in 3-D, you need both a left-eye and a right-eye image,
which your brain combines to see depth and dimension. Ideal
for still photographs, the 303 unit provides the simplest
possible mechanism for you to quickly, easily and accurately
capture left and right eye stereo images.
Photo3-D 303 slide attachment mounts to the standard tripod
socket at the bottom of your digital camera. The attachment
is small enough to keep in your camera bag and is about
the same size as a typical cell phone.
has thought of everything. The slide attachment has a built-in
bubble level and an extremely clever mechanism to lock down
the slider bar so that your camera does not flip over while
taking the photos. The slide attachment can be used in hand-held
mode with the included pistol-grip, on a table top or mounted
to the included mini-tripod. The pistol-grip is ingeniously
designed to fold out into the mini-tripod.
slide attachment can be used on a tabletop without the tripod,
too. Simply unscrew the four rubber legs built into the
sides of the slide attachment to create stable footing.
How many times have you tried to use a mini-tripod when
shooting outdoors and it wouldn't stay put? The Photo3-D
slide attachment takes care of that problem with its exceptional

color or black and white, and you'll have a 3-D image. The
software allows you to adjust the focus to make different
elments either pop-out at you or be deeper within the picture.
Your 3-D images can be printed, saved and viewed on screen
or in print, and may be e-mailed or posted on the Internet.
The Photo3-D Mixer software saves images in standard BMP
or JPG file formats, and you can print directly to your

selection of ways to export your 3-D image. You can save
your 3-D images quickly in all the popular 3-D formats including
red/blue anaglyph, cross-eyed, parallel (drift) and shutter.
Another cool feature is the option to save the image to
fit your computer desktop in sizes ranging from 300x200,
640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768. You can also save the image

is due out in late 2003.
Photo3-D Red/Cyan [RC] glasses are some of the finest 3-D
glasses ever made. While you do have to use RC glasses to
view anaglyph format 3-D photos, similar to wearing polarized
3-D glasses to watch an IMAX 3-D movie, now you can do so
with comfort and style with a pair of glasses that will

Magazine 3-D Issue
December 2003 issue of Bizarre Magazine, published
in Great Britain (now on news stands in the U.S.) is a special
3-D issue featuring an eclectic mix of weird images and
attractive models in polychromatic anaglyph. A color 3-D
cover of Playboy Playmate Neriah Davis in a skimpy bikini
special issue and this highly dimensional creature is featured
in a poolside feature story inside in 3-D.
3-D features include a typical Bizarre Magazine conglomeration
of truly unsettling images converted to 3-D by David Burder
of London. "Picture Post Mortem," for example,
is 3-D spread showcasing outsized hands, a streetside crucifixion,
the twin towers of the World Trade Center afire, a young
Zebra attacked by two hungry crocodiles in a river and a
striking photograph of a mountain climber dangling from
a giant icicle.
magazine is definitely recommended for adults and is NOT
for everyone. But it will become a 3-D collectible, I can
guarantee you. The poolside 3-D photos of Neriah Davis were
shot on Fuji Provia slide film with a twin Konica rig assembled
by the late, great stereographer Paul Wing. The two Konica
cameras featured matched 30mm lenses on a vertically oriented
Jasper twin mount with convergence or "toe-in"
capability and a split cable release. The twin rig was slaved
to a power-pack that fired off a synchronised array of strobe
and bounce lights that were planted in the backyard around
in a wild 4-color printed envelope complete with custom
red/cyan Bizarre 3-D glasses, this special issue
continues a publishing tradition of using the anaglyph for
its sensationalism, the process accentuating a momentary
visual frisson of glossy sex and twisted anthropology. The
numerous ads for video games and horror movies (one of which
is in 3-D), along with gnarly 2-D features on Jonestown,
Pol Pot, the Muppets and Men's Magazines of the 1950s and
60s illustrate quite nicely the insanely varied sensibilities
at work on the editorial staff. The addition of color 3-D
to this kaleidoscopic mix was inevitable.
