DSC01671 3dsn Aerial X-3D - "Honey, Volkanzilla Shrunk the Homes" :) 6/12/07 - N view

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

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.

Wishing you best of luck for your success on this very simple to make yet amazingly rewarding technique.

Another great Volkanzilla miniature! Very interesting the fact that the houses in the wright of the picture are slightly illuminated by the sun, but the shifting time was so short that the effect is seen nearly simultaneously in both shots, wich adds a very nice touch to it

Hey Olivier, I agree it looks soo funny :D

Vasco, you have good eyes that sees every aspect of picture. Thanks for your kind comments. I am glad you liked too.

Best wishes,

How long should you wait, taking a 3D shot from a plane? A few seconds? I think I remember you saying it should be between 2 and 20 degrees difference?

(Sorry, I know practically nothing about it. I just learned how to view them cross-eyed a few days ago - naturally, now I want to learn to take them!)

Hi, necessary timing varies depending on airplane speed and altitude. It can vary from milliseconds to a minute. Regards, Volkan

Thanks much Takao-san :)

All these aerial 3D's are from regular passenger airplanes. Whenever possible I am communicating with the pilots prior to flight so that I can arrange a seat accordingly and hopefully get nice 3D pictures. But basically I am only a passenger with no special privileges like airline workers or VIPs would have. However as you perhaps can tell, I consider every flight as a mission for a planetary photographs as an alien would do ;)

The only exception is the 3D around Ephesus was not from passenger airplane. I was just very lucky fellow to be able to fly over there :D

Among us only Jessica has access to flight at will with her grandfather's single engine plane. She is doing great Jessicazilla shots :D

Cheers, Volkan
