Nishika N8000

October 3rd 2019

One of my buddies gave me two Nishika N8000 cameras. These are odd cameras with four plastic lenses that shoot four small portrait images spread across two 35mm frames.

Sample of four photos scanned

Each of the four images is taken from a slightly different position creating a little bit of parallax between the images.

When the images are split apart and aligned you can create GIFs with some fun movement.

The camera has three aperture settings f/8, f/11, and f/19 and one shutter speed — 1/60th. I don’t really trust either of those numbers. At some point I’ll measure the shutter speed to make sure it’s not way off. I might also try and rig up something to see about the aperture, but that’s a lot harder.
