Some 3D photos (red/cyan glasses needed for viewing)

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.


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.
