"The attraction of the Panasonic camera was that it allows crews new to 3D to concentrate on the 3D format of the footage as well as traditional elements of film-making. We were able to avoid having to get to grips with a two-camera system, since Panasonic’s device incorporates two lenses. Our aim was to achieve a ‘real’ viewing experience rather than a gimmicky one. In addition, Panasonic’s system was fairly easy to use and carried out much of the work which would otherwise have to be done by a convergence puller but you still need a stereographer."
"It’s just as important to view 3D footage on an appropriate device. For our shoot, we played the initial results through a 65-inch ‘active’ Panasonic screen at Top Teks with active shutter glasses and the picture detail was stunning – it really leapt out at us! Since then we’ve viewed the footage on YouTube 3D, where some of the 3 dimensional quality is unavoidably lost. Passive screens (at the movies), viewed with tinted glasses, are now more popular, but the resolution is not as good as on active shutter glasses displays."

Real Property Tours are now testing a two-camera 3D beam splitter rig with two Sony EX3’s before offering two 3D filming packages to residential agents, developers and hoteliers.
Real Impact Productions offers 3D video capture to their corporate, advertising and civil engineering clients.
Lee added, "We’ve learned a lot from the initial filming about 3D and the next test filming means we can push our equipment further to deliver even more stunning results."
