NIMSLO 3D Stereo Camera (UK) - Like New In Box
vintage - Like New - In Original Packaging and Box
This Japanese made Nimslo Stereo Camera comes complete with 'center lenses septum'. When the septum is in place no exposure is made on the two inner lenses, leaving only the first and fourth images on the film, for ease in developing, printing, and mounting. Today the Nimslo becomes the excellent automatic point and shoot for 4 Perf. stereo pairs on film, plus,
Additionally today, the Nimslo has become Ideal for Animated gif-
Today, the NIMSLO 3D camera has been rediscovered as an ideal camera for the production of an animated gif for posting on the internet. The animated gif produces simulated 3D as it flashes back and forth between the two images created with the first and fourth lens of the NIMSLO 3D camera.
NOTE: Similar to the Nishika 8000 3D camera (the Nimslo is much less bulky and as heavy as the Nishika - Nimslo has built in automatic aperture and dot light indicator when flash exposure is necessary)
NOTE: Similar to the Kalimar 3D camera (the Nimslo has larger separation between outer lenses for greater 3D effect)
Originally intended as a four lens camera for the production of 3D stereo lenticular prints, it records four half-frame (24 x 18mm ) images on regular 35mm print film from which is made, the lenticular print (3D photographs that require no special glasses or special viewers).
For a few years, lenticular print processors where scarcer than hen's teeth. The lenticular cameras stopped selling. But photographers found the Nimslo 3D camera useful for making two image stereo slides using the images produced by the two outer lenses, and now an extra use - for making an animated gif, simulating 3D for all internet postings.
Nimslo 3D cameras were produced initially in Japan and later in the U.K. This offering is a Japanese produced camera (regarded higher than the later U.K. produced). Camera, packaging, instruction manual are all like new. The camera functions on three common button batteries. When tested, the camera is fully functioning. Batteries NOT included
