The Wollensak Stereo 10 is a 35mm stereo camera from the Wollensak Optical Company of Chicago, Illinois. It was introduced in about 1950. It has 35 mm f/2.7 lenses, and shutter speeds ½ - 1/300 second, plus 'B' and 'T', set by a ring on the right lens: the aperture is set by a matching ring on the left. The shutter is synchronised for bulb flash, with a hot shoe to accept the flash holder.

The camera has a coupled rangefinder, with an eyepiece separate from the viewfinder. It focuses down to 3 feet, using a knob on the top housing, positioned for the right thumb. The viewfinder eyepiece has a simple parallax adjustment, with just two positions, for 3-10 feet and 10 ft - infinity. There is also a bubble level, visible in the viewfinder.

Film advance is by a knob on the right, with a frame-counter around the knob.

The lenses accept Series V filters. Each lens has a threaded retaining ring at the front; these are removed to drop the filters into place, and the rings are replaced to retain the filters.
