This iPhone video clip shows Steadicam operator Phil Martinez flying dual MX sensor RED ONE cameras on a 21st Century 3D BX3 beamsplitter with two Angenieux Optimo Rouge 16 - 42mm lenses. The cameras and Transvideo 3DView monitor are powered directly off the Steadicam sled. This is an awesome demonstration of a floating, untethered stereoscopic 3D mirror rig.
In an initial test about two weeks ago, we included C-Motion lens control gear. Phil was able to balance and walk around with the rig, but was disappointed that it maxed out his G70 arm. At the suggestion of a contact at Tiffen, Phil added additional tension to the arm with bungee cord. The added spring of the bungee was enough to make BX3 float.
The C-Motion gear was out on rental when we did the test shown in the video, but Phil was delighted with the results of the bungee enhanced arm and was confident that the small amount of additional weight from the motors and C-motion gear would not hamper flight.
