Nikon D50 with 07-14-APS13x18 Lens

The stereo macro lens is suitable for most common SLR camera of your choice and provides first class stereo pictures 24x18 mm. with incredible depth of field. The reflex viewing system of the SLR is not used because the stereo lens system is permanently set at its very small operating aperture and requires one flashlight.

A wire frame finder is used, which comes complete with the stereo lens assembly.
This allows very fast and accurate framing and focusing, and is ideally suited for macro photography. A white reflection plate close to the subject prevents to strong shadows.







To cover a wide range of subject sizes, a complete range of 5 stereo lens sets is available, each lens set having a pre-set operating distance and a pre-set field of view.

Each of the lens systems comprises of two individual lenses within a single lens body and each assembly has a unique inter lens distance, suited for that subject size.
This results in correct stereo depth when the picture is viewed.
The typical operating aperture of each lens is very small, such an aperture is normally not available with a standard macro lens system but vital for the extra depth of field and sharpness, needed in stereoscopy.

The light source must be a flash lamp mounted just above the camera body on a special socket/bracket. Because you will take images of objects which are very close and small, you only need 1 flash lamp. A small reflector close to the subject underneath, will illuminate to strong shadows.

Available models:

The sensors in digital SLR bodies all differ in sizes but the size is very important to get a correct alignment for the 3D effect. The new series of lenses is made for 3 different sizes:

Shape of larger models

Larger models always were a little unpractical to store or to carry in a bag. The metal rods could easily be bend or damage your bag. For this reason all larger models have been fit out with a retractable viewfinder. A rigid aluminium bar forms the base. The U shape on the outer end of the lens can be flipped down under the flash reflection plate to make it almost as flat as the rectangular bar.


Flash bracket

For better alignment of the flash lamp to the subject, this bracket would be a solution. It is mounted on the original shoe on top of the SLR body. Your flash lamp should have the option to receive the release signal through a cable beside receiving it through the normal shoe. With the bracket we supply a small shoe adapter to which a cable can be connected. This bracket is optional and is not included with the lens.  If you find a solution yourself to get the flash lamp aligned, then you don't need this bracket.
