A 3D Lens & Panasonic's GH2 Camera

Techstination feature for Tuesday, October 5, 2010

What will sell 3D TVs? Lots of 3D things to watch. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Makers of the latest 3D TVs want to avoid any confusion among consumers. The 3D screens they have on the market are top of the line typically even if you never bother watching 3D content at all. But the capability does make them a little more expensive and so lots of 3D content is needed to make it worthwhile. At Panasonic, a new digital camera, the GH2, will have the ability to add a reasonably priced lens for shooting 3D stills. Product manager Darin Pepple...

"We first developed the twin lens technology for video in broadcast. It has now worked its way into the product line where it's an interchangeable lens that you simply connect onto the GH2. It's very simple. It works with our touch control as well."

The photos will display in 3D on many 3D capable TVs, including Panasonic's. You can find us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
