LOREO 3D Lens in a Cap 9005

The new subframe 3D Lens in a Cap 9005, in development since 2007, is a sports and portrait 3D lens. The lens has a focal length of 40mm and a stereo base of (interoaxial distance) of 90mm. There is a version for APS-C format subframe digital SLR cameras and one for 4:3 and Micro 4:3 format subframe digital SLR cameras.

Parallax Compensation

3D photographers will be familiar with trying to take closeup photographs with wide image pitch 3D devices. The 3D effect depends on the parallax between left and right images, but too much parallax makes for unnatural 3D, which is difficult to fuse. A 3D lens with a 50mm stereo base is very good for 3D photographs in which the subject is 1.5 - 3 meters away (around 4.5 to 9.5 feet). At the same distance, a 90mm stereo base 3D lens would produce image pairs with excessive parallax, where left and right images are too wide apart to fuse. The 50mm stereo base lens however would not be capable of producing spectacular 3D at 5 meters or more away.

The 3D Lens in a Cap 9005 has a focus coupled Parallax Compensation system. When the lens is focused on a subject at a given distance, the image pitch is automatically adjusted within the unit itself to suit the object distance. This works from 1.5m to infinity. The adjustment of the relative positions of the image pair can be viewed in the viewfinder, or with Live View in modern digital SLR cameras. Once a user learns how to use the lens, focusing can actually be done by parallax compensation alone. When the subject appears in the same relative position in both the left and right image in the viewfinder, it will automatically be in focus.

Accessories

The 9005 is also equipped with a pair of 58mm filter threads in the front, which can be used for attaching converters, filters and hoods. Lightweight accessories are strongly recommended. Wide angle and tele converters should be selected with care, preferably matched to the 3D lens at purchase. Avoid using converters with too small an optical diameter at the back, as this may cause vignetting.

4:3 and Micro 4:3 subframe format

On Olympus and Panasonic Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds digital SLR cameras, the 2:1 FOV crop factor brings the effective focal length to 80mm on the vertical side of the image frame, making the 9005 a telephoto 3D lens.

With a pair of 1.45x converters, the effective focal length on 4:3 format units becomes 116mm. The wide image pitch (90mm) allows for excellent 3D photographs to be taken from 5 meters or more away.

APS-C subframe format

The 1.5x / 1.6x FOV crop factor brings the effective focal length to 60mm on the vertical side of the image frame. For APS-C format, there are very few tele converters with a sufficient inner diameter to avoid vignetting. Photos taken with tele converters on APS-C format 9005 lenses will most likely need to be cropped afterwards.

Stereo Base: 90 mm (distance between the two light paths)
Digital SLR body mounts: 2nd generation Loreo SLR mounts available for Canon EOS, Nikon F, Minolta AF / Sony Alpha, Samsung GX / Pentax K. For Olympus / Panasonic Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds format version please see the 4:3 specifications.
Digital SLR compatibility: Canon EOS D30, D60, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, Rebel 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D 1000D, 7D (Canon EOS mount) - Most Canon SLR cameras work with the Loreo 3D lenses in auto-metering mode, but exposure bias should be set to -1.5 or -2. The 300D has flash exposure bias disabled, but it is known that people have found ways to re-enable it.

Nikon D1, D1X, D1H, D2H, D2X, D100, D200, D300, D2H, D40, D40X, D50, D60, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D300, D3000, D5000 (Nikon mount) - Nikon digital SLRs work with Loreo 3D lenses in manual mode. In most Nikon digital SLRs, over-exposure is shown on the LCD screen after a picture has been taken. This function can be used in place of auto-metering.

Pentax *ist D, *ist DS, DS2, DL, DL2, K-x, K2000, K-7, K-m (Pentax K) are compatible.
Pentax K10D, K20D, K100D, K110D, K200D are not compatible because they have a large flash housing which does not fit the 9005 lens.
- most Pentax SLR cameras work with Loreo Lens in a Cap products in auto-metering mode.

Fuji Finepix S1 Pro, S2 Pro, S3 Pro, S5 Pro (Nikon mount)- Fuji digital SLRs work with the Nikon mount Loreo 3D lenses in manual mode.

Minolta Maxxum 5D, 7D (Minolta AF mount) - require shutter lock to be disabled. Minolta digital SLRs work with Loreo 3D lenses in automatic metering mode. When set to "P", the exposure compensation needs to be set to -1.5 stops. When set to "A" (aperture control), exposure compensation does not need to change. The anti-shake feature improves lighting conditions by 1-2 stops.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 and A700 (Minolta AF mount) - require the shutter lock to be disabled. These cameras were developed jointly with Minolta. The Sony Alpha Lens mount is compatible with Minolta AF lenses. Loreo subframe 3D Lenses are known to work with these cameras. The Alpha A100 and A700 work with Loreo lenses in automatic mode. The anti-shake feature improves lighting conditions by 1-2 stops. The A200, A230, A300, A330, A350, A500, A550, A850, A900 (Minolta AF mount) do not have a separate feature to disable the shutter lock. The camera has to be put into manual focus mode (MF).

Samsung GX-1S (Pentax K mount, untested)
