    I've not heard much about the Sony Alpha 3D Camera, so I've posted this snippet of information I found in case others are interested in it:

    Is anyone planning on getting one of these?

    I have a NEX-5. Produces great images that I can view on a 3D TV or in side by side mode. Camera produces MPO and JPEG files. 3D images are produced wille panning from left to right. Process takes about 5 seconds so the subject must be still.

    No. The camera I have and was talking about id the Sony NEX 5. I think the NEX 3 will also do stereo but I'm not positive the NEX 3 will.

    The camera is great. It is really compact, offers array of lenses, and takes as good a picture as any camera I've ever had. I've had a bunch of SLR cameras over the years and have a Nicon D5000 but the D5000 has sat in the closet ever since I got the NEX 5. The NEX 5 also takes great video. Now my HD video camera sits next to my Nicon in the closet.


    Sony has upgraded the camera with free firmware upgrades that can be downloaded. I just upgraded to version 4 firmware.


    I think that the stereo feature on the camera was in one of the earlier firmware upgrades.


    The NEX 5 probably won't replace any of your existing stereo cameras because it has to be panned for stereo resulting in a "long" exposure time, but the stereo pictures I have taken with the camera have worked out great so far.


    The camera's not cheap, but I highly recommend it.

    I probably will sell them at some point. I need the Nicon because I have a nice telephoto lens for it and I don't have one for the NEX 5 yet. The tele lens for the Sony is pretty expensive. I also miss the viewfinder that I have on the Nicon and not on the Sony.
