View-Master stereo images

ย Peanuts – Good Grief, Beethoven! 1966


I tried to get some more shots of View-Master images taken by camera direct through a viewer – with varying degrees of success. I managed to get two Peanuts stories without too much blurring, and a whole bunch of random images from Sesame Street, The Flintstones, and The Steadfast Tin Soldier.

As my reel collection grows, it’s my aim to try and capture the best images possible – a lot of trial and error. Well, the following aren’t too shabby, as you can see, but nothing can beat seeing these wonderful 3D images with your own eyes through a View-Master! The modelmaking and photography techniques of certain reels is an absolute joy to behold.

Used to have a View-Master as a kid? Haven’t got one as an adult? What are you waiting for? They’re fairly inexpensive to buy on the second-hand market, and your eyes will thank you greatly ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

    WOW, 3D Peanuts? It gives Charlie Brown and Snoopy a whole new dimension! (Sorry ๐Ÿ˜€ ) These are great images and could the Flintstones reels be classed as the first 3D imaging of Fred and Wilma on film (predating the two movies)?
    And have you looked into using one of those “Photo Negative to Digital” converters? They work on Cine8 film and film cells so might work on View-Master reels. Great stuff, thanks!
