Hans Knuchel developed a simple adaptor for digital mirror reflex cameras, with which small moving objects can be photographed stereoscopically. The 3-D macro photographs shown here were taken with the prototype of the adaptor for the exhibition «Augen-Blicke» at the Zoological Museum of the University of Zurich.


The following pairs of pictures can be looked at stereoscopically using the cross-eyed method. For instructions see Spot 11.
