MUMBAI: Liquid Pictures, today announced the world’s first camera system utilizing RED Digital Cinema cameras capable of shooting 4K 3D footage on land, underwater, and macro 3D. The proprietary Liquid Pictures 4K 3D Digital Cinema Camera System is built with a range of acquisition options, including the world’s first Digital 3D underwater beam splitter housing.
"We’re committed to producing mainstream 3D films and content that will entertain audiences with an immersive stereoscopic experience. Until now there was no all-in-one 3D camera system capable of wet or dry in a beam splitter configuration," said Liquid Pictures founder D.J. Roller.
"Because we’re working on 3D features, commercials, and films for 3D IMAX theaters, we needed a completely self contained system capable of shooting a spectacular vista, Hollywood action sequences, or a fingernail-sized creature at the bottom of the ocean."
After months of rigorous test shoots, the camera system proved itself last fall on a seven-week expedition to Micronesia during principal photography of a soon-to-be-announced 3D film co-produced by Liquid Pictures. Roller and his production team shot over a hundred hours of 4K 3D footage on location in jungles, aboard camera boats, and under water with the new camera system. Other industry firsts for the camera system include acquisition of 4K 3D macro footage, live real-time 3D monitoring and full wireless microwave control of camera functions–all underwater.
The Liquid Pictures 4K 3D Digital Cinema Camera System can also be adapted to use SonyF35, Phantom HD, and Phantom 65 cameras.
"This new camera system removes old boundaries, freeing us to take audiences on fantastic adventures and tell incredible stories in a whole new way," added Roller. "3D makes the screen disappear and transports you to another world."
