Panasonic has developed a system that allows cameras to take 3D photos and videos without the use of two lenses.

The system uses lenticular lenses and a layer of digital micro lenses to focus the light that hits the sensor more than normal ones.

If the system takes off, it could provide 3D imagery to a vast range of cameras, from top of the range DSLRs right down to small compact cameras.

The system uses algorithms to calculate the depth needed in the image. The difference between the actual view and the image produced by the camera will only be about 5 percent, according to Panasonic.

Panasonic aims to use the sensors in mobile devices, which are set to be released some time in 2014.
