The picture was very dark compared to what was on the camera screen. The pictures look much better displaying through StereoPhotoViewer on my PC and now using PlayMemories on the PS3 through the 3D adapter to the TV.

I loaded some pics into Play Memories, and was blown away at the 3D effect of the pics. Play Memories is definitely the way to go - you can zoom in and move around in the pics and it maintains the 3D effect. And I got this popping out of the TV 3D effect.

I'm impressed.

I tried to view some of the .mpo photos you posted on my Samsung C8000. I tried unsuccessfully from a USB drive and via a Network connection to the TV. Has anyone got them to work on a Samsung with out using the camera? I heard you can convert them to another format that will work on a TV with a program like STOIK Imagic 5.0.

Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and have a question about the Fuji W3. Does the flash works when you are taking a 3D photo?
I have a Sony TX9 and because of the 3D Sweep mode (of course) the flash is turned off, so I can only take 3D photos in bright light.
Thanks in advance.
Marcio.
post #66 of 379
Yes, the flash does work in 3D mode.
post #67 of 379
I noticed the W3 comes with the following accessories.

NP-50 Li-ion battery
Battery charger BC-45W
Hand strap
USB cable
CD-ROM
Owner's manual

What do you need to connect it to a Samsung 3D TV to view 3D pictures and video?
post #68 of 379
You need a mini HDMI to HDMI cable to connect it to the TV.

Before investing in a major hardware upgrade to 3D hdtv, I have been having fun with anaglyph 3D photos and video, which can be viewed with cheap red/cyan glasses on anything - regular prints, 2D hdtv. What I learned is that color gets compromised, but blues, greens, and yellows do well, so:

Taken with Fuji W3.




Put on your glasses...
post #70 of 379
Can you post the full MPO from the W3? I don't even have anaglyph glasses since I find the experience to be so subpar.
post #71 of 379
The point of the anaglyph is to show a good example of an anaglyph. There is nothing special about the original jpgs. That's the point.

Clearly my posting is not for someone who dislikes anaglyphs and also refuses to look at them.

I understand what there is not to like, but until we have better options without heavy proprietary glasses and the necessity of purchasing expensive hardware that is not portable, this is what we can work with.

I was just asking for the original MPO since I thought it might be a nice picture in 3D...

How good are the regular 2d photos with this camera? I now have a Canon with image stabilization that takes great regular photos. Does this have any stabilization system?

The W3 does not have image stabilization, but it has only a 3x zoom (35mm equiv. 35-105) with no supplemental or auxiliary lenses, so IS is not very critical. It does have an "anti-blur" setting, which in auto modes biases towards higher shutter speeds. The 2D images are fine for my uses, I have printed up to 13x19 photos that are very pleasing. Usually I view most of my images on my Panasonic 65 inch VT25, which, like all 1080P HD TV's has about 2 megapixel capacity, so the W3's 10 mp images are no problem there. Here's a link to the W3 specs: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/3d/...pecifications/

Markr041, I liked your flower image, lots of depth.

Thanks. I am really enjoying this camera, and learning the tricks of 3D photography.

How do you show the photos on your TV? Via the camera and HDMI cable?

I either plug the camera's SDHC card directly into the slot on the VT25 and use the TV's Vierra app for viewing pictures or copy the .mpo 3D files to my PS3 and play them with the new Sony picture viewing software "Play Memories" as described in earlier posts (free download from the Sony Store). Both work well, but the PS3 software is best because you can zoom and scroll on an image and still retain the 3D effect.

It won't work with the 3D video, I have to use the HDMI cable for that. I have played around with Stereo Movie Maker, but have not been able to come up with a codec that works; suggestions for viewing the video files without using the camera would be really appreciated

Sorry to veer a bit off topic, but does anyone know whether 3D video recorded by Panasonic's new consumer 3D camcorder is also only playable by direct connection to the TV from the camera using HDMI cable? Can one at least played the video directly from the SD card on Panny's own VT25 TVs?

Stereoscopic Player for PC is what I use. $40 for a license to play longer than 5 minutes.

No idea on what's required for the Panny vid camera. My Best Buy has it hooked up with a live feed to the old Sammy C7000 demo station though.

Well, I have partially answered my own question. Clearly the 3D video captured by the Consumer Panasonic 3D camcorder can be played back from the memory cards IF they are played from a Blu-ray 3D player that has a SD slot, i.e. the Panasonic players. Still not clear though whether the SD cards can play video in 3D directly from the SD card when inserted directly into SD card slot on the Panasonic 3D TVs.

Anyone buy the AV-C1 av/usb cable.
if so what happens when you plug in the camera?
does the screen still work or does it go into a standby mode?

I am converting 3d movies to play on the w3 and i want to find a way to make headphone work on it when i travel.

A pin out of the av/usb port would be great, maybe it support stereo?

here is a post i started about converting movies.

I have the Panasonic 3D camcorder and YES they do play in 3D when inserted into the SC card slot of the Panasonic and it switches to 3d mode "automagically"! I wish I knew the industry secret so I could make my videos do that too.
I find the 3D image quality of the Panasonic 3D camera to be of poor quality.
The resolution seems low and the image seems dull and lifeless with lots of noise and edge enhancement.
Not impressed. The parallax is so small that it might be good for studying insects from up close if the insects can stand all the light you would have to shine on them.

Can you upload and post a direct sample video from the camera?

You mean unedited and direct from the card?
If that's the case you will have to wait a while.

I decided to order one today. I didn't see any option to do any editing on an MPO in the web uploader/editor. I was able to crop my picture with StereoPhotoMaker http://stereo.jpn.org/eng/index.html and then upload that file for printing. I guess I will find out how it turns out in a couple of weeks.

Cool to know SPM can crop mpo files.
I saw some video on youtube with a pro fuji printer that has a few options for print size. i guess its the same printer just there are lazy and dont want to have the options.


some other company that does 3d prints.
http://www.snap3d.com/

Back in the day (+10yrs ago) i had analog cameras with2, 3 and 4 lens for 3d pictures.
There were 2 companies i used that did 3d lenticular prints.
ill see if i can find their names and if they offer prints still.
post #89 of 379
I had seehere make 4 lenticular prints from MPO files from my W1 and I was not impressed with them whatsoever.
They were blurry and had virtually no 3D effect at all.
I wouldn't use them again.

Sounds like your homemade rig outshines the Panasonic camera by a significant margin, Frank.
