Genus are holding a free “Play with a Rig” session to get hand on with the Hurricane 3D Rig on the 20th of July at the Phoenix Artists Club in central London between 12.30pm and 6pm.
There will be at least one rig with cameras and monitors to try out as well as other related accessories. Entrance is free and there will be discounts on rigs and accessories for anyone that attends as well as a free prize draw.
I’d be interested to see how this rig would work with a couple of camera pairs I have access to. Firstly I have access to a pair of Sony HDR-FX7E Handycams that can be synched using a LANC Shepherd controller or a pair of Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II’s although there’s no perfect way to link the 5D’s. It would certainly be interesting to get my hands on this entire setup so I could see exactly what kind of quality I can achieve.
