Does anyone here have experience with using this lens for creating 3D pictures/videos using a DSLR which are playable on a modern 3D TV or Nvidia's Vision glasses? I currently have a Canon 7D DSLR and I am considering this product as a method for creating my own 3D images and video. Specifically, I'm curious how the quality of this would compare to purchasing Fuji's 3D camera option...

You'll have to choose the LOREO 3D Lens in a Cap 9005 for the 7D's APS-C sensor - http://www.loreo.com/pages/products/loreo_3dlenscap9005.html

I've considered getting one of these to try, but could not find it anywhere in Europe, just some older models that were not suitable for my camera. And now I'm using a DSLR with a Full-Frame sensor, so I'm not even sure how this will perform on a full frame.

Anyway, with this adapter you are going to get half the horizontal resolution for the left and half for the right image, thus getting much higher height of the 3D image then width and without cropping the image you will have huge black bars on the sides when viewing on a 16:10 or 16:9 aspect 3D monitor. This is most likely the biggest disadvantage, other than that the quality seems quite good and with a good DSLR like the 7D you'll be able to achieve much better results in not so good conditions, and you should be even able to shoot videos with the adapter attached.

Hello,

I bought a 3D loreo lens in a cap (T) for my canon 450d, and I have to admit the quality of the pictures is crappy : the plastic lens make a blurry picture,and the color are 'washed' and need some adjustments in your painting software. And of course, you can only take portrait picture to look on your landscape monitor. Also, the distance between mirrors is fixed, and you can only take picture of subjects in the range of 2/10 meters, or you can't respect the rule of the 1/30 of the distance between lens / subject. If you need to take action picture of moving objects/people, you'll need it; but for landscapes, monuments, take 2 pictures moving your camera : much better quality & you can adjust distance between lens.

kitarolivier, can you please share with us some full quality/resolution pictures you've taken with the Loreo 3D lens?

And maybe you can even post some 3D video with the Loreo lens that you can make with the 450D using this free software to capture the image from the LiveView - http://sourceforge.net/projects/eos-movrec/

I had tried the video capture; it works, and I'll try to do some video this w.e.

Here are old pictures I took a few month ago :

I'll try to put more later, but I have not too many, because of the deception of the quality. Even if you go to Loera site, there are not so much samples, and the quality is not better :(

Wow, thanks for posting samples.
The 3D is better than expected, but it's a very limited horizontal plane.

Thanks for sharing the photos. The quality is more than acceptable if you ask me and the depth effect is not bad either for taking pictures of closer objects. Of course the reduced horizontal resolution is a bit of a problem, but with a good resolution of camera's sensor you should be able to compose the photos well enough and after that crop them a bit to be better suited for viewing on a wide aspect display... :)

Pleased to bring something to the 3D community ;)

Also, notice that I have a full frame adapter on a non full frame camera. This mean that I must be far from the object I shoot, otherwise it does 'overfit' the frame (not entirely on picture). And the fact of beeing far means that the ration between the distance of the camera and the object and the distance between the two objectives decrease, and also does the depth effect :(

Maybe I should put horizontal black plastic stipes on the upper and lower zone to help framing in 4:3 instead of 3:4 (having landscape pictures).

Also, there are only two appertures : 11 and 22 (normal : if you want depth, you need close and far objects, and to have them sharp and non blurry), this also mean you need good light conditions.

Maybe I should try to shoot with a tripod and use lifeview to help focussing ? I'll try if I have time...

I don't know if the new model has better quality ? Sure it will help with the 1.6 frame factor.

Will this be compatible with my Sony Alpha DSLR?
