Blast from the Past: Vintage Commercial for the Nimslo 35mm 3D Camera

Sure, the 1980s isn’t quite so far in the past as, say, the first photo, but the commercial above is classic nonetheless. It shows off the Nimslo 35mm 3D camera, the first consumer level 3D lenticular camera of the 80s and, if you believe the commercial, “the most important new camera of your lifetime.” Read more…

The Kúla Deeper is an Add-On that Makes Any DSLR 3D-Capable

The 3D camera movement never really took off like some people hoped that it would, but that doesn’t mean 3D doesn’t have its merits. Many people still love the idea of capturing photos or videos in 3D, but they’re not necessarily willing to buy/carry around a camera dedicated solely to that purpose.

The Kúla Deeper side-steps this problem. It’s not a 3D camera in and of itself, but a DSLR add-on that enables your existing camera to capture 3D one second and 2D the next. Read more…

Tadaa 3D: An Instagram-Style Photo App that Creates Neat 3D Illusions

The Tadaa app for iOS is a neat camera and effects app that has managed to win itself some 3 million users since it first hit digital shelves. It’s done this by offering interesting effects and features that competitors like Instagram don’t — such as a Twitter-like re-share feature and the recently added ability to blur the background.

The newest feature out of the Tadaa camp, however, comes as its own stand-alone app rather than an in-app ability. Dubbed Tadaa 3D, it’ll allow you to “create breathtaking 3D illusions” using standard photos. Read more…

Pioneer Introduces 3D Hologram Printing Service for Expectant Mothers

When it comes to capturing photos of your unborn child, you’re pretty much stuck to the ultrasound pics/tape that the hospital lets you take home.

How to Make Stereoscopic GIFs Using a 3D Camera and Photoshop

Over the course of your comings and goings on the internet, you’ve probably spotted at least a few of those mind-bending GIFs that loop perspectives rather than a snippet of time.
