Redrock was showing this rig last year at the Canon Expo, and they are now listing it on their site:
The Redrock micro3D SxS is a state-of-the-art rig for 3D production using two video cameras in a side by side (SxS) configuration. This rig features locking adjustments, precision machining, all-metal constructions, and the full complement of adjustments demanded by professional 3D setups.
The micro3D SxS is designed with smaller size and weight in mind to minimize demands that large heavy 3D rigs place on productions. The micro3D rig is optimized for small format cameras such as the Canon XF105, but can support larger cameras including the Canon XF305, Sony EX3, and even the Red ONE.

A Quick look at the Sony HDR-TD10
Julie Babcock writes a short, but surprisingly upbeat assessment of the Sony 3D HDR-TD10 (I say surprisingly, because Camcorderinfo's review of the difficulties with the JVC 3D camcorder made it sound like shooting good 3D was very difficult - at least with that camera.)
As skeptical as I had been, and as silly as it may sound, I really couldn’t help but say, “wow!” once I actually saw the LCD display in action.VideoMaker: A Quick Look at the Sony TD10 Full HD 3D Camcorder
Overall, the TD10 made shooting in 3D fun. In auto mode, it’s as easy as pointing the camera and recording.
EOS Canon 7D Firmware Update
The 5D Mark II Team website reports a new firmware release for the Canon 7D:
Canon has released a new firmware update for the EOS 7D . It includes some fixes and improvements, but there is still no option to disable AGC (auto gain control).Weird indeed, this firmware refers to a previous version (1.2.4) that was not widely announced. Moreover, this new version 1.2.5 still doesn’t appear on Canon USA website at the time of writing this article.5DMarkIITeam: EOS 7D Firmware Update 1.2.5
