I see many of you asking for RAW capture. It is possible with the older Canon D10 using CHDK firmware. Also it has f/2.8 lens. It really was a pretty nice camera although people complained about the form factor. It is the only one to have a straight inline optical system. I wish Canon had kept this design with the D20.

Hope the image quality has improved over their previous models. No optical image stabilization, that's bad. ISO 6400, what a joke on this tiny sensor. I would be pleasantly surprised to see decent images come from this camera.

Robert Anderson: The 3D feature will only work well for non-moving subjects. For video the right and left images will always be off by one frame.

You will not notice it on static subjects, but anything with horizontal movement will be displayed with the wrong depth.

marcomariano: been waiting for the D10 replacement. im expecting 28mm or wider, they did. but the aperture was 2.8, now only 3.9. oh come on canon!

f/2.8 on the Canon D10 gets me faster shutter speeds for sharper images when shooting from the kayak in whitewater. My friends with their Panasonic, Pentax and Olympus models always have blurry images or gobs of noise from higher ISO. It's sad that Canon has followed the poor design of the other manufacturers with the D20. I got tired of waiting for Canon to release an update and bought an underwater housing for my S95. It is big but at least the image quality is not compromised.

Can someone please point out the soft corners in these photos. I have looked at several full size and I am not seeing them. Maybe it's just my old eyes. I REALLY want something to complain about but they look too good ;-)

The only thing I learned from this interview is that I may spend my money elsewhere. Nothing new from Canon.

f8pc: What's the point of having the lenses an inch from each other? The 3D is hardly going to have any effect...

Can't wait for 3D to die out.

Have a look at the samples from my LG Thrill in the 3d & stereo photography forum. The interaxial distance for this phone is less than the Panasonic DMC-3D1. I find the Fuji lenses too far apart for close up photography.

In reply to:

Lan: Is the display autostereographic, or is it 2d/glasses? I can't tell from the spec above...

I am guessing that it is not a 3d display or they would be saying so.
I have 3D touchscreen displays on my Sony Camcorder and my 3D phone. Both work fine.

Lenses are 25-100 equivalent FL.
3.9-5.7 max aperture.

owenleve: This camera is AMAZING. I've done some work for GoPro, shooting product shots and was on-hand for some of the filming of the skiing shots shown in the video. I shoot with a D3/d700 and I have to say that this camera is very impressive. Handles light, low light and backlit situations very well.

The Sony would not shoot 3D stills and video of moving subjects. It's not waterproof and not enough wide angle for first person point of view video.
The Gopros are great for my kayaking and rafting adventures. Looking forward to trying the new models.

Robert Anderson: Another option for shooting 3D video and stills is the GoPro HD Hero 3D rig. It even comes with a waterproof housing for shooting in wet conditions.

The camers are two of the HD hero models. The stereoscopic housing is made the same as the individual ones so the problem underwater would be the same. Some users have modified the housing to correct this.

The picture at the top is of the old Canon s100.

No 3d stills. What a fail! Same with their HDR-TD10.
