Make a Splitzer for Your Belair X 6-12 Camera

4

Do you have a penchant for double exposures? Well if you do, then you better read these simple tips to achieve a Splitzer effect with our Belair!

I have always been attracted to double exposure shots, particularly those that are composed of two mirror images. Here you can see my first double exposures:

The pictures were just what I wanted. The effect I wanted was something like this:

To make these kinds of photos we need a Splitzer. Here’s what we need to build one for the Belair:

  • A film canister cap
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Cutter
  • And our Belair :)

First we take the lid of the roller door and with the help of a cutter, divide the surface in half. Be careful not to cut the edge.

After doing that, carefully remove other half of the surface so you get a semi-circle shape.

Take care to leave the whole circle intact (this will help us make our homemade Splitzer firmer.)

By trying the Splitzer on, we can see that it goes a bit ‘slow. Let’s fix this with electrical tape and do a few laps around the board. From time to time, try to see if it fits and moves perfectly.

Now we’re done! Off to shoot more Spliter photos!
