  1. #1 3 camera rig 
    I'm doing an upcoming shoot where we are trying to do the limitless infinite zoom effect. We are aiming to shoot with 3 RED Monstros side by side. Does anyone know of place where we can get a mount to put the 3 cameras side by side on a single tripod. Or possibly how to build something easily to achieve this?

    Interesting, not sure exactly what limitless infinite zoom is.

    Are you going to use 3 cameras with 3 different focal lengths that shoots for the same target and then scale and stitch them together so you get higher resolution towards the center?
    If so anything you can bolt down the cameras on, big cheese plate or such is good enough, as the aiming is not super important. More important that they dont move in relation to each other during the shoot.

    All you need is a long cheese plate mounted to a touch-and-go. The simpler the better.

    From the movie Limitless. But it's exactly like you describe - 3 cams with a wide, normal, and tele lens. Then they moved the cameras a block to the next intersection and did it again, then again and again. So then it's all masked/roto'ed and stitched together so it's like one continuous, impossible zoom lens.
