View-Master Cameras


To be able to create your own View Master reels the
View Master camera started to be manufacured.
During a shot, two pictures was exposed on the film.
The Camera was loaded with an ordinary Dia-film that
needs to be developed without cutting. The picture
frames then has tu be cutted out very carefully with
a special cutter. Each kamera model require a special cutter.
The punched out frames then needs to be inserted into
the pockets in the reel (Personal Reels).

Since the Viem-Master frames are smaller than frames in
a ordinary camera, it is possible to shoot twice as many pictures on a film.
