Kodak DC20 3D conversion (© David G Burder, FRPS)

Kodak DC20 3D version (1997)

David Burder, Technical Director of 3-D Images Ltd., launched the company's first 3-D Digital Stereo camera, at Focus '97, the UK's primary Photographic Imaging trade show. The camera is a true stereo camera, giving full synchronized, single button release, side by side stereo pairs of images, as in a traditional stereo camera. The camera is a conversion by 3-D Images Ltd., and is based on the body & electronics of a pair of Kodak DC20 cameras. The camera is fully automatic and time synchronized. David Burder selected the Kodak DC20 camera as the basis for the conversion, as it offered the neatest design, with the most convenient internal layout, for conversion. The picture below therefore is not photoshopped but very real. The camera was marketed along with a lorgnette 3-D viewer and 50 pairs of anaglyph 3-D spectacles.
Special thanks to David Burder for reproduction of text and image.
