I spoke about this in detail in a recent Inside Analog Photo podcast if you are interested.
I'll 2nd this recommendation, I bought a sputnik about 6 months ago and it's become my new obsession. Stereo 6x6 slides create the most amazing images I've ever seen.



I didn't expect much out of the optics of an old russian camera, but I've been impressed--very good contrast and sharp at all apertures.

Sputnik's in great condition sell for around $200 online.

While I haven't hand any problems with mine, I've heard these cameras can be prone to light leaks, there's an excellent online resource dealing with modifications and improvement to these cameras: http://www.rmm3d.com/3d.encyclopedia...m/sputnik.html
