Stereoscopic Camera Building Project

This winter’s project is to try to convert this vintage glass plate camera into a stereoscopic camera for next summer’s Analogue Dragon Street Portrait Project.

Below is my “template” for what is needed to make my camera stereoscopic.   Mostly, I need to add a septum/divider to to the bellows.    And I need to find two lenses that identical enough to make two photographs at the same time.  Easy, right?  Oh!  And I need to adapt the back to accept a 5×7 film holder instead of glass plates.

While I am working on piecing these things together I think I will learn to make single images with it. ?  Maybe even put the camera on a slider and make stereoscopic images that way.!49274!US!-1:rk:1:pf:0
