Some of the best and most popular cameras on the market are now Sony mirrorless cameras. With small cameras like the Sony a7C and high-resolution systems like the a7R IV, photographers can choose from a wide range of options for almost any type of photography. This seems to be true even more when 144 Sony cameras are put together in a rig that works in sync.

A company called Peris Digital is just outside of Madrid, Spain. Peris Digital was started in 2021. It is a branch of Peris Costumes, which has been making costumes since 1856. The small digital branch of the costume company uses an impressive rig made up of 144 Sony cameras to make high-resolution digital scans.

The Sony a7C and the Sony a7R IV are the cameras that Peris Digital uses for its rig. The Sony a7C is great because it’s one of the smallest full-frame cameras on the market and it’s not too expensive. The Sony a7R IV is a mirrorless camera with a more standard size. It has a full-frame sensor with 61 megapixels, which gives it a lot of resolution.

The Sony 85mm f/1.8 and the 50mm f/1.8 are the main lenses used with these cameras. These two full frame lenses from Sony are two of the least expensive ones you can buy right now. But they make great things happen. The Sony 135mm f/1.8 GM lens is the only high-end lens used in the rig. This is one of Sony’s sharpest lenses on the market right now.

Because it has a long focal length and a wide aperture, the Sony 135mm GM lens is often used for portraits. But it looks like Peris Digital is using its ability to resolve to make the most detailed scans.

With the rig shown above, which has two cameras and three lenses, the company can make 3D scans that are very detailed. What’s most interesting is that Peris Digital has set up all of the cameras so that they all fire their shutters at the same time. When this is done and some post-production work is done, the results are arguably better than CGI.

“Photogrammetry” is the process of taking many pictures of a scene or object and then putting them together to make a 3D digital model. Many people in the industry seem to choose this method because it is fast and accurate. Even developers of triple-A games like this method better than CGI because it gets better results faster.

Something like this might not be possible for most of us. This is mostly because having such a set-up costs a lot of money. Based on the current retail price, the Peris Digital rig would almost certainly cost more than $250,000. This doesn’t even include the lights and space that would be needed. Still, it’s interesting to see how modern cameras are changing businesses all over the world.
