Loreo 3D Lens Brings Antique Stereoscopy to the Digital Age

Loreo 3D Lens in a Cap

Remember those 3D picture viewers when you were a kid? (No, not you, twenty-something; I mean you, 50-something!) There was Superman and Batman and all the other ancient Disney characters that you could flip and see in three-dimensional splendor through a viewing glass (plastic, really) called View-Master.

Well, that technology has been updated and brought to the digital age by Loreo Asia Limited by introducing their 3D Lens in a Cap.

This thing – a 38mm lens basically with an F11 or F22 aperture – fits on most film or digital SLR cameras. It takes two images of the same scene with slightly different perspectives to match what a pair of human eyes would see.

Viewed on a 3D viewer, the stereoscopic image appears three-dimensional, almost like seeing the original scene in front of your eyes. Stereoscopy of course is nothing new; it dates back to the 19th century, back when John Tyler was president of the United States (1841).
