Panasonic was one of the first companies to introduce micro four thirds cameras to the market. These interchangeable lens cameras offer DSLR quality in a camera sized more like a point-and-shoot.

The cameras lack the mirror box of a DSLR making them more compact. Panasonic has announced that before the end of the year a new lens that allows the existing micro four thirds system cameras to shoot 3D images will be available.

The new lens puts two optical elements within the diameter of the lens mount. This allows the camera to shoot left and right images at the same time. The two images are then processed with software into a single 3D shot. Pricing is unknown at this point and Panasonic says the lens design will allow users to shoot 3D images of moving subjects.
