Looking at the Stereo Realist in another manner....

Yes the Famous David White Co. Stereo Realist, designed for precise deep field images, two at a time. It started a Craze, Fad, Obsession a decade long for Photographers and created a whole new supply and finishing business. 125,000, some say 250,000 were made from 1947 to 1972. Today, the ‘bay is awash with them! Here supply vs. demand has caused a precision camera to today launguish....or sell for $40 or so. Remember when New this was top flite costing $1000 in “our dollar” figuring.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~But Stereo? Yes ultra beautiful and that’s how the Realist is always thought as.~~~~~~~ Now The Realist can Easily take double exposures.... you get 29 PAIRS of images on a 36 Roll, that’s 58 frames! So.....you make a small lenscap, or just cover one lens....Shoot, then without advancing switch the lenscap and recock the shutter and shoot again, Push advance release and wind film and repea. Each wind moves the film five perfs. Just keep the rhythm right you get 58 23mmx24mm individual images!! The images aren’t crap either remember these slides were meant for projection, the Realist has a great reputation...best $50 camera you can buy!
