Here's the anaglyph and side by side versions of a 3D close-up I shot today.

Today, I took the LOREO lens outside for the first time.
:eek::eek:A lot of strange looks in the park, even one guy asking me questions about the funny thingie in front of my G1:eek::eek:

Here's a couple of shots from the Loreo, I'll first show them in anaglyphs, and a second post in side by sides.

Very interesting stuff! Can you provide details on the particular Loreo lens you are using? I took a peek at their site, but wasn't sure which option might work for :43:. How about a picture of the lens (preferably on your camera)?

Also, can you provide more detail on the software tool (StereoPhoto Maker) you said you're using? In your original post you seemed to imply it can create 3D from a single image. This seems a bit like sorcery to me.

Sorry for the late answer, I didn't see your post until this evening.
I'm using a 3D Lens 9005 from Loreo, in the micro4/3 mount.
I read something about single image stereophotos in another forum, I gave it a try, but it is much better with the LOREO lens system.
I also shot a 3D movie with the 9005 on a GH2, works fine as well !

Have a nice weekend,
Rafael

I tried using 3D to help folks visualize hard to read grave markers but got mixed results ... and suggestions are most welcome.

3D Trickery - Minus
I've always found that a side-by-side image pair viewed naked eye or with a good viewer yields more visible detail than what I see with anaglyphs. My favorite print format is the old Holmes 7"w x 3.5"h stereocard, the same format as was made popular by Underwood & Underwood.

BTW, in the US, Berezin is and excellent source for viewers of all types.

several of my friends report the same problem. I find it very easy to see them in 3d by crossing my eyes and focusing on the line between the 2 images.

I went to the website for the 3D Lens 9005 from Loreo and used the same technique to view their sample images. The oddity with those images is that my technique resulted in the backgrounds jumping into view as the foreground. Very weird

There are two ways of viewing stereo pairs without apparatus. One is the cross-eyed approach, in which each eye sees the image on the opposite side. The other is to look "through" or beyond the pair so each eye sees the image on its own side. The second method requires that the width of the images is less than your inter pupillary distance, otherwise you would have to go "wall-eyed" (exotropic) in order to view the pair -- not something easily done.

See the Wikipedia entry on stereoscopy for the full rundown.

If you try the cross-eyed approach on a same-side pair, you get the inversion of depth effect which you mentioned.

There are two "standards" for side-by-side images. One is like those posted in post #33 where you cross your eyes to overlap the two images. The other is the original side-by-side image arrangement, dating from the 1840s and the only standard for the next 125 years +, were you let your eye drift slightly walleyed. This is the way the old stereo cards worked and is type I posted as an attachment back in post #27.

What you describe makes it sound like the Loreo images were setup for stereo card printing or wall-eyed viewing.

There is a nice free software - stereophoto maker which can do conversions between multiple types of stereo images.
I for example cannot see stereo effect of old and new stereo cards (parallel stereo viewing) without stereoscope but
I haven't problem with cross-eye stereo images.

Stereophoto maker is also pretty good for making stereo images - here are two version of the same stereo image (Czech Gripen) which I did few seconds ago - the first one is for cross-eye viewing and the second one is for parallel viewing:
