LucidCam Stereoscopic 3D Point and Shoot Camera

1Share

Stereography, or stereo photography, harks back the 1800s, so it is not exactly a new idea. However, LucidCam’s Stereoscopic 3D point and shoot camera makes shooting stereo stills and video as simple as pulling out your old point-and-shoot and pressing the shutter release. Pocket-sized so it’s ready at a moment’s notice, the camera captures stereo images with its built-in twin 1.39mm lenses, producing an image with a 180° field of view, left to right and top to bottom, so almost nothing can escape your frame—remember to watch out for your toes.

Built-in image stabilization helps reduce camera shake, and spares you the need to post-process your footage to reduce or remove camera shake. Your videos can get out into the world that much faster and, with a stabilized image, are much less likely to induce nausea in your viewers. Also, when considering the advantages of the built-in stabilization, let’s not forget the difficulty of post image stabilization on two video streams and what that would do to the quality and resolution of your footage. Since I’ve touched on resolution, it is worth mentioning that the camera shoots stills in 4K resolution and video in 2K, and dual mics provide stereo sound, enhancing the 3D feel of your footage. The camera captures to readily available microSD cards up to 32GB capacity, and if you fill one up, not to worry about having to stop to change cards—the camera has 32GB of internal storage.

Of course, shooting is only half the fun; it is watching and sharing that really make an impact. LucidCam has you covered here, because you can connect to a live streaming service, watch with Google cardboard, download compatible apps, or use Lucid’s own app to view your footage on an Android or iOS device. So, from start to finish, capture to display, the LucidCam Stereoscopic 3D Point and Shoot Camera brings stereo imaging out of the 19th Century.
