I have had a Realist for a few years now and it's really a great camera but takes a bit of time to think in stereo. Camera is like a brick--Literally. By using hyperfocal focusing,you rarely miss a shot. Just repaired a flash sync problem with a couple of regular screwdrivers. Have boxes of mounted slides ,but never thought of positive stereoviews. Could be the answer when slide film runs out There are D*** ways to manipulate images for printout. Gonna drag out the projector one day and amuse the wife and kids
