Recently I found a Zeiss Ikon postcard on eBay. It was a bit too expensive but when I read the text on the back, I really wanted it. The text reveals a little bit of Dutch photo history.
Today, Zeiss lenses are known for their high optical quality. The company has a long history and at the beginning of the 20th century it also produced stereoscopes. I recently added a rare Carl Zeiss Jena stereoscope to my collection
Two Zeiss Ikon hand-held stereoscopes for the 45x107 and 6x13 formats. The magnifying lenses of these stereo viewers offer a wonderful viewing experience. These are the workhorses I use to view my stereoview collection.
A new passion was born after I looked for the first time through the lenses of my Zeiss Ikon 628/8 stereoscope. I viewed an image of the battle of Verdun and the visual experience and 3D effect made a big impression on me.
