Stereoscopic video shooting in VR180 format

Recommended Posts

 

Hi 
With VR headsets becoming increasingly more popular, I am having difficulties to find available UW solutions for shooting in 3D VR180 formats . Apparently the best performance for the money will be the Canon EOS R5 with the Canon RF 5.2 mm F2.8 L dual fisheye lens. But as far as I know there is no UW housing solution for this.

Any other suggestions? 

Thanks

What about using two parallel gopro, insta360 or similar action cameras (for video)?

Marcelo, contact Gates https://www.gateshousings.com/contacts/ and ask for me.  I may have something you can use.

An underwater solution for the RF 5.2mm F2.8 L dual fisheye lens would be interesting. I wonder what would happen if you shoot that behind a regular dome port?

Specs say it 121mm wide so it would not fit through the N120- or even the 125mm ports from Marelux most likely.  Beyond that the optics of a dome port depend on symmetry so a single dome would introduce distortions I would think.  It would have a completely different optical path length from one side to the other of each individual lens.  You might be able to make a custom N120-N200 adapter to use it?
