3D Courses

3D Is Wonderful, Except....

Richard Sandomir of The New York Times was among the press who attended yesterday’s demonstration of what 3D Masters coverage might look like, and he wrote a glowing review of it that appeared in today’s paper: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/01/sports/golf/01threedee.html

It begins, “If the test footage shot recently at the Augusta National Golf Club is an authentic gauge, the Masters in 3-D will look terrific.”  And, until the very end of the article, it seemed only to get better still.

At the very end, however, Sandomir acknowledged some “flaws,” one that “blurred” the picture, another that was “visually jarring,” and a third that “was dizzying.”  The review ends with a quote:

“‘We’re figuring out what works and what doesn’t,’ said Mark Francisco, a Comcast Fellow working on 3-D.”
