Those seriously after a quality consumer level 3D camcorder could well consider the JVC GS-TD1. [I am.]
However the Fuji 3D W3 is selling for $189 at a Brisbane northside HN franchise (Everton Park), and a remarkably low $127, at HN Brisbane city. I snapped it up at $127, as despite its limitations it offers a true taste of 3D. It needs an SDHC card for recording higher resolution video. (Late this afternoon, I used a Sony SDHC 8GB card, a class 4 device, though I see the instruction manual recommends a class 6 card.)
It's too early for me to comment much on performance, but some indoor shots tonight were pretty amazing as regards the 3D effect, albeit the images were a bit soft. (To see people you know, including yourself, in 3D on a television display is very very different to watching in 2D; somewhat eerie. For my vision, this is much closer to real life than 2D photography.) Low light performance was good. The lenticular screen on the camera performs well for recording and playback.
My Panasonic VT-20 3D plasma TV managed to read the SD card still photos in 3D, but couldn't read the videos. I transferred the videos to a pc and used the software 'sterescopic player' to play them in side by side mode. It is also apparently possible to play the videos with an HDMI cable with a miniature connector at one end; not supplied with the camera.
This is more than a toy, though less than a high performance 3D camera. My main concern so far has been a softness and somewhat muted colour of the images, but over the weekend I should be able to do some tests in full sunlight. Sound quality seemed quite ok for a small camera: a little bit of hiss, and interestingly the format is 48kHz 16 bit stereo, i.e. no perceptual codec.
