All the 3D imagery that you see in movie theaters is truly stupefying and now you can produce the same effect yourself too. Here is a camera using which one can generate 3D images. This amazing piece is a concept camera by Gordon Tiemstra and the industrial designer crafted it for his university project. Known as the Apollon camera, the extraordinary abilities of this astounding camera are highlighted below.
What’s special about the camera is that it can be combined, by which we mean it can be physically attached to other cameras. Now this unique setup is capable of achieving things that other cameras cannot do. With this linked chain of cameras, you can click 3D snapshots and also create panoramas. But how exactly does this happen? The process is quite simple actually and a few nifty features in the camera make all this possible.
The wireless feature this camera embeds can transfer snaps clicked from other cameras onto your piece. Now, you have many snaps of the same scene but clicked from slightly different angles. These shots, all of the identical scene but each slightly different from the other, are then processed. Using these, you can now create animation and 3D images. A software fitted in the camera works on the processing. So, all you have to do is attach it with other cameras and click photos.
If you are a photography nut or like to experiment with your camera, then you must go for this piece. The very shape of the camera will stir you to delve deeper and explore the possibilities. You can try out various configurations. Also, the interconnected cameras can be used in many ways. Test out loads of angles or perspectives. Even processing on the software can be done in different styles. So, go ahead and get creative with the Apollon camera.
