Large Interaxial GoPro 3D Rig

The recently introduced GoPro Dual Hero system was welcome but its short interaxial may be seen as a problem when shooting large scenes requiring more separation between the lenses. That is why David Newman, Director of Software Engineering at GoPro, designed a new 3D printed stereoscopic rig holding two GoPro cameras with 90 mm (3.5 inches) interaxial separation.

Material: White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.

Price: $84.95

More Info

The Dual HERO System was announced earlier this year by GoPRO; it is now available directly from the manufacturer for $219,00. 

To extend the GoPro synchronisation cable to 90mm, no soldering is required, it is just a matter of removing a screw and reorienting the cable.
