Chronology of cameras David White 

The Stereo Realist is a highly original stereo unit.

When lifting the cover which also serves as sun shade, we discover that it masks three lenses and not two ! The middle one is used for framing.
The collar , around the latter , selects the shutter speed (T , B , and 1s to 1/150 ). Around taking lenses, two coupled are used to select the diaphragms aperture ( 3.5 to 22 for this model) .

The focus adjustment , a rangefinder (both rangefinder windows are at bottom of the unit ) is done by turning the knob on the vertical side ( under the forefinger of the right hand). The objectives are not affected by the focusing . The plate support them remains stationary , no element moves inside the optical units . This is the film itself , inside the housing, which moves forward or backward to find the correct distance from the lenses.

A cocking lever is located under the lenses and trigger comes under the index finger of the left hand .

A depth of field table is printed under the cover / sunshade .
More wanted is the Model 1042 which is fitted with f2.8 lenses.
