Learn more on 2D+Depth in our June 15, 2011 paper.

Red Scarlet Video Review
The RED ScarletX 4K camera is a wise choice to equip a 3D mirror rig for cinema shooting. But it is new, and not well known yet. This may change fast, and a new two-part video review by Cinema 5D will help many of us understand how the new RED is working. Watch it here under.
LE-3D Stereoscopic Color Legaliser
Eyeheight (Watford, UK) has chosen BVE 2012 as the UK launch venue for the world’s first dual-channel stereoscopic 3D video legaliser.
The LE-3D allows legalisation parameters for left and right video channels to be adjusted from a single operating panel to ensure precise compliance with internation color and brightness standards.
GoPRO Hyperstereoscopic shooting
If you buy one of the new stereoscopic GoPRO 3D HERO kits, you are limited to the 45 mm fixed interaxial of the dual waterproof housing. To shoot landscapes or other far away subjects, you will need a larger stereo base (a.k.a. interaxial distance, a.k.a. IoD). So in order to take hyperstereoscopic shots you have to bolt a couple of standard GoPRO housings on a rigid alumimium ruler and extend the electric connection between both cameras. Details and video samples here under.
The stereoscopic HD 3D Hero kit costs 99.99$ without the cameras, but is provided with a lot of accessories. The cameras may be GoPRO HD HERO or GoPRO HD Hero 2.
