Can a 3D video camera stop jittery video? or has it not yet been invented? Answered

While walking around i was thinking about how our eyes capture video that isn't jitter no matter how much you shake your head.

Does human sight not have jitters because of perspective? or is it because of a point of reference?
Is there a way to recreate it?

Does 3D video get rid of this diy filming issue?

No, it isn't perspective. It's fairly intensive unconscous processing and tracking, both at the mechanical level (moving the eyes to compensate) and integrating the visual space in the brain (otherwise every motion of your eyes would break the continuity). Input comes from both the visual system and the inner ear, and possibly from other nerves.

This can indeed be emulated in a camera, to some degree. Many higher-end cameras these days can either move their image sensor, or move elements in their lenses, to compensate for camera shake to some degree; they use a combination of accelerometers (like the inner ear) and image processing to determine what is camera motion and what is motion in the subject, and they apply some heuristics so they don't fight _deliberate_ camera motion.

There's a whole lot more sight/vision than eyeballs.  When you see something, your mind is quickly interpreting that information and making adjustments.  You have peripheral vision and can catch movement out of the corner of your eye and readjust your focus in milliseconds.  You can see a greater degree of the world than a camera.  For all you know, your vision is jittery and jerky, which I think it is IIRC, but you are able to interpret what your senses detect so quickly that it appears smooth.  Your mind is able to filter without you having to consciously think about it.

Sight = Power of the human brain.

Cameras = Dumb machine.

3D video cameras have been invented, and I'm not sure about the jitterieness. But I did see it was a topic at creativecow.com. They were talking about stuff like stopping jitters in your view. I think there is a way to use two small camcorders and record them at the same time right next to each other. I'm pretty sure you then import it into after effects and use the 3d plug-in. I'll have to research the topic a little more. I'll post more on it if and when I can do some tests. Hope this helps.

I also found a cheaper 3d camera, so I thought you might want to see it. It's about to be released. http://www.goprocamera.com/
