Homemade LC-Wide splitzer tipster

I've long been inspired by the glorious splitzered symmetrical redscale shots that @hodachrome - the Lomophenomenon we all know and love! - takes with his LC-A+, and wanted to see if I could get something similar. However, I only have an LC-Wide, and @LSI hasn't produced a splitzer for it yet, so first I had to make one myself. I decided to go for a really simple approach, as demonstrated in this tipster photo. I cut a 2cm-wide piece of black card and used small strips of electrical tape as 'hinges' to hold it in place across the bottom half of the lens. This allows the card to be flipped up across the top half of the lens for the 'upside-down' second exposure. It ain't pretty, but it's dirt cheap, quick to make and - most importantly - it works!! OK, tipster over - now please have a look at the shots I made with it. Thanks for your interest...! :-)

    That's a really clever way of doing this, that way you always split your photos along the same line.
