to the Accessories page.

production is back.

has started a new small run / Personal Reel business with
real excited about the Fuji Digital Stereo camera that is coming out at
the end of the year.
You could create VM reels from those images
using Do it yourself (Charles
Barnard's method) or Celebrations
I'm really bad (obviously) about updating this page. It's been in the
news recently about the demise of View-Master Scenic Reels. I
thought I would just mention that they continue to make reels, just not
the Scenics (What got them started and what a lot of Adults collect).
It's very sad, but the quality has been so bad recently it's hard to
mourn too much.
I updated the film page now that you can't
hardly find Velvia 50 anymore.
I also updated the Accessories page.
I updated the Personal Reel Mount page with
It's not really site related, but my dog Nicholas passed away on May 1st
2007. He was 16. We miss him very much.
I put up a page about him here.
Not much going on that is new with the site. I added the info from Kevin
Pernicano on Building Your Own VM Copy Unit.
Just a note that more little things have been added here and there. One
interesting addition of note is the link to
which helps you copy your personal reels to anaglyph prints.
3D Stereo.com has announced new
reel mounts are NOW in production.

Happy Cinco De Mayo. I have added little things to the site here and
there but they haven't really been important enough for a log. Some
things of interest might be the 2005 NSA
Convention link. A few updated pictures on the

Added a list of modern custom reels
to be on the look out for.

I added a section of View-Master Custom Reels
I added an intro to Stereo Cameras
Images from the GM Promotion at the Texas State Fair

Many tiny changes throughout the site. Also added information about
new films that are becoming available.

Just got the news that Roger Nazeley passed away. This is a very sad day
for View-Master collectors. Roger was a great resource for me when I
started this hobby and has always been available to answer questions. He
has left a wonderful legacy of information on View-Master and will be
Been busy on the Rock City Gardens shoot and haven't made many updates.

uploaded a few more packets and

Finished my site conversion to support handheld devices. Normal PC
browsers should see no difference, but if you use a Pocket PC you will
see that the site is formatted for the smaller screen. If you prefer
less graphics you can browse to it directly if you would like by going
Added a View-Master Camera FAQ to cover some of
the typical questions I get on the camera and the system. This includes
making prints from reels from Joseph Kearse.
Got some more packet scans from Roger
to clean up and upload (got one up today). Also added K-PAX to the
Back from vacation and trying to upload some more packets. I'm studying
for some work related exams, so I don't have a lot of time to scan my
own collection at the moment.
The Day After - We are still here, we are not demoralized. Just sad and
really really pissed off. I ask the world not to mistake our pride for
arrogance. We are regular people trying to live our lives day by day
just like everybody else. I also plead to Americans that if it does turn
out to be a radical Islamic group that is responsible, do not assume
this anything to do with the real Islamic religion. Islamic and Arab
Americans are just as horrified (if not more so) as everyone else.
The Packet Archives are up and
Added test packets to the Packet Archives
Changed categories to make room for adding Packet

National D-Day Museum View-Master set.
