No more excuses for not having 3D content on your TV

Fuji released a 3D digital camera earlier this year but unfortunately it confused consumers by not actually being compatible with stereoscopic 3D TVs. Now, it has announced a new digicam that will in fact finally bring homemade content to your new television set.

The FinePix Real 3D W3 takes a big step over its W1 predecessor by being one of the first cameras that can output content to stereoscopic 3D format. The previous camera could only export the 3D content to a special photo frame or to a computer with the aid of Nvidia 3D glasses.

The W3 captures 3D video in a special AVI codec and it comes with an HDMI output that allows for seamless playback on any of the current 3D TV models on the market. Behind the hood are a pair of 10 megapixel CCD sensors and two lenses set three inches apart from one another.

That tech allows the captured video to have a multi-dimensional appearance, but of course must be viewed with special active shutter glasses to merge the two simultaneous videos together.

Users who really just aren't in a 3D mood can also toggle between 2D capturing as well.

The W3 will be available early next month at a pretty reasonable price of around $500.
