A few days ago and after a discussion about Camera Toss as a 3D model I had the idea what will will happen if I toss 2 cameras synchronously. The goal of this idea was to produce image from a different view, like if you watch it with your own eyes.
For this project I used two of my cameras: 1. Nikon L10 2. Sony DSC P8 and I taped the cameras side by side on a small plank.
Ok, the dual camera was ready, now how to press the trigger on both simultaneously?
I had two options:
First: Use the Self-Timer
Second: push both triggers manually and simultaneously
First I tried the Self-Timer method, but due to the fact that the cameras are of different model there was the problem to start the Self-Timer on both cameras at the same time. I played a while with both cameras and I almost got i, but there was sometime a delay so the image of one camera was taken a little bit earlier the other image. So I tried the second option "push the triggers manually and simutaneously". First I pushed the trigger on both cameras half the way so both can set the focus and the metering, then I pusheded the triggers to take a image as normal and while I pushed the trigger I started tossing the dual camera device into the air.
