3D Project: RC Heliopters

Free-viewing 3D

To view this type of 3D image typically 3D glasses (Stereoscope) are preferred but it might surprise one to know we can also view them in 3D without special hardware simply by crossing our eyes. 

Viewing oh natural ...
  1. It might help to click on the above image to view it larger and without any distractions.
  2. View the image at a comfortable distance
  3. Gently cross your eyes until you see four images instead of two
  4. Now relax the view so the images come together into three images
  5. Concentrate on the middle image and try to lock in the 3D view.
  6. When you do see the image in 3D (it takes practice) you should be able to move your view looking at the details.
Additional tips and hints.

Practice viewing with 3D samples

1:1 Cactus ... euphemistically, The Money Shot ...  Nikon D90 and Nikkor Micro 105mm 1:2.8, magnification 1:1, shutter 1.0 sec, f/57, ISO: 200

Cactus, The Money Shot ~ Magnification 1:1
Nikon D90 and 105mm Micro ~ Magnification 1:1 ~ Shutter: 1sec ~ f/57 ~ ISO: 200

'The Money Shot' was shot at f/57 the maximum f-stop at 1:1 for this lens therefor some detail (sharpness) would certainly be lost due to Lens Diffraction. This sample would indeed have been a little sharper if shot with a wider aperture. However for these first samples I wanted show this lenses best depth-of-field.
