3-D MACRO LENS FOR ANALOGUE AND DIGITAL
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.
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
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
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.
