LG Optimus 3D: Recording, Viewing and Sharing 3D



LG Optimus 3D, one of the first, if not the first mobile to feature 3D is built on a Tri-Dual Architecture -Dual-Core, Dual-Channel and Dual-Memory. It has 4.3-inch WVGA screen capable of showing HD contents in both 2D and 3D. This phone can convert normal photos and videos into 3D as well.

Before we go deeper into further technical aspects of this latest amazing smartphone, let’s first tackle ‘the 3D experience.’


Viewing 3D without glasses was I thought a pain, but perhaps, it is just normal for first-timers to adjust, tilt the phone to one’s preferred 3D angle. The content is best viewed at the optical sweet spot which is 30-40cm in front of the screen. The LCD uses a series of slits on the front of the screen that block light so that users' left and right eyes see different images. Hence, no need to the traditional 3D glasses. Now I’m seeing it perfectly – 99% flicker free.



Thanks to the phone’s preloaded 3D contents  (3D Space) I’ve had a quick first-hand experience to view 3D with my bare eyes.  It has 3D Games and Apps, 3D Gallery, 3D Camera of course that comes with a 3D Guide.  The 3D Guide is graphically enhanced to, well, “guide” you in Creating, Viewing, Sharing and Connecting.  The graphics of the 3D Games are stunning. You’d be able to feel the depth of the video, or photo sliding into your hands. Definitely cool!



Creating
Of course you can shoot your own photos and videos in 3D. It’s just a matter of switching 2D or 3D in the camera options. It’s got dual 5MP cameras at the back to do that.  When shooting, the best distance to observe between the camera and the subject is around 0.5 – 2m. The results are unbelievably perfect. You can share them as 3D with your pals if they have a 3D-capable device, else you can convert them into 2D to share it everywhere.


The experience with the preloaded 3D games is totally awesome
How about playing Angry Birds in 3D hey!
Sharing in Youtube
Youtube will automatically recognize and add a 3D icon to all 3D videos you’ve created. There’s a Youtube 3D in case some of us are not aware of. Go to http://www.youtube.com/3D

Connecting
You can use either HDMI 1.4 to connect on a 3D TV or connect using DLNA to other gadgets



Youtube's 3D channel is in the 3D Space
The 3D experience in overall is pretty impressive. There’s more to LG Optimus 3D that I’ll share in my next posts.
