Upcoming Fujifilm printer brings 3D home

Fujifilm's upcoming 3D photo printers will bring a new dimension to your photography.

Fujifilm's 3D camera

If you've picked up a 3D camera from Fujifilm and are basking in the glory of its 3D display, what are you going to do with the 3D photos you've taken, aside from view them on your slick new 3D HDTV? Rather than order 3D photos from Fujifilm directly, you'll soon be able to print your 3D shots from the comfort of your own home.

Fujifilm's 3D Print System will be compatible with its Finepix Real 3D camera, and will produce prints similar to this 3D postcard:

The key to getting images that "pop" off the page is to combine several different images taken from difference perspectives, then print the combined images onto a special sheet.

The Fujifilm printer will use lenticular sheets that act like lenses to reflect the images back at you at different angles, so you can experience the photo's depth-of-field effect. You'll be able to print on four sizes of lenticular sheets, ranging from 4-by-6 to 6-by-9 inches.

There's been no word on the printer's price, but according to Fujifilm, the printer will be available in April in the British Isles.

The Real 3D camera will set you back about $600, so my guess is that the printer will probably also cost a fair amount, especially in terms of ink and lenticular paper. While the price will likely be big, the printer itself promises to be small, with a footprint of only about 18-by-17 inches.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
