Re: [PanoToolsNG] Multi 5d rig for hi res panoramic movie "background plate"
- The base under each 5D is a power distribution module, supplies power
to camera, focus motors, HDMI to HD-SDI converters or whatever. Makes
dealing with this many cameras a lot easier. the cage around each
camera is very strong and makes rigging them easy. This circle vision
rig is really simple. they must have some sort of way to gang start
the cameras as well.
About 10 years ago a friend shot some background plates in Hawaii
using 3 vistavision cameras and he said it was a real chore since they
couldn't all the cameras at once and getting shutter sync to work on
location turned into a nightmare. The 5D rig looks a lot simpler, I
wonder how they did shutter sync?
