A detective challenge for this wonderful community of experts: I am working on a science museum exhibit about the different ways animals can see light. I am trying to reverse engineer the incredible beam-splitting camera rig used in the production of David Attenborough's 'Life in Color' It seems like two Sony A7s at 90 degrees with a beam splitter that passes UV only and reflects full spectrum light. Sadly for this purpose, most modern lenses have uv-blocking coatings on many elements, making UV videography difficult.
- Is anyone able to recognize this lens pair? It looks like a older Nikkor prime lens, but I cannot tell more from this shot.
- Is anyone able to ascertain what the specs of the filter/beam splitter is? I assume it is UV-bandpass, but I am far from an expert.
