I'm curious about this one lense making 3D pictures. You have to take 2 pictures separately?


You move the camera horizontally and it takes 2 photos, then merges them.


Hmm, so it's not a real 3D camera, right... since it's not the same moment. There's probably softwares to do the same thing on a PC.

I've been thinking of getting a new "awesome" camera, and this one seems to fit the bell

What qualifies as a compatible 3D system? Is the VAIO going to start being pushed with 3D displays, now, or is Sony goign to market 3D picture frames, or what?

This has th potential to be cool but I want to hear how it's going to work for me as a guy who looks at pictures, first.


sony get panels from sharp... u know the guy that are doing 3ds screen. just they are producing large sizes in large quantities yet.

The camera lens does the moving itself, I think. That's how it seems worded to me.



A game I'm developing with some friends:

It is largely a technical exercise but feedback is appreciated.

That's what I get as well. If you want a normal picture in 3D, the camera will move the lense to create the effect, but if you want a panorama picture, you have to move the camera.

I done a search for the UK prices on this camera, found this
instead of having two lenses, the TX9 uses the sweep panorama feature to create extra depth. Hit the shutter button and move the camera from side to side. It will take up to 100 images and then combine them to create a single stereoscopic picture. You can then view it on a 3D TV via HDMI.

besides the ps move makes the eye 3d and it only has one lens so I am not that surprised.  



correct me if I am wrong
stop me if I am bias
I love a good civilised debate (but only if we can learn something).

 

If you want a 3D camera there are far better options that this half-breed.

First of all, it doesn't say 3D anywhere on the camera, at least on the front. So Sony obviously is not showing off the 3D aspect, if it is in fact 3D. The screen is not 3D, so you can't view your 3D pictures? That's kind of dumb.

Also, I wonder how the camera manages to take 3D pictures with only one lens. I think what you're saying is that you have to take 2 pictures, then it merges the two into a 3D picture? If so, that's neat.

I still think that the idea is pretty useless at the moment. First of all, how do you view the 3D images? What kind of 3D does it use? Stereoscopic? Anaglph? A different kind? They can be viewed on any 3D compatible system. Like what? A Sony 3D TV? So you have to spend $3000 on top of $400 for the camera in order to view your pictures? WTF???  You can't view the pictures in 3D when you take them, and I think that is really dumb. I don't wanna carry around my 52 inch 3D TV with me on vacation so I can see my 3D pictures. Sony should have put a 3D screen in the camera. Like, duh.

This is something I will definitely not be getting. Besides, what's the point when the 3DS can take 3D pictures, and it will probably cost much less than the cameras.

Yeah cuz clearly the picture quality of a 3ds rivals a cameras

and it doesn't say if this camera has or hasn't got a 3d screen....

and it says ANY 3d compatiable device...there are 3d Tv's and such for less than 2000 now even

Funny tho, when Sony makes some leaps in inventing stuff you come here sputing all these negativity and speculation, but you make sure to spin a 3ds rant in there somehow...

Unless you know for sure this camera itself can't display the 3d images then stop ranting

Yes I agree that the 3DS will have much lower quality pictures than the camera.

The camera does not have a 3D screen. the first website provided in the original post (http://news.sel.sony.com/en/press_room/consumer/digital_imaging/digital_cameras/cyber-shot/release/57945.html) says that:

Create Your Own 3D Panoramas

Both models offer a 3D Sweep Panorama™ feature, which lets you take panoramic pictures in one press-and-sweep motion. The high-speed burst of frames is stitched together using innovative processing techniques to automatically create detail-packed 3D panoramas. These images can be enjoyed in 2D or stunning 3D on compatible 3D televisions (3D-compatible HDMI cables and 3D glasses are also required and are sold separately.)   

________________________________________________________________________________________

If the camera did have a 3D screen, Sony would point that out no doubt. Sony didn't say anything about viewing the 3D pictures right on the screen. And, this info above from the  Sony website says you need another device, like a 3D TV to view the 3D pictures (and you need 3D HDMI cables and 3D glasses) (Just to view a picture in 3D!)

 

I do know for sure that the camera itself can't display the 3D images.
My purpose was not to promote the 3DS, but to question that: The technology is there, so why didn't Sony include a 3D screen in the camera?

ugh it says you can view what pics taken from a camera on any 3d device...it does not imply that the camera does not have a display that can display it as well..I mean who the hell put a description like..it can take amazing high quality images which can be viewed from the screen on the camera as well...????? I mean seriously?

it's a given really, you will be able to see it on the camera...no one in their right minds would say hey you can see the pics you take on the camera screen which is built in cuz it's da new awezome tech...your just speculating non stop here..unless you can give me proof or a link or something that this cam won't display those images then by all means I'm ready to accept it wont no problem BUT till then like all other cameras out there, the pics you take can be viewed on the cam screen as well, if not how the hell would you know if you took a proper shot or not? Geez

3ds pic quality will suck horribly compared to one taken from a proper camera so don't even go there..that's just blind bias bs

Some extra info

Sony has launched its Cyber shot digital cameras in two models as Cyber Shot DSC-TX9 and Cyber Shot DSC-WX5. Sony has updated these models, which can capture 3D images with a single lens system using sweeping motion, these digital cameras can capture the images at 15 different angles to put together in one 3D picture.

These two models are the world’s most smallest 3D cameras, which can capture 3D images with single lines system using sweeping motion.
