Camera test - Coronet 3D binocular camera
The Coronet 3D is a stereoscopic camera, made from bakelite and metal. There are no settings to change, so I took my test photographs on a sunny day using 125 ISO black and white film. This camera takes an out of production film format called 127, which is difficult to track down. I ordered a couple of roles from B&H in New York when they had some available, and developed the film myself at home.
The roll of film allowed for four pairs of photographs to be taken, all of which were successful, although I have learned a lot about what kind of scene makes for a good 3D photograph.
About Madeline Bowser
I've been photographing with film for what seems like forever ... well since the late 90's. I shoot both film and digital, but film is where my heart is and I get the most ongoing enjoyment from and what I enjoy sharing and teaching to others. I also travel the world hunting down old cameras and unique locations to photograph in, and exhibit and sell my travel photographs.
When out shooting film, I often get asked the questions 'can you still buy film?', 'I thought film stopped being made 10 years ago' and 'why would you want to shoot film when you can shoot digital'.
My answers are, 'yes', 'no, it didn't', and 'I also shoot digital, both have their place in my mind'.
