    Ugh, I used this on a 3d film with Sony EX3's and what a horrible experience, the entire built quality just feels like a chinese knock-off, things could be moved around to easily, and the glass just didn't hold up when you needed minute adjustments.

    I could go on for hours on how much I didn't like the rig

    I have it, now i'm installing it with 2x redone. In days i can make a better report.

    First report, you get what you pay.

    I'm figuring how to align vertical of the cameras. Its my mayor problem now. I will atach a motor for IO, i think it's simple. But convergence will be a real problem. I must make something "in house" because i need something more fluid (and if possible motorized)

    My initial opinion is: it's too big. I think it can be smaller. The glass can be much better (the price is to low). The adjustement of the IO is ok!, I like this system, is heavy but work well.

    When I setup all componentes and all work perfect, I'll back here to post a small review and final opinion about 3d film factory.

    For now... do you know where i can find a better glass?

    In other part,
    I have problems with zooms. The center change between 2 cameras... so, no zoom possible without new adjustment. I don't know if the problems is the zooms... or the cameras... but this is important to have in mind.


    saludos,



    Jose.

    Even if you use the zoom as you'd be working with primes?

    You could call Element Technica and talk to them about replacement mirrors or check out either these sites.

    Don't know about the quality from these guys but you could check them out.

    Or check out this site which sells a replacement for the p+s technik rig. Which if oem should be of high quality.

    I love it when someone randomly makes a statement about a part without the knowledge.
    What exactly does"better" mean here?
    flatter(and how flat)? coated(what coatings), any other considerations?
    or just spend $500-5000 and hope it works?

    If you are working like primes no problem you can adjust the mirror. But if you want to be faster without any adjustement between diferents focal you need a 2 factory match zoom for 3d... At least my lens don't match.
