Funeral Party - “Finale”

This is my pal Colin’s Stereo Realist- a #35mm #stereocamera built between 1947-1971 by the David White Company, an American manufacturer of survey equipment. Apparently it was quite popular in its day- Colin told me he’s read anecdotes where buyers were trading their Leicas for them. The camera itself is utterly strange (rangefinder on the bottom!?) but extremely solid. This is a actually the camera that got Colin into photography years ago- it’s best with slide film- for viewing the images the photographer mounts the two frames per each exposure into a slide holder and inserts them into the 3D viewer. If you haven’t already experienced street photos snapped on Velvia 50 that are backlit and take up your entire field of vision in 3D it’s hard to imagine (or explain!) how jaw-dropping the experience is. He brought a viewer to a nerdy photog party a while back and one by one everyone who peeked through the viewer made that Oculus face- pretty cool that a camera/technique from the late 1940s can still do that. #ShootFilm #Tokyo #CameraStyle #フィルムカメラ #3Dphotography #3Dcamera #Shibuya by tokyocamerastyle http://ift.tt/1QnJRvh
