Interesting presentation at B&H (NYC) on 3/14

Looks like a good talk. They'll be covering S3D macro, some of the new cameras & lenses coming out & more:

Sounds very interesting! I wish I could make it.

I'm hoping to shoot XCUs of ants, later this year, for a project I'm prepping. I'm wondering if anyone can point me to resources about extreme stereo macro shooting.

Very knowledgeable folks at www.photomacrography.net...Front Page I'd ask around there.

The Cyclopital makes a closeup adapter for the JVC- (Ken Burgess of Cyclopital is one of the speakers on Wed.)
Probably putting a single close-up lens in front of other 3D cameras can work too-

Yeah, interesting. I notice they have one for the TD-10, which I have. It's $200, which is just the adapter. I'm not quite sure which CU lens it's supposed to adapt to; if it's a spherical one, wouldn't the left and right images be distorted from each other (just speculating)?

In film terms, I started thinking of the Frasier lens, for shooting CUs of ants. Two Frasier lenses, through a (teeny-tiny) mirror rig?

But I also notice that there are many stereoscopic microscopes available, some of them with video output. I wonder if anyone has used one of those for shooting insects up close? I should add, that I'm also hoping to shoot neurons, at some point.

This is an interesting concept, which I think could make the task simpler for field work. Rather than use two cameras, take a page from the Aiptek book, and use only one camera, with a close-up stereoscopic lens, which squeezes left and right views onto the same chip. As long as the chip is DSLR-sized (or larger), then there can still be decent resolution, with a tiny lens separation, and only one camera to squeeze into the macro-sized spots.

Since I'd prefer to shoot ants in the hill, rather than in a studio, having a small, manageable rig should be worth losing some resolution.
