The Cyclopital3D Stereo Base Extender for Panasonic HDC-Z10000 helps you to produce amazing 3D images of more distant subjects by maintaining accurate depth portrayal when you use longer than normal focal lengths. It is especially useful for capturing the action in sporting events, getting up close at concerts, or shooting wildlife while maintaining your distance. Anytime you want to get a close look at your subject without getting too close to it.
The Panasonic Z10000 allows you to "zoom in" increasing the scale of "X" and "Y" up to a factor of six (6X Zoom). Now, using the Cyclopital3D Stereo Base Extender, you can also increase the scale in the "Z" dimension too! The SBE makes your subjects appear four times closer than they actually are; if you also zoom to make them four times bigger, then the footage looks like you have moved to a position four times closer to your subject.
Using the SBE with lesser values of zoom will add depth to the scene, but the expanded scale in Z can also make the world appear somewhat "miniaturized." Zooming in without the base extender will make the world look "bigger," but also "flatter" with less depth, particularly in the subjects themselves. Taken to extreme zooming without increasing the stereo base can cause "card-boarding," where the subjects do not show the "roundness" one sees in the real world, instead subjects may look like they are painted on cardboard cutouts.
