Nimslo 3D

I was gifted a Nimslo 3D 35mm point & shoot camera. The Nimslo is a unique 4-lens camera that shoots 4 x half-frame sized photos of every image with a slightly different angle of view. There was a special developing process called Lenticular Printing that would create a 3 dimensional like photo from the 4 images. The 4 images are shot across 2 frames. Therefore, a 36 exposure roll yields 18-4 frame images.

After basic research, I’ve not found anyone doing this type of developing / printing so I’m using it simply for fun to create a 4-panel photo. Kind of cool. There is a process currently used to create “wiggle-gifs” which will be fun to try.

The camera is automatic with fixed focus 30mm lens, auto exposure with no additional features. The only variable is a 100 or 400 ASA switch. There is a hotshot which I’ve used to fire a speedlight. Worked great.

The camera is well build with metal / plastic / leatherette. The lenses are glass. It is sturdy.

I gave it a go with a couple of rolls of fresh and expired film. The camera is very stealthy so it can easily be used for street work. I’m a fan.
