     The main secret to 3D stereo is anyone can do it. You can use any camera and any film. Create 3D by taking your camera and shooting from the "left eye" and then shooting from the "right eye". 

You can develop your film and then view it dozens of ways. If you shoot transparencies, then you can modify a viewmaster 3D viewer to have "a great stereo image".  If you are on a tight budget, purchase a second hand viewmaster viewer for $2 or lightweight hand viewers for $8. Or you can spend up to $800 for a top quality hand viewer or $3500 for a nice stereo projector system. You will need silver screen and polarized glasses for projection. 

If you shoot print film, you can get an old stereopticon for $100 or scan into computer. Reverse the images to "crossview". This allows you to see 3D without a special viewer or glasses. You can also convert to anaglyphic with easy to use software and view with "green/red glasses". 

Digital images can use stereophotomaker or stereomoviewmaker which are both free and fabulous software programs. WOW! Just google!

Practice with the images above by slightly crossing your eyes and looking for an image in the middle. Click to enlarge crossview stereo 'The Spirits Spoke to Her'.
