Paper Abstract

The art of stereoscopic cinematography has been held back because of the lack of a convenient way to reduce the stereo camera lenses' interaxial to less than the distance between the eyes. This article describes a unified stereoscopic camera and lens design that allows for varying the interaxial separation to small values using a unique electro-optical polarizing aperture design for imaging left and right perspective views onto a large single digital sensor (the size of the standard 35mm frame) with the means to select left and right image information. Even with the added stereoscopic capability the appearance of existing camera bodies will be unaltered.
