S.A.M. makes mounting easier, whatever format or mount type you use. See details below.

RBT Stereo Mounts
RBT Reuseable Mounts (US-Pat. No.: 4,942,684)

NEW MD mounts RBT MD mount NEW! We have had many requests from Realist format users, to create an RBT mount to emulate the aperture size of certain vintage aluminum masks, to provide more flexibility for window adjustment. The new RBT MD mount is a full 23mm in height, with a 19.5mm width, slightly less than a standard Realist aperture. Use the new MD MASKING MOUNTS to mask image width.
RBT mount interiors

All RBT mounts are calibrated for precision stereo alignment, a sliding pin bar system inside the mount locks the film chips in by their sprocket holes. The pin bars are fully adjustable for horizontal placement and are vertically adjustable in .1 mm increments with standard white pin bars, .05mm increments with grey pin bars. When mounting images taken with a stereo camera, vertical and rotational problems are eliminated. The result is precise alignment, which is critical for projection. Reusable snap-together design, plastic RBT mounts can be used over and over. They are simple to use, and do not require glue, heat or binding tape.

RBT MOUNTS use PIN BARS that snap into horizontal channels inside the mount. STANDARD WHITE PIN BARS .05 PIN BARS (supplied with RBT mounts) have an offset of .05mm allowing 5 vertical offset increments (.0, .10, .20, .30, .40) and 16 pinbar placement variations (some of these placements simply raise or lower the aligned chip pairs, allowing you to slightly mask either the top or bottom of the image).

GREY PIN BARS provide finer and additional vertical adjustments.
.10 GREY PIN BARS, when used in combination with the standard pin bars, provide 11 vertical offset increments (.0, .05, .10, .15, .20, .25, .30, .35, .40, .45, .50) and 64 pin bar placement variations. #GPB10

.20 GREY PIN BARS, when used in combination with the standard and .10 pin bars, provide 14 vertical offset increments (.0, .05, .10, .15, .20, .25, .30, .35, .40, .45, .50, .55, .60, .70) and 144 pin bar placement variations. #GPB20

GREY PIN BARS come in packs of 50. 1 pack $8.00, 2-4 packs $7.00 each, 5+ packs $6.50 each. S+H $2.50 per order, waived if ordered with mounts.

masking mounts

Have greater artistic and technical control over your images with the new RBT masking mounts.

Available in quantities of 10, 25, boxes of 50 and mixed boxes of 50.

Masking mounts can improve existing images. Often masking the foreground allows the object of interest to be moved closer to or even (gasp!) THROUGH the window! The panoramic aspect ratio is so handsome, try composing some shots with the intention of using this new format.
Standard RBT mounts and RBT anti-newton glass mounts are available in the following sizes: RBT Masking mounts are available in the following sizes*:
Realist Ultra close-up or

(all RBT cameras, any full-frame camera)
*Look for the mount size for your camera on this chart. Any mount above it and to the side on this table can be used for image masking

Glass orientation One-sided glass mounts are intended for use with projection. The anti-newton glass keeps the film plane flat so the image stays in focus even when it is being projected through a hot vintage projector. Note that glass is available in the standard RBT sizes only, not for the masking mounts.
