Product Description

Long considered the ugly duckling of the consumer lenticular cameras, the Nishika 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. And now as technology is making personal lenticular print making possible and affordable, there is a rush to get a camera or two before the price of a lenticular camera catches up with this new demand. FEATURES: * Exclusive quadra lens system incorporates four precision-matched lenses to produce 3D prints that rival other 3 lens lenticular cameras. * Uses standard 35mm color print film - ISO/ASA 200 for outdoors or 1600 for indoors. * Built-in protective lens cover. * Ergonomic design fits comfortably in your hands. * Rotary film advance. * Film counter. * Standard flash shoe * Easy to use variable aperture for optimal exposure control. * Film identification window. * Very light weight compact design for maximum portability.

Using flash with ASA 1600 film would be a complete disaster!
John A. Elson
The camera itself is great but it is expensive and hard to find places that can process the film because the original film processors are out of business.
Jean Nasser
If you want a better lenticular camera, its time to move on to Nimslo territory.

Well, OK...you are probably already living in the 3rd dimension, but that was the tag line for this camera. It was originally designed to take lenticular photos. The film was processed and printed in a specific way to create a print that looked 3-D. You can actually still have those types of prints made with this camera, but very few companies provide the service and the processing costs are prohibitive.

Pros: Exposes 4 half frames with each exposure and gives an Andy Warhol like effect (multiple repeating elements). Can be used for stereo pairs (1&4th frame being the strongest). Simple operation. Some toy camera like chic. Has tripod bushing and hot shoe built in. Attracts a lot of attention. Fun and easy to modify (for some ideas try Dr. Davidhazy's article [for the Nimslo, but the concepts are the same] [...]

Cons: Lackluster photographic controls. Single element plastic lenses that are barely strong enough to cover the 1/2 frame of film for which each is responsible. Expect vignetting. Far bigger than it needs to be. Fake pentaprism bump, fake LED screen, fake motor drive bump.

If you want a better lenticular camera, its time to move on to Nimslo territory. The cheap price of the Nishika N8000 camera makes it ideal to exercise your dremel tools and creativity. I predict that the Nishika will be the next big Lomography craze, so get them while they are cheap!

EDIT: After owning this camera for about a year, I decided to kick it up to 3 stars instead of two. While I still stand by my original review (unedited, below), I feel that shooting with this camera at least provides some entertainment. The results are not particularly moving, but they are unique. Also, the original review was written prior to coupling this camera with a flash on the hot shoe, which has also influenced me to change my rating. This camera is unique - for several good reasons and a number of lousy ones - but again at this price, it's cheap enough to splurge on for nothing more than curiosity's sake. It's grown on me, despite its shortcomings.

One last item for the edit: this camera does feature a frame counter - not a given in the toy camera market, but definitely necessary for a camera that shoots double-wide.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

When I bought this camera, I made the decision based on two factors: first, the diminutive price, and second, the fact that it used plastic lenses. I was hoping to have a camera which achieved a good lomo effect without dropping a lot of money (I believe most toy cameras to be highly overpriced). The results I got from this camera were lackluster and not particularly outstanding in any way.

This camera is a behemoth, covered in chintzy false-features (like the fake LCD and its non-existent pentaprism), but the camera itself feels fairly solid. The drive on this camera is a thumb crank, and all the batteries do is control a light sensor which flashes red if your lighting is too poor. Also, the battery lights an LED on the front of the camera to indicate that the battery is working, which I feel is dangerously close to useless.

I've used it for 2 rolls of film, it works great. Very basic, not for serious work but great for having fun, more than what I expected for the price.

It is odd that the description of the this camera states that the N9000 is strictly point without variable aperture and shoot yet the description for the N9000 correctly points out that it **DOES** have variable aperture!

The only functional difference between this camera and the N9000 is that this camera has f/19 in addition to f/8 and f/16. f/19 is only 1/2 stop smaller than f/16 so it won't make a noticeable difference with color print film. The N9000 has f/8 and f/16 which will do just as well. The N9000 is smaller and lighter and will easily fit in many pockets. Of the two Nishika cameras, the N9000 is clearly the better choice.

Speaking of the description, this same exact wording appears on every website and most eBay listings selling this item. This makes me wonder where it came from in the first place, especially since they all faithfully repeat the flat out lie about the N9000!

BTW, the ASA 100/400 switch on the Nimslo lets you adjust the exposure 2 f stops up or down. Giving just as much "creative" control while allowing good exposure under a wider range of lighting conditions.

The N8000 was designed for ASA 100 film and the "use flash" indicator is valid only for that speed and f/8. ASA 200 film will probably result in slight overexposure, but that wouldn't matter with color print film. ASA 1600 indoors is a really bad idea. With the widest aperture being f/8, and the shutter speed fixed at 1/60, there will be many situations where light is insufficient even for ASA 1600 film, and there is no way to know unless you use a separate light meter. Using flash with ASA 1600 film would be a complete disaster!

This camera is more of a collector's item than anything else.
