3D NEWS WINTER 2015/2016
Our custom made viewmaster reels are immensely popular. We are doing many projects every month. We just delivered 250 Viewmasters with custom reels to an insurance organisation in The Netherlands. All done in top quality and top speed in the 3D-Studio in Zwolle, The Netherlands.

3D summernews from www.3dworldshop.com
In the summer the 3D projects at www.3dworldshop.com continue also. This is not only the time to create beautiful 3D pictures but also to make publish them in a fun, interesting and catchy way. For promotion or just to share something special. We completed several View-Master projects the last month. We want to mention two here. Esveco Specialties from Molenaarsgraaf (Holland) is a special printer that more than just printwork. They realize very special promotional products. 3DWORLDSHOP.COM made 60 pieces custom View-Master discs for Esveco. Also 40 original Viewmaster viewers were supplied; these are simply the best. All fulfilled and delivered within a week. Here is one of the images we have put to viewmaster reel.
Kids Menu on viewmaster reels !
For the very special restaurant Gasterij Het Ruiterhuys in Castricum (Holland) - http://www.hetruiterhuys.nl - we did a fantastic project for the creation of the most fantastic kids menu in Europe. The several dishes were photographed in 3D on location by Ronald Schalekamp (www.3dworldshop.com owner) in the beautiful outdoor garden in Castricum. I was helped by my indispensable colleague (and son) Jetze. Jetze was responsible for the disappearance of the dishes as soon as they were pictured in 3D. He had lots of delicious fun!
As you can see in this picture, we used a Fuji W3 camera for photography. A tripod, a black background and two LED lamps were the rest of the equipment. The Fuji W3 camera produces amazing 3D images, also close-up, if you know how to use the camera. Obviously, the produced stereo pictures were afterwards post-processed and adjusted to set optimal 3D effect. Finally, there was text in different depth layers added for a truly impressive 3D result. The Fuji W3 cameras are now no longer produced. Nevertheless www.3dworldshop.com has some left in stock of the last series. See below also.
The seven final stereo images were made into 25 Viewmaster rerels for Het Ruiterhuys. All children that come to eat now choose from the 3D menu in the Model O Viewmaster viewers. If you've never been to The Ruiterhuys in Castricum I recommend a visit highly. The beach is nearby. Then relax on the terrace with - of course - a kids menu! Let us know how you liked the 3D effects. A short image presentation of this project can be found here:
FUJI W3 CAMERAS, NEW! THE LAST ONES - IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE FROM STOCK
WWW.3DWORLDSHOP.COM has a final batch of NEW Fuji W3 camera's on offer. In box, never used. These are the last copies of the camera which is now no longer in production. A very good 3D compact camera, see also the above project. Fun for yourself; great as a gift and also good to have a reserve! A direct link to the camera in our webshop:
PRINTING PHOTOS FOR THE 3D SOUVENIR VIEWER
One of our regular customers - and 3D enthusiast - Bas de Reuver made a template for the 3D Souvenir Viewers. With this template you can simply have photos printed by an online service. He designed the template for the Fuji 3D camera's, but it should work with other stereo pictures also.
You can download his template, with manual in English here:
Bas has done a great job.

For the project Streets of the World, www.3dworldshop.com produced 40 custom View-Master reels and supplied 40 viewers with a promotional sticker. The reel shows 7 images of the unique photo project, where street life in worldwide capital cities was recorded. The pictures were in 2D. We added a text to the image, that floats in front. See www.streetsoftheworld.com.
An advertising agency in Amsterdam commissioned us to produce 100 custom reels & viewers for www.purplepride.nl. This was a promotion project for a group of eggplant growers. The beautiful 2D images were converted to 3D by us and put on View-Master reels. The reels were given a full color sticker label. The viewers were branded using a promotional sticker.

Incidentally, we can now supply the viewers (black model L and model O) from our own stock, up to hundreds at once.
3DWORLDSHOP CREATES 3D CONTENT
3DWORLDSHOP is increasingly often used for the creation of 3D content. Last month, for example, we have been working on a 3D project for VMEngineering from the Dutch city of Rosmalen. We provided them with 3D photography, shot at an industrial site. These images were processed for the anaglyph technique. The 3D pictures have been used in a business flyer, added with personalized 3D glasses (also supplied by us). Also the stereoscopic photos were made into a 3D presentation for use on an industrial business fair. See also: www.pi2m.com

Custom viewmaster reels very popular for promotion
The use of viewmaster reels for promotion is very popular. The past year we have already done several projects, including for the World Museum Rotterdam. In mid january 2010 we made five sets for a wholesaler of clothing, each set with a viewer and 2 reels. Reel 1 covers the history of the company and reel 2 the present/future. Very nice! Delivery by us in a beautiful presentation box, including protection. Ready to send. The reels are completely hand made by us, up to a number of 100, completely to customer specifications. Meanwhile we can also offer greater numbers of reels (1.000 and up), for a very competitive price. In collaboration with an American company. See '3D SERVICES' for more information.
DIGITAL 3D CAMERAS ON THE RISE
The Fuji 3D camera is the first in its kind, but not for long. Other companies have already announced their own digital stereo camera, with great specifications. The new 3D camera from 3DInlife is produced in China and has impressive specifications. This camera we will also be selling. It is expected in the first months of 2010. Of course this camera also has a 3D LCD monitor on the back, with no 3D glasses needed to see the effect. The camera has 3x optical zoom and is easy to switch from 2D to 3D photography. The camera offers optical stabilization, built-in AF focus light, a built-in flash and a flash contact for connecting an external flash. The camera offers up to 16 megapixel and 12 megapixel for 3D photography. Very special is the HD movie option, with a resolution of 1280 x 720 with a framerate of 30, in both 2D and 3D! The camera offers extensive options for manual operation. So it gives much creative freedom. We will keep you informed.
WORKING ON OUR NEW WEBSHOP
Welcome to 3DWORLDSHOP, the NEW worldwide webshop for stereoscopic products and services. Right now, we are working hard and hope to have this webshop up and running within a few weeks time. We have been in the 3D business for quite some time. Since october 2006 our Dutch language webshop www.fotografie-in-3d.nl is online. Through that website we sell our products to costumers from Holland and Belgium. This website will make our activities truly worldwide. We want to offer you only the best in 3D. Everything that is on offer, was tested by us. So you will not find any 'hot' products that are not worth the money. Nor will you find ten different stereo viewers or 3D glasses that pretty much do the same thing; we only offer you the BEST one or two. Service and quality comes first for us. So if you have questions, we will promptly reply. Let us give you advise or help you wherever possible. Check back soon and see what we offer you!
Friendly greetings from Holland,
