|A Slide Bar enables you to take
a pair of photos for stereo viewing, of still life scenes, with a single
camera. If you are new to 3D-Photography, I recommend the well written and
easy to understand book "Photographing in 3D" by David Burder FRPS &
Pat Whitehouse FRPS. It explains all the basic 3D photo procedures and is
beautifully illustrated with lots of colorful 3D photos. It is listed in
the "Reel 3-D" catalog.
The Slide Bar is attached mounted on a tripod. The Roller Block is attached to your camera, then slipped onto the Bar. A pair of photos is taken, one on the left of center, one on the right. After processing, the slides are viewed using any of the hand-held viewers or projector set-ups that will take regular 2"x2" slides or hand mounted full-frame slides.
Slide Bars for Medium Format, Large SLR's and Heavy Duty Work are Now available in the following lengths: 18" - 28" with Twin Roller Blocks, Bubble Levels and End Safety Stops.
The 8" (20.32 cm) Slide Bar is compact and fits
easily into your camera bag. The roller block and bar are designed with color
coded indent positioning, at center and three positions each side of center:
|Yellow||¼" (6.35 mm) L & R||Macro||1 Foot (30 cm)|
|Green||¾" (19.05 mm) L & R||Close-Up||4 Feet (120 cm)|
|Red||1¼" (31.75 mm) L & R||Scenes-Normal||6 Ft. (180 cm) - Infinity|
The shift distances are based on a "Rule of Thumb"
of 30:1. Total left-right travel on the bar is 4½" (114.3 mm). The block
is removable and has a thumb screw lock for easy action.
$84.00 (plus S&H and applicable sales tax)
This Slide Bar has one Roller Block and a 300 mm Scale (ruler) inset into it for easy and very precise shifting in small or large increments. A Bubble Level is also inset into the Bar. The Roller Block has a Thumb Screw Lock for smooth action. Safety Button Stops are at each end of the Bar.
The 16" (40.64 cm) Slide Bar has been discontinued and was replaced by the 18" Heavy Duty Twin Camera Slide Bar.
If you want to take vertical format instead of the regular landscape format stereo photos, use this handy Single Vertical Mount to attach one or two cameras to the Slide Bars above.
Screw height from base is 5" (127 mm) Mount is 7.38" high x 1.5" wide x 2.38" at the base (187.50 mm x 38 mm x 60.50 mm)
