DXG Launches Cheap 3D Camcorder


If you think you have what it takes to shot the next Avatar, but lack the necessary camera, DXG’s new 3D camcorder leaves you with excuses.

At only $400, the new DXG 3D camcorder is chap enough for the poorest would-be-movie-director out there. It shoots in 3D, yes, but for this low a price, you can’t expect something like 3D HD. Still the standard VGA is decent enough. The DXG 3D camcorder even comes with a 7″ digital photo viewer that allows you to view your 3D footage, right after you shoot it. The videos save in motion JPEG format.

Sony’s 3D Glasses Will Have You Break the Piggy Bank


Japanese tech giant, Sony, has announced a slick line of 3D LCD TV’s scheduled to hit retailer shelves in June, and with it, a set of really expensive series of 3D glasses.

After Sony announced the prices of its 3D peripherals, it has become clear the Japanese manufacturer plans to cash in on not just the 3D LCDs, but accessories as well. I hope you’re sitting down, cause these prices might cause faints, and even seizures.

Sony‘s TDG-BR100 and TDG-BR50 active shutter glasses, will be priced at $133 each, when they hit stores, in June. And a set of four Sony 3D glasses and infrared transmitter, to drive them, will have you fork out a staggering $587.


Very Cheap Solution to Film in 3D from Weber State University

Homemade 3D device

There are many ways to shoot 3D video but very few are suitable for everyone, especially for those with a limited budget. The Scientific Analysis and Visualization Initiative at Weber State University has created a device that is based on two Kodak ZX1 pocket HD cameras. The cameras are placed on a L-shaped aluminum bar via machine screws with 6.5cm between them ( because this seems to be the correct distance to film in 3D ).

This is a great and also a cheap solution to film in 3D considering the fact that this homemade device costs only $250.
