How to Make a Splitzer for the La Sardina by tomas-scigulinsky

For the version above by tomas-scigulinsky, you will need an empty plastic film canister to make your La Sardina a sleek splitzer. If you have a black one, all the better, so you won’t have to color it anymore.

What if you don’t have a black plastic film canister, can you still make a splitzer with it? Of course, you can! In the version above by
amkatya, you can use the usual white, translucent canister and its gray cap. If you have the white-capped version, you will need to paint it black to make the covered side light-proof.

Homemade Bottle-Cap-Splitzer for La Sardina / Diana Mini!

Last but not the least, we have the version above by an_lai_drew which uses a plastic bottle cap that can be fitted snuggly over the La Sardina’s lens. Be careful in cutting it out, as it can be more difficult to slice through compared to the thinner plastic film canisters!
