Depending on your event type you need to select the perfect Multi Camera Array.This blog will help you to select the best multi camera array for events.
What Is A Multi Camera Array
Let us first begin with the fundamentals and explore what a multi-camera array rig really is? I’m not going to go into the technical information and try to keep things as simple as possible. The multi-camera array is a set of cameras that are either straight, angled, or circularly mounted side by side. There are three different types of arrays 90 degrees, 180 degrees, and 360 degrees. Each type of effect depends on the number of cameras you want to have on the array.
The cameras won’t stay on the pattern on their own. That’s why you have to provide strong support to your cameras since they are lined one by one. It ‘s vital that you build a stable foundation for your cameras as you do not want the cameras to shake or change position. In a general sense, the camera array is a solid structure that holds multiple cameras in a pattern to create bullet time effect.
Types Of The Multi Camera Array
Now you know what a multi camera array and also know there are three types of effect. Here is a brief explanation of the types of multi camera arrays.
1. Nano Multi camera Array
This camera array also is known as a nano or portable multi camera array. This type of array consists of 6 cameras and creates almost a 90-degree effect. This type of array stays straight horizontally. The nano multi camera array is becoming more and more popular these days due to low cost and high popularity.
2. 180 Multi camera Array
The 180 multi camera array is the successor of the nano multi camera array and this array is slightly curved to get that 180 degree effect. This array consists of 8 to 18 cameras. When building the array you need to make sure you have the right angle. Now for the camera, you can create 90 degrees with 8 to 10 cameras and 180 degrees using 15 to 18 cameras. Take the size of the array and divide it with the number of cameras. The number you get is the space between each camera.

3. 360 Multi Camera Array
The 360 camera array takes everything to the next level. This is a huge structure with 20 to 100 cameras and more if you wish. As the name suggests this type of array creates a 360 degree effect. Using this array you will be able to create a 360 bullet time effect. Usually, the array is placed on the ground and it is round in shape. Take the diameter of the array and divide it with the number of cameras you have. The number will tell you the gap between each camera. Just place the cameras one by one and start shooting.
