Camera, Stereo 35mm, Lunar Surface, Apollo

This Eastman Kodak 35mm camera is the same type as those used to take pairs of close-up photographs of the lunar surface. When the camera’s base was placed on the Moon's surface and the trigger under the handle pulled, the camera would photograph the area beneath its lenses. The resulting photographs would give a three dimensional or stereoscopic effect when placed in a special viewer.

This item was transferred NASA to the Smithsonian in 1971.
