does anybody have one, use one, know how they work? I think they are red-green. Been wondering if they might be converted to polarized.

Never got my hands on one, but I have a manual here somewhere. Temporarily misplaced it.

From memory they were polarised, used 2 Kern Yvar lenses, with a projector attachment and a parallax adjusting mechanism. It was recommended to use a special high luminance screen for projection, which Bolex also sold.

I don't think it took off, so not many were made. Consequently rather rare.

I wonder how sharp the images are. Im thinking Id like to experiment with the stereo and the anomorphot if I can find them affordably.

does anybody know if both types of bolex stereo lenses can work on a reflex bolex? I read the rectangular unit only works on non reflex cameras. is there a quality difference between the image output between them?

The circular unit is actually a close up attachment which fits onto the basic unit.

The rears of the 12.5mm Yvars is far to close to the film plane tobe able to clear the prism.
