E-mail discussion lists related to 3D Photography

A. General 3D Photo Lists - English Language

List Description List Host


This list is for discussion of true stereoscopic images. Computer generated image creation discussion is permitted, as long as it results in true (two eyed) depth representation. General topics of discussion include cameras, stereoview collecting/creation, stereoscopic displays, uses of true stereo imagery, and so forth. Y


This list is for buy/sell/swap of 3D photographic items. "Commercial" ads and notifications are permitted here. This list should be used to offer items rather than the main photo-3d list. Y


The tech-3d mailing list carries heavily technical discussions (optics, formulae, etc) of true 3D photographic imaging, usually math intensive. Y


A list for discussion of topics specifically related to Medium Format stereo images (Sputnik, twin 120 roll film cameras, etc).  See http://www.pauck.de/archive/mailinglist/mf3d/info.html for subscription instructions. UNH
anaglyph Anaglyphs are 3-D stereoscopic images that can either be printed in books, projected, or shown on a monitor. Special colored glasses are required to view them. Everything related to anaglyph 3-D stereo images is encouraged for discussion on this list. From collecting 3-D comic books to creating your own photographic anaglyphs! The list owner hopes this forum will help promote the often maligned art of anaglyph 3-D stereo imaging, and also have some fun in the process! Y
3DSalon The objective of this list is "to promote and encourage participation in stereo image exhibitions". Examples of postings that are acceptable: 1) Reminders of deadlines of Stereo Salons. 2) Posting of 3d salon results or web references where results can be found. 3) Details and encouragement on how to start a stereo salon. 4) Advice and feedback from organizers of stereo salons 5) Eyewitness reports from PSA Salon showings 6) Words of wisdom from judges 7) Questions and answers on topics related to stereo salons. - Discussions on stereo techniques are not really appropriate as there is another discussion list devoted to these issues (see photo-3d above), unless they are related to stereo exhibitions. Y
3D-Glamourphoto This is a forum to discuss the techniques and methods for producing 3D "stereographic" photos and videos of an artistic, adult, erotic, or glamour nature. Photographers and videographers can swap tips and discuss other issues related to the use of stereophotography in the fashion, glamour, artistic nude, erotic, or adult marketplace. The focus of this forum is on technique and methods discussion - portfolio exchanges are welcome. Models and photographers may post example images and the like. Y
macro3d This list is for discussing all topics related to macro stereo photography. This includes any camera set up from single SLR to RBT, DeWijs, and Ekeren attachments to SEM and light microscopes. Members are encouraged to post images in the files section to share with the group. Y
ViewMaster This list is dedicated to the discussion of View-Master and other 3-D Stereo subjects. If you are an avid collector or are even remotely interested in View-Master, please join this group. Please feel free to contact Mary Ann Sell for more info about joining this list or about View-Master history in general. We have weekly chat discussions on Thursdays from 8-9:30 p.m. EST. New collectors and old will benefit from this group. Y
