macro 3D ?

Is macro 3D possible ? can we set any 3D system and shoot macro objects ?
As far as I know it is not possible to focus and/or getting 3D effect with macro .

Alkım.

I've seen macro 3D long time ago on YouTube. It was posted by Mr. Inoue - inouek3D. He must have remove those videos lately. Perhaps you can message him and ask him to re-post. He had a self made mirror rig and took some nice macros of flowers and insect.

thanks Pavel,

I ll try to find him, there must be a technique for his ? Althouhg the regular technique is based on the distance between our eyes, there must be another scaling system in order to get the 3D effect of macro subjects.

Yes, that is the main advantage of the mirror rigs. They let you set the interaxial distance down to zero. There are many descriptions and pictures of them in this forum. For example in these threads: Sony EX1/EX3 Mirror rig DYI , and here: New rig photos .

Macro is definitely possible, I've seen very good results. but you need a mirror rig that can be adjusted down to nearly zero interocular.

I found it: YouTube - 3D Waltz of the Flowers (YouTube 3D HD Test) , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSV5I...e=more_related , and here is the rig: http://www.youtube.com/user/inouek3D#p/u/66/OZFTzG9-xZg

thanks guys,
I mostly plan to use in the small ponds and rivers, but they are just huge and need to be designed for underwater usage. maybe using two Pana AG-HCK10 Compact Camera Head can help reducing bulk.

If you can bring a small computer with you, you may want to consider a pair of industrial cameras- the Elphel 353 springs to mind, for example.

You'll need to connect to the computer with ethernet to record, though.

seems light and compact, but I am still waiting much smaller and lighter all in one camera-recorder system than panasonic and sony. panasonic is still too big, and sony does't have manuel gain control.

The "all in one camera" systems cannot be used for macro. The new Panny, for example can't create good stereo of anything closer than maybe 8 or 12 feet.

If you're serious about this, you'll probably have to engineer your own solution. If you want to wait for a simple, off the shelf solution, you may wind up waiting for a very long time.
