    You know that old situation, your underwater when a particularly 3 dimensional fish swims past. Immediately you reach for your 3D stereoscopic camera, but alas, it’s full of water.

    Well no more! With my handy guide…

  2. Nice, only thing is lens positioning right? If you photograph a fish underwater, it might be more in one frame than it is in another.

    Nice concept though (Y)

    Yes the lenses are exactly 2.5" apart, the average distance between the human eyes. The hypothetical fish would be in more of one frame than the other, just as if you closed one eye then the other the fish would be in slightly different positions (assuming it stayed still) And because of this, when rendered correctly the photo would be three dimensional as it is in the test shot I did at the bottom of the page.

    Cool, but isn't it easier to buy special cheap camera?

    FujiFilm are the only company with a ready made offering, it's about £400 and doesn't go underwater.
