The Operativity

- it keeps the perpendicularity of the lines in the frame, warranting the corrected shaped restitution, technical and professional, whether using cameras or video cameras.
- it adds creativeness to the shooting, especially in "broadcasting", where the lens mounted on a "floating plate" makes an atypical movement, fluid and "wave motion" until now never thought, similar to the "shuttle movement" of the "dynamic cinema" and some other "wake, motion” effects.
- FreeEye is right for the studio working, but also in the external shooting, it is able to make the same quality of a view camera, but in the time and way of a simple 35mm camera: the lens movement in photography allows "multiple exposure" without corrections between the merge of photos in post-production.

The Idea

"As the eye is free to roll into the eyelids, also a lens can freely move itself into the covering circle of the picture".
(Giancarlo Gardin, 1999/03/29, patent certified on the Research Report of the European Patent Office).

The Tool

FreeEye is an entirely mechanical precision instrument, realized with Durall115 metal bars, manufactured by Cambo Photographisce Industries: each piece is tested and guaranteed. It helps to shoot with correction of perspective, without complicated mechanisms not right for the practical work.

The System

- Lenses interchangeability: different optical systems among themselves by kind and format thanks to a sole floating adapter can be used in a new way.
- Cameras interchangeability: photo and video cameras, not compatible among themselves, today became this with the simple clutch of FreeEye.
