    Yes, but such configuration requires very complex off-axis ocular lenses for convergence or stereo window size adjustment.
    Much better quality of preview is obtained simply by two mirrors with adjustable angle and it only requires simple ocular lenses for focusing and view angle matching.

    Did you know that no Hollywood movie producer had ever created Realistic 3D content.
    I have a question...isn't this assuming the interocular distance is standard at 63mm? E.g., in adults the value might vary between 54-68mm and for kids it might vary between 41-55mm.

    From Wikipedia:
    • The typical pupillary distance for adults is around 5468 mm, while measurements generally fall between 48 and 73 mm.
    • For children the measurement usually ranges from 41 to 55 mm.
    • The 95 percentile adult male in the USA has an IPD of 70 mm (2.8 in) and the 5 percentile, 55 mm (2.17 in). Those are each the 5% of USA men at the far range and short range, respectively.
    • For adult females in the USA the figures are 65 and 53 mm (2.6 and 2.1 in).
    • For Europeans the figures are 1 mm smaller than the above.
    If this is the case, can anyone achieve true orthographic 3D?

    63 mm is the human average IO distance. Ortographic 3D is created using ortographic camera or a camera with FL of infinite length.
    Realistic 3D projects undistorted perspective image of real world scene and a scene is perceived in its original scale.

    Here is an example of ortographic 3D image:

    In preproduction for indie feature potentially in 3D. Would love to try this thing out with a dragon for my prepro trailer... Any chance of test rentals in upcoming months?

    Why rent if you can purchase a used one for less on eBay... http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthr...ED-Epic-camera

    Interesting - I see you have 2 3d adapters for Epic - what is the difference between them.

    Realistic has 63mm stereo base and the classic one has 140 mm base which creates miniaturized scenes (best for group of people/sporting events).
