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.

Many of these pages use a Java Stereoscope applet by

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

Advanced Advancing

Back ]

Now that we have narrower images, the stock advance sequence is going to leave excessive gaps on the film.  We can recover that wasted space and use it for our free sixth stereo-pair. 

You could do a whole bunch of math to locate the correct stopping points in the advance sequence.  You could also take an old roll of backing paper and run it though the camera and mark the edges of the exposure areas.  Or, you could take advantage of the fact that I've already done both of those.

This is a simple matter of pasting a new label on the back of the door covering the film window.  It has more arrows on it but is used in a similar manner to the original "two arrow" indicator.  Now, instead of paying attention to markings for frames 1,2,4,5,7,8 we will use the markings for frames 1,2,3,5,6,8 (still on the 6x9 numbering line).

New Advance Sequence


I LabeledDoor.JPG (54177 bytes)have created an Adobe PDF for those who would like to print their own label.  It should be printed original size (without scaling).  When it comes off the printer, you should check to ensure that the distance from A to B is 78mm.  If so, cut it out and paste it onto the underside of your film advance door.

In the example shown, the camera is ready to expose it's second image-pair.  After exposure, the film will be advanced until the number 3 is centered under its arrow.  

As you can see, the numbers 1 and 8 (which represent the first and sixth image-pairs) need to be caught just as they immerge into the window from the right.  When approaching number 8 I've already seen number 7 disappear off the left side and  I can often hear the tail end of the film "tick" as it comes off the spool.  Both of these indicators help me anticipate the appearance of 8 in the window.  There are no such clues to help me locate image number 1. 

Hack up a collector's item?!  You are kidding . . . aren't you?

If you are a "serious" collector, I doubt you will want to monkey with your Rolleidoscop in the described manner.  But, if you are a "serious" collector, I doubt you are overly concerned that your 'scop is wasting a big chunk of each roll of film.  If, on the other hand, you are a shooter and expect your 'scop to do the job for which it was created, I can't think why you wouldn't want an free image on every roll of film.   Home
