Just arrived this morning with instructions in Japanese!
I haven't tried stereo photography before so am looking forward to giving it a go. Just have to find an intrepreter.

Nice set, and great to have the box and instructions too. It's one of the items on my getting-increasingly-shorter 'would like to have' list Wink

BTW, if you ever feel the need to own a Copipod, let me know - it'd cost very little to post up to you!

The Adapter, when put on the end of the lens, splits the image into two parts. The image, when processed, is then looked at through the Viewer, giving a cool (at the time at least!!!), stereo optical effect Wink

Check it out by clicking here.

If you want a scan of the instructions in English let me know.

I have managed some nice looking slides with this kit but only works well for things fairly close up, i.e., few meters away. Subjects with some depth work well, and use about f/5.6.

I took some photos of the Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park, NY, using Kodachrome 64 and this adaptor which worked well. Posting a scan is pretty pointless though!
