    Small MF?

    Are there any MF camera models out there which are small enough to mount them sufficiently close as a stereo twin rig without an excessive lense separation? In other words, I'd like to mount a pair fairly close together, say ~3"from lens axis to lens axis. My Ricohflex is small, but the film advance knob would get in the way if I tried twinning it with another.

    Just had a thought, how 'bout mounting the two base's together. The film winders or focusing knobs would not be in the way.

    yeah, take a 1/4 20 bolt, cut off the head, and screw two TLRs together

    Bases together would get you around 3.5~ inches, at least with my Reolleicord here.

    Of course, since you're shooting square, they don't need to be both facing up. If you can get a little more involved with the mounting, you can put two TLRs side-by-side, wherein one is upside down and get an even tighter spacing… with my Rolleicords, it's right around 3".

    Of course, there are such things as MF stereo cams (many of them), e.g.,

    This is a pretty interesting idea, maybe interesting enough to make me want to find a couple of cheap TLRs and try it.

    How would one actuate both shutters at once? Are there Y-shaped release cables?

    Two Lubitel 166 cameras may work. They have pretty good glass lenses and the centre of the lens to bottom (including tripod bush and feet) is 1.75 inches. Of course putting the bases together on a TLR isn't so easy because of the direction the back opens.

    There are double cable releases. Hasselblad offered one for some time (for close up work).

    Two folders like Zeiss Super Ikontas, mounted from the base would get the lenses pretty close together.
