highlight of the day was having the opportunity to meet Photo-3D 'math maven'
Mike Davis and to view his medium format 3D slides. The images he showed in his SaturnSlide viewer were
that they grabbed firm hold of my eyeballs and refused to let them go!
I could scarcely stand to hand the viewer to the next person waiting in
line! In about 5 years of being involved with stereo photography I
have seen many thousands of stereo slides: from having visited several
clubs, viewing 'Hall of Fame' and other PSA loaner sets, SSA folio images,
NSA stereo theater shows, medium format folios and expos, and private
exchanges. Viewing Mike's photos on Saturday, I thought I had
slipped briefly into a 'parallel universe' where the quality of 3D imaging
exceeds anything I had ever
During the three hour drive home this morning my head was still spinning
in wonder at the quality of those chromes. Mike is very humble about
the 'artistic' skill that he adds to his highly refined technical ability,
but I can say his photos show
he has a
very fine photographic eye to complement his
near total mastery of the science of photography.

I can attest that this is completely
true! I had to scrape his [Paul Talbot's] eyeballs off the lenses
myself. Mike's images
were stunning to say the least.
Both my wife and I were taken in by them. It sure gives me something
to shoot for with my own images.

I suspect that anyone that had the
great fortune to see Mike's slides will never again question his system
for taking pictures. It will take a while for all his ideas to sink into
my Pennsylvania Dutch brain, but
his pictures will stay with me
for a long time!

Mike has given us the numbers and numbers don't lie. He has also given us
the product and the product
is beyond questioning.
As someone who has seen the products of Mike's formulas let me say that
you can't argue with perfection.
I do not use that word
lightly either. His [stereo] images are
the most easily viewed and visually
I have ever seen. They just plain don't get any better.
