Here is a funny video about 3D video.
Does anyone shoot diving and spearing in 3D or intend to try it?
The GoPro 3D setup is affordable. Has anyone tried it?

waste of money and time...if i wanted to drop 8-900 dollars on a video setup, it would not be on two go pros. i would get a real camera and case to make movie quality videos.

Id spend $900 in a heartbeat if it was good quality
3 D. Sounds cool to me.

Says the guy with three wong guns. Haha. While 900 on a good quality camera isn't too bad. Having two go pros doesn't equal twice as good of footage. While it takes pretty good footage, for underwater I'd call it average at best. Coupled with the uselessness of 3d it's just not worth dragging along that big ass case for something different. Go ahead and buy them, and let us know if its worth it.

The camera(s) used does not have to be GoPro nor does it have to be on the high end like cameras used in the movie Avatar.
Here is an intermediate article attached as a pdf from one of the filmmaking magazines I get about shooting 3D on a budget. Reducing the file size of the article from 7 MB below 500kb was a major pain for this file, but I did it and hopefully there are no typos from the scan.
Again, I will re-phrase my original question - has anyone tried taping spearfishing in 3D?
Thanks, Tony :)

James Cameron, step aside. Your YouTube video is taking on a new dimension -- 3D.
Yes, you, too, can make either "Avatar" or "Titanic 3D," but shorter. In other words, whether you're shooting in 3D or in 2D (like the rest of us), your videos can become a beautiful blur of red and blue.
YouTube just took its 3D conversion out of beta and rolled it out to across the site. With the click of a button, short-form high-definition videos uploaded in 1080p now offer the three-dimensional flavor as well.
"In the same way we made editing features available ... we want a way to give editors and users more tools," said YouTube spokesman Matt McLernon.

A sample in the 3D Guide. Play around with the settings and try 1080p viewing. There are alot of options for 3D.

pornography would be my intention, not spearfishing, unless spearfishing was part of the plot
