Several questions about 3D and one eye blindness...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am new to 3D and have several questions. Any help is much appreciated!

(1) I have a Samsung LN46C750 3D TV, a Panasonic DMP-BDT110 3D Blu-Ray player, and am thinking about getting a Onkyo HT-S5400 7.1 Channel Home Theater package that supports 3D pass through. What glasses are needed so that my wife can watch movies in 3D?

(2) I am just about completely blind in one eye. Therefore, 3D movies won't work for me since I am not able to see with both eyes. My understanding is that if you look at a 3D picture on a screen without glasses, it looks skewed/smeared because the two shifted images can be seen simultaneously. So, if I get whatever glasses are needed from question #1 above and just black out one side since I can't see out of that eye, will the movie just appear in regular 2D through my good eye. Basically,would I just see the image intended for my good eye side or is something else missing? I'm basically trying to find a way that my wife and I can enjoy a 3D movie together, but she will see it in 3D and I will [somehow] just be able to see it in 2D.

(3) Even though I have the equipment (TV, player, etc.), is it possible to play a 3D movie in regular 2D mode?

Thanks for the help in understanding 3D and how I can make it work for my wife and I. I appreciate it!

On question 2, yes, you'll see a normal 2D picture if you put on the glasses while the TV is in 3d mode. I wouldn't *guess* you'd have to block the other eye to view it comfortably and If you don't block out the other side, i wonder if you might pick up a mild sense of 3D, with what you can see in that eye.

Agree with Tory, above. In addition, the answer to question #3 is generally yes... most 3d blu-rays allow you to play back in 2d mode through a menu selection. The exception is most Disney films, which have separate discs for 2d & 3d.

Based on some research I've done since posting, it appears I need the Samsung active shutter glasses, either SSG-2100AB or SSG-2200AB. Can anybody confirm?

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, the vision that does exist is so far out of whack with the good eye, that it would probably best best to cover the lens on that side. Completely blurriness aside, the alignment is so out of whack that it's not possible to line it up with any correction method.

Thanks for the reply! Do you know if this option exists on the Avatar 3D disc?

Yes, it offers 2d or 3d.

As I'm sure you're aware, that disc is a Panasonic exclusive until at least February, so you'll need to look for one being auctioned/sold by someone online (the one available through retail channels is 2d only).

Luckily, I just got the Panasonic Blu-Ray player and it came with a mail-in rebate offer for Avatar 3D!
