The Lucidcam is a 3D VR 180 degree camera - it is not just a 3D camera. It will give you a VR perspective that no consumer 3D camera (made for the days of 3D Blu-Rays/Television) will provide. It's...

I spent enough time looking at VR type cameras at CES and left underwhelmed. Anything less than 60fps is nauseating.

At the show, they had a side-by-side comparison of a "no name" (couldn't discern who it was from, behind a case) OLED and their ULED TV, and while the brightness appears to have been turned down on...

I am backing the Lucidcam, but I have a very specific use in mind. Hoping the quality is there, as I only need 180 degree viewing.

The intended viewing will be with VR goggles (Oculus) or with the cheap cardboard (or plastic) and using your phone (iPhone or Samsung Galaxy).

Side note - if you're on a Mac, I've been using DSD Master to convert multichannel DSD files to wav (FLAC is an option to). Costs $30 for the program, but well worth it for me.

We're talking in circles here. You're misinterpreting what I'm saying as if I were suggesting AVCHD 2.0 over Blu-Ray standards (720p/60, 1080p/24). I'm not suggesting that at all. I am fully aware...

My bad Joe, I did forget about this camera. Kept thinking of the higher end $20k camera.

But I'd say 1080i/60 s3D for an final output format is dead.
