The experimental RIG 2:13DTWO it´s a Stereopanoramic rotator designed to transport the Sony Alpha 5000 and 6000 series cameras by an interchangeable cradle system. The difference is that when using the A5000 we will use an interaxial distance of 6.4cm, while using the A6000 the interaxial distance will be 6.6cm.
It has 360º freedom of movement in two axes (Y/Z) and sliding on the X, (NEW) axis. This allows you to use 6.5mm, 8mm, 12mm and 16mm optics, for which the 4 different capture workflows have been designed and tested.
EXAMPLE: If you are working with 8mm optics, the best capture consists of six columns with two headers. One stop every 60º, and two photos with plus/minus 25º. If we work with 16mm, it will be necessary to make 12 stops, one every 30º and three pitches with the following parameters: -40º, 0º, +40.
This RIG can be used as a traditional nodal rotator, you only need an allen key to loosen the screws of the lower brakets and move the camera holder bar until it coincides with the vertical nodal axis of the camera.
This feature has been designed to alleviate our workload and avoid having to carry extra weight.
By adding the third axis of movement; sliding on the X axis, we can make stereopanographies inside a cardboard box that holds the RIG; a refrigerator or the interior of a car, for which we will work with inter-axial distances of less than 1 cm.
For the realization of landscapes, and counting on a pole, or a monofoot that allows us to elevate the optics more than 3m on the ground, we will be able to use stereoscopic bases of up to 12 centimeters, an ideal distance to portray “skylines” or landscapes.
