    Was down in Sydney on the long weekend and took a walk around The
    Rocks. Thought I'd have some fun making some cross-eye
    stereograms.

    This was probably my fav. Just some beergarden:

    This one I liked too. Anchor from Sirius - one of the First
    Fleet ships:

    Hope you can see them. For me they're easy.

    Easy for me, too. They were all excellent.

    Yup.
    They're fine. Resolve well.

    (I'm sure we've had this conversation before, but...)

    Did you use one camera, and two shots with a slightly moved position?
    (I ask only because I have a rig with two identical P&Ss mounted on a
    bracket - works great!)

    Tripod or hand-held?
    Approx what separation? More than 100mm?

    Fun, idn' it!

    yeah, good stuff, Troy.
    Looks like the lousy weather
    didn't stop you from having a
    go at some shots.
    Well done.

    I'm not very familiar with this technique and I can't seem to "lock
    in" the stereo view. I'm probably not doing it properly. Any
    instructions please?


    Cheers, Phred.

    They are the are the wong way around ..
    I have taken numerous 3D pics with a decicated 3d camera
    take a look at the edge of the pillar the left hand should have the
    background further to the right
    the edge of the pillar the right eye lines the edge with point a
    left eye lines the edge with point b

    They are not the wrong way around if you view them cross eyed.

    All just hand-held. Just took one shot, then moved to the right
    by a 100mm or so. They're usually just spur of the moment
    things, not planned or anything. Just see something that I think
    may look cool in 3D :)

    Thanks mate. The weather was pretty crap. Didn't even bother
    with the usual Harbour Bridge or Opera House shots. Took the
    tripod down and didn't even use it. Next time.

    Just stare at the vertical edge between the 2 shots and make
    yourself go slightly cross-eyed. You make your right eye view
    the left image and your left eye view the right. Takes a bit of
    practise. Make sure your head is horizontal, not tilted right or
    left. When you cross your eyes, a 3D image should appear in
    the middle of the 2 shots. You need to gradually cross your eyes
    until it comes into focus.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Bob. They're not the wrong way around for cross-eye
    stereograms. The image you are supposed to see with your right
    eye should be on the left, and left eye on the right. Are you
    viewing cross-eyed or something else?

    Uh Bob, pls don't top post, and esp. don't put "--" after a top post as
    that kills the rest of the message. Context, all that, pip pip.

    So, what drugs am I supposed to use while viewing these cross-eyed?

    Very easy here too. What's a bit harder is to maintain focus
    while zooming in. It would be nice if stereo viewing software
    existed (using two images instead of one composite) that would make
    it easy to zoom in and view any part of the image, instead of just
    the central portion. All of the shots were very good, but img_8239
    seemed to me to show the stereo effect most effectively. Thanks!

    Thanks for looking. I thought the same thing about that shot.

    Must admit I find it funny that people are staring at their
    monitors forcing themselves cross-eyed to look at these :D

    spent the late arvo in Narrabeen lagoon entrance getting some shots
    of the sunset and a big front that was coming through.
    Should come up nicely, once I get the film done.
    Couldn't do much more: did my back in on Friday,
    carrying concrete bags...
