  1. John Peck (the Stereoscopic Society)

    The Elmusia stereo viewer is a substantial and versatile piece of kit, constructed from laser cut MDF, and painted mat black where required.
    It arrived securely packed, and was available for use right from the start. It also comes with an impressive manual that details all of the parts of the viewer, and how to assemble it according to the stereo format to be viewed. The lenses are protected by dust covers when not in use.
    Viewing Victorian stereo cards, or their modern equivalent is the easiest.
    Simply remove the dust covers from the lenses, and use the plate holding them to view the card, adjusting the alignment and viewing distance accordingly.
    Viewing slides is almost as simple as the slide holder can accommodate both 6 x 13 mounted medium format slides, and via an adaptor plate, the 41 x 101 universal slide mounts that can accommodate 35mm film in a variety of stereoscopic formats. Place the stereoscope corpus with the viewing lenses over the slide, and lock everything together with the included rubber bands. You then have the choice of holding the viewer to the light, or mounting it on the included stand that holds a mirror that reflects light up into the viewer. It is easy to sit at a table to view, or pass from friend to friend so that all can enjoy the slide.
    It is possible to replace the slide holder by an alternative base that can hold a smart phone, so that digital side-by-side stereo images can also be viewed.
    Changing the viewer to accommodate the format of the stereo pair that is to be viewed is simplicity itself.
    The manual details all the viewing possibilities, and also lists the various slide mounts that are available for both medium format and 35mm film. Instructions on alignment when mounting are also included, together with notes on correctly mounting within the stereo window.
    Reference is made to StereoPhoto Maker, the open source computer programme that can align digital stereo pairs that may have come from either a digital camera or from a scanned slide or negative.
    Wiggle Gifs and Wigle for Instagram and Wiggle Gifs from Photoshop are also detailed.
    This viewer should be in everyone’s stereoscopic kit.

    … I will offer a few of my thoughts on Dominik’s Emulsia Viewer:

    Pros:
    -The viewer is well designed. I like the stand with the mirror to collect light and it is a nice concept to use a single viewer to view multiple formats (prints, slides, cell phone images) with the different configurations.
    -The slides are held securely and flat. I am extremely pleased that Dominik decided to go with the “standard” cardstock slide dimensions of 80 mm x 132 mm.
    -It is somewhat cumbersome to change slides, although the totally-enclosed design is a significant benefit for passing the viewer around.
    -The manual is extremely well-written, with beautiful layout and design work.
    -The diffuser is the best that I have ever seen on any 3D viewer, ever (I have used a King Inn, 3D World STL, 3D World Focusing and a Kodaslide II (not MF3D)). I don’t know why this is so difficult to get right, but the solid sheet of translucent acrylic provides very even illumination without attenuating the light too much.
    -The optical quality of the lenses seems quite good, especially so for single element plastic lenses.
    -The viewer was enjoyable to assemble and the instructions were very clear.

    Cons:
    -Really there is only one major con: the focal length of the lenses is ~130 mm. In my opinion, this is much too long. This is where I hesitate to offer my opinion since I have not seen results taken with the Minuta camera through the Emulsia (apart from prints included in the manual). I imagine that when considered as an entire system, the viewer makes a lot more sense — it seems like a sensible amount of magnification for pinhole images. It is likewise a good focal length for prints and as a cell phone viewer where the resolution can’t support more magnification. But as a standard MF3D viewer for slides taken with a lensed camera, I find it to be distinctly lacking immersion due to the narrow field of view. It’s a bit like looking at a “thumbnail” of your slides.
    -For the above reason, I personally can’t think of a reason why I would want to look at a Realist format slide in the viewer.

    If you’re looking for a brilliantly designed viewer to view prints, cell-phone images or Minuta slides, Dominik’s viewer will serve you very well. I don’t think it compares with a 3D World STL viewer or Heydascope for immersive viewing, but it is a good product and I am happy that I purchased the DIY set. I applaud Dominik for his creation and congratulate him on bringing some excellent products to the limited market that is MF3D! He is clearly a very skilled product designer and artist and I very much look forward to what he makes in the future.

    Such a great design!
    They look somewhat intimidating at first, but once you know how they work, its really easy.
    The lenses are great.
    All in all a very nice and affordable, versatile viewer.
    Something that was not in the market already, so a great addition.
