SYDNEY, NSW: Panasonic has got its asterisks and small print out today to announce a world first in 3D technology. The Japanese supplier claims to have developed the first “interchangeable 3D lens”, which can be used with its Lumix G Series Micro Four Thirds cameras.

According to the small print, this breakthrough is correct as of today’s date, with compatible models to be announced in an unspecified timeframe.

Talking about this is Panasonic group marketing manager, Lumix, Alistair Robins.

“The next step is to put 3D technology in the hands of consumers who want to enjoy shooting 3D themselves.  The new lens meets these demands, allowing users to shoot landscapes, people, and a variety of subjects in high-quality 3D, to be experienced later on their 3D Viera televisions at home.”

Panasonic did not reveal pricing or availability for this new product.
