Hollywood, CA—Redrock Micro, maker of affordable professional-quality cinema accessories, announced its micro3D rig for professional stereoscopic 3D production. The rig is engineered to deliver pro features at a price that makes 3D accessible to anyone wanting to shoot 3D.
The micro3D, recently awarded Best Support Rig of NAB 2011 by Videomaker magazine, is a side-by-side (SxS) support rig for two-camera stereoscopic production. It is designed for today’s smaller form factor video cameras and price-conscious 3D stereographers. Like all Redrock equipment, the micro3D carries a lifetime warranty.
While recent camera technology has dramatically reduced the price and size of video cameras that meet the requirements for pro-quality 3D production, 3D support rigs have lagged behind, remaining heavy, cumbersome and expensive. Recognizing this, Redrock Micro designed the micro3D rig as a compact, affordable solution.
Key features of the Redrock micro3D SxS stereoscopic rig for digital video cameras include: an 18-inch rail for range of interaxial adjustments with locking knobs; tool-less three-point XYZ adjustment plates for camera alignment; a bottom mounting plate with 1/4- and 3/8-inch taps for virtually any tripod mount; quick-release camera plates; laser engraved markings for convergence, interaxial distance; an optional shroud designed for Canon XF105 series or similarly sized video cameras; and all-metal construction.
The Redrock micro3D rig supports a range of cameras, including digital SLRs with HD video capability and the Canon XF105, Canon XF305, Sony EX3, Red Epic and Red One. Pricing is $895 for the 18-inch rail version and $995 for the 18-inch rail version with shroud. redrockmicro.com
