i3DCamera is another application from Masuji Suto for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices equipped with a camera for quickly and easily taking stereo 3D photos with automatic alignment. The i3DCamera can be considered as a much simpler version of i3DSteroid by the same author, because in the latest version 1.2 it also got support for automatic alignment. i3DCamera however is available for free and is only intended for taking photos in 3D (taking two photos with a little offset) with auto alignment and the ability to save the resulting 3D photo in Side by Side format or send it for further manipulation in the i3DSteroid application if you have it installed as well on your iDevice. The i3DSteroid application has much more features and can be yours for just $0.99 USD.

There are already a lot of applications for iPhone and iPod touch (should also work on iPad tablets) available on the App Store that are intended for making and viewing stereoscopic 3D photos on your device, so what sets apart the i3DSteroid? Well, the fact that its author Masuji Suto is a well known name in the stereoscopic 3D community and that the program is easy to use and offers pretty much all that you need for easy taking, adjusting and saving stereoscopic 3D photos with the help of the 2D camera of your iDevice. You can consider the i3DSteroid application as the mobile version for iPhone of the StereoPhoto Maker software that you may already be using on your PC. Taking 3D photos is easy as just taking two photos with a slight shift of the device in between and you have a visual guide displayed from the first photo when taking the second one, so if you are careful enough you can easily get good results in 3D. But don’t worry, if you don’t take the two photos perfectly aligned you have adjustment controls to improve the result right from your iPhone and then you can save and view the photo in multiple viewing formats. Of course since neither the iPhone or the iPod touch have a 3D-capable display you’d probably use one of the supported anaglyph viewing methods and use a pair of anaglyph 3D glasses, but you can transfer the photos from the mobile device to the PC and view the Side by Side photos with 3D Vision or another such 3D-capable solution for best results. The i3DSteroid application is not available for free, but for just $0.99 USD instead on the AppStore and don’t forget that you will be supporting the author when you get it, so that he can continue developing his stereo 3D tools.
