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.

I strive for browser independence.  Please let me know if you experience problems with these pages.  


Java Stereo Viewer

Many of these pages use a Java Stereoscope applet by
Andreas Petersik
. It made a Java convert out of me and I highly recommend it.

Image by 3D World.  Used with permission.The TL120 is fitted with a removable eye-level viewfinder. The viewfinder is square and evenly bright with # shaped framing marks which correspond to a 52mm square image. It provides a "normally" oriented view of the scene.

Instead of the 90 degree prism pictured here, the TL120 currently ships with a 45 degree prism with diopter adjustment and a rubber eye cup.

The center of of the view finder incorporates a micro-prism rangefinder to assist in focusing. In the lower right corner of the finder is a small spirit level.  The meter LEDs are positioned vertically along the right edge of the frame. 

The TL120 does not ship with a waist-level viewing hood.  You may remove the prism but in the absence of a hood, I find there is too much light on the ground-glass to be reliably used as a viewfinder.Image by 3D World.  Used with permission. (17424 bytes)  Hasselbad finders are said to be a drop-in item for the TL120.  I haven't yet purchased one, but have heard from others who regularly use them on their TL120.  While a Hasselblad finder may fit the TL120, the built in meter will not function without the 3D World prism installed.

The camera is focused by rotating the outer end of any lens barrel. The focus of all three lenses is synchronized through the center idle-gear.  In the image to the right, the camera is focused at infinity with the aperture at f/2.8 (why you would ever have your camera thus adjusted is beyond me).  Depth of focus for the different f-stops can also be read off the lens barrel..

Note that the viewing lens, while identical to the taking lenses, has a fixed 2.8 aperture.  This provides the maximum light for composing and the shortest depth of field for focusing but no DOF preview is possible.   Next
