DSC08700 Zion National Park in X-3D - E view

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

If you like to see this scene in dazzling 3D, please cross your eyes until left and right images overlap in the center. The center area should appear in 3D. You can also copy the entire image and paste it to Stereo Photo Maker for full screen viewing with zoom and pan ability or changing the 3D viewing technique. This image pair from a lava cave or the purple lotus flower is good for beginners due to their simplicity.

As you may have noticed, these images are simply taken with some offset distance between them with a regular digital camera. Therefore it is also possible for you to use your regular camera to start making your own stereoscopic 3D photographs with the mentioned software and share.

Great 3D effect! The new 3D photos are fantastic!

Could you tell me what was the distance between the two shots? And how far was the rock from the camera?

Thanks a lot, Árpád from Hungary

Hi Arpad, thank you very much for your comment. I am glad you enjoyed it. As you may have already realized this is very high-res X-3D so you can explore more details using SPM. If you'd be interested, here are my Utah photos.

Lets say the mountains were about 2km away. When I feel that the distance is as such, then I try to do about at least 50m or more between two shots while keeping the vertical shift to minimal. Of course dept of the scene also is a factor. But I am sure in time as you do more long range X-3D, you'd gain your sense on shift distance like rest of us did.

Best wishes from Izmir, Volkan

Thanks for the explanation, I also like to make 3D pictures, but in my location there are no mountains (unfortunately). I try to take 3D photos from a nearer objects. Please visit them, if you have time!

Greetings, Árpád

Your Utah photos are very attractive, i like them. You're lucky living near to this great place:-)

Thank you much Arpad. I live very far from Utah but I feel very lucky to be there even for a short time. You may like this recent X-3D from my home country. Best wishes, Volkan
