I shoot 3D video and this is a still frame from a 3D video I shot last night at the Arlington Fly-In and Airshow. You’ll need red/cyan glasses to view this in 3D.
This is called – surprise – a “hot air balloon glow” when the burners illuminate the balloons at night. The balloons remained tethered for this night time event.
Video taken with dual Lumix GH-2 DSLR cameras at ISO 2500, 1/30th of a second, aperture setting controlled by camera (likely full open). Video streams combined in Magix Movie Edit Pro into 3D anaglyph format and output to jpeg still format in red/cyan anaglyph (false colors). Obviously, looks better before the jpeg compression 🙂
The dual Lumix GH-2 cameras have an interaxial lens spacing of 5 1/2 inches. This tends to slightly over emphasize the depth effect, however the GH-2s do better in very low light than my alternative set up, dual Canon consumer HF M301 camcorders.
3D STILL IMAGES – RED/CYAN GLASSES REQUIRED
This 3D image was taken from HD video shot on dual Canon Vixia HF M301 cameras with 2 3/4″ interaxial lens spacing. I think I prefer the results I get with the closer lens spacing.
The test “shoot out” showed 5 professionally made short films to a group of industry professionals and asked them to select which film looked best.
The cameras used included the RED Epic ($35,000 to $40,000 w/o lens and options), the Canon C300 ($16,000 w/o lens), the Arri Alexa ($60,000), the Sony F65 ($70,000), and the high end consumer camera, the Lumix GH-2 mirrorless DSLR (I bought mine for $650 with kit lens).
The film shot on the GH-2 was selected as the best overall quality.
Inexpensive dongle interfaces between iPhone and certain Olympus and Panasonic DSLR cameras. A software app on the iPhone adds new features including time lapse, motion detection, high dynamic range controls, and other capabilities.
Hoopfest is the world’s largest 3-on-3 street basketball tournament with over 7,000 teams on over 400 courts covering 42 city blocks. During this year’s event, high school FIRST Robotics team demonstrated their basketball shooting robots. This video was produced by me – in 3D. You need red/cyan or red/green glasses or a 3D monitor to watch in 3D or choose 2D. Use the 3D control in the player to select 3D viewing options.
