Panoramic Stereo Viewer

The Super-View was manufactured by "The Hong Kong Viewers" company, Hong Kong, China. The viewer was almost identical to the Gakken Pan-Pet viewer from Japan, suggesting that The Hong Kong Viewers company may have be the original manufacturer for  Gakken, who then re-badged them, but that is only a theory.

The texture moulded into the plastic and the name plate are the only  two discernable differences between the viewers, even the injection moulding marks on the interior are the same. The film used for the Super-View was Fujifilm and has retained it's colour, unlike the Japanese Gakken films, which turn magenta with age.

The user rotated a knob to advance the film from image to image. A title naming the scene being viewed was displayed between the pictures. The pictures were reflected into the lenses by two offset mirrors , set at 45 degrees. The light for the viewer came through the translucent white cover. When the film has been viewed the user had to manually re-wind it back to the start.


The film gave bright, clear images, together with an excellent stereo depth of field.
