I’ve been reading some articles on the new 3D cameras coming out on the market and wanted to know more about this new technology as it seems that it will revolutionize the way we capture images and/or create videos.
First I heard about was the Finepix Real 3D W3 , so I hopped over to YouTube to check out videos about this camera.
Here’s an hands-on preview video by Mat Gallagher of WhatDigitalCamera.com Magazine interviewing Mat Trim, a professional photographer using this camera.
– to be able to check the result instantly in the 3.5 inch viewer without having to wear 3D glasses
– capability of viewing your photos and videos on 3D televisions
– advanced 2D shooting (you can take a wide shot and a long focus shot at the same time) because you have in fact 2 cameras inside
-allows your creativity to spin off ( ex: take a black & white shot & a colour shot at the same time!) Wow..
and much more, as described in the video.
– heavier weight because of the two lenses
– need of much lighting or else results are a bit grainy.
– the camera can be switched back to 2D shooting mode.
Another way of seeing your photos in 3D is to have them printed. Stunning results but the tag price is approximately $7. 00 per photo.
To get the most of this camera, it will surely ask that we review our “photography basics” if we want to produce extraordinary scenes similar to the ones seen in the film Avatar. 😉
Shortly, 3D cameras and camcorder will be “the next big thing”! So, why keep your visual memories in a flat and traditional form when you can archive your precious photographs in real 3D for years to come?
Christmas is around the corner, have a wish list? I do… 😉
If you experienced already with this camera or other 3D cameras, do leave a comment below about it. We will be delighted to hear your thoughts.
Thanks in advance,
PS: leaving soon for a month’s travel inside “La Belle Province du Québec”, in Canada, with my dear friends flying over from France, Mairiuna and Jean-Claude with whom I co-author the blog “Everything Scotland“. We will come back with “tons” of photos to share with you. 😉
Meanwhile, take care and happy shooting!
