Vivitar offers low end 3D cameras
Vivitar introduced recently the ViviCam 790HD (99.99£ in UK) camcorder and the ViviCam T135 still camera (79.99£ in UK).
If you make your very first steps into the world of 3D and are not bothered by quality concerns, this may be a solution. But it may be wise to borrow one for a week before spending any money because both these nicely colored cameras take red/cyan anaglyph pictures and videos only; it is impossible to get separate left+right images pair with them....

Panasonic has now launched its own twin-lens 3D camera. The 3D1 shoots stereoscopic 3D stills and videos. However, its lack of 3D display is a minus as is its price of 449µ in the UK (specially if compared to the Fuji W3 you can have between 200 and 300£). The Lumix 3D1 should be available in December 2011.
