When it comes to shooting on the go, one camera that rarely leaves my side is the Panasonic Lumix GF1. In combination with the versatile, tack-sharp 20mm (40mm effective) pancake lens, it fits nearly all my shooting needs. Interestingly, Panasonic’s recent announcement of the LUMIX G 12.5mm 3D Lens 12.5mm (~$389), the world’s first interchangeable 3D lens (65mm effective) shakes things up a bit. Though I’m entirely underwhelmed with the 3D fad in movies and HDTV’s, the promise of capturing 3D images with my own camera sounds intriguing. Its functionality is pretty simple. The lens is essentially two lenses in one that create a stereo left and right image, which are later processed by Panasonic’s 3D image software. The fact that it has a compact design and is compatible with the Lumix G-mount camera lineup make it all the more enticing to use. Now, if anyone wants my decades old Nishika N8000 Lenticular Camera, just let me know.
