I recently bought a 3D camera second hand from [livejournal.com profile] ffutures. Here are a first few shots:

West Port, St. Andrews - from the west

West Port, St. Andrews - from the east

Blackfriars Chapel, St. Andrews

The Scottish Cabinet in Cupar, 6th July 2015 

Interesting to see what works and what doesn’t. There seems to be a greater sense of 3D if there’s something distinctive in the foreground, which is why I actually chose pictures with cars in shot when I had examples without. Things further away tend to flatten out a bit, even if there’s something in the foreground to emphasise the difference – but even in the middle distance, a significant difference in depth can make things stand out. I didn’t notice the pedestrian crossing the West Port in the second photograph when I took it, but she becomes an interesting feature when viewed in 3D. As usual, click through for full size – it’s probably worth it for that second one at least, as the figure is a bit lost in the smaller version.

Nice! I particularly like the 3D effect with the car crossing the roundabout, and the theatre (town hall?) shot. Though that last one looks a little like an 18th or 19th century foldout cardboard theatre effect, where the different cardboard or paper layers unfold to give a 3D effect!

I was able to glance at these easily because I have a cheap pair of 3D glasses by my computer already. Quite why is another long story, but hey, they helped this time :)

I'd be interested in seeing any more 3D photos you take.

Thanks for sharing!

As I pointed out when I sold this, vertical alignment can be a bit off with this camera - you'll get better results if you tweak the alignment in Stereophotomaker before fusing the 3D images.
