Today I am posting some shots from a ridiculous camera, the Nishika N8000 which was designed for making lenticular prints, a kind of layered 3D print that gave a bit of depth to a photograph. The camera has four lenses that simultaneously create four half-frame images on 35mm film. The images are nearly identical but not quite as they are beside each other and thus have a very slightly different point of view. Printing is now hard to come by, and extremely expensive, so I have made some animated gifs instead, as well as present the groups of four images, as single images because that is how I think of them.

I liked the idea of four nearly identical images treated as a single one and is a main reason I bought the camera. These tests show that a more graphic subject works quite well. Also, the vignetting helps the effect, at least in black…
