Week 173 - Nimslo 3D

This camera from the 1970s takes four images simultaneously, which were then processed to make "lenticular" stereo prints. These are the ridged prints which were popular as postcards for some time, the Nimslo allowed the consumer to make their own (at a price). As far as I'm aware nobody is currently commercially processing films from the Nimslo, but animated GIF images can be made from scans of the negatives, though I quite like the simple repetition of four near identical pictures in a row. Each set of four images takes up the width of two standard 35mm frames, so a 36 exposure film will yield 18 sets.
