Panasonic Corp developed a twin-lens compact digital camera that can shoot both 3D pictures and 3D high-definition (HD) movies.

The company exhibited a prototype of the camera at IFA 2011, the largest consumer electronics trade show in Europe, which runs from Sept 2, 2011, in Berlin, Germany. It plans to commercialize the camera by the winter of 2011.

The camera comes with two 4x zoom thin lenses with folding optics that were newly developed by Panasonic. Also, it has an optical image stabilization function and can shoot 3D pictures and movies with little blurring. The user can take a picture by using one lens while shooting a movie by using the other.
