Default fixed-lens Scarlet and 3D

Any reason you could imagine why the fixed-lens Scarlet couldn't support 3D shooting mode?

If you have 2 of them given the electronic lens control they're pretty perfect.

Aren't the lenses too big for two Fixed Scarlets to be stuck next to each other?

As long as they're not infinitely wide, I don't see a problem.

Ideally, you want the lenses to be as far apart as human eyes. If you are shooting miniatures, you want them even closer together - as close together as the scale-person's eyes.

For 3D, I'd go for the non-fixed camera and some physically small 16mm lenses.

Yes, the inter-ocular distance of the average human eye is the most ideal solution. Looks like some primes are on the scarlet's in the picture, but it's not like it won't work if they're further apart.

There is so much more visual language that can be created through 3d. By changing things such as the interocular distance.

A really cool concept that was that if you have multiple characters in a comp you can actually film each character with different interocular distances and convergences to make certain characters appear more round and others flat.

I highly recommend checking out the latest fxguidetv where they're discussing stereo film making:

Cab work with Beam-splitter instead of side by side.

exactly, then you've got total interocular control down to 1mm (or less if u gotta??)
Then switch to a side by side rig for stuff outside the 1.5 inch range (landscapes etc)

If the lenses got perfect electronic sync then they should be great in this sort of setup.
