Sony To Develop “Consumer Friendly” 3D Digital Cameras
At CES 2010 Sony debuted a whole bunch of 3D television technologies, but sadly 3D digital cameras, like the one developed by Fuju (3D W1) were missing from the companies portfolio. Now we’ve learned that plans are underway to bring a line of 3D friendly cameras to the masses.
Sony’s President of Personal Imaging and Sound, Masashi Imamura has announced that the company is currently testing technologies that will allow 3D to be brought to the forefront of the companies consumer base.
Current Sony already offers industrial based 3D cameras such as the HFC Comfort-3D and HDC-F950, but those devices are way out of the price range for most of us common folk.
No word yet on exactly when the tech may arrive in the hands of eager customers, but with plenty of talk surrounding the companies use of 3D Alphas, we’re hoping for sooner rather than later. [Digital Photography Review]
