Sony “With this new VENICE setup shooting in 3D will make a very light and small setup. (PS I have yet to see a “small” 3D setup). With two of the small E-Mount optical block cameras in a beam splitter configuration, the rig came in at 30 pounds. The new Venice camera with the tethered optical block is being used in four Avatar sequels for live motion capture.”

Just when we thought the video industry had finally learned the lessons about 3D, Sony decide to give it one more try. Doh just remembered my 50″ 3D Panasonic telly packed in last year but the glasses still work.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
