3Diland Stereopocket Viewer, not up to usual Italian styling standards!




3diland Stereopocket Type 101

The Stereopocket Type 101 viewer was manufactured by 3diland in Italy in 1976. The viewer accepts cartridges that consist of 50 stereo pairs. The film used in these cartridges faded to magenta over time, but still remained viewable. The cartridges were supplied in a blister pack that came complete with a booklet explaining the subjects views.

The film is advanced using a lever which is pushed in to move the film to the next frame. Once the film has been viewed the cartridge is removed and a pop-up handle is used to rewind the film to the beginning.

This viewer lacks the style usually associated with Italian products and is not particularly well designed. The film advance can be a bit vague and the viewer is not especially comfortable to use. Despite that, these viewers always achieve comparatively high prices when they come up for sale and are quite sought after.

Images measure 17x11mm

3diland Stereopocket Type 102

This is the lighted version of the viewer show above, known as the Type 102. The light source is excellent, but the viewer is still let down by an erratic and unreliable film advance mechanism. On film 5007-05 (African Animals) all the animals are stuffed! as they also are on several films about birds.

The viewer with the battery compartment cover removed.
