Men and women rolling off shields and spears clashing versus swords as the digicam zooms in and out wildly will make the hallmark action sequences in the movie 300 so iconic. Unfortunately, reaching this result was not significantly simple. A few cameras have been rolling, every single with a unique lens (100mm, 50mm, and 21mm) to capture a distinct watch of the very same scene. In write-up-manufacturing, you can considerably switch in between the a few cameras considering the fact that the shot is synchronized. The folks above at [Corridor Crew] wanted to recreate the influence, but relatively than produce a customized mount to keep a few high priced cameras, they 3d printed a customized mount to maintain 3 pricey smartphones.

Although there are a few cameras on the again of most phones, most telephones just can’t shoot in slo-mo from all cameras at the same time. So they would require a rig to hold three phones. The 1st layout was very simple and just brackets to hold telephones. Though nice and sturdy, having the telephones in or out wasn’t quick, and receiving to the file button was tough. iPhones have this helpful little magnetic ring on the back again. They experienced a bracket that labored rather properly immediately after a few iterations on the layout and some printer problems. Given that every camera has optical impression stabilization, it is straightforward for the lenses to get out of alignment, which can mar the shot. Even so, they to some degree lined up the impact in put up. With a working prototype, the only matter left to do was to slice a bunch of piñatas in sluggish movement with a thrumming soundtrack.

We adore seeing fascinating digicam setups and iterating to obtain a little something that works. This dual-digital camera setup has a really distinct goal and attempts to lean into the parallax impact instead than disguise it. Online video following the break.
