Nishika 8000 4-lenses 3D camera

Long considered the ugly duckling of the consumer lenticular cameras, the 4-lenses / 4-views 3D stereoscopic Nishika 8000 is now in high regard as the most versatile of the breed, because the camera features three aperature settings, unlike other lenticular cameras, which are only point and shoot cameras.

This camera has four 30mm lenses which are used to create a multi-view 3D picture. It has a shutter speed of 1/60th of a second, and three possible aperture values of "Sunny", "Partially Cloudy", and "Indoors Cloudy". This camera was made in the late 80's by Nishika Optical Systems, and takes standard 35mm film.
