There are a lot of variations of the double slit-plate photography. Photographs displayed here are those taken by a basic double slit-plate camera. Two slit-plates with vertical and horizontal slits are placed at 85 mm and 55 mm from the sensor, respectively. The width of the slit is about 0.3 mm. The left of the two photographs is taken by a camera with a front plate of a vertical slit and a rear plate of a horizontal slit. As the vertical slit expresses the horizontal position of the object and vice versa, in the left photograph vertical to horizontal ratio of the object becomes 0.80 (horizontal to vertical ratio is 1.24). A digital SLR, an Olympus E-300 was used to take these photographs.

●[7-8] This wooden zebu is a Brazilian souvenir. Polished surface brightens and it is virile-looking.
