A specially made image processor then blends the two photos into a single 3D image. Somewhat surprisingly, the Real 3D camera will also be able to film 3D movie clips.

FujiFilm has also revealed an 8.4-inch 3D photo frame using the same technology, but hasn't revealed if that will also go on sale this year.
