Fujifilm FinePix W3

By , Last updated on: 2/24/2017

The W3 is Fujifilm's latest stereoscopic camera, a dual-lens, dual-sensor compact point-and-shoot with the ability to capture 3D images and videos. The hardware puts it a step ahead of the handful of competitors that it has on the market, and for a second try at a brand-new format, it hits many marks. Still, there's a long way to go before a camera like this is a viable option for most consumers; 3D TV will have to catch on in a big way first. Of course, it can still shoot in 2D and offers the image quality of any run-of-the-mill shooter, but you probably don't want to pay $499 for a boring 10 megapixel, 3x zoomer, right?

Fujifilm Reviews

Being among the first creators of the compact camera, Fujifilm is one of the world's most significant imaging and photographic companies. Fujifilm launched the DS-1P in 1988, gaining credit for the first real digital camera widely available.

Most of their latest advanced cameras use an X-Trans sensor, which eliminates the need for an optical low pass filter by reducing moire with the arrangement of pixel units instead. Eliminating the optical low pass filter means there's less between the lens and the sensor, which translates into better resolution and detail.

Fujifilm digital cameras are famous for their natural image color, wide dynamic range, low noise and high sensitivity. It's hard to go wrong with a Fujifilm X mirrorless camera. Models like the X-M1 have an affordable price, yet sacrifice the right features in order to reach that price. Models like the X-T1, on the other hand, are packed full of the latest, greatest features on the market.

Fujifilm is about more than mirrorless though, offering several fixed lens cameras that are good options as well. Their super zoom cameras are usually a pretty good bet. They also offer a waterproof XP line, but they're more of a budget camera than a best-in-class option.

Fujifilm has also recently joined the retro camera craze, giving many of their models a retro film look with all the features of digital. Many of their models follow this trend, but there's a few that stick with a more digital look.
