Nimslo quick facts:
- uses regular 35mm film
- not too hard to find used (around $30 on ebay)
- takes three 386 type button batteries
- you can view and/or download the manual here
- shots can be used to make lenticular prints, GIFs, or half frame still photos
- there was a Nimslo flash made for this, but any flash should work (I’ve used Canon speedlites)
The Nimslo is a 3D, four-lens film camera, that was made for a brief time in the 1980s. It shoots four different images simultaneously (unlike multi-lens cameras that shoot a sequence of images a fraction of a second apart), each one from a very slightly different viewpoint, which allows for 3D viewing via lenticular prints (think blinky-eye, ridged postcards, or the original cover of the Stones’ Their Satanic Majesties Request). The camera takes regular 35mm film.
