Touching Mt. San Gorgonio
The photograph of Elliot Koeppel touching 13,000ft Mt. San Gorgonio, which is about 35 miles from Black Rock High View Trail, was simple enough but still took three tries to get it right. A 3D camera like the little Fuji 3D point-and-shoot device I use has the left and right lenses 3 inches apart. This simulates a person’s stereo vision. In 3D parlance the left lens is known as Left Eye and the right lens, Right Eye. Feature images at the top of the page were taken from the Right Eye dual image the camera creates.
The photos are in .MPO format. See 3D Basics for more detail. People who want to view the picture in 3D on a standard television screen or LCD computer monitor, do so by looking at an Anaglyph conversion (red and cyan/blue) through special viewing glasses. However, to see the full-color 3D effect requires use of a 3D enabled television set and a different pair of special viewing glasses. Here are sample images of Elliot from the final (best) shot of the day.
Notice the placement of Elliot’s pointing finger in these. Left Eye is from the left lens (#1) while the Right Eye is from the right lens (#2). Distance between the lenses is 3 inches.
