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

The Nishika N9000 is the smaller brother of the Nishika N8000. It has a fixed shutter speed of 1/60 second and two apertures, f8 and f16 (cloudy and sunny symbols). These cameras are VERY cheaply made with poor quality plastics and simple mechanical components. The shutter button is extremely stiff, and the shutter makes an amusing broken spring sound when fired. The camera should be handled and operated with great care to avoid breaking the shutter, film advance knob, rewind handle, and back door.

Even with the poor materials and design, this camera is still one of the best options for entry-level 3D photography. It doesn't have any complex electronics or light sensors to fail, and it doesn't use batteries. It's smaller than the N8000, and the two f-stops are enough to cover most situations within the latitude of the film used. 200-1600 speed film can be used to help adjust for different lighting conditions. The film can be developed at any local drugstore (request negatives only), and the negatives can be scanned at home. The resulting images can be used to create "wobble 3D" images. Lenticular printing is available through Snap3D.com if desired, but digital images are much cheaper and faster to produce with Photoshop or similar image editing software. Image morphing software such as Abrosoft Fantamorph helps make smooth transitions between images.

These cameras are not for beginners, but someone comfortable with scanning negatives and creating animated GIFs will find it fun to use.

Great camera. Takes nice pictures. And you don't need to use any special glasses to see the pictures in 3D. Use 200 color film for the outside pictures. I give this camera an A+ Go to [...] to develope your 3D pictures.

I purchased this camera. I don't know where the other reviewer purchased his camera from but the seller I purchased mine from shipped it with updated instructions on where to get the pictures processed. I sent my pictures in. They came out great. I now have 3D pictures of my daughter's birthday! This is really nice for capturing those special moments in 3D. The 3D lenticular pictures look fantastic!

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.

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.

I got this to make some 3d photos, but my camera unit didn't really work in many ways. First, it didn't work with a flash. I asked to return it, but the seller said he would refund half and we'll call it even.

Second, The shutter stays open at least 75% of the time. Half the roll that I shot on Sunday was over exposed to death. I've since tested the shutter and it seems it gets stuck open most of the time.

I wouldn't suggest this 3d camera.

Never really worked. This is my first 3D camera and it's sad to say it's not a good first experience. The only problem I had with it was the exposure counter not moving, which didn't let me take any photos. The shutter button won't even let me press it.
