Japan's Fujifilm unveiled Wednesday a compact digital camera that can be used to shoot three-dimensional (3D) photos and movies that can be viewed without special glasses.

The FinePix REAL 3D W1 uses a "groundbreaking" system comprising two lenses whose images are merged in a single 3D picture or movie, the company said.

Users can view the images on the camera's rear display screen or a larger separate monitor. Fujifilm said it would also offer a special 3D photo printing service.

"Viewed with just the naked eye, 3D images come alive with breathtaking reality and natural beauty," Fujifilm said in a statement.

The gadget will go on sale in early next month with a price tag of 60,000 yen (640 dollars), followed by overseas markets in late August.
