Rolls 60-63 Saving the Best for Last

All stereo pairs are crossed unless otherwise noted. I have struggled with how to teach people to “free view” stereo photo pairs, but THIS might help.

Expressobuzz got me thinking about stereo photographs last summer when he showed me a slide viewer and some medium format stereo slides he shot. I emerged from the Schlaboratory with the Two-Headed Turtle not long after.

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).

All photos made with Velvia 50 (RVP50) or Velvia 100 (RVP100). I leave it to you, gentle reader, as to which shots were RVP100.

  1. These are really cool Schelm, and I love the colours.

    I learned to “free view” with air photos a few decades ago. I find it much harder on a computer screen, unless it is the size of, say, an airphoto. Are you going to be around here in 2016?
