Kodak Stereo Camera

The Kodak Stereo Camera was made from 1954-59, and takes 24mm square exposures on standard 35mm film. Its body is made of brown bakelite, and it has a handy bubble level which you can see when you look through the viewfinder.

I got lucky with this one -- it had a "buy it now" of $15 !

    What a great looking unusual camera. Would love one in my collection.

    $15 for the camera. How much for a stereo viewer?
    Seen next to a fellow photo of Camera porn (Pictures of cameras). (?)

    Just before, I got the mailbox of a Kodak stereo camera from USA. I really expect what its result will be.

    Better share your stereo photos on Phereo.com, a very good place to put 3D photos online. Has all necessary functions such as automatic conversion to different 3D viewing modes, embedding, etc.

    My father in law gave me his after showing me his 3D wedding slides from 1955. Those came out in 1954. You can get nice slip-in slide mounts here www.3dstereo.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&S... . Here is a multi-format film cutter and they also sell a separate small light box the cutter will fit on here www.berezin.com/3d/mounts.htm#Light .For mine, I found a Brumberger lighted stereo viewer on eBay. I later got 2 AA to D size battery adapters which let me put 2 Energizer Lithium batteries in the viewer and I put an LED bulb in it for extra battery life. The amazing thing about the Kodak Stereo Camera is the lens. They are good quality glass lenses and when you shoot distance shots, you can see everything razor sharp from the fore ground to as small as your brain can register. I took a picture of some longhorn cows that ended up looking amazing. You have definitely got to shoot some slides with this on Elite Chrome 200. And be sure to take it on vacation with you. Here's mine that I shot with a little creative lighting and a Nikon D80

    Great camera, I get a lot of use out of the two that I own. I just went on vacation at Disney World a few months ago and shot 4 rolls of film with mine, the camera almost always gets a comment wherever I pull it out, and in crowd shots there is usually someone in the photo that was staring at the camera when I took the photo.
