Other reviews seem to indicate bad low-light capability. Maybe I'll wait until this unit hits Best Buy. I'll be watching the reviews.
The Fuji W-3 or W-1 for that matter do take some getting used to as far as shooting video or still images in 3D for that matter.
I found that you do indeed need full light to get the best results. The lower the light the more grain and the effect is ruined. You also need a single pole tripod to hold the camera steady. 3D is extremely susceptable to camera shake.
Also it is really easy to stick a finger in front of one of the two lenses by accident and if only briefly it ruins a shot, either still or video.
But with that said, once you get the hang of shooting 3D, judging distances, mulitple objects in depth of field, it is all worth it once you get it up on the big new 3D TV.
Since I got the hang of it, I have been spitting time between HD Camera and Fuji 3D camera, but when the W-3 gets here, I may try going exclusively with 3D, I like what it brings to the experience of looking at stills and video that much.
