Pros - optional 3D
- No more Trauerraender
- Good display
Cons - Low sharpness
- Image characteristics can not be changed
- few image control options
Conclusion Those who plan to shoot a lot of 3D should rather go for a dual-lens model of any major manufacturer.Panasonics adapter solution has indeed improved compared to the predecessor, but does not deliver particularly sharp results.The high resolution of its 3D images is a real novelty in this price range.In automatic mode, beautiful 3D images can be made quickly and easily.Manual control, however, is scarce.
