    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!

    Don't shoot me, but wouldn't it be cheaper and equal or higher photographic quality to just get two Rolleiflexes on a stereo bar?

    (yes)

    But I agree, where's the fun in that!

    Stereo bar? Not sure what that is. I'm in the process of trying to build my own 120 stereo camera, but who knows when that will happen (if ever.) Foremost though, that camera is just a thing of beauty!

    Old flash bars work well, and a guy on eBay makes a stereo bar.

    Here's what I had in mind -> http://cgi.ebay.com/Twin-SLR-DSLR-Ca...item335d6d51fa

    Two cameras and boom, you're doing 3D with as high quality a setup as you would normally use.

    And check this Rollei unit out... http://cgi.ebay.com/Rolleiflex-Stere...item5d2feff1aa (though this is designed for 1 camera and to switch positions between exposures)

    That seems like the images would be way too far apart...for my usage. Aren't those more for far away stuff? I tend to shoot things up close and personal!

    Well, they're adjustable, but you're right depending on what camera you use. Like an SLR probably would be pushed too far apart, but 2 Rolleiflex's might be able to approach the interocular distance (62-65mm).
