Panasonic's New Sensor Can Take 3D Photos with Normal Lenses

Panasonic 3D.jpg3D photography has been an evolving medium for some time, and in recent years things have picked up greatly. We've seen several different techniques for creating 3D photos, from specialized lenses to dual lens cameras; but Panasonic has something new in store.

The new sensor that Panasonic has created allows photographers to use whatever type of lens they choose and still get a 3D image. The sensor uses a lenticular lens, much like those used in glasses-free 3D displays. The problem with the sensor is the same as the problem with these glasses-free displays - there's a significantly limited distance where the photos will work. We'll see if this is something Panasonic can solve once these sensors make it to mass production.
