Panasonic Updates Lumix G2 Camera to Support 3d Lens

 |  |  |  |  |  November 19, 2010

If you have one of those cool Panasonic Lumix G2 micro four-thirds digital cameras with interchangeable lenses, a new firmware has landed. The upgrade adds a really cool new feature to the camera if you buy the sweet Panasonic H-FT012 3D lens that surfaced a few months back.

That cool lens is very thin and has dual optics inside that allow compatible cameras to shoot 3D images. The firmware update for the G2 allows the camera to work with the lens for taking images in 3D and playing them back.

You do need a 3D compatible TV to be able to shoot the 3D images out in a viewable format. The new firmware you need to grab is version 1.1 and it can be downloaded right now. That 3D lens is a bit over $200, which is surprisingly cheap considering how much lenses can cost.
