Horseman shows the SW-D2 Pro, a super wide angle camera, the LD Pro, a high-end camera back accessory for adding bellows functions, and the Horseman 3D Stereo Camera at Photokina. The Horseman will highlight three new products at Photokina this week, including the SW-D2 Pro super wide angle camera, the LD Pro high-end camera back, and the Horseman 3D stereo camera. The Horseman SW-D2 Pro is a higher-end version of the SWD large format digital camera announced earlier this year. The Horseman SW-D2 Pro will feature additional mount compatibility for the SWD interchangeable digital back system, plus some new design improvements that open new dimensions for large format digital photography.
One of the most advanced 3D stereo cameras ever developed was announced today by Horseman, which is in a joint venture with Rolleiflex to develop professional level cameras and accessories. Called the Horseman 3D, the new camera features the ability to make stereo pictures of high-speed moving objects, such as flying birds, jumping animals, a spray of water, and indoor or night scenes. These kinds of shots were difficult with conventional stereo cameras, but are routine with the Horseman 3D Stereo Camera because of a unique 24x65mm size electronically controlled focal plane shutter that allows perfect synchronization of right and left images up to 1/1000sec. shutter speed.
