Sony NEX-5 and NEX-3 get 3D update
Sweep panorama mode gets 3D upgrade - just be sure you've got 3D telly so you can play back your handiwork.
Sony’s stellar NEX-5 and NEX-3 snappers are getting a 3D upgrade, with new firmware letting you take snaps in three dimensions on the all-new cameras.
The 3D Sweep Panorama mode builds on the basic Sweep Panorama feature, stitching together a number of shots to create a wide angle view. All you need to do is move the camera from one side to the other and the NEX-5 or NEX-3 will do the rest.
Of course, looking back at these pics requires a 3D source, so you’ll either need one of Sony’s 3D Bravias or a compatible 3D telly. Which all means that while the firmware is free, you’re still going to need to dig up a minimum of two grand to take pride in your 3D images.
