Videomaker is a great place to work for many reasons. Not the least of which is that our attention is frequently called to some pretty cool videos; videos shot by both novices and pros, and videos shot on everything from a smartphone and consumer cameras to professional and prosumer level camcorders. So it's no wonder our interest was peaked recently when some new video came across the desk from a renowned videographer and photographer creating some great work in 3D.
Photographer and visual artist David McLain has done some terrific work over the years. His keen eye for stunning visual imagery and composition can be seen in both his photo and video work. David's partnership with Sony means that his portfolio includes some pretty beautiful 3D work. Using a Sony Bloggie and an HDR-TD10 Handycam, David's artistic eye and technical acumen are equally on display. Check these videos out on the Sonyelectronics YouTube channel.
Obviously, consumer-level 3D video continues to progress by leaps bounds and the technology will continue to grow rapidly in sophistication. As it does, video enthusiasts and professional videographers alike will keep apace. The Sony channel featuring David McLain's work includes an example of family vacation video shot in 3D. While many of us might not yet immediately think 3D at the same time as family vacation home movies, the technology is there waiting for us when we do.
Videomaker has reviewed both the Bloggie and the TD10 Handycam, so if you're interested in learning more about these cameras, check these reviews. And if you've done some innovative work in 3D yourself, be sure to let us know. Send us a note or post an entry in the Videomaker Forum. We're always looking for the latest and greatest to cross our desks.
