A stereoscopic/3D camera rig designed for a multi channel stereoscopic video installation (Lip Synch with Robert Lepage, produced by epidemic France).
The goal was to get the two camcorders close enough together to be able to shoot ortho stereo, meaning an interocular distance of ~ 65mm, close to the human eyes. The rig is flexible, lightweight and it is easy to physicaly align the camera pair (pan, tilt and roll) and economical to produce.
The cameras with a .65 wide angle adapter lens have a minimum interocular distance of 69mm, the maximum is ~120mm. For the small distance it is required to mount one camera up-side-down. For larger distances, the camera are mounted next to each other.
