Were any of the sample images taken with the background defocus turned on?  I would like an unbiased review of how this feature works.

I believe that image quality of 4.5 shoudl be quite relative for this camera :S

A decent but somewhat outdated offering from Sony. I purchased this camera recently and have not been impressed by the apparent lack of sharpness from the pictures with full optical zoom.

Does anyone know of a software program I could use to view 3D photos taken with the cybershot dsc wx5 on a Mac?

So far the best way I’ve found to view both 3-D Photos AND Videos is with those 3-D Prism Glasses.

The 3-D format must be in “parallel” (Side-by-Side) view but you can see the 3-D effect in full color on ANY screen (LCD, LED, CRT…) - handy little things.

They seem to “shrink” the image a little but you still get a pretty nice 3-D effect.

And for $25 with free shipping on Amazon, they’re way cheaper than any other alternative I know of.

Plus with all the 3-D videos on YouTube now it’s a good way to waste an afternoon (like we all need help doing that - ha ha ha).
