Low mode 3D. Has anybody done it? Is it even possible with the current rigs?

absolutely.....I've done it on 6 different rigs already. It's a pain. Just hope your hardmounted! Even on the lighter rigs that I've been using lately it can get alot to handle after a few mins....

Most of the time I just go "poorman" style and just flip my rig over. They just flip/flop the image in post later. Although with the ET rig you can actually mount it from the top if you wanted....

This is me on the beach in the sand shooting for discovery channel 3D...Element Technica neutron with Si2k's

That tall post is one of the reason's that the Tiffen rigs are ill-suited for flying large payloads

Just saying.....

Not sure I understand? The post is tall because we had to extend it so things would balance out. The shorter the post the more batteries/weight we would have to add. To balance this rig out, the post was fully extended and we had to use 4 batteries!!! So if anything a long post is a good thing!

The ultra2 may not be the best suited actually because of the tilting top stage makes the total stage height longer/taller. Thus increasing the distance between gimbal and the base of the "camera". The longer this distance is .....or the farther the gimbal is from the camera.....the more you have to extend the post and add battery weight.

On my PRO2/XCS post rig the minimum distance from gimbal to camera is much shorter than the ultra2. making it better suited for most 3D work...
