am Timo Puhakka, an avid stereo photographer,
Toolmaker, and former Imax Camera Technician. (that's a younger me
below with the Imax MKII Underwater housing). This web site is
intended to showcase some of the work I have done with stereo
photography and building stereo equipment, and to allow you to enter the hobby running.
I worked as a Camera Technician at Imax in the late 80s. I was
principlaly responsible for the Imax Space Shuttle In Cabin Camera, and
participated on some 5 or 6 Shuttle missions.
When I worked at Imax, I only once got a chance to see the stereo rig
asssembled. I naturally had to get a shot of it in stereo. It was taken with my
Kodak stereo camera on Kodachrome 64 film.
It certainly gives you an idea of what a behemoth we are talking
about. Anybody who has seen pictures of the new Solido Imax stereo
camera, will understand why they make more stereo films now than they
did in the late 80s when this photo was taken.
