Model: LA9006
Lens Type: 3D, parallel view, all manual, no electronics
Lens system: 38 mm, f11, 2 elements, plastic polymer
Sensor Format: ~ (22 - 24) x (14.5 - 16) mm subframe digital
SLR sensor - equivalent to 1.5-1.6x crop
Diaphragm: Twin Blade, f11, f16, f22 with click stops
Focus adjustment: Focusing ring.
4. When mounting the lens on the
camera make sure it is aligned
on the horizontal. This may
affect vertical alignment of the
image pair.
Focusing range: 9 - 33 inches (23 - 85 cm) measured from
the front of the lens.
Lens Extension: 52 mm filter mount for lightweight
accessories such as filters and number 1 - 4 closeup lenses.
Special Feature: Gives a digital SLR camera macro 3D
capabilities using normal processing. Retains many of the
features of an SLR camera, such as through the lens viewing,
auto exposure, TTL flash.
Digital SLR body mounts: Pentax K, Canon EOS, Nikon N,
Minolta AF, Sony Alpha, Samsung GX (Pentax K).
has no adverse effect on the
final picture.
5. Usage: First select aperture by
turning the aperture ring. There
are three click stop apertures.
Set focus from 23 cm (9 in.) to
85 cm (33 in.). All distances are
measured from the front panel
of the lens, not the film plane.
6. The lens works with TTL flash,
Aperture Priority (AV) or
Program (P) mode exposure on
many cameras. For manual
control use a light meter or
exposure chart.
The 3D Macro Lens in a cap
has no auto diaphragm, so the
viewfinder image darkens when
f/22 is chosen. This allows the
user to judge depth of field, and
When composing pictures,
photographers usually adjust
focus based on what they see
in the viewfinder. With a macro
lens this may be difficult. An
alternative way would be to first
decide on the distance to the
subject, set the focus accordingly, and then position the
camera in the correct place.
Depth of field helps stereo
photography, so a fast film
compensates for a small
aperture. ISO settings from
200-400 give excellent results.
10. For each aperture, the Depth
of Field scale gives a distance
range in which all objects will
be sharp. For example, when
the lens is set to f/11, and the
subject is in focus at 30 cm, the
2. This lens is for use with
subframe Single Lens Reflex
(SLR) cameras with the
image sensor format stated
on the box. Mostly, these will
be digital SLR cameras. If
used with a full-frame
camera, the surplus image
area will have to be cropped
off. Some new digital SLR
cameras will do this automatically.
3. This is a manual lens. There
are no electronics. Turn off
auto-focusing before using
the lens. Auto-exposure
should work. If not, turn that
off as well.
depth of field will be 27-33
cm. At f/22, 23-38 cm.
11. The 52 mm thread on the lens
can be used for mounting
filters or closeup lenses (nos.
1, 2 and 3). Attachments
should be selected and used
with care so as not to
damage the filter thread.
12. To protect the 3D Macro Lens
in a Cap, the focusing ring
should be set to the “PARK”
position before storing or
transporting the lens.
13. 3D photographs taken by this
lens are best viewed with
Loreo 3D Viewers. Some
people are able to free view
stereo images. The image
pairs do not correspond
exactly, so viewing methods
which require exact symmetry may not be suitable.
Never hold your camera vertical, since you would not be
able to view the pictures in 3D.
14. 3D photo tips: As in conventional photography, the subject
of your picture will usually be
placed in the center. Exposure
is best if the light source is
behind the photographer. In 3D
Macro photography, lighting
and exposure are especially
18. Printing: The Loreo 3D Lens
System takes two pictures in
each frame, viewable immediately after processing. 4R (4 x
6 inches) prints work best.
Normal prints should be made,
NOT half frame photographs.
15. Stereo photography is different
from ordinary photography. A
3D camera or lens records both
the shape of things and the
depth of the scene.
19. Viewing: Put the pictures in the
Loreo Deluxe 3D Viewer
(bottom left) and hold the
eyepiece about 6 inches from
your eyes. It may take a few
seconds for your eyes to adjust
to the stereo image.
16. 3D pictures should show
foreground objects as well as
the background scene. When
photographing a person,
include objects in front, and an
interesting view behind.
20. Different people have different
eyesight, so you may have to
move the viewer closer or
further away from your eyes for
the stereo effect to appear.
17. Important notice: You can point
the camera up or down, but
always keep it horizontal.
21. For best clarity when viewing
3D pictures avoid bright lights
reflecting on the viewing lens
surface. Natural light falling on
the stereo print, not on the
stereo lens, will always give the
best stereo effect.

22. Sharing: One of the great joys
of 3D photography is in sharing
images with friends and family.
Foldable, mailable viewers
such as the Lite 3D Viewer
(print viewing) and Pixi 3D
Viewer (screen viewing) are
ideal for this purpose. Remember that not everyone may be
able to immediately see 3D
effect like you can. Take the
time to explain how it works.
1. Slight rain or salt water
splashes on the lens body
should be harmless. Wipe
with a clean cloth. A soiled
lens may be gently cleaned
with lens tissue moistened
with lens cleaning fluid.
Never put liquid lens cleaner
directly onto any lens. Do not
wipe with a dry tissue as it
may scratch the lens surface.
2. Nikon digital SLR cameras
may need to be switched to
manual mode before they will
function with a non-Nikon
lens. Sony SLR cameras
need to have the shutter lock
disabled. Some Sony SLR
cameras have to function in
manual mode.
