Based on the terraPin 6X6, the 2HT has a parallax of 61m, which is close to the human eye, but preserves full frames with a usable spacing. Initially, I wanted to gang the shutters with some kind of linkage, but concerned about play and precision, I oriented the shutters to have a balanced and opposite motion – the levers spread to open, and pinch to close. I have been delighted with the results from this camera. All stereo pairs edited with StereoPhoto Maker software (on Linux, under WINE).
