Product Description
Nishika N9000 35mm Quadrascopic 3D Lenticular Camera Model: N9000 SKU: 233877386M Manufacturer: NISHIKA Condition: New Create 3D pictures that will amaze your friends! The Nishika N9000 35 mm quadrascopic 3D lenticular camera is designed for capturing photos used for creating 3D lenticular prints. Unlike normal photo prints, 3D lenticular prints give a sense of real depth. Your subjects will appear as though they are actually there inside and behind the print. Background objects appear to actually be behind your main subject and in some cases (depending on the processing and type of photo taken) foreground objects actually appear to pop out of the print. The realism is astounding. No special glasses are required to view 3D lenticular prints. This N9000 is great for capturing those special moments in 3D such as weddings, birthdays and more. The N9000 is also useful for creating stereoscopic photos giving you a choice of three different levels of image depth. To capture an image in 3D, the camera takes four photos simultaneously from four different perspectives using a 35mm quadra lens system utilizing four identical lenses that are precisely aligned. The lenses have a fixed focal length and are focus free. 3D images are best when taken with focus free lenses because both near and far objects should always appear to be in focus for optimal 3D effects. This N9000's flash shoe accepts a standard flash such as the Nishika Twin Light 3010 (sold separately). The N9000 has a standard tripod mount on the base, and a built in hand trap. This package includes the camera, instruction manual, and updated instructions on where to process 3D lenticular prints. * Create 3D photos that will amaze your friends! * Built-in protective lens cover and hand trap * Standard flash shoe and tripod mount * Easy to use variable aperture for optimal exposure

    3It's not as easy as it seems
    By B. King
    Sure, it's cheap. Buying and developing your first roll of film will probably cost more than this camera. That doesn't mean it STAYS cheap. You're going to spend a lot of money if you want to learn how to use this camera properly.

    I bought it for the .gifs. If you search "Nishika" on tumblr, you'll find a lot of cool animated gifs where the frames flow back and forth, resulting in a shot that looks like the signature moments from "The Matrix", only instead of Keanu dodging bullets, you get to see people in giant sunglasses blowing cigarette smoke. Awesome.

    Out of the four rolls I went through before giving up on this camera, I think I pulled off three or four 3D gifs that I thought were acceptable. Coming from a digital photography and videography background (I primarily shoot with a Canon 1D MKIV), I forgot how challenging it is to expose on 35mm film with no light meter and only one choice for exposure settings (bright, or less bright). This is nothing like the 35mm disposable cameras that we've all used that somehow came out evenly exposed most of the time. This camera will result in dark or blown out frames four out of every five times you click the shutter. Since each exposure uses four frames of film, that adds up very fast.

    I am not entirely faulting the camera for its technical limitations. My inability to expose for it does fall heavily on me. I'm saying that you as a user will need to take a lot of time and effort to figure out how to make this thing work nicely, and that will be a fairly expensive process. Once you figure THAT out, you'll need to come up with a process to get your film developer to not crop your prints, then figure out workflow to scan and align the resulting images. Be prepared.

    The camera's packaging is very retro-sexy and hopefully will never change. The box is now a showpiece in my office that I'm more proud of than the images I've created with it. The camera itself is a hollow, moulded piece of plastic that feels like any other $12 35mm camera from the '90s. It's a very simple device, and does what it says it will do. Push a button and two frames of film will be exposed. Wind to the next two. Repeat.

    Searching for media and posts tagged "Nishika" will net you a lot of very cool pictures and moving images, but the purchase of this camera on its own is far from a promise that you'll be able to make the same things. Trying to become a Lenticular 3D photographer will take a lot of time, money, trial and error. Either be prepared for that kind of commitment, or leave it to the hipsters.

    2Broke pretty quickly
    By Erin
    When I first got the camera, it made a rattling sound like there was something loose and just rolling around in there, but everything seemed to be working fine. Halfway through the first roll though, the shutter stopped working. I'm going to try to fix it later, but to most people it probably wouldn't seem worth the trouble.

    I also have the n8000 and have had no problems with it. If you're looking to buy a Nishika camera I would definitely recommend the n8000 over the n9000.
