Screenplane X-Y Mount

Sebastian Cramer, inventor of the Mini Skater Dolly, has something new.

He wanted to use zoom lenses on his RED cameras for stereography. And, he wanted to be able to zoom during the take. For this, proper alignment of lens and camera is crucial, but hard to achieve. So he came up with a simple,ingenious idea, the X-Y mount.

With his rig, made of carbon and titanium, the lens centering can be adjusted 1 mm in any direction, providing a perfect match of the lens with the camera. The combination of the two materials is more resistant to temperature changes than aluminum.
