More, more 3-D photos. This time in the latest black & white technology. Ever wonder what happens when Fomapan 100 Black & White film meets a plastic 4-lens Nishika camera and go at it in Paris and Amsterdam? Well wonder no more !
Give this page some time to load. These GIFS are heavy. Unless you are here from the future on some crazy laser moon speed internet connection then nevermind.
I got my Nishika out for another adventure this time in the city that never sleeps and is therefore a bit cranky. The only city as far as I know that refers to itself as a fruit. NYC !
Taken with Fuji Superia 200 and my 4-lens Nishika plastic camera.

And the following were taken on the Tropical island of Aruba.
This isn’t supposed to be my Nishika Blog, but I’ve just had so much fun shooting with this plastic camera. I threw on a flash, got some friends together and had some beers. I did realize outside of 1.5 meters ( 6 foot for you yanks) the flash is pretty worthless, I tried some jumping pictures, but the flash couldn’t handle the distance.
This ain’t no avatar.
I got this camera a few years ago, put 2 rolls through it and they came back blank. Nothing, nada. I threw it in the bag of my closet and forgot about it. Now with this blog, I decided to have one last look at it and give it a final spin. I took it to a pinhole camera gathering in the Singapore Zoo. I filled it up and my expectations were nice and low. After picking up the scanned images I was impressed. I had to put the gifs together in Photoshop which resulted in pretty nice images. Now I am thinking of all the possibilities this camera has.
This was my first experience building a camera. It was an anniversary gift from my thoughtful girlfriend. Sadly the package only came with a Japanese only manual, but thanks to the this amazing set of connected tubes called the internet I was able to contact somebody at Sharan and get the English PFD instructions.
I put on some relaxing music and went to work. It took about one hour to put everything together and I was very careful not to touch the plate with the actual pinhole worried I would plug it up with some piece of dead skin or something.
I threw in Agfa Vista 100 film and went on my merry way to Haw Par Villa. It was my first time shooting with a pinhole and I didn’t feel like using a tripod so I just had to look around to find stable platforms because of the 4 to 5 second recommended exposure.
After picking up my scans I immediately noticed light leaks and some more light leaks. I had to do my best to contain these red streaks, but I did fire up another roll in my pinhole for another round of photos.
