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.

Many of these pages use a Java Stereoscope applet by

. It made a Java convert out of me and I highly recommend it.

Image by 3D World.  Used with permission. (32477 bytes)When these page was first written (September, 2006), I had not yet seen any images from the camera.  I have since put many rolls of film through my TL120 and am always pleased with the results. The lenses are wonderfully sharp and seem to be distortion free.  

I have scanned one example image from the camera as well as a crop from the same image.  It is one of the better images from the very first roll out of the camera but is simply film slapped on the scanner.  It is not a mounted image and I am not an expert with a scanner.  When viewing this image, please consider that a scanned image on a computer screen does no justice to the original image on film.

The TL120 is heavy but fairly well balanced.  I wouldn't try using this camera without a substantial neck strap.  For best results, you will need to use a tripod and it had better not be a light-weight one.

Ergonomically, it is an improvement over the Sputnik but there are a couple of oddities.  The most significant is difficulty I have using the internal meter.  The shutter-speed knob is located very close to the viewfinder shell which makes it very difficult to quickly adjust the shutter speed.  While peering through the viewfinder and pressing the meter button with my left thumb it is very awkward to adjust the shutter speed with my right hand.  It is much easier to half-press the shutter button with my right index finger and adjust the aperture with my left hand. Used this way, the camera becomes a shutter-priority camera when what I really want for my stereo views is aperture-priority.  I continue to use my hand-held meter for most of my shooting.   Next


  • Are you interested in seeing what's inside the TL120?
  • After shooting too many dark frames while the camera is being carried in my pack, I've made a small shutter lock for my TL120.
  • In some early versions of the TL120, the take-up spool could slip off the advance-spindle.  I made a small shim for my camera to prevent this from happening. This shim is unnecessary in the 2007 camera.
  • For historical interest, I have retained the comments I made in 2006.
