Beside taking 8 megapixel 3D photos, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 can also shoot 2D pictures in 12 megapixel resolution. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 digital compact camera is capable of capturing 2D pictures and video simultaneously. In conventional digital compact cameras, photographers had to choose between taking a picture of recording a video, the twin-lens design of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 breaks through these conventional barriers with two separate mechanisms for photo capturing, allowing for dual shooting capabilities.
