stereoscopic camera
« on: December 13, 2009, 08:55:47 PM »
On my walk around London yesterday I got chatting to a gent who was retired and got back into photography and he showed me new camera he had not long got that took 3D pictures
Although a bit gimmicky I wondered if anyone else has come across or used one. The shots he showed me looked quite good but he said there is only a 7" viewer to download them on when you get home

A few years ago Preston City Council decided to fund its own freelance / retail art gallery to which artists were invited to submit there work. I decided to submit some of my own printed, mounted & framed photographes of Preston. On handing over my pictures I was told that the gallery was more in favour of 3D work to 2D which apparently sold better. I was quick to reply that I should go out and invent a 3D camera then we will all be in the money.......... :legit:

I'm pretty sure Dixons sold a 3d film camera in the 80s.  Similar kind of idea.  2 lenses and you had to send for special processing.  Not sure how they printed because lenticular is really expensive for a one off.

I've done a little lenticular with a standard camera and it's quite stunning - but a bit of a talking dog ;)

Ooooo Google says it was the early 90s and it was probably the Loreo.  http://www.loreo.com/pages/products/loreo_photokit_mkii.html

I remember a stereo camera being featured in AP a long time ago - must have been the 80s I think - did'nt really seem to catch on probably due to cost.
