In early March of 2008, I initiated a marathon "dump and build" process with Microfunguy to bring CHDK and, eventually, SDM to the TX-1 platform.

With invaluable assistance from ewavr, grand, jeff666, acseven and a number of other CHDK'ers, we had a working version officially released by 10 Apr 08.

Additional builds brought us to SDM ver. 1.70 which I used on 21 Jun 08 to shoot HD - 1280x720p - videos of the "Mermaid Parade" on Coney Island here in New York City.

I had built two stereo TX-1 rigs, using 4 cameras and special external battery supplies which allowed us to shoot handheld for extended periods and we ended up with 4-hours worth of footage.

As a proof of concept, we edited together an 8-1/2 minute, full color, HiDefinition video.

I'm proud to announce that a 3-minute excerpt from that video will be included in the 3D Theater screening at the Stereoscopic Displays and Applications Convention in San Jose, CA next week, 19 Jan 09.

I just want to extend a special "Thank You" to all of the people here who helped make this a reality.

Though uncredited, your contributions will be up there on that screen as well!

Kind Regards,  8)

Additional 3D screenings of the Coney Island Mermaid Parade have been held at the "Kettle of Fish" in February, and, last night, at the Gershwin Hotel as part of the BEFILM Underground Film Festival, both here in New York City.

It will also be shown to the Stereo Club of Southern California at an upcoming meeting. :D


I'm pleased to announce that my Hi-Def, 3D video of the Coney Island "Mermaid Parade" will be shown at the National Stereoscopic Association Convention being held from the 8th through the 13th of July 2009 in Mesa, Arizona, USA

Hope you can make it! 8)
