Re: what's 3-D?

I'm always mildly surprised when people make such assertions about the domain of science because it is simply wrong. Blind testing of "perceptions" is how cognitive science progresses. Far from being unsuitable, it is ideal for truth determination of this kind.

I have a belief that there is a certain "something" about the rendering of the DP2M when picturing surface texture that is different from other cameras.  I accept that it is perfectly possible that I am simply imagining this.  A blind test is the ideal way to detect whether it is my imagination or real.

If I consistently see the difference under non-test conditions but fail under test conditions and this is all set up properly and analysed properly then I can't detect the phenomenon in reality, I'm just imagining I can. Figuring this out is what blind testing is good at. And never underestimate the placebo effect - it's incredibly powerful.
