P.O.S. Camera of the day! The epically named but less than legendary Nishika N8000. Designed to create 3D photographs that could be viewed without glasses, this camera was such a market failure that you can still buy them factory sealed, just as they appeared in the 1980s. I picked one up (factory condition, including original batteries!) at the local $9.98 Or Less store for $5 and took it home, only to discover that every company that was ever able to process this camera’s creations has apparently gone bankrupt since. Lame.
If you do end up with one of these, there is a website featuring a tutorial on various hacks you can do to make it usable. I just opted to return mine.
