    If the age of the Earth were represented by the length of an (American) football field, then the average human lifespan would be represented by 1/73 the width of an average human hair.

    Life is hideously short.

    Wait until 5 seconds before the auction ends. Place a bid high enough to guarantee you will win. Then make some wonderfully cool stereo photos and share them with us here on APUG.

    The original owner's 1/73 of a hair is now gone forever. Yours (and mine) will be gone soon enough. So don't even give this decision a second thought.

    You know, you absolutly must buy the viewer he has for sale to go with the camera.

    I've been doing/loving stereo E-6 with my Sputnik, but the camera is a real piece of junk. This would mean I could get good results again! The guy that designed it showed me his B&W stereo slides from pre-war Germany. All I can say is UNBELIEVABLE. I have never, ever seen something so amazing.

    That viewer is darn nice, too. Ack. I can only imagine the camera is going to go for $1500-$2k. A fella can dream...

    Can you imagine DR5-processed B&W reversals? Wow...

    Dreaming won't secure this camera. Bidding $5,000 in the final 5 seconds will. A casket can cost twice that, and trust me, you won't get nearly the amount of joy out of using that as you will from using this camera...

    Yes, but I was wondering how they are reproduced to give the 3D effect. Or is the center lens just a viewing lens, and the rest like a normal stereo camera?

    I think that's it, yes. The center lens would be like the upper viewing lens in a TLR? The other two then just a normal stereoscopic pair?

    As far as reproducing from negatives to give a 3D effect, one doesn't even need the separate viewer...

    If standard prints are made, and the prints are arranged side-by-side at the same distance as separates your eyes, and you look down at them and allow your eyes to relax to infinty (i.e., look through them, not at them), then with a little effort they can be perceived to snap into 3D without the need for an external viewer.

    I can't believe the price started so low. I've got to keep track of this to see what it goes for. Hope you get it. I would think it would be an investment as well as fun to use. Just take good care of it - it's a piece of history!
