I would like to know what this piece of equipment is used for. It has a standard screw to attach a camera onto the metal plate with a line marking "Offset-62.5". The metal plate is mounted onto a rotatable head moved by an arm which turns to fix the desired position. The whole is fixed to a clamp which is shaped to clamp to a bar or rod.
Many thanks

G'day mate

Firstly - I think the offset is millimetres not inches, and if this is the case, I suspect it was a stereo image creator when taking two images at a fixed separation prior to mounting them into a stereo viewer device

Hope this helps
Phil

Thanks, that makes sense. The distance between (human) eyes is around 62 mm. I'm thinking this bracket must have been made for a specific stereoscopic camera as there is only one mounting screw but sadly there is no maker's name or mark.
