We've had the Mexican water cops check our wristband- paid their diving fee- permits a few times, while out on the boats.
First I've heard about that! The only place I have yet to be hassled by the video permit in Mexico is Puerto Costa Maya, but then I have never seen any police there either. That whole port is run by the cruise ships so maybe they stay away. .

I think it has something to do with some fee for the underwater marine park. The dive operators add a couple of dollars onto their fee and that goes to the govt. The hospital type wristbands are some sort of proof that it has been paid. At least I think that is what it's all about. Not really a problem, and maybe even a good thing.

It's Mexico where the police are an entrepreneurial career. More likely it is a fee to line the pockets of the ones who have the authority to collect it.

Banggoods has a deal on the King 7S phone with 3D playback capability:

https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61928539

Looks like a good Lenticular 3D display smart phone. One drawback is it's 5.1 Android OS--old by today's standards.

Something for all you reef divers out there. A snorkeling system that takes you down into the water further, and less cumbersome than a SCUBA. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/n...m/x/16301143#/

The King 7S has a 3D center application on board and a 3D lenticular screen for showing 3D images and videos. It does not take 3D pictures. It requires a SBS image (MPO file) or SBS video input into it through the SD card. That's about all I know about it. I do not have one.

You can achieve a similar 3D image by purchasing a 3D phone case similar to this that has a lenticular screen built-into it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071VSFQCB/

They have them for iphones too. I have one of these. You have to input 3D images (MPO files) and videos though a 3D VR application you can find through iTunes or Play Store. I have used it once. I found it not easy to use, but it does give a reasonable 3D image.

Sorry, i asked about the snorkeling system, why do you linked here?

I have a new PPTV 7S since 2 weeks, and besides that is has a 1 pixel wide, black horizontal line, the ghosting is also very big from the best position.
Pictures with mid colors (not much contrast) are best. Videos stutters
Sharpness and colors are fine.

Haha, I thought you might have meant the snorkeling system. I simply posted it here as there are many reef divers who are also 3D video users. The snorkeling system is just another gadget that would make it easier to take 3D video underwater without having a lot of expensive SCUBA gear to carry around.


It sounds like the 7S has too many problems. The 3D screen case that I mentioned actually has a very good image, but you must be dead center to see it. Overall it works pretty good, but I found it a hassle to use as both a phone and a 3D player.

This is the most common 3D camera used for 3D snorkeling and SCUBA diving video: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/192-3...n-cameras.html. It is no longer in production, however, and can sometimes be found used on Amazon or Ebay. There are other 3D video cameras used that require a large case--and these are out of production as well. See Barry C's Avatar picture. The snorkeling system is just to get you under the water at a depth closer to the reefs. The cameras are separate and handheld of course, and must be water-sealed and capable of stereo video.

New SNAPCHAT 3D sunglasses do VR. Not sure of the view you get, but could be promising...IF you are okay looking like you just came from an Elton John concert...lol.

Here's more, just announced today: https://www.wired.com/story/snap-spectacles-3-glasses/

Another headset that can do 3D, but with 70° field. Touts a 3840x1080 image, but actually uses micro OLED 1920x1080 chips, so my guess you can still see some pixelization. Having a wide field without distortion, though, would be a plus.

This might be a good alternative for a 3D monitor. Also states it does 3DoF, so might be useful for gaming/VR.

Dangerously close to LUCID, just drop the D.

Second, how is it powered? No mention of power source. Also looks cheaply built despite the decent specs. I thing the PS VR looks better still. Specs are less but it's about half the price. 960x1080/eye (up to 120hz) vs 1920x1080/eye (60hz) on the LUICI.

This line intentionally left blank.

New AR glasses on Indiegogo.com support SBS 3D: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/d...-ar-theater/#/


They don't mention it on their site, so I had to ask what 3D it supports. With the see-through glasses, I don't think it's going to be satisfying watching a movie, etc. unless you are in the dark.
