Abstract
In this paper, a new 3D adapter system with a lens unit interposed between a capturing lens and an adapter housing for alternately passing right and left video images of an object there through, wherein the lens unit has an entrance pupil point formed outside the lens unit, the lens unit has a magnification of 1:1, and the lens unit comprises a plurality of symmetrically arranged lenses for reversing the video images, whereby it is possible to capture video images with wide picture angles without increasing the size of the adapter housing, and to prevent occurrence of any distortion in the resulting video images comprised of the integrated right an left images of the object. From some experimental result, the conventional 3D adapter system has the standard deviation of x axis is 3.92 pixels and the standard deviation of y axis is 2.92 pixels. But in the used camera system, the standard deviation of x axis is 1.11 pixels and the standard deviation of y axis is 0.39 pixels. Thus the errors in pixel of proposed system are smaller than the conventional system.
