What exactly is a 3-D lens? Are there any sample pics or videos?
Appears to be two small lenses in one housing to record 2 images on the sensor
The lens throws two images onto the sensor, but because the Panasonic GH2 or G2 knows that it's a 3D lens (I tried it out the other day on the GH2, and the LCD says "3D"), it combines the shot and saves it as a 3D format image.
I will have another look today, and take some sample images.
Do you need special equipment to view the 3D images?
Does the Oly do this too?
I assume the 3-D lens produces an image like this at Flickr?

You can see 3-D simply by positioning your eyes about 15 in (or a bit more or less) from the computer monitor screen crossing and then slowly uncrossing them (or slowly cross them) until you see 3-D.
That is so cool!
2x ~0.5x picture?
This lens only works with specific Panasonic cameras (G2 and GH2 I believe) and to view the 3D images, you have to view them on a 3D television while wearing glasses.
Thanks Amin. Does it work with video as well?
I don't think it does, but I'm not sure.
Is it safe to assume that if it works with the G2 that it will also work with the G10 (same camera more or less)?
I wouldn't be interested in viewing images on a 3D screen, but if someone processes them on dual image cards with a cheap little viewer......I would be VERY into it. I used to use a 60s stereo camera and when you showed people the stereo slides, they would just FREAK out. They wanted to know why ALL cameras didn't record still images in 3 dimensions.
So does anyone know if anyone prints and processes these "3D" files?
Panasonic has a 3D video camera, allowing 3D video shooting but NOT 3D image shooting.
The 3D lens can be used with the GH1 or G2, but the G10 is NOT supported.
3D lens plus GH1 / G2 allows 3D image shooting but NOT 3D video shooting.
I would recommend the Fujifilm 3D W3 camera, it offers both 2D as well as 3D shooting, both stills and in HD video.
cool. You just saved me a couple hundred dollars with that info.
And shame on you Panasonic for not making it play nice with all your cameras.
Can anyone verify if this lens can work with gh1? From my reading it can only work with gh2 and g2. I would love to give it a try especially modded to capture 3d video
may able to attract new client, more money equal to more new lenses
Acc to me only G2 and GH2 are supported, NOT the GH1.
That's a cool effect. I can see it clearly with that method - it's a bit like lucid dreaming.
But what I see is like a collage of bits cut out and positioned at different distances, each area being on a flat plane. It's not like 3d reality at all.
Is the new generation of 3d camera images viewed on a 3d TV different?
Owh sorry I must've misread your post Herman, got mixed up between G2 & GH2, sorry
3D without glasses
It will not work with the G10. There are three companies doing lenticular 3d printing. Currently you need a 3D TV. Crossing your eyes will not work.
This may be a bit off topic, but here's a very strange way to watch 3D without glasses.....
