Welcome to the Stereoscopic Society of New Zealand
Who are we?
We’re a small group of enthusiasts with a shared interest in stereo photography. Our particular interests vary quite widely, some of us just like to snap photos or shoot video, and some of us are more technically minded and enjoy fiddling with 3D cameras. Membership is spread around New Zealand but most of us are in the upper North Island.
We meet up at least 2 times a year (we have the odd Auckland based 'projection evening' in between) at a member’s home to view each others images, and those from overseas clubs. We chat about 3D developments, problems we may be having and socialise around a dinner.
Viewing in the old days meant projecting stereoscopic slides, but these days we have a paired digital projector system so we can view our digital images on the big screen.
There are also several 'folios' in circulation where members add a few images and comment on other members images. There are digital and film folios circulating around New Zealand and overseas.
With this website comes another way for us to interact, a gallery where members can post their images, and have them viewed and commented on by other members, and visitors from around the world.
The SSNZ is a member of the International Stereoscopic Union – ISU (one of our members was the ISU Treasurer for a number of years). We contribute to an ISU folio which is projected at our meetings. The ISU also publishes a full colour magazine.
