It's easy to take pictures with the REALIST"45". The instructions on the next 7 pages tell how. You can start taking pictures right away.

Any standard 35 mm color or black and white film may be used; however, to utilize the wonderful realism of 3 dimensional pictures, color films are almost universally used.

A standard 35 mm 20 exposure roll will make 15 to 16 stereo pairs.
A standard 35 mm 36 exposure roll will make 28 to 29 stereo pairs.
Regular stereo color film is available and the number of stereo pairs to be expected is marked on the package.
