Royal Wedding to be broadcast in 3D

The only other news I’ve heard about 3D TV lately is that the Royal Wedding in England next spring may be broadcast in 3D, so in England, the TV retailers are hoping for a big boost in sales of 3D sets in the next few months leading up to the event.

I have seen more 3D digital cameras for sale in the past few weeks, by Panasonic I think, and an adapter lens you can add to your video camera, but I forget the brand, so you can take your own 3D movies.

I think part of that problem will be the closeness of the lenses to try and reproduce the 3D effect your own eyes produce. That’s fine for objects that are close, but once objects are beyond 30 or 40 feet, the difference between 3D and 2D is not too great… the effect is pretty much lost.

If you could increase the distance between the lenses capturing the data to the same ratio as the distance between your eyes, an object between 2 and 20 feet away from your own eyes produce excellent 3D vision.
