    5x7 Conley Stereoscopic Camera (Model XVIII)

    Does anyone have one of these?

    A fellow is offering to sell me one for a good price, but it is apparently missing the divider to split the image on the film. Otherwise, he says that it is basically like new and that the shutter works and sounds accurate.

    Having never peered inside of one of these, I donít know how likely it is that I could fabricate a workable replacement. If no one has an example I could see, I feel disinclined to do this.

    Here is an ad for the camera:

    Oops!

    He just sent me better photos of the camera. It is a Rochester Optical Stereo Poco.

    This one:

    So, I guess my question is instead, does anyone have one of these, and, if so, could I get some information and/or photos of the interior with the septum (or whatever itís called) in place?

    Thanks!

    The divider is simply a section of bellows. You can make one to fit by simply folding black construction paper. Glue reinforcing strips of wood on each end and place a rubber band over it to make sure it doesn't interfere with the image at far-away focusing.
