    Also look into Virtual Stereo viewing Directly without aperatus. Go the big U.K. Stereo site where he explains it. I just did with your posted generator pair on my iPod.

    Basicly you loosely stare at a stereo pair until you can merge them. It works!

    How about the following, but sideways . . .

    Of course, this is set up for portraiture (an excellent set up for that purpose), so one can remove the viewer, turn it on its side, etc.

    Re: How to Build a Stereo LF Camera

    This thread got me thinking so......
    I set up a Cambo 4x5 with both standards shifted as far right as possible, took a shot. I then shifted both standards 67mm to the left, took second shot.
    Then I contact printed them side by side. I can not "unfocused" my eyes enough to make them merge but I can force myself to go cross-eyed and see them in 3D with some straining.

    Then I scanned them, if I zoom out to the point that the points in the image are 67mm apart on the screen (or smaller) it is pretty easy to unfocus and see the images as 3D.
    I made the pair fill the screen of a 27" iMac and took a picture of the screen with my phone, viewing it small makes it look really good.

    I choose 67mm because thats distance between my pupils. Yours may be different. If you have a tough time seeing this in 3D make the image smaller on your screen, or view on a smaller screen

    Thought I put up an answer to you DrTang a couple of days ago..... Seems it went south... anyway you are 100% correct. The other 2 that came with the stereo camera were Kodaks so my fingers ran off at the mouth. Only mark on it is "Capi" I think they were a Dutch retailer so probably re badged. Love this thread!

    Photonsoup - your image works well with a touch of ctrl-scroll to zoom out the image; no viewer required.

    Your method was one of the options used around the end of the 19th century; a similar approach used a parallel link on the tripod mount to shift the camera a few inches to one side while maintaining the forward view.

    At the front it seems to say: ICA Act Ges , which is short for Internationale Camera Action Gesellschaft (International Camera [Shares] Company)
    The one you have is probably the ICA Stereo Ideal nr. 651:

    www.berezin.com sells the Hyper-View stereo viewer $165. It works great and was designed by David Lee, who was a great stereographer.
    Real cameras are measured in inches...
    Not pixels.

    Re: How to Build a Stereo LF Camera

    Alright - this whole thread got me wondering..so I checked out in my storage area and sure enough - a Polaroid Miniportrait 202 (I think) - it focuses at 4 feet , and was made for the 545 holders..but it accepts a graphmatic just fine

    I shot a couple tests.. cropped two of them. Thing is - after scanning, I had to swap the images left for right. it would have been fine upside down (in the orientation they were taken), but turn them right side up and now the left is on the right


    here's the camera:



    and here are the pix:
