So I found this 50s-era stereo lens for 16mm movie cameras and adapted it to my camera. Creates interesting stereo image pairs that can be viewed with one of those smartphone-based VR headsets like Google's Cardboard, or, for those with the skillset -- crossing your eyes to pull depth out of stereo imagery. Not especially sharp images, though. It's hard to believe people were making home 3D movies in the 1950s, but this is one of the options they had at their employ: fixed focus from 5ft to infinity, ƒ2.8-22. These, I think, except maybe for the jail photos, were all taken wide-open. Shot at Papermoon and the old Baltimore City Jail on a GX7 with a C-Mount >m43 adaptor and some tape for a compression fit leveling alignment. All auto leveled in LR, emphasizes the leaks/internal reflections when adapted and unmasked.

There was a weird Soviet stereoscopic camera I remember mulling about getting some time ago, and while researching I saw someone that decided to take the images it produced and create a gif out of them. They cropped the photos into their two distinct photos, and made a gif loop that bounced between them every second or so. It gave a really interesting effect of bringing the photos to life, without the need of eye crossing. I‘d bet you could do the same here if you wanted.
