Our verdict

If you’re looking to achieve 3D photos, the W3 is the ideal solution. It produces high-quality 3D images with the least effort while leaving you the option to fine-tune and tweak both the 3D effect and the exposure.

For everyday use, however, it does lack some standard compact features, crucially stabilisation, and the body is still a little on the large size despite being a great improvement on the W1.

Image and video quality are slightly questionable in 2D, but for 3D use on TV displays the flaws are not obvious and the camera can achieve great-looking results, even at the higher ISO ratings. This camera is an affordable way into 3D imagery and a must for any 3D fan.
