View Master Mark II Part 2Yesterday I posted about the View-Master Mark II camera. Since it's an unusual format, I wanted to share what the photos end up coming out like, and some ideas on what you could do with them. The camera is meant to shoot film to be put into View-Master slides. You would cut the squares out and then pair your two like images together (one taken with left lens, one with right at the same time) in the slide holder, and viewed in a View-Master.
I did some test shooting in regular color 35mm negative film, and then scanned the film in. Each exposure measures 12x13mm. Since the images are small, a normal 36 exposure roll will yield about 75 pairs of images. Below is a section of my film. You'll notice that the pairs are spaced out, see the 2nd exposure from left on the bottom row, and its pair is on the top row, 2nd from the right.
If you're interested in learning more about creating 3D images like these, this is the best and easiest online tutorial I've seen.
And want to get really crazy with your digital 3D images? The site Start 3D allows you to combine your two images into moving "3D" images.
