I have included file sizes in the image links.  Please take a moment to check these sizes before you begin downloading images for viewing.  Several of the JPS files are very large and will be painful to download over a modem link.

The images are presented in cross-eye and anaglyph format.  If you prefer a different format or size, please give the Stereoscope applet a try.

Stereo Vivid

circa 1955


If you are looking for a camera to shoot stereo slides, you may be advised to look for a 1950's camera that shoots images in the the Realist camera gave its name to the format "Realist" or 5P (5 perforations wide) format on 35mm film. There are many cameras that produce images of this size.  The most widely recognized of these is the one that gave its name to the format:  the Realist, from the David White company.  It is pictured to left with its lens cover open, ready for use.  Other popular cameras that produce this size images include the Revere 33, Kodak Stereo, TDC Colorist, and the TDC Vivid.  More details on all of these cameras (and more) can be found at

It is estimated that about 20,000 Vivids were built.  When compared to the 130,000 Realists and 110,000 Kodak Stereos, you can see that they were less common but by no means "rare".  I happen to own a well used version of the Stereo Vivid, produced by the Three Dimension Company (aka TDC) of Chicago Illinois.  It is, therefore, the only one I can knowledgably discuss.
