We have two different incredibly light rigs for the GoPro Hero3:
The first is a Fixed IA (32 mm) | Comes with the 3D Printed Rig, Software, Record Cable, 4-Multi Purpose USB cables
The second is an Adjustable IA Rig (38 mm – 64 mm) | Comes with the 3D Printed Rig, Software, Record Cable, 4-Multi Purpose USB cables
Both will come with the 3D Printed Rig, Software, Record Cable, 4-Multi Purpose USB cables.
A third coming soon will be the World’s Smallest Beam Splitter!
How the 3DGuy Hero3 3D System works:
You put your Hero3′s into the 3D printed rig and attach the Multi Purpose USB cables. These will make it easy to upload the software and connecting to you PC for downloading clips. It also works as a charging port for your Hero3s. But you cannot have the Hero3′s charging when you press the Record Cable. This way you don’t have to take them in and out of the rig.
The Record Cable starts your Hero3′s. You can use the connectors on the cable to hook up the GoPro LCD Bac’s so you can view your image. The touch screen does not work in this mode. In the picture, I modified a Hasbro My3D Viewer (not included) so that I can view in 3D.
The software works to automatically trigger the power ON, then activates recording for a preset time length, then pauses and turns OFF. This is the only way to get the sync that you need at this time. You can load the software to record for any length of time that you like. 30 seconds to 5 minutes. In my testing I found 60 seconds to me my most used record time. If I need more, I just hit the button again after shut off and it starts the cycle again.
