera is already quite popular all over the world. What do you think about this product, do you think it may be useful, or the idea of having such non-universal solution is not so good?

Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W1 – The First True 3D Stereo Digital Camera

The interest in 3D Stereo solutions is continuing to grow lately and one of the products that a lot of people expect is the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 digital camera that can record both in 2D and in 3D (still images and movies). The Real 3D W1 camera uses two separate Fujinon lenses along with two 10 megapixel CCD sensors to be able to simultaneously take two images just like the eyes of a normal human see everything. The two images can then be combined into a 3D stereo picture with the help of the RP (Real Photo) Processor 3D or into a 3D stereo video clip with resolution of up to 640×480. On the back of the camera you’ll find a 2.8-inch LCD screen that is capable of displaying both 2D and 3D content so that you will be able to preview the images and videos you shoot without having to worry if they are in 2D or 3D mode. Another interesting feature of the camera, when not shooting in 3D mode is the ability to take two 2D pictures with different settings in order to get the best result without having to take two different pictures one after the other. And you get all that in a compact and a good-looking camera that is very easy to use in taking both 2D or 3D images or even shooting videos…

The bad news is that the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 digital camera is still not available and is expected to be released later this year (in September). The price of the digital camera is still not announced, but different sources cite that it should be about 600 US dollars which is not that much if you consider what you’ll be getting. Of course I still cannot say if the product will be that good as we all expect it to be, but soon we’ll probably be able to see for ourselves. Along with the FinePix Real 3D W1 digital camera Fujifilm is going to also release an 8-inch digital 3D photo viewer – FinePix Real 3D V1, but of course you should be able to view the 3D images and videos you take with Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision and other similar products.
