Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 review

3D digital camera with two lenses and touchscreen

We shoot a specially designed chart in carefully controlled conditions and the resulting images are analysed using DXO Analyzer software to generate the data to produce the graphs below.

A high signal to noise ratio (SNR) indicates a cleaner and better quality image.

For more more details on how to interpret our test data, check out our full explanation of our noise and dynamic range tests.

JPEG Signal to Noise Ratio

Panasonic 3D 1 review  signal to noise ratio

JPEG images from the Panasonic 3D 1 show that it compares well against the Sony HX9v and Olympus VG-170 between sensitivities of ISO 200 and 800, with noise only becoming an issue from ISO 1600.

JPEG dynamic range

Panasonic 3D 1 review  dynamic range

This chart shows that the Panasonic 3D 1 compares closely with the Sony HX9v and captures a wide tonal graduation in the shadows and highlights up to a sensitivity of ISO 800. Above this sensitivity, although the dynamic range drops, images are still usable.

Marketing Information

The DMC-3D1 can record 3D photos and 1920 x 1080 high quality videos of the side by side method without any special operation or setting. Right and left images are captured simultaneously by the two lenses and the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) of the each lens compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake, even when shooting in 3D. It lets everybody take beautiful and blur-free images with ease. 3D photos and videos can be played back on Panasonic VIERA 3D TV that supports AVCHD format.
