Three dimensional video recording with the introduction of the Panasonic HDC-SDT750

Digital video cameras showed up about fifteen years back, high-definition just 5 years ago, and today video is becoming 3D too. This is how it works; the unique 3D transformation camera lens captures left-eye and right-eye visuals at the same time via the pair of lenses, hence creating video footage which may be viewed in 3D. The images are recorded in an image resolution of 960 by 1080 pixels which will come across great on regular three dimensional TV sets. Without having the three dimensional transformation lens connected, any HDC-SDT750K works additionally as a high-performance full High definition video camera. The actual lens is made for close-up depth perception within the three to fifteen foot range; it also does not have any kind of zoom capacity. Overall, the actual video camera has not significantly changed from the HDC-TM700, with the exception that the item is now delivered together with the attachable 3D transformation lens, benefits from enhanced noise reduction and also comes with an updated OIS.

Fortunately, it isn’t really too difficult to change the actual screw-on lens, in order to change it into a typical zoom capable 2D video camera. Whenever you do insert the three dimensional lens back again  there is a easy series of  startup selections, that allow you to fine-tune the actual twin lenses inside the 3D add-on using a couple of knobs concealed within a compartment on the actual assembly.

Samsung Galaxy S gets Android 2.2.1 (I9000XWJS3) through Kies – build date 11 January 2011

I can confirm myself, this version of firmware brings with it not only general bug fixes to Froyo, but it seems to make the device move much faster without any lag fixes – I guess it just doesn’t need any.

A few details about this firmware…

Firmware: I9000XWJS3
Firmware build date: 11 January 2011
Swype version: 2.6.47
Swype languages: UK/US English, Deutsch, Francais, Nederlands, Svenska, Dansk, Suomi, Norsk, Hrvatski, Romana, Srpski, Slovenscina and 2 more.
Quadrant score: 1216

Ok, let’s see a few improvements:

– doesn’t need lag-fixes
– no wireless issue
– no gps issue
– 26 apps thought Samsung apps
– no battery bug
– there are more, I’m sure, but this is what I noticed

If you want to update your firmware to this version you need to:

– install the latest version of KIES, or update it.
– remove all lag-fixes from your phone
– backup your phone contacts and calendar
– use Kies Registry Patcher to spoof your phone product code as: NEE
– update your phone through KIES
– factory reset your phone
– restore lost data, contacts and calendar

You can get the latest version of Samsung Kies from: here.

Note: this update is available only if your phone product code is NEE (Dutch CSC). Otherwise, you can update only if you spoof your product code to NEE using for example Kies Registry Patcher v.1.7 – however, this will void your warranty and can brick your device (actually, the update procedure itself can do it), so use the spoofing metod on your own risk.
