Panasonics 3D Camera

Along with the other announcement Panasonic made today, they also told us about a new lens for their LUMIX G camera. You’ll remember that the LUMIX G is their micro 4/3 line, of which we reviewed the G10 back in May. The new lens is first to give the ability to take a 3D image using a camera with only one CCD, by using a stereo optical system in the barrel of the lens. Details are sparse, but keep in mind that splitting the image and using smaller lenses will really limit the amount of light coming in. We expect the lens to be available before the end of the year, but that’s about all we know. Also keep in mind that you’ll have to have a 3D display to view the images. You can read the full press release after the jump, if you are interested.
