3D and Alexa


So has any 3D work been shot on Alexa yet? What would be the preferred rig with the camera's size and shape?

Pace is currently shooting Hugo Cabret with Alexa's on a Pace Steadicam beamsplitter. Images have been posted elsewhere. Others are shooting as well but have not announced publicly perhaps.

Scorsese and Bob Richardson are currently shooting an S3D feature in England using ALEXAs. The cameras will fit onto any of the standard rigs with little difficulty. I believe they're using Pace gear.

Pace is the only current 3D Rig manufacturer using Alexa's in a 3D configuration. I may be wrong?

I'm sure either the Kerner Optical Rig or Element Technica Quasar would fit Alexa’s. Now will it fit with Short zooms, I'm not 100% till I can put it up.

3ality's Rig may hold Alexa’s but I'll let someone who knows more about 3ality's Rig speak on it.

The ET Q rig will fit the Alexa with a short zoom and a bit of adjustments.

Total weight.

They're using Steadicam, Larry McConkey, but it's always rigged to something, dolly or Segway.
