Panasonic is Developing a Twin Lens 3D Camera with 3D Video Capabilities

Fans of 3D have been extremely limited when it comes to creating content - having to deal with a choice of only a few cameras and a widely unsupported format, but things are looking up. New cameras and camcorders are on the way, including the new Lumix Twin-Lens 3D camera.

Panasonic says that the camera is still in development but they'll still be showing a prototype at IFA Berlin at the beginning of September. The camera boasts two lenses with 4X zoom and image stabilization that works both in 2D and 3D shooting.

You can do more than just shoot 3D photos with the new Lumix 3D camera - you can do video too. Panasonic says you'll be able to do HD video in AVCHD format but doesn't specify the exact resolution. We're guessing that means 720p.

There's no word on pricing, but the new 3D camera is expected to have a winter 2011-12 release. A prototype of the camera will be on display at the IFA 2011 trade show; sorry no photos as of yet.
