The Nature Museum in Ottawa is playing an amazing movie showing wildlife in the north america forests. Backyard Wilderness has a feel-good family oriented theme.
It is amazing how close-up the photography is. The foxes, wood ducks, mice and salamanders are at times just inches from the camera. Clearly the photographer would be using a sensor to trigger the camera, but still, how could she set up the equipment in such a perfect position?
The theatre’s 3d vision is much better than what you see in the Cineplex with their disposable polarised glasses. Nature.ca has non-disposable glasses which give a bright, clear 3d view. The glasses use active shutter technology. The left lens ‘opens’ for a fraction of a second, and the projector/screen shows the left view. Then the right lens ‘opens’ and the projector/screen shows the right view, and the cycle repeats. You cannot see any flickering or hear any mechanism.
The cost is $4 in addition to the regular museum entrance fee.
