3D wedding video continues to WOW them!

We continue to monitor the effect of recording a 3D video clip of the vows, exchange of rings etc we shoot on our Fuji 3D camera alongside one of the Z1s we use for our regular HDV wedding videos and of showing the clips at the reception. In fact on this occasion, due to lack of space, we clamped the 3D camera to a tripod leg

The 3D video presentation at last weekend's wedding - in an hotel in Hampshire used recently by a celebrity magazine wedding - enjoyed the same WOW factor as previous showings, with the added benefit that many guests thought it was a SDE which gained us more kudos.

In addition to giving us a little publicity, it contrasted markedly with the staid perception of the still photographer's technology.

Hi Philip,

What's your solution for displaying 3D to a crowd of people? All I can imagine is to show the video on a 3d LCD display or a 3DTV and the guests take turns to use a handful of the expensive 3d glasses.

Cheers!

Zhang, no our camera and screen use the Philips/Fuji system which involves a screen with a lenticular filter and needs no spectacles, expensive or otherwise.

I read a report from the trade show in Japan which indicated that Toshiba and JVC were both exhibiting products this week using the same system.

Interestingly my wife and I were shopping for a new (ordinary HD) TV last weekend and we remarked that the public must be pretty confused by the way 3D is being promoted.

In one major UK department store (Comet) they had a set (actually 2D) showing a side-by-side transmission of a 3D programme - pretty meaningless to the average punter.

In a major distribution outlet, Costco, they had a 3D set showing a 3D shuttered image - with no mention of the need for glasses - again pretty unconvincing we felt to the general public.

In another trade outlet (Makro) a large 3D TV was displaying a 3D shuttered programme and had a sign beside it saying that three pairs of glasses were available on request if you cared to find a member of staff and wait for them to bring them to you.

At the same time in the London Daily Telegraph newspaper (which regards itself as one of the serious papers) today was a large article about the impact of 3D TV - illustrated with a picture of a 1950's audience wearing anaglyph red/cyan glasses!

On this evidence I'd say the future for 3D TV is bleak in the UK at least.
