    on D810 Live View Split Screen

Nowadays we can all have 3D TVs, watch any number of commercially produced films at home or on the big screen, and easily buy cameras to shoot our own still and moving 3D images. But as always, while making things cheaper and easier to do, technology does not in itself provide the skills base that enables someone to do it well.
