Week 7 - Iloca II stereo camera

Iloca II stereo camera
Originally uploaded by pho-Tony

I got this camera last year, and have only put one film through it. It is well made and has a full range of shutter speeds, it looks distinctly odd in use, as the viewfinder eye-piece is at the bottom of the camera, so you hold it in front of your forehead to take photos.
Apart from making stereo pairs, what I like about this camera is the way the pairs are distributed on the film, with two other exposures coming between each pair of frames. This makes it possible to create interesting juxtapositions when scanning the filmstrip uncut.
