ECLIPSE XLHD Multicam Array

Overview

Once again demonstrating it's extraordinary flexibility, the Eclipse MultiCam Array is a further adaptation of the award winning Eclipse and is a leap forward for VFX plate photography.

The Multicam Array utilizes six 8K Red Weapon Helium cameras in a toed in array with 3 across by 2 rows high. Stitching together all six images in post production provides an approximate seamless 120K (70 Megapixel) image with a 145 degrees horizontal, 120 degrees vertical view.
In addition to aerial use, the Eclipse Multicam Array can be used on the ground with small cranes via a Mitchell-mount adapter. Producers can use the same Eclipse system for normal single camera shooting and the Multicam Array for plate shots. The time to change between them is approximately 4 hours.
