This 3D effect relies on pretty specific subjects, distances and orientations. When it works, it's great. When it doesn't, it's like looking at the LCD with eyeballs that have just spent 60 seconds in a cocktail shaker. In addition, you can only view your 3D images using the specially designed 3D display media. Standard paper and screens can't do it.
That brings us round to the cost. The camera's not massively expensive at around £480, but Fujifilm's 8-inch 3D viewer will set you back another £370, while each 6-by-4-inch 3D print you order from the Fujifilm site will cost you £4.
The FinePix Real 3D W1 is clever, it works, and Fujifilm deserves a pat on the back for trying something new. But it's rather awkward to handle, the 3D effect only works with specific sorts of subjects, and the whole 3D experience could cost you a fortune. The key point, perhaps, is that you can't go around shooting everything you would normally shoot and expect it to work in 3D.
