Zavvi are selling some 3D glasses. These are plastic framed 3D glasses unlike the old style cardboard ones. Website Description:

With 3D TV and cinema set to take off in the next few years, soon everyone will want to get in on the action with their very own pair of 3D glasses!

Light-years ahead of the flimsy old cardboard frames and thin red and green plastic lenses, our new 3D glasses have comfortable, high quality plastic frames and proper optical lenses.

The red and blue lenses are carefully tuned to get the best out of modern stereo imagery and the results are truly amazing!

So, if you want to truly appreciate the latest in 3D technology then dont bother with the tacky cardboard viewers that cinemas supply and get your very own top quality 3D glasses that you can take with you again and again.

I probably need someone more technical to help me out here....

....but I don't think these red/blue 3D specs will work with any modern 3D movie. These will only work with older 3D movies (i.e "Spy Kids 3D"....

I could be wrong though! Top price anyway.

Correct, I believe the modern films are usin polarized lenses

These will work with all currently released and scheduled 3D movies, they wont work in the cinema (where the glasses are
However they are unlikely to work with the forthcoming BD-3D format and the TV's being released to support them, as these are likely to either be shuttered or polarised glasses.

If you want a more robust set of 3D specs for current releases, these aren't bad.

These are just in time to be out of date.

OK so theyre not future proof, but for £3 not bad, unless anyone can find any cheaper?
As i hate the paper ones, at least these should be more comfortable.

I'd have thought the most important factor is that old-style 3D looks like crap...

Banned

Ideal for wearing out, just to look different. At least they will last longer than a zavvi T-shirt of the same price. :-D

These will be fine for all DVD and BD releases so far...they'll be no good for the Cinema or for the upcoming new 'all singing all dancing' 3D!!

...but, let's be honest, this new 3D malarky is destined to fall flat on it's ar5e...who on earth is going to invest in a brand new TV and a brand new 3D BD player (...oh yes, you'll need one of those)??

...and if you are into home cinema and have you're beloved 5.1 or 7.1 setup installed in your dedicated room, be aware that you're going to need new HDMI cabling and a new HDMI 4.1 capable amp/receiver as those available now ain't up to the job!!!

...as I said, destined to die on it's ar5e as far as the home cinema market goes, we're in a recession you know!

Actually, I don't think this is true. The cardboard glasses given away in Sainsburys a few months ago for the Channel 4 3D week (oh, and Chuck's 3D episode), were actually using different colour - more a sort of orange and blue, under the ColorCode3D label.

So these really are only for the very old films, like Jaws 3, etc.

And definitely won't work in the cinema on with the upcoming 3D TVs.

Was it just the pairs that I got, or was the "blue" lens three times dark, and practically black? I couldn't watch the 3D stuff becuase my "blue" eye was struggling to make anything out at all through the murky lens, It just got annoying after a few minutes. :roll:
