Panasonic Lumix 3D1

Michael Levine
 

All the 3D1 discussion inspired me to dig out my  Japanese language only camera. 
In my dim memory someone (Linda?) supplied a translation of Japanese screen icons for the Japanese only version of the 3D1. 
I searched the group but obviously did not have the correct search terms. 
Does anyone have a link please?

OK. Now I get decent sized images presented as if I am in a cube with windows on the four vertical sides, and I see different image through the windows. I can change the views by looking at the "navigation buttons" until, after a circle has been drawn around the wanted arrow, the view will image will change.

A few of the images are a bit difficult to view - often they are fine in the foreground, but unfuseable in the distance... But even so, an impressive resource!

Well done

The images are amazing. Even with my slow internet speed I see incredible detail and can take my time viewing each picture. One picture stood out because it looks like a dry stream bed with rocks on the bottom. The picture is in the second batch of images and once I looked at them this image was in the northeast corner, the next time I looked at them this image was in the south of my viewing. So it is a little difficult to name the picture. But the impression is clear that either water or wind formed the stream.

Thanks Jeff - I'll try the SDM group. The problem does NOT follow the card (I switched cards to switch the left/right roles of the cameras, and the problem remained with the camera), so SDM is not implicated, but I'll check the camera firmware.

OK. I'll give it a go, later :-)

The group you overlooked was the stereo data maker (SDM) group.  There are many references to your camera in that archive. Does the issue occur with the same sd card in either camera (in that the issue follows the SD card)? Do the cameras have the same firmware version installed?  Have you worked your way through the SDM menus for each camera looking for a difference? I have no experience with your cameras but I have used SDM successfully.

I'm at a loss to imagine how this is possible. Does anyone have any ideas - or suggestions as to what would be a better forum to ask this in? Thanks!

Hmm, well, FirefoxVR on my Quest2 told me to "set my browser to request the mobile version" of the site to get the full, immersive experience - but I haven't found a way to do that... As a result I just get a rather small image in the centre of my field of view...

Hi David,

Much to my surprise the camera made a MUCH LONGER exposure than when I was hand-holding the camera!
You're right David. I sometimes use my 3D1 in museum placing the camera against the glass of display cases containing some interesting pieces.
This is to, both, avoid the reflection from the glass and help steadying the camera.
The 3D1 will then decide to go for a long exposure, you will get a count-down on the screen and what I believe a second shot, a black shot to help lessen the noise.

Attached is a recent example of a gun inside a glass display case in a museum in Paris, picture taken with the 3D1.
This gun belonged to the man who led the insurrection of Paris in 1944.

I can also recommend this museum (Musée de la Libération de Paris) to stereo fans as you can get a nice "mixed-reality" visit of the underground bunker wearing Microsoft Hololens headset.
The museum as the "mixed-reality" visit are free.

A great little 3D camera! Thank you for your report, George!
I agree to both!


Pierre.

Hi George,


Many thanks for all of the information that you have supplied over the years about the Panasonic 3D1. I have to agree that it is great for 3D Close-Ups, and I like the wider angle lenses, and that it works better than the W1/W3s in low light situations.

For those who only have the "Basic" manual that came with the camera, here is a link where you can download the "Advanced Features" manual (the one that SHOULD have come with the camera).

http://www.panasonic.ae/EN/Manuals/DMC-3D1.pdf

One feature that I don't think is mentioned in the manual, is a way to get longer exposures in low light.

I discovered this by chance, when I was trying to take some pictures indoors in a stately mansion in low light, with the flash turned off. I wanted to get the mood of the room without the flash lighting it up. I hand-held the camera as steadily as I could, but he picture was just too dark.

Nearby there was a newel post at the bottom of a stairway, with a flat top on it. So I set the camera firmly on the flat surface and composed as best as I could from that angle, and pressed the shutter button with the camera firmly seated on the flat part of the post. This would be the equivalent to putting the camera on a tripod, which I did not have with me.

Much to my surprise the camera made a MUCH LONGER exposure than when I was hand-holding the camera! So I got a much better exposure! I tested this by hand holding a similar shot, and then taking it again with the camera firmly on the flat surface. I can only surmise from this that the camera can sense when it is being hand-held, and when it is firmly not moving at all, as when on a tripod.

If anyone can find this explained in the manual, let me know what page you have found it on! Try it for yourself, if you have not already discovered this feature.

Another thing about the 3D1 that I don't think is documented anywhere is that there are THREE versions of this camera!. The version with ONLY Japanese instructions, that was sold in Japan. The version that was sold in the USA that I bought new when they came out has only English and Spanish. And then there is what I will call the "International" Version. I discovered this when I bought a backup 3D1 from a seller in Germany, who said it had an English menu. When I looked at the language menu in the setup I was surprised to find that there were 16 languages on this camera! English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Czech, Hungarian, Dutch, Turkish, Portuguese, Finnish, Danish, Swedish, Greek, and Japanese (unless that's Chinese - I'm not sure). So I wonder if there was a Canadian version that only had English and French? Or maybe Canada got the "International" version. Anyone out their buy theirs new in Canada who can check the menu and report back?

Take a good look at the compact cameras of that period.  Most of them did have OIS.  Canon had it in its SD1100 that dates from 2008.
