Expand the Capabilities of your
Sony DEV-5 & DEV-3
3D Digital Recording Binoculars!
Cyclopital3D makes two accessories to enhance the capabilities of your Sony Digital Recording Binoculars: a Filter/Close-up Adapter (FCA) and a Stereo Base Extender (SBE). These units fit both the Sony DEV-3 and DEV-5 models.
The Cyclopital3D Filter/Close-up Adapter (FCA) is a universal adapter that expands the capabilities of your Sony 3D 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
- 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)

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, weddings or portraits. The 31mm fixed lens spacing of the Sony DEV-5 and DEV-3 Digital Recording Binoculars limits how far away from the camera your subject can be while still achieving a high quality 3D image that displays adequate depth. As you get farther away from your subject parallax decreases, thus decreasing the 3D effect in the image. The SBE can help improve your results!
The SBE uses perfectly aligned high quality front surface mirrors to effectively increase the stereo base from 31mm to 135mm. This
lengthening of the stereo base allows you to get 4X 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 3D, depending on the background.
Benefits and Features:
- Increases the Stereo Base (lens spacing) from 31mm to 135mm
- Record subjects that are 4x further away while enhancing the 3D effect with increased depth
- Easily attaches to the tripod mount
- Anti-reflective glass covers on front
- Size: 252x125x198mm (WxHxD)
