There have been a few lens for SLR cameras like Loreo 3D Lens or Holga 3d lens.
Lately a few lens attachments also appeared (like poppy 3d only for iphones and Kula deeper).
Is any of those actually worth it in quality? I know that they cut the resolution in half to produce an SBS image.
Also are there any designs for a small dIY beamsplitter for a phone or compact camera.
I will attempt to make one my self but its not easy to cut mirrors, even plastic mirrors.

I tried a couple of mirror attachments, including the Pentax Stereo Adapter, on a Konica Minolta A200 camera and the results were unsatisfactory.  I then tried using a slider with my Canon 7D and got excellent 3D images of still subjects, but just doing the cha cha worked almost as well and was a lot easier.  The slider just didn't work for any subject that could move - it took too long between exposures.

Finally I bought a Fuji Real 3D W3 and forgot about all the kludge ways to take 3D photos except for the times when I am doing landscape or architecture photography.
