At the time of the Nokia N8 launch, this device had the best camera technology in mobile phones. With 12 megapixel and HD quality videos, one could record videos with better quality than some actual cameras. A user that won a competition that Nokia Connects held, was to win a trail with the Nokia N8.
After receiving the Nokia N8 and with his own device, he decided to create 3D images at first; after getting bored of the images, he moved on to 3D videos which is hard if you are not able to keep the cameras steady.
The concept of 3D is that the usual 2 cameras record in such a way that the left camera can only be seen by the left eye and the right camera can only be seen by the right eye. To assist with this, tilt your head if necessary but try to cross your eyes between the images. Stereoscopic images and Anaglyph images is old technology if put next to the polarization technology used with today’s 3D movies and pictures, the user here created stereoscopic images with his Nokia N8 devices.
Below is an example of a stereoscopic image:
The glasses that come with blue and red paper are needed to see the 3D images well and out of blur, Anaglyph images need the glasses due to the colours. Similarly to the stereoscopic images, 2 images are taken but they are not placed by each other, rather they are edited to be semi transparent and played on top of each other, the images taken are tinted in the colour of the lens of the glass.
During the time when you are taking pictures, if you take a picture 1 in a certain position and picture 2 in a different position then when you pile them or place them next to each other – they won’t give the 3D effect that you want.
The image below shows the mistake possible :
The users first attempt was a fail, once again – both Nokia N8 devices must be in the same position but of course that is hard – the user then made a contraption for both devices.
