A good product that falls short of greatness.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 shoots good images and video in both 2D and 3D, but you can get better 2D shots, along with full HD video, from cheaper point-and-shoots. If you're really sold on 3D photography, and are prepared to spend close to $500 to get those stereo shots, the 3D1 will do the job. Just be prepared to buy a 3DTV as well, since you won't be able to view your photos in 3D on the DMC-3D1's 2D LCD. Otherwise, stick with a good 2D compact, like the gdgt-recommended Canon PowerShot S100, which is available for under $400.
