I haven't used one first hand, but I was part of a group that got their photo taken with Peter Max when he donated a painting to Yahoo! it is a pretty cool device, I'd love to play with one.

I have a Nishika 35mm. It is fixed focus, has one shutter speed, and the apertures are sunny,cloudy etc. You could do the same thing buy just taking a photo, shifting the camera a few inches to the left or right, and taking another picture. The easiest way would be to use some sort of platform or angle iron as the guide rail.

For a long time, the "Stereo Realist" (see another message somewhere about "Realist") was certainly the camera of choice. I've never used one myself, but a friend here in Ipswich is into "stereo" big time - and that is what he uses. I think it uses ordinary 35mm films, exposing two frames simultaneousy, with the proper spacing. The Realists haven't been produced for some time, and finding one now is difficult. I think they had f/3.5 Lenses, and shutter speeds to 1/300th (?? I could be 'way wrong here).

Ahhh...the old stereopticon! Neat idea. I have seen a few LF cameras that were designed for such things on EPay on ocassion. Pretty nifty.

What I was thinking of doing was making some old style cards That were put in those woooden antique stereoscopes. They would be done in black and white fiber, and I would hand color them just like was done back then. Start a retro look thing going. </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
Ever hear of the trick of shooting the moon at moonrise and moonset and putting the results in a stereopticon? Startling effect of turning the moon into a ball.

Not to bring up the D word, but if you get your hands on those kitschy 3d glasses, you can combine both shots digitally, tweak the left/right colors, and view a 3D image on your monitor through the glasses. Done right, it can be pretty cool.
