Our take on the Panasonic H-FT012

by Dave Bar

Go from shooting flat, 2D images with your camera to recording lifelike, 3D photos with Panasonic's H-FT012 3D lens. It uses two lenses inside the barrel to capture both a right and left image simultaneously in a side-by-side method. It then sends the information to your compatible 3D-ready Panasonic camera, which records the image in 3D.

To play back your 3D photos, simply connect your camera to your compatible 3D HDTV using an HDMI cable, or insert your cam's SD memory card into the slot on your TV. You'll be amazed by the added depth this lens adds to your images — people and objects will seem to pop out from the screen.
