Here we are comparing ZS3 and Real 3D W3, two Compact cameras from Panasonic and Fujifilm. Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 is a Small Sensor Superzoom class camera and Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 is a Small Sensor Compact class camera.
Panasonic ZS3 was introduced to market in May 2009 and Fujifilm Real 3D W3 was launched in August 2010. There is 15 months difference between ZS3 and Real 3D W3 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger Real 3D W3, especially in sensor tech.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Panasonic ZS3 and Fujifilm Real 3D W3 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
