    No evidence he is using film. Quote from here: http://www.amateurphotographer.co.u...an-may-interview-crazy-little-thing-called-3d

    From brianmay.com "These are the first two series of 12, plus two bonus cards for each set. It's very satisfying to see these 'wet proofs' - here laid out on a rug - after all this time ... the result of many updates and re-edits. It's Queen in the Freddie days, at various times … converted from 35mm film stereos - mainly using a Stereo Realist camera."

    I missed that , thanks for posting.
    I saw the above mentioned wet plate info, but is that stereo wet plate? I wasn't sure.

    Either way May is an interesting fellow. Built a much better guitar than Eddie...:smile:

    When I was growing up, the two guitarists that came to mind with the phrase "built their own guitar" were Brian May and Eddie Van Halen. Though Eddie's was 'built' with off-the-shelf components.

    His father made a guitar for him, I usually associate him with the L5?
