The First 3D Lens Compatible with all SLR Cameras

First 3D Lens Compatible with all SLR Cameras

The technology used by 3D printers is very close to us, since anyone can have a 3D printer at home for their use and enjoyment. These machines offer infinite possibilities when creating the objects we want, also saving a lot of time during the manufacturing process. In addition, they allow you to create materials that are much more resistant and flexible than many that are obtained from nature.

3D printing has made work easier for many companies and companies, making very useful materials. This time it was a photographer who created 3D printed glasses that allow you to take 3D photos, something new for photography.

Lenses that create three-dimensionality

These lenses can make the camera capture snapshots of stereoscopic motion, a technique that places frames on top of each other creating a 3D image.

Stereoscopy is a way of creating depth in two-dimensional images, making it appear to have a three-dimensional effect. This is achieved by very quickly combining photos that are very similar to each other, but not the same.

For now, the effect was only possible to create on older film cameras, but 3D printing technology now allows any SLR camera to have this three-dimensional effect.

To achieve this effect with a camera before, two or more images had to be taken with at least two lenses at the same time. This technology dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, but 30 or so years ago cameras that offered this 3D effect began to go on sale by having more than one lens.

Higher quality photos

This new 3D printed lens makes it possible for a digital SLR camera to achieve the three-dimensional effect for the first time. It consists of three lenses of 3 centimeters each that offer different perspectives of an image. These perspectives can then be positioned manually to give the effect of three-dimensionality.

In addition, its creator ensures that with these lenses the images come out with higher quality , since the light that enters through the camera will be harder, which will cause less dispersion between the pixels of the image.

Therefore, 3D printing technology does not cease to amaze us and it has been this time in the world of photography where this innovation has taken place. However, there are many more areas and fields in which 3D printers are helping hundreds of companies to improve when it comes to innovation.
