I have always wondered when someone will make a camera with two lenses, two shutters, two sensors...on one body. Maybe just one sensor where the combined images come together to make the 'perfect' shot. Maybe it is a crazy idea, but it seems like if a camera could 'see' things the way we see things, it might add some positive qualities. We don't have two eyes just so we'll always have a spare! :-) Our two eyes give us depth judgement, more peripheral vision, better focusing ability... Call me crazy; I just think too much!

You mean something like this:



just google stereo camera and you will find a lot of info on these cams and even how to make one. They were quite popular in the sixties-seventies, nothing really new here :-). Used to shoot some stereo pairs both on film camera and electron microscope about 20 years ago - lots of fun viewing them :-)

Well, thankyou. I wish I could see some of those 'pairs'? The cameras look really weird; dont' they?
