It's marketing. The 3D lens is the same lens that's used on the 3D Camcorder. So they wrote the firmware to prevent it taking video's on the GH2 so that people would be forced to buy the 3D camcorder. Stuff like this never works out as the company intended.Yeah, tape or paper over the sensor is what I'm told works very well. Which is silly of Panasonic to make a 3D lens then say its only for pictures.
So how do you convert this into 3D?
