Loreo's 3D stereo camera

Loreo Asia Ltd. makes all kinds of cool photography gadgets mostly aimed at 3D photography. The MK-II came out around 1999 and is still available (www.loreo.com). I found mine new in the box on a clearance shelf at a local gift store for $23.00. It is so easy to use. It takes 200, 400 or 800 ISO 35mm film. It only has 1 shutter speed of 1/60 of a second. The aperture is f-18 unless you turn on the flash, then it opens to f-11. It has a non-focusing lens but shoots as close as 2.5 feet, which is good because to get great 3D images, you should get as close to the subject as you can.

The kit also comes with a plastic 3D viewer that holds standard 3.5×5 or 4×6 prints.

If you look at the image of my motorcycle from about 8 inches and cross your eyes until you see a 3rd image appear in the middle, that image should be in 3d! It would look better if the image was bigger. All in all, very cool camera.
