LG Optimus 3D camera samples

LG Optimus 3D camera samples
We couldn't resist snapping a few images and a video with the 3D mode on the LG Optimus 3D at the CTIA show. Having control over the third spatial dimension from a phone in your hand that is commercially available to purchase just as you would any other phone, is a sci-fi addict dream come true.

While the frame was only of the booth and the expo floor, the 3D imagery can give you a hint what to expect from the stereoscopic dual lens 5MP camera on the back. Who would have thought that 3D can be as noisy in low-light conditions as plain vanilla 2D pictures and video? We kid, but the heritage itself is somewhat comforting, easing our way into the unknowns of the third dimension.

We uploaded some 3D stills taken with the stereoscopic camera for your viewing pleasure, which you can download from here.

Bear in mind they are in the .JPS format, so you have to Google for one of the free .JPS viewers out there in order to see the 3D photography in its full swing. On a side note, the LG Thrill 4G that is coming for AT&T is a rebadged version of that same Optimus 3D we are testing here, so expect its camera samples to look quite similar to these.

Have a look at the 3D video we shot with the LG Optimus 3D below, and prepare to watch cross-eyed, or with your old pair of red&blue paper glasses we are sure is tucked somewhere in your drawer. It's not perfectly superimposed, but the quality is more than acceptable, considering the conditions we shot the video at.

The 3D stills are broken, the right image in all of them is wrong so you won't get any 3D effect.

I played around with this at an AT&T store, and I wasn't impressed. The 3D camera doesn't sync up the images properly, and you will hardly notice any 3D effects. There is a small 3D interface that can be launched, and it works fairly well. I would recommend the Atrix or Galaxy S over this.
