The technology of 3D pictures and 3D cinematography dates back to 1915 and those in the know consider 1950’s to be the “golden age” for it. However it only recently became mainstream and today, we see a large proportion of movies coming out in 3D, a lot of us have 3D TV’s and many of us want to experiment with capturing 3D images and video.
This latter part is usually a little difficult as you need to buy special equipment for the job. Sure, there are 3D cameras that cost as little as EUR 100, but they are usually very limited in their functionality and getting decent video out of them is next to impossible. Especially if you consider yourself a photography/cinematography enthusiast and already own a decent gear set.
