Fujifilm Rensha Cardia - Sweet Sixteen!

The Fujifilm Rensha Cardia BYU-N 16 is a bad ass Actionsampler's big brother. Packed with 16 lenses, you can either take individual photos or on a continuous series with its 20mm F9.5 lenses and a shutter speed of 1/250.

The 16 lenses are fired at ultra-high speed (0.3 seconds), fast (1.2 seconds) or medium-speed (2 seconds) … chosen by pressing a button beside the LCD at the top of the camera. The LCD displays the frame count as well as 16 numbered boxes which will be ‘blacked out’ once that particular shot has been taken.

Divided equally, the 16 shots are placed in two normal 35mm frames. Powered by 2 batteries (CR123A), this camera also auto advances and rewinds.

There is also a 8-lens version Rensha Cardia (which I once owned but died the day I dropped it. Duh!)

    Whoa! I submitted this ages ago and thought it won't see the light of day at all.

    @dirklancer : No, I didn't ebay it. Bought it from a local seller some time ago. I did have another version of it ... I think it was the 8 lens one but unfortunately I dropped it one day and it was dead. :( I cling on to this very carefully now. Haha.

    I have the Kalimar version of it, the action shot 16. Thinking of selling it, I need some cash, but have no idea what it would be worth... When I don't get enough I'll keep it. But didn't use it much so I think I won't miss it that much
