 Lens Adapters for DEV-50, DEV-5 & DEV-3
Cyclopital3D makes several accessories to enhance the capabilities of your Sony Digital Recording Binoculars:  a Stereo Base Extender (SBE), Filter/Close-up Adapter (FCA) and a Wide-angle Lens.
Filter/Close-up Adapter for DEV-3 & DEV-5

The Cyclopital3D Filter/Close-up Adapter (FCA) is a universal adapter that expands the capabilities of your Sony Digital Recording Binoculars by enabling the use of a multitude of accessory filters, lenses and other attachments. These attachments include close-up lenses, neutral density filters, a matte-box, lens hoods, or other specialty attachments. Most of the optional attachments function the same way in a 3D environment as they do in 2D cinematography, with the exception of close-up lenses, which are fundamentally different.

In 3D cinematography, the close-up lens allows the camera to achieve convergence on the subject closer than what is possible without the additional close-up lens. It also increases the common image seen by both lenses, thus reducing the amount of image loss commonly experienced in 3D close-up photography and videography. We recommend purchasing a high-quality close-up lens that corrects for chromatic aberration because a single close-up lens mounted on the FCA is used off-axis to achieve the aforementioned benefits.The FCA is perfect for documentaries and close-up interviews!

Benefits and Features:
  • Easily attaches to the tripod mount of the camcorder
  • 86mm lens ring may be stepped up or down as needed
  • Includes Vivitar series one close-up lens set
  • 77mm step-down ring is included for free
  • Add neutral density filters, polarizing filters, gradient filters, lens hoods, matte-box, close-up lenses or other specialized attachments
  • +3 or +5 close-up lens can be attached to improve overlap of right and left images. A close-up lens also Increases the range of parallax to accommodate near subjects
  • Size: 112x105x82mm (WxHxD)
  • Weight: 230 grams

NEW! Stereo Base Extender and Wide-angle Lens for Sony DEV-50v. 

"This camera is an engineering marvel!" says Ken Burgess, Product Design Engineer for Cyclopital3D.

Now you can get better 3D on your distance shots by effectively widening the stereo base of your camera!

DEV-50V Stereo Base Extender

The  Cyclopital3D  Stereo  Base  Extender (SBE) is  perfect for maintaining  accurate  depth portrayal when  subjects  are more  distant from the  camera,  such  as:  wildlife,  band  or theatrical  performances and sporting event (particularly from high vantage points). 

The fixed lens spacing of cameras can limit how far away your subject can be while still achieving a high quality 3D image that displays realistic depth. As a general rule, the parallax decreases the  farther away you get from your subject, thus decreasing the 3D effect in the image. The SBE can help improve your results!

The Stereo Base Extender incorporates perfectly aligned high quality front surface mirrors to effectively increase the stereo base of the camera. This lengthening of the stereo base allows you to get further away from your subject while still maintaining an optimal level of parallax.

This SBE is only needed for subjects farther than about 4m from the camera. It is important to remember that your subject should generally be the closest object in the scene. When using the SBE, objects in the foreground closer than 4m could cause excessive deviation and make the image uncomfortable to view in 3D, depending on the background.

DEV-50V Wide-angle Lens
Having the ability to capture a wider field of view can often make the difference of whether a shoot is successful or not. This Wide-Angle Lens doubles the field of view seen by the camera from with zoom-through capabilities.

The built-in lens shade will be useful for both indoors and outdoors shooting to block reflections. The lenses also have a 62mm lens ring for attaching filters. Note that it is necessary to zoom in very slightly to alleviate vignetting in the corners and like most wide-angle lens there is slight barrel distortion that can be easily removed in post by geometric correction software. Correction for barrel distortion is often not necessary in landscapes but is usually recommended for architecture.

Benefits and Features:
  • Incorporates two Raynox 5050Pro .5x, triplet (3 element) lenses
  • Essentially doubles the camera's field of view from 57 to 90 degrees; 35mm EQFL from 35mm to 18mm
  • Built in lens shade
  • Front lens caps
  • Rings allow for 62mm filter attachment
  • Easy attaches to tripod mount
