Sony’s Latest Single Lens 3D Camera

The Explore Media Group team is very excited to have this groundbreaking opportunity as we are at the CEATEC Exhibition in Tokyo, Japan where Sony will unveil their first ever professional single lens 3D camera. We are in touch with the Sony crew and will be bringing you a video interview from CEATEC on this shortly. Stay tune to our Twitter, Facebook,  or RSS Feed or visit That 3D Guy at 3DGuy.tv

Sony Corporation announced the development of a single lens 3D camera technology capable of recording natural and smooth 3D images of even fast-moving subject matter such as sports, at 240fps (frames per second). This technology combines a newly developed optical system for single lens 3D camera which captures the left and right images simultaneously, together with existing high frame rate (HFR) recording technology to realize 240fps 3D filming.

Optical tests have shown that a frame rate 240fps represents the limit of human visual perception, and beyond that it becomes difficult to detect differences in terms of blur and “jerkiness” of moving images (where images that were continuous are now seen as a series of distinct snapshots). By developing a 240fps frame rate CMOS image sensor with properties close to the human eye, which is capable of capture natural images of even fast moving subject matter, Sony has succeeded in further enhancing the quality of 3D video images.
