Re: M4/3 cameras that will recognize the Panasonic 3D lens?

robert mcafee

So what is the conclusion for image ratio for best results - 4:3?  If model camera makes a difference I have a Panny GX1

Sorry for the error. One reference I saw did not mention the mpo format for the GH4. (I was not able to find all the official specs for the various models on the panasonic site, as I mentioned earlier. I am having better luck now finding the official specs by starting with google searches and scrolling down to the official sites, rather than starting the search on a panasonic site.)

Francois did indeed write:

So we can add to your list of "next best" (resolution) the GX8, G7 and G85 for full compatibility with automatic mpo output.

And presumably any of the other non-compatible 16+ mp m4/3 mount cameras are capable of using the lens as John H does, capturing uncropped RL images that can be post-processed in SPM to a bit higher than HD resolution. Or even with compatible cameras, one can cover the contacts to get these unprocessed images, and/or video, if desired. Linda

The GH4, GH5, GX85, GX9, G9, G95, and G100 models do NOT include mpo as a file type.

As I wrote earlier, the GH4 does output MPO with the 3D lens.  See:
