The Brewster stereoscope was without doubt the singular most popular design of stereoscope from 1851 until the 1930’s when new formats took over and during this time its basic design changed very little. Though, there soon was a broad variety of improvements and elaborate decorations.
Check out the fabulously crystal-clear version of Diego’s informative stereo photography presentation of our last meeting! There were bandwidth issues during his presentation but now you can see all his 3D imagery clearly. And if you missed Dominik’s pinhole stereo camera production tutorial or Pascal’s Taxiphote talk, please check out those, too — great stuff!
The technique how to free view varies a bit from person to person, and it is simply difficult to explain in words. Last but not least, free viewing has some advantages, but is not necessary if you have a viewer. But with a little practice you will experience a whole new dimension of photography!
The Verascope and the Taxiphote are two halves of an unbelievable stereo development effort that went on for 40 years essentially without any changes. The Taxiphote was exported to and patented in many countries. All this serves as an example of how attractive stereoscopy was at that time, and also confirms the quality of the Taxiphotes as a technical device. We can only guess at the prestige of having a Taxiphote at that time.
