A Camera from the past
Photo: Dougie

On photo a day someone uploaded an old camera I'm uploading this 35mm Nimslo 3D camera with four lenses each taking a half frame photo so as to make a 3D image when developed, like to hear if anyone had one or seen one before and what did they think of it,they have stopped developing then now but can still use it to take one single shot and get four pictures at parts or weddings
