The KMart Focal Collapsible Pocket Viewer
Manufactured for Kmart by Prodev Ltd. specifically for viewing
View-Master reels. This small plastic viewer folds flat when not in use.
The reel is inserted by pulling back a lever and slipping the reel in from
the top, the reel is then advanced by hand. The viewer works well when pointed
towards a fairly bright light-source.
A Czechoslovakian FILIP
Collapsible Pocket Viewer
Virtually identical to the Focal viewer above,
except that this one was manufactured in 1971 in Czechoslovakia by Film
Laboratory Gottwaldov (renamed in 1989 to its original name, Zlin).
Although it is
an unconventional design it works very well. The word "NEPRODEJNE"
printed on the front is Czechoslovakian for "NOT FOR SALE",
signifying that this particular viewer was a demonstration model.
