    People who are severely nearsighted or farsighted or people with astigmatism apparently can't refocus their eyes to allow the two discrete images to superimpose. Then there are some people who, for some unknown reason, can't see 3-D no matter what. Their eyesight is normal but, when they look at a 3-D picture they just don't see anything different.
    This is true. Many people who have trouble focusing their vision, and/or or who have difficulty aiming and coordinating the fixation and focal points of their two eyes, can have trouble seeing in 3D. in fact, most nearsighted people, to some extent, have a somewhat flattened view of depth, at least when wearing their glasses. The reason is that eyes often do not focus at the point at which they are aimed, and the mismatch is what causes the blurred and flattened vision. Glasses correct the focus, but there is often still a misalignment between vergence and accomodation (which are supposed to be calibrated to the same plane via a synkinesis). This is where the "clutz with glasses who can't catch a ball" stereotype emerged from.

    For anyone interested in sterovision, or anyone who has problems with it, there is a very interesting and informative book that you should read: http://www.fixingmygaze.com/ It's written by a neuroscientist who had strabismus which made it nearly impossible to achieve 3D vision until she had help from a neuro/behavioral specialist.

    Most of us have verying degrees of sufficient depth perception in general; good enough to get by most of the time, but still not quite perfect.

    Very interesting, B&W. I am nearsighted, and was one of those klutzes as a kid. I had a hard time with glasses. They never seemed right. Though I could see sharply, it often seemed like one eye could not work with the other at times. As I got older, that stopped being so much of a problem, and my hand-eye coordination became good. Maybe I learned to accommodate it.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    The whole 3D thing seems to me to be the latest distraction Hollywood has come up with to keep people from noticing that every movie is a remake. And not an improvement. Someone told me at the start of the HD TV craze that it was just so cool - you just HAVE to see a football game in HD. Really? Does it change who wins? I guess this is a sign that I'm edging towards being a curmudgeon. I want a good plot acted well and shot so it contributes to the story. 3D is not a part of that.

    Yeah, and color was a fad, so was cinemascope (wide screen movies for those who don't remember). But there were a lot of fads such as ToddAO, Cinerama (kinda like an anemic IMax with 2 vertical lines). Some make it and some don't. Unfortunately it is up to the public to decide!

    When I was a kid, we went to see How the West Was Won and another time It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. Both times I found it hard to keep up with everything as I kept swiveling my head to see the whole screen. I found the two stitch lines more distracting, though.

    Indeed, it is for the public to decide.

    The majority of people i speak to say that 3D makes them ill. But that is academic at the end of the day, because once a cinema replaces a [film] projector with digi - thats another film-out print which is not getting made. Uptake of digital cinema is low here in Australia because of the high capital outlay and low patronage by historical standards. Unless of course we factor in the Toy Story 3s and Avatars which are more of an anomaly than regular occurence.

    For now, i am happy that i have access to a great range of colour transparency films and an even bigger range of great B&W film. If one product is discontinued, i can use something else and still get the desired result i.e. an image.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't agree more...

    Though, I wouldn't mind watching 3D movies if they were made with great plots and were well casted/acted. But, we seem to be in a world where "it's all about the technological revolution," and not about the whole entire experience.

    Well, then, you're going to keel over in your chair when you read this!

    Yes, folks! It's a porno movie in 3-D! IMAX 3-D, no less!
    Bouncing boobs and male members, 20 feet tall and floating just inches in front of your face!

    It's a must see!



    If I'm not mistaken, IMAX 3D is a film process.

    BTW don't forget that unless you're in a premium cinema location, but in one of the secondary regional ones, you'll be watching a release print which has been made via an interpositive and dupe negative, not from the master cut neg. Generations count in an analogue workflow, as we APUGERs all know.

    Hmmm, I wonder if that will make it to my local IMAX......oh, no it won't, as it closed down 10 years ago due to its unpopularity... (& if you believe Boogie Nights, wasn't it the Porn industry that was the first to stray away from film )
