The work at Leadervision has produced three generations of single trigger, multi lens cameras. They have produced many unique lenticulars, reproduced as framed prints and fridge magnets. These lenticulars could be available for interested parties, please enquire,
Possibly the worlds first digital multi lens camera, the Mag7, consisted of seven 1.2Mpixel cameras (Creative Card Cam) mechanically triggered. The cameras were fully automated with no controls other than the trigger. To produce the X12, twelve of those same cameras were disassembled. The sensor chip was remounted at 90deg to the logic board to produce a fully integrated device with an electronic trigger. The 3rd generation VX12 saw a substantial resolution increase to 6Mpixel for each of twelve digital video recorders. It proved impractical to implement housing modifications so the units were mounted to a rigid frame and calibrated. A fibre optic splitter system distributes the trigger command and provides global control of a wide range of settings. The units have been used to create dozens of lenticular images, many of them portraits, not just of people but animals and other subject matter, such as smoke and water. The capture of dynamic events is unique to Leadervision lenticulars. The VX12 is also capable of live streaming multi view output. It is available for suitable projects, interested parties should contact LeaderVision.co.uk .

One of the most profound effects of good 3D portraits, lenticular or holographic, is the ability to make eye contact with the model in a way that photography simply does not compete with. It also provokes a sensation people often describe as spooky, it is unusual to see someone who appears to be real…so still.
Image 1- Dr Brian May kindly posed for a VX12 shot. It would be remis to not give ChannelFree visitors the opportunity to meet the man in this intimate way. The featured image forms the basis of an outstanding 8×10 lenticular. Image 2- Toby, owner Jon Street, MRI Engineering, carried out the excellent precision machining for the VX12. This is a link to his details on Google+. Image 3- A super model. Image 4- Timmy, an alpaca, a resident of The Llama Park. Image 5- Nick Cranch, freelance web developer, programmer and systems support specialist. Image 6- a meercat. This low res X12 image conveys a more realistic view of these ‘cute’ little creatures, look at those cute claws. As we are much bigger they are fun to work with though. Taken at Amazon World on the Isle of Wight. Image7- Tom, a llama, taken at The Llama Park. Image8- a ray, optimistically swimming with it’s nose out of the water hoping someone will tickle it. This should only be done if wearing clean rubber gloves. Taken at the Bluereef Aquarium, Hastings. Image9- a random pessimistic horse. Hoping that a bale of hay will suddenly appear but obviously and justifiably concerned that it won’t. Image10- Rocky n’ Rolly, not in that order. Two very close friends that are deeply missed.
