Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

3D digital camera with two lenses and touchscreen

As part of our image quality testing for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1, we've shot our resolution chart.

If you view our crops of the resolution chart's central section at 100% (or Actual Pixels) you will see that, for example, at ISO 100 the Panasonic 3D1 is capable of resolving up to around 18 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files.

See a full explanation of what our resolution charts mean, and how to read them.

Examining images of the chart taken at each sensitivity setting reveals the following resolution scores in line widths per picture height x100:

Marketing Information

The DMC-3D1 can record 3D photos and 1920 x 1080 high quality videos of the side by side method without any special operation or setting. Right and left images are captured simultaneously by the two lenses and the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) of the each lens compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake, even when shooting in 3D. It lets everybody take beautiful and blur-free images with ease. 3D photos and videos can be played back on Panasonic VIERA 3D TV that supports AVCHD format.
