I love this camera http://www.fujifilm....nepix_real3dw1/ The quality may not be great, but the fact that it does it at all, and allows you to view without glasses on the lenticular screen is amazing! :D

Now they have a monitor to go with it http://www.fujifilm....ures/index.html No glasses!

Products like these begin to address the question of how an enthusiastic newbie would ever get a chance of trying his/her hand at 3D. Up to now there was no way of of just picking up a 3D rig and 'having a go' like you can with a consumer 2D camera. Now you can. Of course it's very limited in what it can do, but that's so much better than the nothing we've had so far.

My 2p again. ;)

Now Aiptek launch a budget 3D camcorder for $200! 10 years ago this would have been science fiction.

And here's the lenticular budget monitor to go with it: http://bit.ly/Aiptek3Dmonitor

Next summer our kids will be making 3D movies on their phones! Blimey.

ooohhhhh..... liking that fuji......
don't forget the new panasonic 3D camcorder
seems to be around a prosumer level camera.

I assume the Fuji monitor that has no need for glasses uses something like parallax barrier technology? (thanks, wikipedia!)
PBT only works if you are in the exact right position relative to the monitor.
but, hey, affordable 3D.

The problem with 3D is that all your equipment has to be 100% compatible 3D TV. When will it end?

NEVER, if they had their way.

First time post here Hi guys. I actually like 3D and when funds permit will certainly purchase a 3D TV/ cinema package. Will wait for prices to drop some though.

The main problem with 3D is that you will need a screen much bigger than the 40-42" that are currently available. Even a 50" will be too small. You need an 8-10 FOOT screen to even begin to experience 3D at home.

I was thinking of getting one of those Mitsubishi 73" 3D Ready DLP TV's. That should be big enough.

What's the situation with home projection of 3D?


I had the opportunity to look at some 3D (a section of Avatar and a CG kids' thing) in a consumer electronics place yesterday; the technology appeared to be cross polarization on a TFT display. It ghosted like crap and gave me a headache.

There lies a major problem. Ghosting, or image lag. The other is Cross Talk, when images meant for the left eye and images meant for the right eye suddenly switch over. This can cause stuttering and those head aches you mentioned. It looks like manufacturers are looking at using passive (like the cinema) rather than active shutter (home 3D) as this method has better images, is cheaper (glasses are same as cinema)and has wider field of vision.

Watched The Green Hornet in 3D last night and found the 3D even more gimmicky than Clash Of The Titans. That Seth guy gave me migraine (I so wanted to bitch slap him after 10 minutes)Not impressed at all.

Good, innovative 3D technology needs face- / bodytracking. You will be able to see a little behind things when you move your head. This needs to be invented. It plays back i.e 3-4 videostreams for each eye and blends them while tracking your head or eye positions. This will need a high end computer thus making it more realizeable for the home market. I can't say if this technology needs polarized glass or anything but i think that this is the step to make 3D finally work. Anyways, I don't need 3D. It distracts from the essence of the whole thing: storytelling. It is just the same formal discussion as film versus HD.

Agreed. I want to enjoy the cinematic experience, not be pulverized by gimmicky looking 3D effects. I sill believe we are a long way from realistic and totally believable 3D effects.

Watched the extended cut of Avatar again last night (in 2D) and enjoyed it a lot more without all the hassle of glasses (which kept sliding off) and darkened image. Will be interested to see how Tron Legacy looks in good old 2D Blu-ray.

I'm still waiting for glasses free 3D using a projector. I hate wearing those damned glasses.

The Soviets had that in the 40s. They abandoned it for the polaroid glasses.

Well, it needs to be perfected and re introduced. That is a major stumbling block with 3D, those damned glasses.
