INSTALLING THE BATTERIES
1. The batteries
Three Eveready 386 silver oxide batteries have been packed separately in your camera package.
2. Opening the Battery Chamber
Insert a coin, or similar object, into the groove in the Battery Chamber Cover (23). Make a 1/3 turn, counter clockwise, and remove.
3. Battery Insertion Procedure
Insert the batteries one on top of the other into the Battery Chamber with the plus mark (+ ) facing into the camera. You may find more convenient to load the batteries by placing the flat plus (+) side of the battery against the bottom of the camera and slide it toward the opening of the Battery Chamber, as illustrated. Let each battery drop into the Battery Chamber until all three have been loaded. Return the Battery Chamber Cover and tighten.4www.butkus.org

2. Depress the Shutter Release Button Then press the Shutter Release Button (2) lightly while looking into the Viewfinder Eyepiece (15).
3. Green dot location In Viewfinder
4. Red dot location In Viewfinder
If a green dot appears at the bottom or a red dot in the center of the viewfinder, the batteries have enough power to operate your camera.
If neither signal appears, the batteries are either positioned incorrectly or have insufficient power and must be replaced.
LOADING & ADVANCING THE FILM
1. Uses 35mm color print film
Your Nimslo Camera uses all popular brands of 35mm color print film with a rating of either ASA 100 or 400. You may use any brand in 36, 24, 20 or 12exposure rolls. However, AGFA film is sold with pre-paid processing mailers which cannot be redeemed by Nimslo.
2. Two 35mm frames produce one 3-Dimenslonal photograph
The Nimslo 3-Dimensional process requires a group of four half-frame 35mm negative images to produce a 3-Dimensional photograph.
Therefore, HALF THE NUMBER OF PICTURES STATED ON THE FILM CASSETTE WILL BE PRODUCED ON ANY ROLL OF FILM USED IN YOUR NIMSLO CAMERA.
