A stereocamera adapted to a binocular microscope is used to produce stereomicrograph colour transparencies. Such slides can be examined with a viewer or a stereoscope. They can also be projected on to a screen with a special projector and viewed through eyeglasses. Flash bulbs are used to eliminate vibration problems during exposure.
