Journal

journal207The Stereoscopic Society has regularly had a publication distributed freely to its members for the last 50 years. In that time it has developed from a duplicated news sheet to a 36 page A5 full colour printed magazine. It features examples of members’ work along with reports on meetings and society events. It also reflects members’ interests both theoretical and practical with first hand accounts of their experiences in the many facets of stereoscopy.

If you would like to know more about the Journal, download the 4.7 mb pdf sample, which includes the review of our London “Diableries” meeting with authors Brian May, Paula Fleming and Denis Pellerin.

I am happy to consider articles on 3D topics from people who are not members of the Stereoscopic Society, but who have an interest in 3D photography or 3D video making. I should particularly be interested to hear of new products, books or technology.
