Practical Stereoscopic Photography

Nature volume 140, page 528 (25 September 1937) | Download Citation



DR. MOIR, DALZELL'S book deals with the minutiæ of a single branch of photography. The subject is for the most part clearly treated, but the complete absence of illustrations renders some parts difficult to follow. In the early chapters the author discusses the characteristics of binocular vision, describing the psychological effects of various muscular actions and their relation to our interpretation of what we see. There follows a very complete treatment of apparatus and technique. Much of the part dealing with technique is applicable to general photography, and will be found very valuable to the 'one lens' workers as well as to stereo workers.
