    Stereo photography

    I wanted to start a thread about stereo photograhy, but couldn't find a forum. Do you reckon this is the right place? I wanted to ask advice about different techniques to produce stereo images...

    Either no stereo photography fans... or this is the wronge place.
    Seems a bit quiet in here. Let's try somewhere else.

    stereo vs. mono

    Nishika N8000 is the "current" method which uses 4 images

    stereoscopic imagery is the kind found in antique stores

    Hi Steve,
    I've had a passing interest from time to time, mainly via the Pentax stereo adaptor and viewer set for transparencies. It's surprisingly effective in the right circumstances. I also bought a fairly elderly stereo print viewer and a set of sepia stereo prints that came with it, mainly showing scenes from the Empire (as was). I've occasionally thought of shooting b/w film on the Pentax adaptor and then printing the results as stereo pairs to use in the print viewer but (like so many things) haven't got around to it.
    I do tend to regard stereo as little more than a gimmick really, as the results whilst interesting are rarely realistic, usually giving several distinct flat objects at different distances rather than the continuously variable effect we normally perceive.
    Two weeks ago I attended the BVE exhibition at Earl's Court, where the flavour of the minute is stereo TV. Things have definitely moved on since a couple of years ago, but as long as stereo viewing (TV or otherwise) necessitates the use of special glasses, I have to put it largely in the same category as Sensurround sound, automatic windscreen wipers, self-cleaning ovens, etc.. One exception is in the field of aerial photography, where geological surveying techniques make very good use of deliberately exagerated stereo images to study land forms.
    My most amazing experience of stereo cimematography was at Bradford Film and TV Museum, where I saw "Ghosts of the Abyss", a film of the wreck of the Titanic at the IMAX.

    Actually, I've restarted this thread on the exposure forum...

    I'll be getting my wrists slapped by the moderators for having two threads going at once.

    The Nishika makes lenticular pictures, which isn't what I'm after... but thanks for the link, the site contains lots of other useful stuff, including 3D glasses of various types

    This website tells you everything you'll want to know (hopefully!), but it appears to be down and thus you can only get to it via the wayback machine.

    I'm hoping to do some polarized stereo projections soon. Shoot me a PM if you want to discuss!

    Cheers,

    Chris H.

    I would like to do polarized stereo projections (using left- and right- circular polarisation, so you can use the Real-D glasses you get free from the cinemas lately) and have shot some 6x7 chromes with that in mind. However I don't have even one 6x7 projector, let alone two!

    So far I can view my images crosseye by putting them adjacent in a sleeve, or by scanning them and putting them adjacent on the screen.

    We have an active stereo photography organization here in Portland, Oregon, USA. You might find some useful information or links through their website.
