This is a beautiful example of a Anastigmat Stereo Realist 3D rangefinder camera. Its cosmetic condition is good+++. Interior of the camera is in excellent condition. Glass on the viewfinders and lenses is clean, clear, free of scratches and haze or fungus.
Operation on this Stereo Realist is great! Shutter fires appropriately and the shutter cocking mechanism is strong and locks securelythere's no wiggle. All shutter speeds appear to be on timeeven the longer exposures of ½ and 1/5 of a second. Lens covering lifts up and down neatly and with a nice snap. The springs are tight and in great condition.This camera is ready to shoot film the moment you unpack it from its mailing box. It would also make a handsome and unique addition to a vintage camera collection. Original leather case is in good+ condition and gold Stereo Realist imprint there and very readable. Comes with a neck strap. Focus via turning the left or right lens will automatically force the other lens to turn.
Locking mechanism to close the back of the camera is strong and functions well. Hyperfocal table has some of the yellow table missing on the flip up lens cover.
Knob to lock the leather case onto the camera works well. This camera has patina and I've decided to keep it that way. I have not tested this camera as I do not have that ability. Picked it up at an estate sale along with a large number of accessories.
Just search for "Realist" from "dtddude". I have used this with great success.
