3 D Snapshots on your TV
Got your Special Glasses?
Sony is marketing 3 D televisions and cameras. Another shift towards the use of the screen as the primary photographic snapshot device in the home.
Woe to the standard printed 4’’x6’’ printed snapshot.
Some of the Sony still cameras capture Panographic images in a unique ‘sweep’ fashion. The user chooses this mode, begins the exposure at the edge of the scene and moves the camera to the other edge of the scene while the device fires multiple exposures quickly. Resolution is low for these images, printing results in a 10 inch width for photo quality.
With the overwhelming preference for screen display in the home shifting to the Panorama display ratio (16×9, Cinemascope / Superscope) will the panorama format become the default for snapshots and home movies?
I think it already is – Still camera manufacturers are building digital SLR’s that capture high quality 1280p video.
Hybridization of the motion media standard with the still media technology. Capture at windscreen size and present at wide screen size on screen. Solutions for long terms storage will be determined as technologies change, as usual.
We have photo-processing kiosks in our grocery stores, and each town maybe has a holdout photography store. Disk Burners spinning, Printers idling.
