James Cameron’s film, Avatar, has helped propel 3D technology into the mainstream. People flocked to theaters to see the 3D attraction and now they’re buying the Blu-ray edition in droves. I read today that
US consumers have spent more than $55 million on 3D TVs and Blu-ray players in just a few months, but I'd bet the equipment that James Cameron used to produce Avatar cost even more. The average 3D enthusiast could never afford to use Cameron’s highly refined 3D camera equipment, but fortunately there’s a much more affordable alternative.
