Rbt Stereo Realist 3-d Plastic Mounts & Other Sizes - For 3d Slide Mounting For Sale
For Accurate & Fast Stereo Slide Mounting
RBT Stereo Slide Mounts
Box of 50 mounts, REALIST FORMAT as seen here: (I can substitute Realist format for any other size, if you let me know with your order)
Preferred by the Experts - Here is why:
They are a snap to use:
Separate the two halves.
Put a pair of pin bars (while little things) in place (usually for me this is the upper channel, same orientation).
Put the film chips in place.
Adjust the stereo window by sliding the chips horizontally while freeviewing the stereo pair. For a beginner, just center the film chips in the mount aperture openings.
Snap the two halves together - Done!
Finishing touches include writing with marker the title and other info in the front and putting a sticker with my name and address in the back.
Adjustment of the stereo window is very easy since the film chips slide parallel, being supported by the pin bars.
Vertical adjustment is precise, done in steps of 0.1mm (changing the orientation of the pin bars changes the vertical difference - details are in the enclosed instructions).
No rotational errors! The system of pin bars assures that there is no possibility of rotational error when you do the vertical and horizontal adjustments. For me, this is the biggest advantage of these mounts, and that's the reason I recommend them to beginners.
Their extra thickness and stiffness is a plus in stereo projection.
Being made of plastic means that they do not have cardboard dust like some cardboard mounts, they do not have oils and will not scratch the film (like some metal mounts), and are reasonably maintenance-free (just store in a dark, dust-free place).
They come in a large variety of aperture openings (plus a unique system for vertical cropping to either 20 or 15mm). A cropping system is also available,
They are easy to label by writing on the light side with a marker. You can also easily reuse them: Open the mount, remove the film chips, done! I use rubbing alcohol to remove previous labels.
Note: The following sizes are available. If you do not specify a size, I will mail standard Realist 5p mounts
4p (Nimslo format, 16x21mm)
5p (Realist format, 21x23mm)
Realist close up (19.5 x 23mm) - not shown here ->
7p (European format, 28x23mm)
7+ (30x23mm) - not shown here ->
Also, this picture here shows all the available combinations of the pin bars in the top or bottom channels of the mount.
I am a big proponent of these slide mounts and I recommend them for beginners or anyone who wants to project their stereo slides. The biggest advantage is that they eliminate rotational mounting errors (one film chip is rotated with respect to the other, a major problem in stereo projection).
Now, I use RBT mounts for my best slides and the ones I project. That's because I shoot a few thousand stereo slides a year. If I used RBT mounts for all of them, I would be in the poorhouse by now! But I know of many beginners or less prolific stereo shooters who use RBT mounts for all their slides, taking advantage of the convenience and precision of these mounts. The RBT mounts have become very popular with time. Quite a few of our stereo club members now use these.
If you are a beginner, I recommend trying these mounts. Also, do not forget the archival stereo slide storage pages and the slide storage boxes!
