Last week we reported on Panasonic‘s new LUMIX twin-lens 3D camera. Though it is still in the developmental stage at this time and isn’t slated for availability until winter 2011, Panasonic did have a model on the show floor at IFA Berlin, and DP reporter Lynne Eodice was able to get a close-up look at the LUMIX 3D.

From Lynne:

Though the model was behind glass on the show floor, I was able to glimpse at how stylish it is, with a brushed metal strip on the case and a slim profile. This compact model will enable you to shoot 3D still photos as well as 3D High Definition videos. The camera has two newly developed 4x zoom lenses, which will allow you to shoot in either 2D and 3D formats. The 3D HD videos will be recorded in the AVCHD format using the side-by-side method. After shooting 3D photos and videos, you’ll have the opportunity to view them on a VIERA 3D TV either by inserting the SD card into the TV’s SD card slot or by connecting the camera to the TV with an HDMI cable.

This promises to be an exciting 3D camera to use once it’s on the market, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a model when they’re released in the coming months.

Last week we reported on the newly announced Samsung NX200 mirrorless interchangeable lens compact camera. I was able to get a hands-on look at the camera on the show floor at IFA Berlin, as well as take it for a test spin around the historic German city. I also got to check out the other brand new Samsung cameras: the multiview MV800 with a Flip-Out touch screen LCD display, and the WB750 ultra compact camera with the longest zoom lens that Samsung offers.

Samsung Announces NX200 Compact Interchangeable Lens Camera

IFA Berlin—Samsung has just announced the NX200 compact interchangeable lens digital camera. Coming on the heels of last year’s NX100 mirrorless compact camera, the NX200 features a 20.3-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, an ISO range of 100-12,800, full (1920×1080/30p) High Definition video, and a convenient Samsung i-Function system lens, with which photographers can make adjustments to shutter speed, aperture, exposure, white balance, and ISO via the button and ring right on the lens. The NX200 also features some of the creative filters and Magic Frame feature that we’ve seen in other Samsung compacts, including the SH100 point-and-shoot (reviewed here).

The Samsung NX200 will be available in October. Look for an upcoming hands-on look at the camera from our reporter on the ground in Berlin!

Panasonic Develops Twin-Lens 3D Digital Camera

IFA Berlin—Panasonic announced today the development of a twin-lens 3D compact digital camera with 3D High Definition video capability. The camera is called Lumix 3D, and the prototype is on display right now at IFA Berlin. The camera will shoot both 2D and 3D still images and HD and 3D HD videos. Remember when we recently reported that Samsung was looking into two-lens technology for a compact camera to help with depth of field?

According to Panasonic, “The LUMIX 3D camera’s compact size was achieved by employing two recently-developed 4x zoom lenses with thin, folded optics, which allow users to capture crisp and clear photo and video footage even from afar.”The camera is expected to be available in winter 2011/2012. See the full press release below.

Look for an upcoming hands-on look at the LUMIX 3D from our reporter on the ground in Berlin!
