About Munich

Munich is the capital of Bavaria and has over 1.5 million inhabitants. The city is one of the most economically successful and fastest-growing cities in Germany and the place of business for numerous corporations and insurance companies. The largest folk festival in the world, the Oktoberfest, attracts millions of visitors from all around the world. The beer gardens in the summer, the parks along the Isar river and the nearby Alps make Munich one of the most attractive cities in the world.

The first photo gallery about Munich in stereoscopic Ultra High Definition 3D

Never could you experience Munich as close as you would be on the spot. Thanks to a new developed in the production process of stereoscopic 3D photos, it is now possible to rediscover Munich completely. A careful selection of the best 50 photos, which are suitable for stereoscopic reproduction, allow you to view 3D photos without the eyes becoming tired..

Munich in 3D - A Piece of contemporary history

A photo is a document of a contemporary history. The unique moment of a photo will never be repeated again. For stereoscopic photographs, one is moved back to reality as soon as the picture arose. Even in 100 years, the principle of stereoscopy will not change. Mankind only have two eyes. If an image is displayed separately for each eye, then an impression arises as if one were again at that time on the spot. Nothing could hold a historical moment better than a 3D stereoscopic photo.

Photos that are ahead of their time

The world is waiting for autostereoscopic playback technologies. If one can view 3D photos without glasses and this is also available for the broad masses, then stereoscopy is as common as a color television. Stereoscopic reproduction technology is still under development. At the beginning, 3D images were presented with a stereoscope. Later the anaglyph technology was developed. You could print 3D images and then view them with  special Red/Cyan glasses. The development of the polarizing filter technology was a breakthrough. The right and the left image could now be separated cleanly in true colors. With simple cheap polarizing glasses everyone could experience 3D. The high display quality requires a high degree of image quality, however, which not all 3D photo and 3D movie producers are able to match.

For stereoscopic photos there are no professional compact solutions. Although one has already developed cameras with two lenses, the picture quality however is always in the amateur range. Professional photos require professional equipment. That is why the 3D photography is still genuine manual work. Automatic programs do not work reliably synchronously. For this reason, each photo must still be photographed manually. The brightness, Iso, exposure time, color temperature and focal length must exactly be the same. With the right angle of incidence one reaches the natural depth effect. A quick snapshot is therefore not possible. The aim is to imitate natural vision.

Only those who understand the anatomy of vision can produce good 3D photos!

The eyes are also a sensitive sense organ whose muscles should not be too much stressed. The most comfortable way to see clearly is from the distance. Poor 3D images stress the muscles of the iris and the eyeball. Therefore, it is not surprising that some are very critical towards 3D photos. There are unfortunately many photos and films which are very stressful for the viewer. These should be classified at best, harmful to health. Well-produced 3D images take into account the anatomy of seeing. The depth of the screen must correspond to the viewer's natural viewing ratio. Therefore for example, it is not possible to display a panoramic image in a wide-angle format on a monitor realistically in 3D. The photos presented here from Munich correspond precisely to the human vision and can be viewed optimally by each of the two working healthy eyes.

The experience is at the forefront, the seeing and feeling of the place

"Munich in 3D" is best experienced with the latest Ultra High Definition televisions that support 3D playback. The high resolution guarantees that you will not see any more pixels. In this way an experience is generated, as if the TV would be a shining showcase like in a museum. People and animals look like puppets that are frozen in a moment. With balanced high dynamic range photography, shadows and lights have been adapted to the human vision. It is thus, the most realistic method to capture the moment.

For viewing of the photos of Munich on a 3D TV you can download the photos for free. In the ZIP file is a folder containing 50 MPO photos of Munich. Unzip the ZIP file to your computer and transfer the folder to a USB stick. Connect the USB stick to a 3D TV. Usually the TV immediately recognizes that a USB stick has been connected so that a dialog window opens to view the photos.

For those who do not have a 3D TV, the photos can also be viewed alternatively as an anaglyph version. The following image gallery supports all common playback methods for viewing of stereoscopic photos.

The recording format of the photo gallery

The picture series "Munich in 3D" was photographed with two Canon Eos 550D. The resolution of the raw format is 5814x3456 pixels. This corresponds to a size of 43x29 cm at 300 dpi. In order to present the photos in full screen on a 3D TV, they were cut to a 16:9 format and reduced to a 4K resolution with 3840x2160 pixels. Each photo can be re-assembled and edited without loss of quality.
