Eclipse XLHD Multicam Array

MARZANO FILMS ECLIPSE XL MCA FOR AERIAL FILMING UK

Overview of the Eclipse XL MCA advanced aerial cinematography camera

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.
