CNC Milled Aluminum Mount

Custom Designed for Twin Sony DSC-V3 Digital Cameras and a LANC Shepherd Controller.

This mount for stereo photography with twin Sony DSC-V3 cameras is milled from a single block of aluminum using computer control and digital modeling. The mount has an outrigger for mounting a LANC Shepherd or LANC Shepherd Pro controller, a place to mount a cold shoe for an external flash, a secure tripod mount, and a slot for a neck strap. The mount is quite stout and secure. It provides the most compact configuration for twin stereo cameras, with minimum lens axis separation. The outrigger of the mount also provides a convenient carrying handle for the cameras.

The Pictures: Here are a few sample stereo images for your enjoyment. The pairs are big, 900x600, and I need to use a screen resolution of at least 1024x768 to view them on a web page. I apologize to those of you without broadband also--the compression is mild, because I can't stand to see JPEG compression artifacts in stereo. These images all open in a new window. Optimized for screen resolution of 1024x768 or higher, 32 bit color.
