International testing of russian Stereo-70 system.
Posted 21 April 2010 - 02:57 AM
I wish present NIKFI news, russian research institute of film making, about 3D filming at Stereo-70 system.
( Sorry for computer translation from russian ).
The English company San Fermin Film , in quest of technological system for production 3D stero movie has done its choice in favour of russian system Stereo-70 . Relatively small weight of the cameras (8-15 kgs), big information capacity 65мм films for digital matrixes for present-day day greatly answers need a production 3D movie for gigantic screen (Giant screen ), called IMAX.
Power specialist MKBK ( http://www.mkbk.ru/f_en/index_f_en.htm Moskov design Engineering bureau) was organized big work on preparation film camera equipments and 3D lenses, given NTC STEREOKINO and NIKFI. The express master-class was organized With englishes cameraman on operative management a 3D lenses.
After clean edit a 65-mm film 3D stereo frames will be scan in permit 8К and then print on two 65-mm films left and right scene with frames on 15 perforations each.
But testing on this was not limited With specialist of the companies Vision Research Phirose Dala, which profit in Spain with digital 3D camera Phantom-65, were organized experimental removals with use 3D lenses a systems Stereo-70 (F- 35-mm), for which specialist MKBK was made special lens mount adapter for front panel of the camera. The Removals have shown that beside such tandem there is big future.
Parallel on platform worked and Spanish company D4D Ingenieria Visual S.L. (the director Enrique Martines and 3D cameramen Alfredo Gonzales), which the 3D shooting by system of the vertical setting two cameras RED through translucent mirror.
Some episodes of the holiday left mobile 3D HDV system, designed in NIKFI.
Thereby, in Spain, at July 2009 for the first time existed broad comparative testing varied format and technological systems for production стереофильмов.
The Presentation of the trailer of the film is already declared on the next international conference GSCA (the Assotiation of the producers film gigantic screen), which will pass at September in Indianapolis (USA).
NIKFI open a teaching of 3D filmmaing. May- June 2010
( translation )
In connection with rising interest to 3D-technology, in particular - to 3D photo and 3D TV, Educational centre NIKFI organizes the extraordinary group for learning the amater photographers and professional photo-cinema-video-industry base practical 3D photo. The Course is built thereby that graduates will be able to begin successful functioning as professional 3-D photogrphers, having all necessary knowledges and skill right after completions of the education.
Price of course - 25 000 russian rubels, (near $1000) , time - 48 teaching.
I think, the course at russian, but,
I think, You can ask about english versin of couses too.

I wonder if the Kinor HD cameras wouldn't be a wise alternative, being that 65mm film is expensive and most production co's (in the west, at least) would not be able to produce a stereo 3D feature in 35mm, much less in 65mm. Personally, I would love to shoot 65mm 3D, don't get me wrong. Just being pragmatic . . .
Yes, Kinor digital camera can be a wise alternative a 65 mm filming.
I do not know of all details about new projects of guys from Kinor digital company, but, i know, they have very good business relations with 3D designer group of NIKFI and 3D lend designers from MKBK.
NIKFI show a 3D HDTV camera a some time ago.
And I think, We can see a Kinor digital 3D at future.
Kinor propose a DCX camera systems with 4K, 8K, 16K and speeds up to 5000 fps.
If the unite at one project the theoretical ideas at 3D from NIKFI, digital cameras from Kinor, 3D lenses systems from MKBK, we can have very good 3D digital camera system.
Any case, if you have real interest to order a Kinor digital 3D, you can ask of Kinor guys directly,
or, i can re-send of your request to him.
