3D Video Recording
The DMC-3D1 can record 1,920 x 1,080 high quality 3D HD video of the side-by-side method. The 2-lens optical system artificially produces an effect called visual disparity. Right and left images are captured simultaneously by the two lenses, and recorded using the side-by-side method.
