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?
