Stitz, stereo viewer from Japan




Stitz SV-1

The Stitz SV-1 viewer was manufactured in 1973 by the Itzuki Instrument Company as part of the 'Stitz Stereo-System' and was used to view 35mm half-frame transparencies. These were taken using a beam splitter (such as the Stitz, Zeiss Icon and Russian SKF-1 style splitters). The unit has a battery powered rear light for illumination. The lenses could be focused and it also offered inter-ocular adjustment (the distance between the eye-pieces). Underneath there was a screw mounting point that could be used to place the viewer on a stand.

The Stitz SV-1 opened up to reveal the illumination unit.

Many thanks to Uwe Hoffmann for supplying the Stitz SV-1 pictures and information

Stitz SV-2

This plastic stereo viewer was made in Tokyo, Japan in the mid 1970's. It is known as the Model SV-2 and features inter-ocular adjustment, which means you can adjust the distance between the viewing lenses. Stitz also manufactured high quality beamsplitters (Stitz SA-1), to allow the creation of stereo photographs using a single lens camera.

It can take any sort of stereo pair up to a size of 11cm x 7.6cm. It's open design means there is always plenty of light available and as such it allows the viewer to obtain a bright, clear view. Whilst it is very simple in design, it is very a very efficient viewer.
