There is exciting news for fans of 3D technology this month, as Panasonic has launched its smallest 3D camera to date.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 allows you to switch between 2D and 3D when taking pictures virtually anywhere, then play them back in glorious full colour quality via an HDMI cable and an appropriate screen or display.

This means you can capture stunning HD videos, take all of your holiday snaps in state-of-the-art 3D, and enjoy the ultimate 3D photo or video slideshow when you get home. All you need is the right HDMI cable and a 3D TV, monitor or projector screen, and you can show off your professional quality images to everyone you know.

Additional features of the Lumix DMC-3D1 include anti-blur technology, which is very useful for taking action shots or for photographers who have very shaky hands, and red eye removal software.

The camera also has twin lenses, a self timer and a battery powerful enough for you to take up to 200 shots without needing to recharge. You get all of this, and in a lightweight, compact package that weighs less than 195g.
