Sony 3D single lens

September 5, 2009

Sony has shown off a new single-lens camera able to capture 3D images.

The new camera takes a single image that is split by mirrors and recorded on two sensors, resulting in a “smoother” picture, according to Sony. The prototype camera will be unveiled at next week’s Ceatec electronics show in Tokyo, Japan.

Viewers will be able to watch the 3D images using special polarised glasses. Without them, they will just see normal 2D television.

The firm said the camera, which is able to capture images very quickly, is especially suited to sporting events.
