Did your mind ever wander in search of the question that why are GIFs(Graphics Interchange Format) images so popular these days? Whatever the image may be, for a second or two a live picture or a gif is the one that often grabs our attention among other 2-dimensional images. Isn’t it something that draws us towards the fantasy world of Harry Potter? Remember Hogwarts portraits that are able to talk and move around from picture to picture. RETO3D, a stereo camera for 3D photography is not that but will surely bring back that nostalgia.
Now, let’s come straight to the point. If you are someone who loves film photography and wish to experience something new and exciting in the same then you shouldn’t miss out on RETO3D.
The crowdfunding campaign for RETO3D has already been 256% funded with the help of 590 backers and is still live with 18 days remaining. You can get one for yourself for HK$ 620(around Rs 5,500)
RETO3D in creator’s own words
“As 3D photography is a specific type of film photography, most film users may not be aware of its existence. The market is lacking a 3D camera and its price in the second-hand market is unacceptably high. We analysed the old stereo cameras and improved the design of ours. RETO3D is small and lightweight, affordable and easy-to-use. It has a built-in flash and it’s film-saving! We are also developing an APP for users to make GIFs much easier, which resolves the complicated and time-consuming process of using PhotoShop.”
This is how it works and creates those eye-catching GIFs for you
RETO3D operates under a triple-lens system, takes 3 half-frame images simultaneously with 3 different angles. For a film roll with 36 exposures, one could get 24*3D images.
