Ouch! So Akihabara News had a chance to try out Fujifilm’s new 3D capable digital camera, and saying they walked away disappointed is a bit of an understatement. Now the actual design of the camera and build quality were OK, but after that things just go downhill. The terrible UI apparently hearkens back to the good old days of 1999, and just changing something like the ISO settings required a trip through the user manual.
But the worst part was actually using the camera in 3D mode, which according to them will require a bottle of aspirin in your camera bag since the 3D viewfinder induces a terrible migraine headache after just a few minutes use. And viewing your 3D photos? Well the camera captures 3D images in a .MPO file which as far as they know is only supported by Fujifilm’s 3D digital photo frame. It does however capture JPEGs at the same time allowing you to view them on your PC, but image quality is another aspect where the camera is severely lacking. So the moral of this story? Avoid this camera at all costs.
